Tips to Build Your Brand

These days you hear a lot about branding, building a brand, growing your brand and branding yourself. But what is all this talk about a brand? Heck, even professional athletes attempt to enhance their brand to give them more leverage for contract negotiations. When we talk about branding in this sense, what we are really talking about is reputation and perceived value. If you have a strong brand, more than likely you have a good reputation and would consider your product/service valued. So when Kim Kardashian takes a selfie it may take her 25 tries to get her lips to have the perfect duck face look, because she is trying to maintain her brand and all that it represents (sense the sarcasm.) So if you are looking to build a brand for your business or maybe you are a blogger wanting to build your personal brand, here is a list of tips that will help.

1. Define the values your brand represents

2. Identify what differentiates you from your competitors

3. Use your logo consistently

4. Use consistent fonts, colors, imagery, etc. to make you easily recognizeable

5. Identify a consistent voice that you will use for messaging (witty, professional, conservative, edgy, etc.)

6. Understand what is important to your company

7. Know what you are good at

8. Know what you need to improve on

9. Be unique - when others zig you zag

10. Be authentic

13. Build partnerships with like-minded businesses

14. Give back to the community - goodwill goes a long way
