Good vs. bad branding

 

Have you ever judged another business’ branding? Subconsciously, we are always judging, assessing and processing the messages we receive, whether they are visual, verbal or subliminal. It’s how we differentiate one brand from another, and figure out whether or not what they’re offering is right for us.

But when it comes to your own brand, how do you know if what you’re currently doing to portray your brand is good or bad?

Watch this episode as I compare the traits that might affect how your brand is perceived (whether good or bad!).

Three ways to find confidence in business.

 

Lean in close. Your business will never be successful without this one thing: confidence.

Why? Well, let’s go for a little meander in your perfect customer’s shoes. Let’s just say he or she is comparing your brand with another, considering which purchase is going to be most beneficial, with the lowest risk possible. It’s pretty simple really.

Without confidence:

  • How can your potential customers trust you?
  • How can they possibly feel confident in what you’re offering if you’re not exuding confidence yourself?
  • Your brand is weak and hesitant.

With confidence:

  • It’s obviously you believe in your product or service.
  • You can clearly communicate why your brand is trustworthy.
  • You help minimise feelings of risk, and your confidence overflows into your potential customers making purchasing a no-brainer.

But when you’re new to this business game, it’s hard to develop that confidence, right? I get it. I’m here to help you achieve...

Why marketing is fruitless without branding.

 

One of the most confusing things when you start your business is marketing.

  • Where do you start?
  • Where do you focus your efforts?
  • What types of content do you create?

Often this is such an overwhelming task, that branding falls by the wayside, discarded until you can wrap your head around it. So you tick the logo box, and off you go.

Sound familiar?

In actual fact, marketing your business is fruitless without meaningful brand strategy.

Watch this episode to find out why, and how branding and marketing work together harmoniously to attract those perfectly aligned customers that you’re craving.

Are you ready to (finally) pin down your brand strategy and unravel the confusing mess that your marketing has become, so that your brand sparkles with consistency?

If you're not looking for it, you'll miss it.

 

The branding process is incredibly clarifying. You establish pillars that not only define the boundaries for the culture of your brand, but light the way for the future. Your dream evolves into a clear vision, which helps you to walk a straight and narrow path towards achieving it.

However, this does not mean that you can’t be open to receive guidance or opportunities that might help you achieve that vision in a slightly different way. If you’re not aware what to look for, or how to step outside yourself, you might be stagnating your own growth.

Watch now to learn why, and how you can step confidently towards your vision in a way that leaves you open to new opportunities.

If you haven’t got a clearly defined brand strategy that is guiding your every move in business, head on over to www.brandalchemy.net and get yourself on the waitlist to my signature brand foundation course, Brand Alchemy. Become the master of your own brand!

How many colours do you need in your brand colour palette?

 

Choosing brand colours is one of the biggest barriers for new brands. Aligning yourself with just a handful of colours, and the pressure of making the ‘right’ decision is overwhelming! I totally get it. And it’s important! Colour has a profound effect on emotions and feelings, but can also be a useful tool to enhance recognition and memory. Get it wrong, and you could be sending your perfect customers running for the hills rather than attracting them like bees to honey.

My top three tips for choosing a colour palette

  1. Make sure you have a solid understanding of your ideal client’s feelings, barriers and motivations before creating your brand colour palette.
  2. Consider how you would like your audience to feel when they see your colour palette.
  3. DO NOT choose your brand colours based on personal preference. What appeals to you and your personality, may not be what woos your ideal client.

But then… HOW MANY colours are right for your brand? Is there a...
