Brand commitment isn’t just marketing jargon.
Your business already has a brand. In fact rather you realize it or not, everyone has a brand. The only decision you need to make is whether you want to define your business’s brand or allow it be to defined by others. A brand consists of many elements. Your logo, the design of your website and/or storefront, even the overall way you communicate with employees and clients. Therefore as a business owner it is vital that you make brand decisions about your business and stick to them. Why? In order for your brand to be successful you must make a commitment. Brand commitment is the best (and probably only) way to successfully communicate your business’s values, products, and services to current and potential customers.
Why is brand commitment important?
- Other’s are going to have a perception of your business no matter what you do. Making a commitment to your brand gives you the power to manage the way other’s view your business and it’s products and/or services.
- Having a commitment to your brand means that you’ll be delivering the same message each time you have an interaction with a customer. If done consistently over time, customers will come to know what they can expect from your business.
- Brand commitment differentiates your business from the rest. Actions will only take you so far. In order for your business to stand out and be remembered you need to find a recognizable logo and color scheme. Once you pick these items it’s equally important that you stick with them.
- Committing to your brand allows you to build upon your business’s previous successes. You worked hard to make your business what it is. Committing to your brand allows you to continue to build equity upon your efforts.
