Your brand is the handshake of your company, that bond between you and your clients and the other companies you do business with. The purpose of branding is to establish that bond and build trust with those who consume your products and services to create loyalty.
In this blog post, we’ll discuss the importance of stellar branding and three tips on how to allow your brand to rise above the noise. Below is a transcript of Devin Herz’s DMC Marketing Nugget that’s filled with great nuggets to improve your company’s brand identity.
Because the branding of your business is of the utmost importance, we’ll dive right into these three tips now:
1 – Establishing Trust.
When customers see your brand, you want to make sure they know you are a company they can trust; your brand is more than just your logo. Your brand should elicit thoughts and feelings in your clientele. The number one thought your customers and prospects should feel is trust. Does your brand deliver on its promises? Does it go the extra mile? Is your brand consistently offering value? Those are just a few questions that you should ask yourself about your brand.
2 – Your Brand and Identity
Remember logos are an important part of your brand identity, but they are not the most important part. While getting the look and feel of the company identity just right is critical, the brand identity that people will remember is how their interaction with you and your brand made them feel. The intangible elements of your company, the personality, emotion, and posture are what establish your brand’s image and identity more than the sharpest, most colorful, and best-executed logo ever can. Taking the time to discover the needs of your preferred client by stepping into their shoes is key. Ask yourself how you would you like to be served. This is yet another way to discover your company’s brand identity.
3 – What Sets You Apart from the Competition
When considering the purpose of branding and what sets your company apart from others in your industry there are many questions you must ask yourself. One of these questions is “what is the most effective strategy my brand can employ that would impress our customers at every opportunity.” This goes past even the quality of your product or service to the ability of your staff to go above and beyond, to help each customer and provide them with the best care before, during, and after whatever project or sale is made. When all this is said and done, you want your clients to look for reasons to do more business with you, and of course, refer others.
