Did you know that 82% of businesses fail due to a lack of cash flow? That is a terrifying statistic for someone attempting to invent their brand. But the thing to do here is to understand why there is a lack of money going into these businesses.
You have to ask yourself what these failed businesses did for their brand and whether they made it stand out from the competition.
True, learning how to create a brand that will stand out amongst the millions of other stores and online shops is difficult. That doesn’t mean it is impossible, though.
Certain brands are better than others for a variety of reasons. If you want your brand identity to be unique, keep reading for our top branding tips.
Think About Your Purpose
Before anything else, sit down and consider the purpose of your brand. Is it to sell a product or service? Or is it for community outreach?
When customers visit your website, they want a clear overview of your services. No one wants to be confused about what services you offer.
To avoid that, ensure that everything coincides with each other. Do not offer different types of services that don’t even fall into the same category. For instance, if you sell hair vitamins, stick to other services relating to health and lifestyle.
Study Your Competition
Always look at your competition and how they market their small business brand. Ask yourself things like:
- What makes them successful?
- What is the first thing I notice about their brand?
- Is their labeling pleasing to the eye?
- Is their marketing slogan catchy?
Make a list of everything you notice about the competition’s product, services, and advertising strategies. Those are all things you need to consider when creating your brand identity.
Create a Website
The first thing customers want to do is visit a website and reach a portion of the 79% of Americans online. That is especially true if you have an in-person store.
Before visiting, people want to check you out online to see what you offer. If you don’t have a website, chances are the client or customer will lose interest.
Remember, an online presence provides a quick way for people to find you. It also creates credibility and allows people to contact you with ease.
Make an App
Speaking of easy experiences, creating an app will make a customer’s experience even more rewarding. An app will interest the customer because they will want to know what features you have.
Once they download it, you boast exclusive items or discount codes. Once you please one customer, they might spread the word about your business and your app.
Be sure not to make a generic phone app, either. Just like your brand, you need the application to stand out, too.
If that sort of thing isn’t in your wheelhouse, that’s okay! You can hire services that will handle the graphic designs and digital media for you.
Design Eye-Catching Material
Customers judge items and services by their covers. If you have labeling that is eye-catching with colors, pictures, and fun slogans, people might visit your website or store. For many successful brands, it is all about the packaging.
