content marketing strategyWhat is Company Branding? Why Is It Important?

Company Branding is a strategy of marketing your business in such a way that it becomes recognised, trusted and associated with a range of products or services. Essentially your branding is what makes your business unique compared to all the other companies that provide a similar service to you. It’s seen as your business’s personality and it should aim to boast everything that makes your company special. In today’s world markets where competition is very tough, having a strong branded company will help to guide you to success.

 

 What Is Required to Produce Your Company Branding?

1. An Understanding of Your Target Audience

In order to help build a strong brand, you need to fully understand the target audience you are aiming at. This involves understanding your customer values and focusing your brand towards the main customer that would be interested in what you provide.  If you fail to recognise who you are marketing your products and services to, then it will have a small and unsatisfactory impact.

2. Strong Brands have Promise, Personality and Position

All good brands need a healthy brand promise, personality and position.

  1. A good brand promise aims to match your customers’ needs with the product or service you are trying to market.
  2. Brand Personality should be all about how authentic your business is and its overall uniqueness. You should provide a great service that you are able to consistently deliver to each and every client.

 So what are the overall advantages of creating a strong company brand?

 Memorability – Company branding will help allow you to become instantly recognised for particular products and services you provide. Customers may remember your logo, or your company name.

 Increased Loyalty – Giving customers a positive experience from a memorable brand means that they are more likely to make further purchases from you again in the future. When customers bond with a brand identity they are not only likely to make another purchase, but may also be encouraged to buy other related items made by the same brand.

Over time this may also lead to a customer recommending the brand to others and this means that when other competitors try to lure them in with offers and other deals, they are more likely to visit you instead because of the recommendation. The overall point is that the brand identity you create will help to anchor customer’s loyalty and will help make more sales in the future.

 Premium Branding – When customers shop around they often like to look for the cheap and cheerful deals. However research has shown that many shoppers go for the premium, best known brands in order to get the best possible service from a product. By creating a brand of premium branded products this means you can avoid price drops and can attract custom in other ways than cutting prices.

 Future Extensions – Once you have conquered one corner of the market this does not mean that you are land-locked there. Because of your recognised brand you can design and market other products and services that may be in a different niche to your original ones. You can repeat the same process again and again until you grow into a company covering multiple markets.

 Less Risk for Consumers – When a consumer is looking at making a wise decision as to what product to buy, they tend to choose the one that has a brand name over the one without a brand name.
