Branding – Is yours as strong as it can be?

So what is branding? And why is it so important for your business?

Branding goes way beyond just a logo or graphic element.

When you think about your brand, you really want to think about your entire customer experience… everything from your logo, to your website, to your social media experiences.

Many small organizations and start-ups neglect spending necessary time thinking about their brand in this broad sense and the impact it has on their business.

The best branding is built on a strong idea… an idea that you and your staff can hold on to, can commit to, and can deliver upon.

Is your branding working for you?

10 reasons why your brand is important

  • Branding promotes recognition
  • Your brand helps set you apart from the competition
  • Your brand tells people about your business dna
  • Your brand provides motivation and direction for your staff
  • A strong brand generates referrals
  • A strong brand helps customers know what to expect
  • Your brand represents you and your promise to your customer
  • Your brand helps you create clarity and stay focused
  • Your brand helps you connect with your customers emotionally
  • A strong brand provides your business value

Analyse your own business card!

Your business card, you hand it out at networking events, business meetings and even to someone you overhear requiring the services you offer.

Business cards should represent the quality of your products and/or services. Make sure it’s as top notch as your business is!

Pick it up, ignore the design of it for just a few moments and feel it. Does it feel cheap, non resiliant, and generally feable. That’s the image you want to portray on your potential first impression? Continue reading

1 Year On From The Mobile Responsivity Algorithm Update

Firstly, is your website 100% mobile responsive? Are you sure?

As of April 21st 2015 if your website is not fully responsive, according to Google’s regulations, the SEO algorithm will penalise your website and your position on Google’s search results will begin to drop.

The Google algorithm is a structured coding system that dictates the order of the search results to provide the user with the most accurate search results.

There’s always updates being added to it to ensure that the user is still getting the most accurate results and generally improving the functionality.

Well I never thought I’d end up becoming a blogger!!!

As the title suggests creating a blog of my own is something I never thought I’d do. Although I was pretty good at English Language whilst at high school it’s not something I would really shout about in regards to my skill set.
