Your brand identity is a crucial component to the long term success of your business. Consumers identify with trustworthy brands and often become loyal clients as a result of the message that a brand conveys or the outward appearance and quality of the products that the company in question provides. By tapping in to the psyche of your target audience you can better identify their wants and needs, enabling you to align your business with their requirements.
Building Brand Identity
Building a brand identity is an ongoing challenge that requires you to emphasise the strengths of your brand over the competition. However, what makes a brand successful is more than just the sum of the parts of your visual identity.
A brand represents the heart and soul of a group or organisation, including the promises it makes, its effectiveness at delivering those promises, the people it employs and the way they treat each other and those with whom they come into contact. These factors combine to create honest and sincere “brand values” and these will inevitably include product quality, product variety and exclusivity among others.
Emphasis of your core brand values gives your organisation its personality, and it is this personality that existing customers are reminded of and reassured by when confronted with so called “competitors” Association and comfort in your brand breeds loyalty in turn has the capacity to engender strong relationships. These relationships are then manifested in acceptance, loyalty and continued use and purchase of your products and services. Brand loyalty is the ultimate goal upon which real and tangible value can be attributed.
