The Ultimate 2019 Branding Guide for Small Businesses

How seriously do you take your brand identity?

Is branding sitting on the sideline because you think of your small business as a ‘business’ and not as a ‘brand’?

Overlooking branding is one of the biggest mistakes small business owners make.

Branding is a tool that reflects how you define your brand and how you want your audience to perceive your business and its services. It helps you promote your business value, give your employees a sense of direction, and acquire new loyal customers.

Branding your business isn’t expensive and it’s something you can start doing yourself right now. Here are a few ways you can devise a kick-ass branding strategy for your small business.

1. Define Your Business

Think of your brand as a person.

Where does your business stand in the market?

List down the products and services it offers and determine how they’d meet the needs and expectations of the audience. Promote your business through the brand in a way that doesn’t only differentiate you but also helps you build a meaningful connection with the audience. 

2. Deliver Unique Messages Consistently

Based on your business’ vision and mission, come up with honest, engaging messages and convey them in a consistent tone.

The key messages should be different yet aligned together to help customers understand your business’s character and its offerings.

3. Focus on Your Visual Identity

You need to create the right first impression using your visual identity. Come up with a catchy name for your business and an interesting description to set your business apart from competitors. 

Moreover, design your logo carefully and choose the ideal color theme to make sure it reflects your brand identity.
