Common Branding Mistakes

April 15, 2016

Branding mistakes are incredibly common in today’s business world, especially for busy professionals. Most don’t have time to continually monitor, refine and strategize ever-evolving branding techniques. When you delegate your branding activities to an experienced agency, you can avoid these branding blunders:

Being Generic

Businesses must find or create their own niche for success in today’s crowded markets. These days every client, customer or patient has access to a huge number of businesses and service providers in your industry, be it healthcare, construction, hospitality or another sector. So, it’s essential that you be different and stand out. It’s our mission to help each of our clients find and communicate what makes them unique. This is the core reason why potential customers will choose you over the next guy. A committed marketing agency will partner with you to help you showcase your unique selling proposition. When you isolate what makes you unique, sing it loud in all your branding, so that your audience knows why the should choose you.

Being Everything to Everybody

You likely realize the urgent need to find your niche and own it, for business success. If you try to offer all services to every audience, you can spread yourself (and your business and brand) too thin. Don’t proceed without a clear branding message that defines you. Don’t lose track of your distinctive identity and business offerings. A good branding partner can focus on creating, defining and differentiating your brand, continually bringing you new customers that are looking for your unique service or product.

Doing it All on Your Own

Your brand image must, above everything else, be authentic and true to your business mission—but it can be difficult to create and maintain when you cannot give it your full attention. By attempting to carefully manage your brand, while running other aspects of your daily business, you can easily veer off message. You must constantly reach out to your ideal audience: those clients and customers in your sector just waiting for a hotelier, physician, architect, homebuilder or grocer just like you. Consider hiring an experienced, committed consulting firm who will work with you to craft, refine and maintain your brand and message.
