In today's fast-paced world, it is more important than ever to promote recognition of your product or service amidst a sea of other brands out there. If you're remembered as a quality service or product provider, then you will be encouraging repeat business. Branding is a great way to promote this recognition because people are busy and tend to adhere to familiarity. If consumers recognize a brand they have previously used and they remember being satisfied with it, then they are more likely to choose that product or service again.
Many small organizations and start-ups neglect spending necessary time thinking about their brand in this broad sense and the impact it has on their business.
Branding will promote recognition of your product / service
People tend to do business with companies they are familiar with. If your branding is consistent and easy to recognize, it can help people feel more at ease purchasing your products or services.
Your brand will help you stand out from your competitors
In today's global market, it is critical to stand apart from the crowd. You are no longer competing on a local stage, your organization now competes in the global economy. How do you stand out from the thousands or millions of similar organizations around the world?
A strong brand will promote referrals
People love to tell others about the brands they like. People wear brands, eat brands, listen to brands, and they're constantly telling others about the brands they love. On the flip side, you can't tell someone about a brand you can't remember. A strong brand is critical to generating referrals or viral traffic.
A strong brand helps your customers know what to expect
A brand that is consistent and clear puts the customer at ease, because they know exactly what to expect each and every time they experience the brand.
Your brand helps you connect with your customers emotionally
A good brand connects with people at an emotional level, they feel good when they buy the brand. Purchasing is an emotional experience and having a strong brand helps people feel good at an emotional level when they engage with the company.
A strong brand provides your business value
A strong brand will provide value to your organization well beyond your physical assets. Think about the brands that you purchase from (eg. Coca-Cola, Apple). Are these companies really worth their equipment, their products, their warehouses, or factories? No, these companies are worth much more than their physical assets, their brand has created a value that far exceeds their physical value.
