Branding: Increasing its Power


One thing that you are going to want to work out fairly quickly in the early days of your business is branding. The way in which you brand your business is hugely important if you want to make sure that you are attracting enough attention and the right type of attraction. You might need to think about what you can do in order to increase the power and potency of your brand so that it can do as much for your business as possible. Branding is not my strongest skill, to say the least so thank goodness for my Graphic Designer friend who is keeping me right! I’m in desperate need of a rebrand so hopefully, this information will be as useful to you as it is to me.

Make It Bolder

If you are hoping to make a brand more powerful and potent, the first thing to do is to make sure that it is as bold as possible. The bolder a brand is, the more likely it is going to be effective, so you need to always be prepared to go back to the drawing board and make it bolder if necessary. If you are to do this, you will need to think about what it is that actually makes a brand bold, and that is something that you might struggle with for a long time. Bright colours, clear displays, an obvious and loud message – all of this will help, but the boldness of a brand really comes from the force with which you sell it to people. Do that, and you will find that the brand has a much stronger impact in its boldness in no time. Remember though, going big is fabulous but keep it classy and consistent.

Boost Visibility With Branding

You’ll also need to make sure that your brand is absolutely everywhere, or as far as you can get it. After all, it’s not worth much if nobody can see it, so the more visible you make it, the better. There are many ways to improve and increase visibility in this way. You might want to think about the age-old method of merchandising, wherein the simple use of pens, pencils and branded reusable coffee cups can be enough for your brand to reach far and wide. Merchandise is a great means of boosting visibility, but so is merely talking about it with people, so make sure that you do that at every opportunity you can too.

I find that branding online, and again consistency of branding across social media accounts, the website, email signatures and so on all help your business build recognition and reputation. 

Reinvent Where Necessary

There will be times when you find that you need to reinvent your brand, and you need to know how to identify that need, and then you need to know how you are actually going to make it a reality. Reinventing your brand where necessary will ensure that you can always keep it fresh, and yet you will need to make sure that you are keeping it in line with your previous branding enough for it to be recognisable. Keep that balance in mind, and you should be able to master such reinventions, with a view to increasing the power of your brands much more easily.
