By definition, “branding” is the marketing practice of creating a name, symbol or design that identifies and differentiates a product or service from its competition. However, branding is so much more.

Think of a brand in terms of tangible and intangible elements.

Tangible elements include your logo, taglines, images, color, typography, and the features that explain your product or service.

Intangible elements include your reputation and personality, the customer’s experience, and the service expectations that are set.

Therefore, a brand is the sum of perceptions regarding a company, a product or service, or an individual in the minds of consumers. And effective branding includes everything that influences the opinions of consumers about your product or service. The ability to be authentic and humanize your brand will provide that critical connection to your customers—one that engenders loyalty and increases sales. Whether you are a company or an individual, your brand is your most important asset. It tells the world:

  • Who you are
  • The culture of the company
  • Your Promise
  • The value proposition of the product or service to the target market

The challenge for any business is name recognition and positioning in an ever-changing market. While most businesses believe that brands matter, they have little confidence in the idea that their brand stands out from the competition. That’s where YGL Enterprises, Inc. can help. We place a focus on the core elements of:

  • Brand strategy development
  • Storyline
  • Identity
  • Value proposition
  • Brand promise
  • Marketing methods

Rebranding

Whether you are investing time in your existing brand or are looking to rebrand, the same elements apply: It’s about the story you tell, the value you deliver, and how you market yourself. There are several reasons a business may choose to rebrand, including an outdated image, a partner change (common to professional services), a bad reputation, company growth, or a merger.

No matter the reason, the rebranding process takes time and careful consideration. Access our handy checklist for essential tips leading up to a rebranding launch.
