What is Branding?

Branding is the marketing practice of creating an easily recognised name and logo to which your products/services can be associated, and by which your business can be distinguished from its competition.

Why is Branding Important?

We’re sure to give attention to our appearance before attending a job pitch or interview because we know a great deal rides on that first impression. Before you open your mouth, let alone a portfolio, your audience has begun making judgements. The same is true of your company branding.

Like a shopfront or book jacket, your branding will say something about your business beyond products or services.

Like an ambassador or envoy, it will represent your business with a reach beyond any other means of promo.

Think of the logos you see in a retail park, on the side of an HGV, or on a high street billboard. They spearhead your public persona. Whether you mean to or not, you’re going to leave an impression on your market. Make sure it’s a good impression.

'You’re going to leave an impression on your market. Make sure it’s a good impression.'

Boost Revenue

A business card is a simple but often sought means of connection, even in our digital age. How many times have you requested a business card or been asked for a business card?

Branding can lead to a phone call, email, or visit to your website that, in turn, leads to a commission and an increase in revenue, not to mention the spreading of your company’s reputation.

Reputation

Given time, a good logo will come to symbolise what you do and how well you do it, without mentioning your line of work, or even your business’ name.

Take these examples:

Direction & Purpose

Branding can also prove beneficial to the internal workings of your business.

It can boost team moral by instilling a greater sense of professionalism, and a deeper belief in your direction and purpose.  

Trust

Branding will help attract business because it helps instil a sense of authenticity and professionalism in your services.

Branding to your letterhead and website is like a suit and tie to a financier, or a clean set of tools to a tradesman. You need to look the part if you want to be taken serious and the same applies with your publicity.
