Your brand reflects your identity as a company. What are you doing
to make yours stand out?
It’s often said that you need to get your ad in front of customers seven times for them to pay attention to it. But as marketing practices continue to evolve in the digital age, this old rule may no longer be relevant. It does, however, underscore how difficult getting noticed can be at times.
Your brand reflects your identity as a company. That’s why you want it to convey a sense of who you are and what you do. And, most of all, you want it to be seen by the right people.
Here are several elements you can use to get your branding noticed.
Your logo is the main visual representation of your company’s branding. The first thing to check is whether your business name resonates with your target audience or not. If not, you’ll end up having to re-brand later, so be 100 percent sure the first time.
A surface-level study of color psychology is also worthwhile. For example, if we go through the rainbow of colors, McDonald’s claims yellow for its recognizable “M.” Fanta is known for its orange soda cans, and Coca-Cola for red. Yahoo!’s logo uses only purple in its design to signify creativity and imagination. You can probably recall and then distinguish Facebook’s particular blue from Twitter’s shade without looking either of them up. Font choice and shape of your logo is also another major consideration. The shape of your logo can also play a part in the impressions your customers receive.
Finally, there’s design. Flat design is still the trend right now, so don’t go in the “realistic direction” unless you have a good reason to do so.
Stationery, brochures, flyers, mugs, USB chargers . . . these and other marketing items all play a part in getting your brand noticed, especially since your prospects and customers will be interacting with them directly.
The same principles that apply to your logo also apply to your marketing collateral. Brands like active wear producer Lululemon give out a free branded bag during promotional seasons or an exclusive purchase. Another major consideration is imagery. If you understand your target audience well, picking the right images should be a straightforward process.
