As online shoppers, social media followers, and an overall technology-driven society branding your business is an incredibly important but sometimes overlooked necessity. Branding is crucial to your business because it leads to strong brand equity. Your brand is the story you’re telling potential customers, and the promise that you make to your clients.
There are dozens of reasons why you should build a strong brand for your business, but we’ve narrowed it down to three main points:
1. Brand Awareness + Recognition. Consistency will build recognition.
In a visually driven world, brand awareness is the first impression that you’ll make on your potential customers. Think about it for a second, how often do you think of a brand or message because something just stuck with you. Now that’s the power of brand awareness, recognition, and consistency. Perhaps it was a logo, a slogan, or maybe you hear the commercial on your morning commute. Branding makes a big impact on everyone's everyday life, whether you realize it or not!
2. Drive Referrals- if someone is proud of what your brand represents.
Branding doesn’t end with a cool business name and fancy logo, your brand is everything your business stands for, doesn’t stand for, and the story you’re telling in every message you send.
If your customers are proud of what you stand for, or they share similar values and aspirations as your brand they’re going to sing it from the rooftop! That’s the best type of customers you want, the ones that will buy your product and happily spread the word to people they just know will love it too!
3.Supports your marketing efforts. Clear company message and personality. People know what to expect and will trust new products.
To put it simply, good branding helps your customers trust you, your products, and your business integrity.
Think about it this way, would you buy a vehicle from a brand that is always changing its message, audience, logo, and coming out with new crazy models every year? Probably not. When companies aren’t confident about their own product you don’t want to invest in their company or get behind the wheel in one of their models!
Branding your business is a crucial step before launching new products, marketing campaigns, or trying to get people to buy into your brand. It is easily overlooked and is one reason why some businesses just can’t seem to get to the next level.
