So if you’re thinking about starting a small business, if you already have one, or if you’re just searching for some general information on the topic, you’re sure to find everything you’re looking for right here.

Understanding Branding

To best understand what branding is, you need to first realize that your brand is ultimately a promise, made by you, to your customers. It will give them an idea of what kind of experience they can expect from you, your products, and your services. Your brand will also distinguish you from competitors. It’s derived from who you are, who you aspire to become, and how people, namely your customers, will perceive you.

Are you the hotshot risk-taker in your industry, or are you the tried and true experienced one? Maybe you’re always setting the trends that your competitors follow, or maybe you’re known as the reliable one? Is the product that you offer the affordable low-cost option of the high-quality, high-cost option? To anybody who sets out thinking that they can be both, the cold hard truth is that you can’t. I don’t like to say things are impossible, but this is one of those times. Businesses that try to be all things to all people will inevitably fail in the long run. I challenge you to think of a company that has done it, done it well, and continues to still do it. Who you are or who you aspire to become should be based on what kind of customers you want to target, this will also give you insight into what kind of approach is needed to pull off your branding successfully.
