Establishing a Brand that Works for Your Business

One of the most important things you can do when starting a business is to establish your brand. This is how your customers will learn to identify and recognize your business quickly above your competitors. A good logo is only the start of this, branding goes so far as to include the look of your website, emails, business cards, promotional products, signage, and even your company apparel. If you can establish a solid brand from the start, you'll not only create a very professional look, but it'll make it easier for customers to recognize your business. Here are a few things you can do to help make your branding sync, and establish a brand that works for you.


Stay Focused

A new business will always have limited resources, so it's important to use the funds you have to brand very specifically. Draw your attention to the single focus of your company, and brand that. Don't get distracted on rabbit trails within the business, and the small details that make it up. You want to clearly show your customers what you do, and after hooking their attention, then you can explain the rest. If you own a landscape company, but you also offer basic home repairs and lawn maintenance, keep the original focus on the landscaping. After you've had a chance to introduce yourself and your company, then you can go into the subcategories.

Keep It Simple

From the name of your company to the logo you choose, remember to keep it all simple. This will be the way people find you, and your name and logo will grace all of the promotional products and marketing materials that you use. Make your business name easy to spell and pronounce, and keep your logo visibly appealing, while not being complicated, confusing or distracting.

Use Your Brand Consistently

After you've established a brand, be sure to use it consistently. This is one area where many companies start to stray from their original plans. Just because another slogan develops, or a different image of your company starts to form as you go on, be sure to only stick to the original branding. It can be confusing for your consumers if your branding starts to change over time. Keep continuity in your business cards, promotional products, vinyl banners and other print materials. This will establish your brand, but also make it easier for someone to recognize your brand when they see it!
