Branding: have your company be quickly identified
by your logo, colour palette, slogan and values
BrandingBranding, in the context of merchandising, production and retail, is used to create a strong brand image by creating a distinctive and recognisable identity for either a product or company. To create a strong and distinctive image, a strategic plan must be put in place in order to promote and design a name, logo, colour palette, and other visual elements that will differentiate the brand from its competitors.
When it comes to creating and maintaining a brand image, not only are the visual elements important, but so are the values and messaging that your company portrays. It is important to create a valuable image in order to differentiate against competition, and to reach, engage, close, and retain customers.

What are the Advantages of Successful Branding?
Differentiation - branding is a strategic tool to help you stand out in a saturated business market. By creating a unique identitiy and brand, a business can be easily identified, stand out and differentiate itself from the competition.
Brand Recognition and Recall - A strong image and brand helps a company or product be easily recognised and remembered. Once a consumer has a positive expereience with that product or company, it increases the chances that they will remember the brand and choose to work with them again.
Customer Loyalty - By having your brand associated with positive traits such as quality, reliability, good communication and customer satisfaction, customer loyoalty and trust is built. These loyal customers often will spread positive word of mouth, allowing your brand to reach new potential customers.
Competitive Advantage - A strong brand image in a large market helps to build credibility, while at the same time making it hard for competition to try and imitate the product or service you are offering. This competitive advantage can result in a larger share of the market and greater customer preference.
