Your brand is what you stand for – define it, build it, market it
Your brand isn’t about how your logo looks – although your logo may well be part of the process.
It’s much more subjective than that. It’s about how you are perceived in the market, by your customers, potential customers, suppliers, stakeholders, employees, and competitors.
Your brand is about creating reasons why prospects buy from you. And, it's about identifying real differences between you and your competition. Brand is everything you stand for as an organisation; it’s the personality of your company. It needs to be effectively communicated in a consistent way.
Be consistent in the way you communicate your brand.
A Brank Book establishing the correct use of your logo, strapline and company colours can help as a control point for internal users and external suppliers.
Your brand definition also extends internally to your employee handbook, internal newsletter, intranet and social media policy – your employees' perception matters. It is to them you look to as ambassadors of the brand.
For your customers and suppliers, building your brand is intrinsic in every touch-point you give them – from the way the phone is answered, how your sales team engage, how they are greeted in reception to how they view your facility, your product, and your after-sales.
Building a brand takes time, belief and consistency. Successful brand building inspires feelings of confidence, trust, value, and quality. It creates a customer experience.Get in touch
Knowledge is everything
With knowledge and insights, you can target more closely, maximise your budget, assess your risk, and act with more confidence.
Your information gathering process needs to be rigorous and on-going and it needs to cover your customers, prospects, market sectors, and competitors.
Customer profiling is a key component of developing your marketing strategy and understanding the depth of the relationships you hold with your customers. This is the starting point for the development of a business marketing strategy.Find out more

The marketing healthcheck is a quick and easy way to see what marketing communication materials and programmes you have and what you’re doing with them. We will look at:
- What marketing activity is working and why
- What marketing activity isn’t working or has stopped working and why
- Your current marketing measurement tools
The marketing healthcheck is best conducted in a face-to-face meeting so we can see the physical evidence of your current marketing initiatives and the challenges you face in your business that may have prevented you from maintaining marketing activity.
It is an invaluable benchmarking tool for moving your marketing forward and a useful exercise in assessing the budget and resources you have available.Book your healthcheck
