There is a common misconception that branding only means having a fancy logo with matching business cards. Small businesses especially, do not invest enough on their branding efforts because they see themselves only as a business and not as a brand. But branding goes way beyond the graphic elements in a business website or social media pages.
The simplest way to explain branding is how customers perceive your business. This means every aspect of your company has an impact on your brand including the images you use, how you talk to your customers, the way you present yourself online and everything in between. Your branding, in other words, is the face and personality of your business.
If you are still unsure why branding is important, here are a few of the benefits of investing in your branding efforts.
Branding builds trust
Branding represents who you are as a business. So when you present yourself in a professional way, you will be able to show that you are a company that is credible and trustworthy. This is one of the most important aspects that people consider when purchasing a product or service so having a good branding strategy will set you apart from your competitors.
Branding creates loyal customers and generates new ones
Customers are more likely to stick to a company if they see that the brand is consistent and deliver on what they promise so this should be reflected in how you market yourself. Loyal customers are the best advocates for your brand because they can share their experiences and be able to persuade other potential leads.
Branding supports marketing and advertising
Once you have created your brand, it will be easier to promote your products or services. Having a clear message and brand personality will be the foundation of all your marketing efforts and will definitely benefit your business in the long run.
