Show Notes

Branding is more than logos…

In this episode, we discuss what branding is and what it is not, as well as why branding even matters. Generally, people associate branding with primarily logos and websites, but it is going far beyond that on many levels. If this topic interests you, take a listen below to the new podcast episode and learn how your branding or lack of branding is impacting your business.

“Your brand is what other people say about you when you’re not in the room.” -Jeff Bezos

3 Reasons Branding Is Important

You need recognition. If someone goes to your website and has no idea who you are and what you do. You have lost a potential client. It’s that quick. 3-5 seconds on average. As a web designer for 20 years, I can tell you how quickly a person will leave a site if they have no idea what they are dealing with or have no easy way to interact with said site.

Branding helps people know who to expect from you. If I market my web and graphic design business and brand it as such, people know they can come to me for that. Will clients come to me that want accounting, no. I am situated in a niche market, I proclaim what I do, I am branded as such which leaves no one to “try to figure it out”. They know what to expect from me.

Creates loyal customers and referrals. Which creates growth and longevity in your business. If you provide a service or product without visible branding how can this be passed onto others with ease? How can I refer you? If you don’t have a logo, a website, social media, anything that showcases who you are that is concise and branded, you will get lost in the mix.

5 Questions To Ask Yourself About Your Business

Do I have any branding?
If I do, is it good branding?
Does the brand relate to my target audience? Will they instantly “get it” without too much thought?
Does the brand reflect the values that I want to represent to my customers?
Why do you want your brand to represent in your industry?
