Set yourself apart
Branding is one of the most important aspects of any business, large or small, online, retail or B2B. An effective brand strategy is a must in today’s competitive markets. So what exactly does branding mean? How does it affect a small or large business?
Branding is one of the first things any business starting out needs to tackle. Determining your “look and feel” could determine whether you’ll be successful or not. For any new brand, product or service it is essential to take your time to think long-term. Decipher how you want to be perceived in the public eye.
- Take your time to define your target audience. Keep in mind not to target for yourself, but your ultimate customers. The single biggest mistake amateur designers make is branding for their own personal preferences. A great designer designs with purpose and creates unique experiences.
- Be unique. Find that special look and don’t copycat. Knock-offs are cheap. Is that how you want your brand to come across?
- Invest a portion of your budget for good clean design. Poor design is the quickest way to send customers running. Investing in design is critical.
- Define your advertising channels. Besides the internet, consider print, outdoor media, TV and radio.
