Branding: What is it, and why is it important to your business?
Do you know your brand? Do you even have one? In the business world, branding refers to the marketing practice whereby a company creates a symbol or design that represents the company and is easy to recognize. The Nike “Swoosh” and McDonald’s “Golden Arches” are a couple of examples.The reason companies do this is to make their products or services easily identifiable and leave a lasting impression on the public.
Why is Creating Your Brand Important?
To say that branding is important is an understatement; branding is absolutely critical if you want your business to succeed. It can change how your business is viewed, bring in new customers, and increase awareness about your business. As Mark Cuban said: “Focus on building the best possible business. If you are great, people will notice and opportunities will appear.”
Branding Creates Recognition
Think about it. When you see the “Swoosh” on a box of Nikes, you know exactly which company made them, what that company is known for, and, most importantly, that people are willing to buy that company’s products. All of this information is relayed to you without having to put any actual information on the side of the box.
Branding Can Also Increase Your Business’ Value
In order to remain successful, you need to ensure that you’re able to generate future business. Branding can help you do that by giving a business more leverage in the industry. The more widely-known and accepted a brand is, the better the position you’ll be in.
