Understanding the branding basics

Many consider branding as just a general idea about the identity of your company and this is a mistake because branding is and should accomplish so much more than that. It is best to understand branding in the simplest terms possible, branding is simply what not only makes your company unique, but what makes it significantly different from you closest competitors. Simply registering a company name with the proper authorities isn’t enough to establish a brand.

Your company is a living breathing entity

A good way to look at branding is to view it as the essential element that changes your company from nothing more than a business into something that is living and breathing. This means your company should have a unique personality that immediately comes to mind when someone thinks of your company. This unique identity is the core of your business and it should bring together all the unique activities of a company into a single and consistent voice.

Consistency is the key

When it comes to true branding, consistency is truly the most important thing to consider. Your marketing actions, results, messages, and target market should always remain consistent. It takes time to develop an effective brand and straying to far from a consistent path will never allow your brand to truly take hold. Consider every possible element of your marketing campaigns and branding and make sure they stay consistent, this means logo design, colors, slogans, brochures, and documents should all support your brand in a consistent way.
