Does your company have a brand?

We not only (brand) style your celebrations with details but we also help brand companies. Branding your company should be one of the top priorities these days. Companies have gotten where they are today because of their branding. For instance, Coca-Cola is where they are today because of their brand. They have been the top global brand for over 10 years. Google has made its way up the ladder going from #20 in 2007 to #10 in 2008 and is currently placed at #7 among the best global brands. Branding your company will take you one step ahead of the game. The companies that have the best global brands have succeeded because of branding.

Branding Tips:
• Focus on what your business achieves for its customers. Your brand is NO GOOD to you if it isn’t delivering what customers want. Customers come FIRST.
• Take ownership of your brand. Pay attention to customers’ needs, but you should still control what you want your brand to mean to them.
• Be honest. If you don’t believe in your brand, no one else will.
• Keep your brand simple by focusing on a small number of key brand values.
• Be consistent. Every aspect of your business should make customers feel the same way about you.
• Be thorough. Look at all your systems to make sure they help to support your brand
• Involve employees. Make sure they understand your brand and believe in it.
• Communicate your brand. Make sure every advertisement, brochure and letter helps reinforce the same message. If you have a logo, use it EVERYWHERE, but make sure the quality is CONSISTENT.
• Meet and exceed what your brand promises. Failing, just once, can cause lasting damage to your brand.
 • Manage your brand. Continually look for opportunities to make improvements. And don’t be afraid to make changes to reflect shifts in the way you do business or new trends in your market.
