The results of the study found that the branding innovation of the Mayor of Bengkulu was built from his personal branding. Branding innovation is deliberately done to make something new and different from previous mayors. In creating a positive brand (label) for the Mayor of Bengkulu and can be trusted by the public, of course, it is supported by the Bengkulu City Government's public relations communication strategy. The Bengkulu mayor's branding innovation with slogans offers something unique and different. The brand (label) created by Bengkulu City Government Public Relations is the 8 Tekad Bengkuluku 2017 program (Clean, beautiful, cool, healthy, safe, religious, creative and safe) with the motto of hard work, sincere work and smart work. Actually, the initial concept of the brand (label) that wanted to be created at the time of the nomination was the figure of a leader who was loyal to the community and delivered the one billion program for one village, repairing roads and other infrastructure which were the basic needs of the people of Bengkulu City. So far, the Bengkulu City Government Public Relations strategy has been quite successful in creating a brand (label) for the Mayor of Bengkulu for the 2017-2021 period but only to the extent of creating a brand, while the results are still not felt by the people of Bengkulu City.
