5 Ways Investing in Your Brand Drives Sales
Brand strategy is an overlooked part of running a successful business.
You might have the product. You might have the website. But do you have the right branding?
Investing in your brand can increase recognition and drive sales. It can create long-lasting loyalty among consumers instead of having you disappear among competitors.
Keep reading to discover how investing in your brand can drive sales.
Create an Emotional Connection with Existing Customers
The entire purpose of brand strategy is to create an emotional connection with customers – including prospective customers and current customers.
Good brand strategy resonates with your target audience. It makes them feel a certain type of way. It makes customers feel like they’re part of something more than just a simple sale.
Whether you’re selling women’s deodorant or a luxury vehicle, it’s important to make the customer feel like they’re more than just a notch on your spreadsheet. Good brand strategy accomplishes that.
Drive Customer Loyalty
Your best salespeople are happy customers. Your product might create happy customers. But are those customers loyal to your brand?
Good branding drives customer loyalty. It makes it easy for customers to recommend a distinct product to friends and family.
Customers are more likely to continue buying a product with solid branding. They’ve purchased that product before, they connect that brand with value, and they’re less likely to switch away.
Without solid branding, your product blends into the rest of the market. Your product is interchangeable with others in your niche, and customers don’t care. By establishing a distinct, recognizable, and coherent brand, you can ensure your customers stay loyal to you – and continue promoting your product as your best salespeople.
Promote Better Product Recognition
Customers are more comfortable buying from a brand they recognize.
Distinctive branding sets you apart from competitors. No matter which industry you’re in, good branding makes it easy to distinguish your product from the rest.
All else being equal, customers are more likely to buy a product they recognize. Your product might not be better than competitors. However, if customers recognize it, they’ll assume it’s better. You invested in smarter branding, and customers connect that branding with higher-value products.
There might not be a good reason to choose your product over a competitor’s product. Give customers a reason by investing in better branding.
Keep People Talking About Your Product
It’s easier to talk about products with coherent branding. It’s harder to talk about generic products with forgettable names.
By investing in better branding, you can keep people talking about your product.
Instead of just telling friends and family about the new electric razor they purchased, you can get people talking about your new XYZ Razor 9000, which uses Triple-Helix Blade Technology to provide the Smoothest Shave Ever – Guaranteed. It’s a cheesy example – but it creates a connection in your customers’ minds between your product and quality.
Stand Out in Crowded Online Marketplaces
Whether you’re a local restaurant or an electric scooter manufacturer, good branding can help you stand out in crowded online marketplaces.
When people look for recommendations online, your branding can put yourself at the top of the list. You can’t write a list of the best razors, for example, without including the latest XYZ Razor 9000.
Meanwhile, your distinctive design – like color scheme, packaging, and presentation, helps your products physically stick out on online marketplaces, catching the eye of customers.
Instead of blending in with tiles of dozens of similar products on aggregator websites or shopping portals, customers can quickly find your product because good branding made it stand out.
