How important is your Brand? Just ask anybody in charge of any successful company. It’s absolutely essential. I’m going to touch on some important points for branding your online company.
The Logo Is Still Essential:
This is one thing that hasn’t changed from the “real” world. What are logos? Logos are images that stick in the mind of the viewer and come to represent the brand in question. At least, in an ideal situation, this is what a good logo does. This should be the first element and most important element to be considered in any circumstance. This is the vanguard of all your other marketing strategies. And logos for this reason need to be simple!
Target, target, target:
This may seem like the obvious to you, but it’s surprising how many startups really don’t have this aspect clearly thought out. Your product or idea may be a perfectly valid one, but you may not be being completely honest with yourself about what the product’s target demographic is. People tend to think that everybody wants to do business with them but the truth is very very few products in this world are like that in reality.
Design And Your Brand:
They’re not the same thing, although many confuse the two. Your web design communicates your branding to your audience and should gain their trust. Your branding aims to make people say that they trust your product or service and the branding elements – logos, colors, taglines, and even product packaging design – are all routes to this goal. Your design elements will affect your branding and your marketing success, so make sure your visitors trust you.
The really truly successful ventures have always been based on original material, concepts, etc. The fact is, somebody starts off with a great idea, capitalizes on it, and then 1000 imitators flood the market with copycat products. But the copycats never make any real money, and frankly are almost always wasting their time. This is another area where we as human beings tend to suffer from perception bias; we tend to think that our ideas are truly original. You may want to meditate on this one.
Hopefully these four little bits of advice can help you with your next venture so that you can take your business to the next level.
