"Time to Go Back to Basics - Branding Basics"

Inbound Marketing

All too often, companies struggle with branding. They might have thought building their brand was a good idea, but found it always ended up on the back burner. They might have a difficulty narrowing down ideas because they don't want to leave anybody (or anything) out. They might not know how to get started or how to make sure they're doing it right.

Asking Basic Brand Questions

Time to Go Back to Basics - Branding BasicsIn order to design an effective brand identity, one that speaks to the core of your business and connects with your customers on multiple levels, you have to begin with an open and honest foundation about who you are as a company.

To do this, there are a few simple questions that need to be answered:

  • Who are you?
  • Who needs to know?
  • How will they find out?
  • Why should they care?

See, the questions are simple. They're just a few words each, and they center around something you know a whole lot about: your business. Even though the questions are simple and the subject matter is all too familiar, businesses still struggle to start connecting the dots. But that's okay because we can help get you past that starting point, feeling energized and inspired at our marketing seminar: One Squared.
