For most companies, building your brand’s identity is paramount. Businesses with a recognizable and memorable brand enjoy a “leg-up” on the competition because they don’t have to keep reminding clients or customers that they are there. Your brand’s identity are the visual elements (color, design, logo, etc.) that people can recognize and correlate with your products or services.
It is crucial that your brand’s identity be cohesive, consistent, and memorable. To establish a strong brand identity, you should take the following steps:
- Understand who you are and your ideal client group
- Know your company’s strengths and weaknesses (many people recommend performing a SWOT analysis to fully understand both the opportunities and challenges)
- Make sure your brand identity matches your business goals and the goals of those in your client group
- Focus your messaging. Don’t try to be everything to everyone. To establish a strong brand identity, establish a consistent personality and voice for your company, and make sure the message remains coherent
