What is Branding?

Whether your company is in its earlier stages or a seasoned entity, branding may be coming up as a topic in team meetings. Some may be asking “Should we consider a rebrand?” Or “How can we brand our start up for a reasonable price?” Whatever the shape or size, your company must be reconsidering its branding on a regular basis. To begin on the path to developing the proper brand for your company, consider the core values and competitive advantages of your business or organization. Assign qualities and characteristics as if it were a living organism. Next, spend time with your core executives to understand how your current client base sees the company, and what their response to this question would be. If you find that there is a significant gap, consider taking on a marketing agency to help you asses this topic in greater depth.
