Building a powerful brand is critical for the success and growth of a business, but there’s more to building a brand than just a catchy logo design.

So how and where do you begin? Let’s start with these key questions to get you started:

1. What is your mission?
This is arguably the most important part of brand building. Your mission should represent your purpose and clarify the reason for doing what you do.

2. What are the benefits of your products/services?
It’s important to know your products inside and out. Determine how your products can attract and benefit your customers, then confidently communicate that to your audience.

3. Who is your audience?
Know your audience and speak their language. When you understand your target market, only then can you know how to address their needs.

4. What is your voice?
Once you’ve defined your audience, define the voice that will engage with them the best.  You can then use that tone to develop your marketing message and a memorable tagline that will give your audience an instant feel for the essence of your brand.

5. What qualities do we want people to associate with your company?
Do you want to be known for exceptional customer service, or perhaps a strong supporter of eco-friendly products?  Find the values you’re passionate about and sell them!

Branding is the unique story that encompasses your company’s personality and mission. Your brand is how your customers, competitors and partners see you so it’s important to start off on the right foot.
