- Establish your target audience
If your brand doesn’t resonate with your audience, it won’t lead to any awareness, recognition, or trust. Establishing a target audience ensures that you are reaching out to the people that are most likely to find value in who you are and what you do. Who is your ideal customer? Who does your product serve? Why did you create a business in the first place? The answers to these questions will inform your branding decisions now and in the future.
- Define your values, features, and benefits
At this stage, it’s important to define what makes you stand out from your competition. While there may be many active competitors in your field, your competition cannot replicate how your brand makes your customers feel. The value you provide to your customers makes you unique, which is why you need to stress the fact that your brand can improve your customer's lives. Define what makes you stand out and focus on the benefit and value you can provide to your audience.
- Find your visual style
A big part of your brand identity is your visual style. Finding the visual style of your brand will give your company something recognizable to your audience. This includes everything from your logo, color theme, font, iconography, and any other visual components that your brand requires.
- Develop your brand voice
Finally, you need to develop your brand voice. What messages are you trying to communicate? What is the tone of your brand voice? Conversational? Educational? Corporate? Your brand voice needs to connect and resonate with your audience while communicating your organization's focal points.
