What is branding?
Branding is a process of creating a unique identity for a business targeting the target audience and consumers. At the basic level, branding is made of the company’s:
- Visual design
- Tone of voice
Brand identity is determined by the quality of products, customer service, and the price of the products or services. Building a website describes:
- What you have offered
- Designing ads that promote goods and services
- Picking specific corporate colors associated with the company to:
- Create logo
- Feature it on social media
These are all about branding the company. If you shape how and what people have perceptions of the business. Even if you never invest in a strategic brand strategy, you still have a brand.
