“To thrive and break-even in the current highly competitive global marketplace, you need to create a strong Brand Identity for your Business”
Brand identity is the differentiator that set your business apart from others. Brand identity characteristics are both visual in nature and used subconsciously by customers or clients to form mental pictures of your business. It’s the personality of your business or brand.
Five Reasons Why Your Business Needs a Brand Identity Today!
A business logo, slogan, and personality determines whether your sales and clients will increase or decrease. This is because brand identity does the following:
Informs your Customers
Your brand informs your customers that you are a well-established business. A suitable logo, slick website, and professionally printed business cards give the impression of a long standing business, therefore informing your customers that you are stable and reliable.
Attracts more Clients
Brand identity helps to attract more customers and clients as they are always looking for credible and professional business partners. Good logos and other marketing materials convey messages of credibility and professionalism to your potential customers. This leads to higher conversion, therefore you get increased revenue and profitability.
Brand identity will serve to form mental maps in the minds of your potential customers, especially visual elements.
“It should be noted here that people see and remember; while they hear and forget”
Excellent graphics and other visual marketing materials will provide a memorable business and brand identity to your customers. An image will linger in the minds of your customers, and they are then more likely to choose your product over others.
Excellent brand identity gives the impression that it is big, strong, and other similar impressions, even if that’s not true. If your business is using business cards and other materials printed at home with your laptop using Microsoft Word Art, your customers are likely to notice. However, branding your business materials with high-quality designs will tell your customers that your business is reliable and professional.
Brand identity is also used to express a sense of commitment to your business, customers and other stakeholders. It serves to differentiate your business from the others and create a form of brand loyalty.
