A smart branding strategy will help you, your company or your organization Be Visible and Get Noticed by raising your visibility among potential clients, mentors and partners. Visibility leads to awareness and awareness is critical to being top of mind among key audiences.
Strong brands are clear, concise and confident and they communicate clearly, concisely and confidently — online and off. They convey a clear Promise and Benefit and they grow stronger with reinforcement. Visual identity standards ensure that your brand is used and promoted in a consistent way which reinforces its identity and builds visibility and recognition.
A strong brand will get attention and create interest in your offering. Interest creates desire, which leads to action. Action can be as simple as clicking through to your website for more information, sending an email or picking up the phone, or it could be making a purchase or becoming a new client.
Take action to make your brand stronger, by creating a brand strategy that begins with understanding. It is important to understand WHO your target audience is, WHAT is important to them and HOW what you have to offer fulfills THEIR wants and needs (not yours). Develop a brand that creates an expectation for success and satisfaction … and then ensure that the reality matches the promise by providing exceptional service, always. … Lori Martinek, Branding Expert and Author, Owner of ED/c Partners http://www.edcgrow.com
