WHY BRANDING MATTERS
A business and a brand go hand in hand. Your brand is how you control your company’s image and its message to consumers. That’s why businesses that don’t work on their branding still have a brand – it’s just not a very good one.
From standing out among the competition to retaining your clients, let’s go over all the benefits to having a brand.
Good brands catch the consumer’s attention
A good brand has a great visual design, a clear message, and tells a story about the company itself. Why? Because that’s what grabs your attention! These elements of a brand are what attract consumers to your company, as people are drawn to stories and ideas they can relate to. Targeting the right demographic and convincing people to invest in your product or service are the key payouts of a good brand, as well as the satisfaction in running a business that represents you!
In addition to attracting new customers, brands help retain those customers by inspiring brand loyalty. Think about it: people who have an iPhone usually stick with iPhones, and the same goes for Samsung and Google phones. This is because consumers identify with their brand! People are drawn to the stories these companies tell and find those stories reflected in their phones’ respective interface and design. Brands aren’t just about finding new customers, they’re about retaining them.
People pay more for good branding
Smart companies know this: consumers want to purchase products that they identify with and that reflect their personal values and beliefs. That’s why companies with strong brands are able to charge more for their products. Whether you incorporate being socially and environmentally conscious into your story, or whether you emphasize a commitment to style and originality, your brand attracts the people who are looking for you – and willing to pay big bucks for it!
Branding implies quality
Last, a strong brand implies a strong product. Companies with strong brands inspire trust in the product. Since the company has taken the time to deliver something professional and personalized, consumers are more likely to think they have also make the product of higher quality than competitors have. As a result, your brand garners more interest, retains more customers, and allows you to charge a higher price for a product well made!
