building a brand
What is meant by ‘building a brand’?
Your customers have a relationship with your brand made through numerous touch-points. These include, for example, your sales team, packaging, logo design and business stationery (and lots more). Brand building is about ensuring that each of these touch-points reflects your company values and overarching principles. It secures a place in the mind of your customers.
What can building a brand do for me?
Your customers have to make a choice. We want them to choose your company over others - and we‘re all aware that the marketplace becomes more competitive each day. Weaker brands will not win as much custom, whilst a strong brand will create stickiness, value and recognition of your product or service. As a consequence, you will retain your customers. Those that identify with your brand will pay a premium, or buy more of your product for longer.
