Finnies can provide advice on all aspects of starting a business – not only the finance and tax issues...
Whatever your line of business, the right brand is essential. Your brand should encapsulate everything you want your customers to think about your business. The right brand can help you to increase your market share and encourage long-term customer loyalty.
Think 'brand', and the initial tendency is often to picture a particular well-known logo or style of packaging. However, building a brand is really about forging a unique identity in the marketplace - not just a neat logo or slogan - and if you want to go beyond merely differentiating your product or service from others in the market, you need to think about the complete package.
When building your brand, your overall aim should be to create a positive, consistent message, which is instantly recognisable for your customers.
Brand recognition is only the start, however. You will want to communicate an association with a particular quality, such as value for money, a traditional approach or exceptional service, which will appeal to customers and encourage them to put your brand first. You might like to refer back to your business plan and/or mission statement.
