Seminar paper from the year 2002 in the subject Business economics - General, Nürtingen University (FB BWL), course: Seminar, 12 entries in the bibliography, language: English, abstract: Image - the key to success. In fact, a positive image matters for a company to be successful and it is a good opportunity to get positive publicity. On the other side there are other things, which are important to be successful. There are management ratios like productivity, profitability, liquidity and many other ratios, which count in order to value a company numerically. In my following work, I will only refer to the image. Image is not only developed through advertising. The products should suit the corresponding brand and the selected advertising medium should support the brand and its image through its means of communication in order to create a total image of the company, the brand and the products. The brand and the image of a company represent the promise that products and services will perform to expectations. The identity-oriented marketing of a brand and its products contributes in addition to revalue a company identity through good image. In this connection, I will focus more closely on the importance of brand identity and brand marketing. Furthermore, I will base my report on Thermador, an American kitchen appliance manufacturer, where I conducted my internship, to clarify the important role of Image. Thermador's corporate office is located in Huntington Beach, California. All employees of hierarchy level and departments are located here. Since my internship experience was conducted with Thermador, it enabled me to develop a deeper insight into the company and the brand. Thermador was bought in 1998 on its good image by the German company Bosch-Siemens-Home Appliances Ltd. and is banished almost exclusively in North America. The brand Thermador represents qualitatively high-value built-in appliances and has established, over a period of more than 70 years, an outstanding name in the home appliances industry throughout North America.
