Branding is the hottest buzzword in today’s business industry. Not so long ago, branding was a concept understood only by marketing wizards, but today more and more small businesses understand the power of image. So what exactly is branding, and how is it done right?
What is Branding?
Branding is a concept designed for a certain product or service, which targets specific consumer audiences. For example, let’s say you own a bar and you want it to appeal to 20 and 30-year old populations. In order to achieve your goal, you have to perform certain actions. High-quality branding isn’t achieved overnight. It’s a process that establishes a set of values that appeal to its designated target audiences. To enhance the chance for success, businesses can use social media and brand ambassadors to promote their brand.
Why is Branding so Important?
Many people think that their product is the key to their success. They forget that we all live in a world where image is everything. It doesn’t matter how good your product is, if it doesn’t correspond with certain values that appeal to your target audience.
Nevertheless, living in a high-paced world does hold certain advantages. Thanks to today’s digital environments, we can all execute marketing strategies that were considered impossible just a few years ago. Thousands of people can be exposed to our marketing message at the touch of a button.
How Can we Use the Data we Have to Create High-Quality Branding?
High-quality branding begins with defining our customers’ needs, and creating an appropriate marketing response. It’s important to perform a thorough market analysis that includes: persona creation, focus groups and trend analysis. Before we begin branding, we need to do our homework. We also have to define our brand’s values and differentiation from the competition. Differentiation can be enhanced via a unique story, a special concept or pricing.
The Branding Operation
Now that we’ve defined what branding is and why it is so important, we can focus on the branding process. These include a visual upgrade of all marketing materials: website, Facebook page, Instagram page and more. Let’s not forget about business cards and other printed materials, as well. Once we’ve completed that phase, we can use reliable PR channels to get the word out.
