Building a brand for your company is something that nearly every startup talks about. It seems to be the new, “cool” trend nowadays, as it has been written about and discussed time and time again. While up-and-coming entrepreneurs all seem to unanimously agree that effective branding is a necessity, larger companies have been branding themselves for years, without consumers even noticing the strategy behind their message. Coca Cola, Disney, McDonald’s, Nike, all are known for their marketing campaigns and the image that they display to audiences.
A brand is who you are, plain and simple. If you view a brand only as a mask that you hide your real business behind, it will never catch on. The man behind the curtain will eventually come to light, and then you will be back at square one. Rebranding is something that is difficult, time-consuming, and often expensive. Therefore, it would be beneficial for you to get it right the first time.
So, how do you get it right? Your brand is a result of your actions, not just what you say. If you want to convey reliability and integrity to your audience, then you must be punctual and honest with your clients. Branding successfully requires you and your team to be genuine, and to practice what you preach. The most important rule to remember when working on the brand of your company is to truly follow what it is that you say that you do.
Consumers are drawn towards authenticity. Saying one thing and doing another is a sure-fire way to lose credibility and revenue. Staying true to your brand is the most important part of branding your company in the first place.
Otherwise, you will only be wasting your time.
