KNOW ABOUT THE BRAND AND ITS IMPORTANCE IN THE CONSTRUCTION

 

BY NOW YOU MAY HAVE HEARD THAT IT IS IMPORTANT TO HAVE A "BRAND." THERE ARE HUNDREDS OF WEBINARS THAT TRY TO EXPLAIN THIS CONCEPT, ESPECIALLY TO ENTREPRENEURS.

 And yes, we know that it is confusing and that there are even various meanings in books and websites about it. That is why we decided to create this article to clarify your doubts and, above all, explain the importance of the brand in your business. 

 Let's start with the brand definition first. Decades ago, it was defined as a name, slogan, sign, symbol or design or a combination of these elements that identify a company's products or services.


 The term 'brand', believe it or not, has its roots in the 'old west'. At that time it was common to 'mark' (with hot iron) the skin of animals, especially cattle, to designate property.

 However, the concept has evolved a lot since then. Currently the brand is a little more complex, but it is still very important in the world of marketing, since it is the perception that a consumer has when he hears or thinks about your company's name, service or product.

 But then what is brand? It is something that transforms your company or service as unique. While this includes your business name, it also encompasses the public's perception of your business.

 Have you ever wondered if your brand brings certain sensations and reactions to the minds of your customers? If your services or products are of quality and delivered with excellence? The answers are basically the brand concept.

 WHAT IS THE PURPOSE OF YOUR BRAND?

 Be composed of the personality and image of your company, as well as its main competencies and characteristics. The impressions you make, as well as the words that people will use to describe your company to others, are the basic framework of your brand.

 Credibility as a strong brand will help you expand your influence in your market. Also, this will motivate customers to keep buying from you.

 WHAT DETERMINES THE SUCCESS OF A BRAND?

 Developing a good brand is not only about getting your target market to select you over the competition, but also about getting your potential customers to see you as the only provider of a solution to their problem or need.

 To be successful in branding, understanding the needs and wants of your customers and prospects is critical. Integration of your brand strategies must be achieved through your company at all public contact points.

 If you can get consumers to identify with you, your brand will leave a stamp inside their minds and hearts.

 A strong brand is invaluable as the battle for customers intensifies day by day. You are not the only one who tries to position your brand in the market, so it is essential to know how to differentiate yourself from the rest and for this it is important to invest time in research, definition and development of your brand.

THE BRAND IS ALSO IMPORTANT 'HOME IN'

 A good brand is not only important for customers but also for the objectives that every company has, even indoors. It serves as a guide to understanding the purpose of business objectives. It allows you to align a marketing plan with those goals and meet the overall strategy.

 The brand also creates loyal employees by giving them something to believe in, something to stand behind. It helps them understand the purpose of the organization or business.

 HAVE YOU ALREADY EVALUATED YOUR BRAND?

 As we have seen, the concept of a brand is something complex and difficult to establish in a company, therefore you must evaluate if your brand is strong enough or not to give it internal and external value.

 You need to ask yourself these simple questions: Does my brand relate to my target audience? Do they get my message instantly without thinking too much? Does my branding reflect the promise I made to my target audience?

 The answers to these questions will serve as a guide to developing your brand. Usually if the answers are not clear there is a problem and you need to rethink the basic points.

 CREATING VALUE DIFFERENTIATES YOU

 Establishing a strong brand is not only achieved by selling. You have to establish parameters of customer satisfaction. You must deliver the product that the consumer expects, exceed their expectations. This will differentiate you from other competitors. 

 To achieve this you need to know your consumers very well. The more you know your target audience, the more you can differentiate yourself.

 Excellent market research is essential to apply differentiation strategies.

 DEFINE YOUR BRAND GOALS

 What do you want your brand to do for your company? And what do you want others to know and say about your products or services? The answers will be the objectives of your brand.

 After defined, you must develop an action plan with a specific timeline for each objective. Then you must build and develop your brand strategy.

 DISCOVER THE BARRIERS

 Once you create your brand strategy, it is important that you carry out a careful analysis to determine the main barriers with which you can be in contact. These barriers are also known as market conditions that prevent your product or service from achieving success.

 PROFESSIONALIZATION OF YOUR BRAND

 There are times when business owners think or assume they are ready to apply a branding strategy without seeking help and only applying what they “Google” on the internet. It does not work like this.

 You must recognize your limitations. If marketing and branding are areas little known to you, then you should seek help from experts to professionalize your brand. Remember that a poorly designed and poorly planned strategy can generate many headaches that are difficult to solve.

 Allocating money for the development of your brand is not an expense, it is an investment whose results will be seen in the long term and will be permanent.

 THE IMPORTANCE

We live in a world with a huge commercial offer of similar products or services and this has forced people's standards to rise as well and demand more. They do not look for companies that are simple replicators of products.

 Without an established brand strategy you will enter the game of "anything goes" and this is a very dangerous position for your company, especially if it is a small business. Hence the importance of having a reliable and consolidated brand. 

 If you have any doubts, don't stop contacting us, we are ready to help you!
