Brand Management: 3 Steps to Success

It is important for any company to do their best to maintain a strong brand identity, both internally and externally. To do so, here are three steps you can take-define your brand, renovate your communications and develop an effective marketing strategy.

  1. Define your brand

What are the most important attributes of your company?

How do you want to portray yourself to the public? These are all questions that need to be answered before beginning to explain how to strengthen a brand.

A strong internal culture with the same values as the firm demonstrates an immediate understanding of what is important for employees and customers. Refresh your communications by defining your brand identity, both internally and externally.

Your target audience is made up of different groups, so define who they are and make sure everyone is on board with representing those ideals professionally, no matter where they go or who is seeing them. Also read my previous article on Why Branding Is So Important For Your Company

Anytime someone sees an employee/manager/partner/customer wearing clothes or accessories with their logo on it, it sends the implicit message that they are representing the company’s brand.

  1. Renovate your communications

When renovating your communications, think about how you want to portray yourself to different target audiences. One way is by using visual cues in marketing materials, such as logos and layout design.

Make sure all official communication pieces include your logo prominently. It should appear above the address line of an envelope or email signature block to remind everyone who sees it where its origin comes from.

For example, emails sent between employees within a firm could reinforce the feeling of being part of a larger whole if each one has a similar design template that includes the company logo on top of every page rather than simply signing off with name only at the end after the salutation.

Promote brand awareness through all possible media, whether it is print, television, radio or the Internet. Use a variety of formats and make sure that people always know where to find you and how they can follow your company via their preferred method of communication.

  1. Develop an effective marketing strategy

Once you have defined your brand and renovated your communications with visual cues, develop a business plan for marketing purposes. This will ensure that all future initiatives reinforce what you want the public to think about when they hear your name or see your logo.

If you want to be considered as friendly and reliable than market yourself as such since those are the characteristics most associated with the groups most likely to purchase from you. Build on strengths by targeting the most appropriate markets.

There is an old proverb: “If I had two eyes I would be pleased if the blind could see, but alas I am only myself and not my brother“. This proverb conveys the message that it is difficult to walk in other shoes, but we should try anyway. The proverb represents how important it is to see things from other people’s perspective.

Being able to put yourself into another person’s shoes can help you successfully brand your company because by doing so, you are demonstrating empathy which makes your product more relatable.
