Your brand is a promise you make to the world. The more consistently you deliver on that promise, the stronger your brand becomes. It’s the only thing that really makes you stand out from the competition. You’ll foster trust and loyalty if you continuously meet expectations.
Focus on Your Target
Brands don’t have to be all things to all people. A powerful brand can repel as many people as it attracts — just make sure it’s attracting the right people. Identify your target audience and build a brand that appeals to them. Branding is about elitism — your audience has to believe that you’re the best option for them.
Make an Emotional Connection
Branding is about passion. Cold hard facts don’t matter. Knowing, liking, and trusting helps but you need to create an emotional connection with your audience. If you can do that, they’ll keep coming back for more.
Brands Never Sleep
Branding will occur by default if you don’t push it in a deliberate direction. You need to make sure it’s the direction you want. If you can create a perception of differentiation in a crowded marketplace then your brand will become a competitive advantage. Know what else never sleeps ? Your website !
