Building an established brand may seem like hard and expensive work, but if done right, it will always pay off. All successful companies have a brand that their audience recognizes, uses, and purchases from repeatedly. The brand is what brings customers back for more. Here’s a list of three ways that branding plays a critical role in creating successful companies.
1. Increase in Sales
Wherever you go, a name brand costs more than a store brand. No customer complains about the extra cost because there is a sense of reliability on the name brand, so he or she will spend a few more dollars on laundry detergent or toothpaste. By establishing your company’s mission and your dedication to making a customer happy with their purchase, not only can you increase your profit margin, but more people will flock to your brand.
2. Happier Employees
Employees often struggle when they do not feel a connection with a company or do not have real conviction for what they are doing. At an established, well-branded company, employees have a better understanding of why they are doing their work; they buy into your company’s mission. Employer branding is real, and can make a difference in building an established brand. Google employees, for example, are known for truly believing in their work and loving what they do. Google’s brand is the reason behind that.
3. Reinvention is Possible
Hopefully you are looking at this post as reassurance that you were right in investing your time and money into branding, rather than scavenging through the internet for how to fix your dying brand. But if you are the latter of those two, that is ok. Many brands see great success before they realize they are going out of style, in which case you may need to adapt. Buick is the best recent example for brand renewal. Buick was once seen as the cars for the elderly, but now with their “Is That A Buick?” commercial a younger audience is seeing the cool factor in GM.
An established brand builds your establishment. It is as simple as that. Branding is always the first step in building your company, whether you are just starting up or wanting to revamp your image.
