What is a brand?
It’s simple; a brand is your unique identity. It doesn’t matter if it’s personal or professional; we all have our own uniqueness. Our personal brand is how others see us as an individual from being thoughtful, intelligent, or kind. A professional brand is how others see us in our specific professions from being a doctor, lawyer, or marketing expert.
The same applies to a business or company when it comes to branding. It is essential to create brand development and a brand strategy. Branding is much more than just building a logo and putting some creative together. It’s a way of defining your business to your audience, your team and yourself. There are many benefits to strategically defining your brand. Here are the top reasons why building a brand is important.
Creates Recognition: You want to leave a good impression on consumers and have them remember your company. If this is done right, then your brand is easy to recognize no matter where they see it. It could be on a billboard, in a magazine or online, but the important thing is that it shows consistency and recognition across the board. Think of how no matter where you are, the moment you see those golden arches, you immediately think of McDonalds.
Gains Trust: Building credibility and trust in a consumer is one of the top things every business must do. The more trust a consumer has in you, the more likely they are to make a purchase.
Generate New Customers: Branding helps your company to get referral business. Would you be able to tell a friend about the new jacket you love if you couldn’t remember the brand? We all know that there is nothing better than word-of-mouth marketing. It is our loyal customers who are influenced or encouraged by the brand and want to share it with their network.
Sets You Apart From Competition: In today’s market, it is critical to stand apart from your competition. How does your brand stand out from the thousands of similar companies around the world?
Brand building comes from strong ideas and is something you must hold on to, commit to and deliver. Your message needs to be clear and focus on the importance of the company. With brand building, you will see a tremendous amount of loyalty and advocates among your consumer base.
