Brand identity is the most crucial part of defining your business, product or services to the employees and the consumers. It conveys the core meaning or idea behind your brand. If a company has a strong brand identity, it becomes easy for the consumers to relate with your brand and identify it independently. Brand building is important for increased credibility, it is as powerful as an emotion and thus, helps in acquiring business and customers. Brands serve as a mark of promise for the consumers.
The four major benefits of brand building are as follows:
Influences Psychology of a Customer: When you build a brand, you prepare a logo/ design/ symbol or even jingle/ commercial, which carries an idea that you wish to convey and use it as an agent which can help you build a psychological connect with your consumers. You construct a platform for experiencing the product under the brand identity. The design that you create to build an identity and market the products/ services should be given a deep thought because they have a strong impact on the psyche of the consumer, thus attracting them towards the brand and encouraging them to invest in it.
Increase Awareness & Sales: To increase awareness about a product or service it is important to first build awareness about the brand. Brand building helps people take keen interest in what you have on offer for them. It is like a unique identity, which is must for survival in this huge marketing world. Any product that you launch is sold solely on the basis of the image of the brand it is attached to. If you have a brand name, which is trusted and appreciated in the market, it becomes easy to drive sales and grow popular with the launch of each new product or service. Surely, the standard of the product/ service has to go up with each new launch to maintain that popularity & place in the market.
Building Trust and Gaining Loyal Customers: People attach their trust to brands because of the true promises they make and fine quality experiences they deliver. Consumers invest their time and money in a brand only if they are impressed by its activation campaigns, marketing techniques which are truly experiential in nature and the quality of products or services being given by the company. Working under a brand name makes you responsible as a product developer and gives you challenges which make your work interesting because maintaining the trust of your customers is not easy. Consumers think twice before investing in any other product which does not belong to your brand. It can be said that brand building through Experiential Marketing helps in gaining loyal customers, which stick to your brand.
Employee & Job Satisfaction: So far, we have talked about the importance of brand building for the gaining loyal customers or increasing sales and profits but there is another benefit of building your brand; the employees, who work in your brand feel more comfortable about what they are making and selling in the market, they gain job satisfaction and enjoy the work that they are doing for a name which is respected and popular in the market.
