What is a brand?
Updated: Oct 18
A brand is the identity of your business. It is the emotional response customers have about your product or service and it is your reputation. It’s more than just a logo or slogan.
To create a strong brand for your business you need to:
Set some core brand values – what does your company strive to achieve?
Be clear, relevant and engaging to your target audience – what’s in it for them?
Create a positive emotional reaction beyond just looking “good”- every aspect of your product and service must be strong; not just your image.
Promote your brand externally, and also within your organisation – your employees must “live the brand”. They must believe and breathe your values.
Have the ability to adapt in different economic climates – you must be resilient to all market conditions
Continually reinforce – the marketplace must be constantly reminded of your brand to stay recognisable. Don’t get complacent.
Be consistent across all touch points – all customer materials must have the same look and feel.
Re-in force with staff or any third parties acting on behalf of your business – everyone must reflect your business’ personality.
