Three easy ways to instil trust in your brand

Let’s not beat about the bush. Investing in visual branding shows your audience that you have faith in your brand. But what can you do to instil trust in your brand if you’re not quite ready to overhaul your visual branding? Or you’ve got the basics sorted but want to step it up a knotch?

Here’s three easy ways to instil trust in your brand:

  1. Up-level your printing finishes

Don’t automatically default to the cheapest options. Invest in a fancy card stock, some shiny gold foil or embossing. This shows your audience that you care about your brand.

Ready to rebrand? Your questions answered

Ready to rebrand? Your questions answered.

Are you ready to rebrand? Not sure? Does the word ‘rebrand’ trigger a racing heart, sweaty palms, a dizzy sense of overwhelm and the desire to run for the hills?

Are you scared of selling?


Do you get the heeby jeebies when it’s time to start selling your products or services? Does imposter syndrome creep in, and that mean girl on your shoulder starts shouting that nobody is ever going to want what you’re selling? You’re not alone my friend.

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 and get yourself on the waitlist to my signature brand foundation course, Brand Alchemy. Become the master of your own brand!
