What makes your business stand out in a crowd?
Let me ask you something, when I sing “I’m lovin’ it,” what do you think of? How about when you see a big white slanted check? Does McDonald’s and Nike come to mind? These connections are a crucial part of branding. When you are creating a brand identity, the goal is to get people to see something and associate it with your business. Check out these fundamental tips when creating your own brand:
Your logo has a very important role as being a small representation of you. People have to see it and be able to associate it with you right away. Design it specifically to show who you are. Once you’ve done this, put it on everything. I mean, EVERYTHING.
Create a slogan that is catchy and describes what you do as a business at the same time. It is important to remember that your tagline needs to be memorable and concise. The more creative, the better.
3. Key Messages
Have you decided what you want to accomplish as a business? Great! Write it down. These messages are the reasons you should provide the services people are looking for. These components should be applied to your work every day.
4. Consistent Marketing Materials
All of your marketing materials should have the same voice and design to them. For instance, use the same color schemes, logo, fonts, and tone in all of your printed materials. Consistency is key to building a brand.
5. Be True to Yourself
Trends come and go, but your brand is forever. There may be changes in popularity going on around you, but you can’t always give in and change your message. The more you stick to what makes you who you are, people will always remember you.
