Building brands is a great portion of what we do. Your brand is your company’s face to the world. It is the company’s name, how that name is visually expressed through a logo, and how that name and logo reverberate the hearts and minds of each person who encounters it. But how do you get to that last point? Here are 5 tips.
Know who you are and what you do.
It’s great that you want your own business, but what will be your service? How do you intend to deliver your service? How does this compare with your personal values and beliefs?
Have an idea of who you want to impact.
An audience is much more than saying the name of a neighborhood, state, or country. You should narrow in on the characteristics and make-up of these individuals. You don’t want to sell lawnmowers to infants, right?
Think of the way you want your brand to look.
This applies to the logo, business card, website, photos and even social media. What do you see when you imagine your business? What’s needed to bring it to life?
Know what your industry is missing.
Yes, the world needs another burger shop, right? What if it was a make your own burger bar with 50 different options for toppings and they had spoken word on Wednesdays and played live music on Fridays? How will your business impact your industry in a way that has not been accomplished?
Identify your why.
How wonderful is it that you are starting a new venture and reaching new heights? Why are you starting this business? What pushes you to excel? When you find your why, everything else comes easy.
