Branding Your Business
The process of branding your business should be considered an extremely important part of your marketing plan. The branding of your company should be a two part process. You need to establish both a visual brand and a conceptual brand for your company.
Having a professionally designed logo is an investment well made. A professional image goes a long way towards instilling a perceived value in your company. When a prospective client sees your image for the first time, a professionally designed logo will promote the image of an established company that will be there for their client’s needs. In addition to the logo, you may want to include a tagline. The tagline should be a short promotional statement promoting the product or service your company provides.
Producing your conceptual brand is equally as important as the visual brand. When you conceptually brand your company, you want to promote the concept that your company’s products and services are superior to those of your competitors. Think about what sets your company apart from your competition (your Unique Selling Proposition) and promote it. For example, FNBR has been family owned and operated for 35 years. When we brand that information, we are letting our clients and prospects know that we are an established company, that we are experienced at what we do and that we will be there for them in the future.
Unlike your logo, which is usually a constant, your conceptual branding can and should be tweaked over time. Your goal is to let the public know that your company has the expertise and ability to solve their particular problem or need.
