Branding is one the most fundamental basics of starting any business. It is something that all businesses should recognize as a very import aspect of their own business. But, what is branding? And how does one go about creating a brand that represents goals and ideas of a business effectively?

What a Brand is and How it can Help Business

A brand is the idea or image of a specific product or service that consumers connect with. Branding can incorporate all areas of a business name, logo, slogan, or the symbol of the company. The sole purpose of creating a brand is to get consumers familiar with what your company does.

Specifically, branding is when an idea or image is marketed so that it is recognizable by more and more people. Brands help potential buyers identify with your specific service or product when there are many other companies offering the same thing. Designers work on branding not only to build brand recognition but also to build good reputations and a set of standards to which the company should strive to maintain or surpass. Branding is an important part of internet commerce, as branding allows companies to build their reputations. Additionally, they help to expand beyond the original product and service and add to the revenue generated by the original brand.

Building a Brand = Building a Solid Business Reputation

Furthermore, branding is also a way to build an important company asset: a good reputation. Whether a company currently has a less than stellar reputation or no reputation at all, branding can help. First, branding can build an expectation about the company services or products. No matter a product’s value, a good reputation does not come about products who do not utilize branding efforts. Second, this customer expectation for branded products can encourage the company to maintain expectations, or even exceed them. Overall, this translates to better products and services throughout the marketplace. And, happier customers who keep coming back for more.

Investing in Your Own Company Branding

To conclude, the purpose of creating a brand is to expand knowledge of a company, gain a reputable reputation, and increase the initial worth and value of your business services or products. Considering if your business services or products require an investment with branding efforts? If you answer “yes” to any of the following questions about current branding efforts, your company may benefit from a new marketing branding campaign!

  • Does your brand relate to your target audience?
  • Will they instantly “get it” without too much thought?
  • Does your brand share the uniqueness of what you offer and why it’s important?

Upon graduation, with little money and a ton of risk, Danny took his project and put his degree into action by starting his own website design business. With little direction, he began to learn the ins and outs of running a website development and marketing agency through trial and error. To start, Dsquared Media resided in a tiny 210 square foot office space located in Delray Beach, Florida that was barely room enough for employees to work. As time progressed, so did Danny’s knowledge on maintaining and running a successful business based on progressive marketing strategies. Currently, Dsquared Media employs 12 media professionals and is located in a space over 7 times larger than the tiny office in Delray. Danny attributes his success to a keen eye for intelligent design and an inspiration to live according to his passions.
