Branding – Do It Bigger and Better
No matter the size of the enterprise or the line of work, every business owner knows that branding is essential to creating long-term success. In a world where consumers can research a brand around the clock on the Internet, well-done, memorable branding is more important than ever before. There is a lot of information out there about how to make your brand bigger and better – and you need to read it. But business owners, entrepreneurs and executives are busy and don’t always have the time to wade through thousands of pages of info to find out how to improve their brand. So, where should you start?
Make the Most of Branding Tips
For business leaders, resources about branding are easy to find. All it takes is an Internet search or article in a trade magazine to provide basic facts about branding, but it’s important that leaders also know how to make tips translatable to their own enterprises. It’s easy to say that your brand should be authentic and that consumers should be able to relate to it, but how do you actually accomplish those goals?
Shallow though it might sound, outward appearances are a good place to start. Any business leader who’s spent time reading marketing tips online or in trade publications knows that making a good visual impression is a key aspect of branding. Memorable logos, professional print materials and strong color choices all contribute to a consumer’s ability to relate to a brand. Catchphrases and logos that reflect the personalities of brands are particularly popular among consumers.
Your Products Wear Your Brand
However, logos and ad materials represent only a small portion of the visual branding that consumers see on a daily basis. Perhaps more important is the packaging businesses choose for their products or sales kits. When consumers think of successful brands such as Coca-Cola and Barbasol, the packages and labels used for these products immediately come to mind. You might not know when Coca-Cola was founded or who owns the company today, and that’s okay. You know what a bottle of Coca-Cola looks like and can select one with confidence in any store.
Packaging is also as essential means of setting a brand apart. There’s no mistaking a bottle of Pepsi for a bottle of Coca-Cola, and the same should be true about your business and its competitors. Focusing on the visual aspects of branding that actually matter to your clients on a daily basis is one of the best ways to set the course towards bigger, better, more lucrative branding.
