Creating a Recognizable and Memorable Brand for Your Business
We know that starting a business is no easy task, but creating a signature brand label that is memorable is a whole other challenge. Read on for five tips that are important to reflect on before launching your first business, or rebranding an existing business.
Analyze Your Business – Before creating a signature brand label, it is vital to know the ins and outs of your business. Start by analyzing your business and listing out what your business does, why it's needed, and why you are the right person to do it. Once you have done this, make a list of goals that you want your business to achieve in the future.
Understand Who Your Audience Is – It’s important to have a clear vision of who your target audience is. The better you understand your target audience, the easier it will be to convert them into loyal customers. To discover your brand's target audience, think about who will be interested in your products or services and why your products or services will make their lives easier or better. Then research what all of these people have in common and make a detailed list of their demographics, likes, and dislikes. Using your target audience as the driving factor in creating your signature brand label is important to have a strong understanding of who they are, especially if you are a business that has personal interactions with your customers.
Define Your Competition – Competitors will teach you a lot. Determine who your competitors are, what they are selling, how they are doing it, and who is the target audience. Start by conducting research on Google and social media channels to identify competitors. Understanding your competition will help you determine how to create a signature brand label that stands out!
Create Your Brand Identity – Now that you have a clear vision of the target audience and understand the competition, it is time to create your brand identity. A successful brand is so much more than a logo on a product or service, it is who you are as an organization.
Test Out Your Brand Label – You have created the perfect idea for your signature brand label, but do other people understand it and, more importantly, does your target audience understand it? It’s important to test out your brand label idea with friends and family who are similar to your target audience and collect their feedback. Accept all of their feedback—the good, the bad, and the ugly and learn from it. Check out our post: "Four Data-Backed Ideas That’ll Take Your Packaging to the Next Level" for more ideas.
