What is Branding?
Branding refers to the marketing and business strategies used to create an identifiable and unique image or perception of a product or business in a customer’s mind. Large companies spend millions of dollars building the recognizable Brands and company images we all recognize.
Why Branding is Crucial for Small Businesses
However, Branding is not just for large corporations. Branding is essential for small businesses because it:
- Makes you stand out from the competition;
Being able to compete with others in your field is critical. You may be selling comparable products or services. Branding is what makes you stand out from the competition.
- Makes it easier for customers to remember you;
Branding ensures customers remember you which makes repeat business more likely.
- Allows you to create a cohesive and coherent marketing strategy;
Building your marketing efforts around a consistent Brand makes your marketing efforts more harmonious and useful. Your social media marketing, print advertising and other efforts all complement each other because they use the same Brand markers.
- Connects you with customers;
Branding isn’t just about your products and services. Branding also includes how your company emotionally impacts your customers. Customers may feel more connected to a Brand that has similar values as they do. If your Brand “speaks” to customers, customers will want to work with you.
- Promotes employee loyalty and satisfaction; and
A strong Brand can make your employees feel proud of working with your company and can help them remain loyal. Employees are especially loyal if they strongly identify with what your Brand stands for regarding quality and service. Loyalty reduces turnover which is critical for small businesses.
- Makes good decision-making easier.
There may be fewer decision-makers in small businesses. It’s easy to attempt multiple projects, new launches, and new ideas. Strong Branding promotes clarity needed to make the right decisions. You make decisions based on whether it supports your Brand image or works against it.
