4 Things to Know About Your Brand

By Alease McClenningham

Your brand defines who you are and what you do, while also setting you apart from others like you. It emphasizes the unique value that you offer your customers.

It’s the reason they buy from you and not from someone else. Your brand is communicated through everything your business does, from its logo to the products, services and promotions it offers.

Who is your business?

In order to formulate your brand, you have to see how your business is viewed by your potential clients.

Who do they see you as?

What are your beliefs as they perceive them?

It’s useful to think in terms of personal characteristics, even if you’re considering the personality of a company. Just like a person, a business can be brash and bold, or it can be gentle and unassuming. It can be smart, strong, athletic, youthful or conservative.

Know your clients

The most important part of developing your brand is getting to know your clients. Brands don’t actually exist in the objective world. They exist inside the minds of clients.

So, you need to get inside your clients’ heads and understand what they think and how they feel about you.

You need to understand the demographic you cater to, as well as psychological factors such as how they see themselves and how they think about money. You should know their buying habits, which brands they buy from, and how they feel about these brands.

Consistency is key to branding

A good brand is consistent. You should present the same message every time they come into contact with you. Consistency is especially important online where you have many more touch points with your target audience.

Apple is a company that does this well. Their brand communicates that they produce the trendiest, high tech products that improve our lives, and that are clean, simple and easy to use. Their marketing, their products, and their customer service all strive to communicate this message.

All in the mind of your clients

Always remember that a brand is in the clients’ mind, not in the real world. It’s not necessarily what you sell, but what your market perceives it to be. Aim to make positive connections in client’s minds with your business.

This is why people pay so much money for Rolex watches, even today when we all have cell phones that tell time for us. There is still something about a Rolex watch in the buyer’s mind that conveys much more than a timepiece.

It communicates luxury, craftsmanship, and even the culture and history behind the Rolex watch.

This is what you call a GREAT BRAND.

  270. I know this if off topic but I’m looking into starting my own blog and
    was wondering what all is needed to get setup? I’m assuming having a blog like
    yours would cost a pretty penny? I’m not very internet smart so I’m not
    100% certain. Any tips or advice would be greatly appreciated.

  271. Howdy! Quick question that’s totally off topic.
    Do you know how to make your site mobile friendly?

  274. Undeniably believe that which you said. Your favorite reason seemed to be on the internet
    the easiest thing to be aware of. I say to you, I definitely get
    irked while people consider worries that they just do not know about.
    You managed to hit the nail upon the top and defined out the whole thing without having side-effects ,
    people could take a signal. Will likely be back to get
    more. Thanks

  275. You really make it appear really easy with your presentation but I find this
    topic to be really something which I think I would
    by no means understand. It kind of feels too complex and extremely extensive for me.
    I am having a look ahead on your subsequent publish, I will
    attempt to get the hold of it!

  276. Hey there I am so glad I found your weblog, I really found
    you by mistake, while I was searching on Yahoo for something else,
    Nonetheless I am here now and would just like to say thanks for a tremendous
    post and a all round exciting blog (I also love the theme/design), I don’t have time to read through it all at
    the moment but I have saved it and also added in your RSS feeds, so when I have time I will
    be back to read a lot more, Please do keep up the superb job.

  277. Hey there! I know this is somewhat off topic but I was wondering if you knew
    where I could get a captcha plugin for my comment form?
    I’m using the same blog platform as yours and I’m having difficulty finding one?

    Thanks a lot!

  278. I’ve been surfing online greater than three
    hours today, yet I by no means discovered any interesting article like yours.
    It’s lovely worth sufficient for me. Personally, if all webmasters
    and bloggers made excellent content material as you probably did,
    the internet might be much more helpful than ever before.

  279. Hi this is kinda of off topic but I was wondering if blogs use WYSIWYG editors or if
    you have to manually code with HTML. I’m starting a blog soon but have no coding experience so I wanted to get
    guidance from someone with experience. Any help would be enormously appreciated!
