Branding is one of the most important aspects of any business, large or small, retail or B2B. An effective brand strategy gives you a major edge in increasingly competitive markets. But what exactly does "branding" mean? How does it affect a small business like yours?
Simply put, your brand is your promise to your customer. It tells them what they can expect from your products and services, and it differentiates your offering from your competitors'. Your brand is derived from who you are, who you want to be and who people perceive you to be.
Are you the innovative maverick in your industry? Or the experienced, reliable one? Is your product the high-cost, high-quality option, or the low-cost, high-value option? You can't be both, and you can't be all things to all people. Who you are should be based to some extent on which your target customers want and need you to be.
The foundation of your brand is your logo. Your website, packaging and promotional materials--all of which should integrate your logo--communicate your brand.
We bring ideas to life, creating a strategy and visual identity to successfully communicate your brand.
Whether you are a startup business or a Fortune company, our process allows us to understand and connect your audience, engaging them in your authentic brand story.
Things have changed for your business over the years and it’s time to re-evaluate your brand to make sure that it’s clearly reflecting the grand vision (you do have one don’t you?). Many of the established companies that come to us are looking to refresh their identity in order to increase their relevance to their stakeholders. This in turn leads to a great sense of pride for the brand both inside and outside of the company.
Probably one of the most significant outcomes of our branding process is the clarity and focus that it generates for your leadership team. It has a rejuvenating effect on the entire company—a renewed sense of purpose that goes deeper than some cheap marketing gimmick or incentive ever could.
