What are the magic ingredients for building a strong brand, attracting new customers and building trust with your target market?
Gareth Helm, Chief Marketing Officer for ZPG gave his top tips for building and maintaining a strong brand identity and standing out in a crowded market in a video interview. Here are the top 3 takeaways:
Consistency, consistency, consistency
Once your brand identity is set it’s crucial that it’s executed consistently across every possible customer touchpoint. And this extends beyond logos and colour schemes, to less obvious channels, such as your fleet of cars and how invoices are presented and delivered.
Know your elevator pitch
Getting customer attention is hard, so don’t waste any opportunities. Work with your team to come up with an elevator pitch that gets your agency’s unique selling point across concisely, and can be used in every scenario. It needs to set you apart from competitors and it should be a point of difference that extends beyond money.
Stay true to your values
Your business will evolve over time and so may your brand identity, but staying true to your core values is important. Your customers have chosen your company because they identify with your message so try to stay faithful to those who have helped you grow. But do ensure that you give your brand a regular refresh to modernise your look.
