Next Generation of Window Branding?

THE TALK... | Sales & Marketing

We see some interesting news this week in the window and door industry that focuses on branding. First, we see the resurgence of the Stanley brand in the door arena. That should be a name brand many homeowners remember from years ago.

But what really got my attention was the Kathy Ireland backing of Window World products. Who would have thought? I guess it shouldn't be surprising given that celebrities' names on towels and bedroom sheets give us a certain impression of quality—why not windows and doors? 

So what do you think of Window World's celebrity affiliation? Do you think it will comfort busy working moms as the Kathy Ireland brand intends? Do you think we'll see more brand associations like this in the future? Send me an email and let me know if you think this is the start of something big in window and door branding to consumers.

Will we see additional co-branding in the window and door industry to bolster consumers' trust?
Yes, it's a likely trend.
No, it will be limited.
Not sure yet.

I know this if off topic but I'm looking into starting my own weblog and was curious what all is required to get
set up? I'm assuming having a blog like yours would cost a
pretty penny? I'm not very web smart so I'm not 100% certain.
Any recommendations or advice would be greatly appreciated.
Appreciate it
