There is more to a successful business than just good branding, BUT it plays an important role…
“A passionate belief in your business and personal objectives can make all the difference between success and failure. If you aren’t proud of what you’re doing, why should anybody else be?”
MY TOP 3 TIPS and advice for any business owner that is trying to build a brand or expand their business are:
1. CREATE A BRAND YOU ARE REALLY, REALLY PROUD OF
If you love your brand and are proud of the design, what it represents and how it makes people feel, you are more likely to promote it in a positive way that connects to your audience. People appreciate good design practice and it shows that you value and respect your brand.
2. AN IMAGE CAN SAY SO MANY THINGS
For this to be a good thing, you need to create a visual presence that represents your brand and showcases not only your products and services, but your brand image. Use professional photographs, avoid stock images (where possible) and utilise a custom colour pallet that compliments your branding. Show your uniqueness!
3. CONSISTENCY REPRESENTS QUALITY
Be consistent in your branding and style. You need to create a brand image and have it reflected consistently on all your print and online advertising spaces. Your website should be an extension of your brand, consistent in colour pallet and imagery, professional, easy to navigate, have a purpose and encourage your target audience to take action. All other print material such as business cards, stationary and signage should spread your brand awareness. As should all social media pages and external advertising.
If you are trying to build, rebuild or revamp your business brand please protect it and understand the value of good design. In business it is very much about perception, if your brand or website looks dated and tired, that will become peoples opinion of your business.
