Defining Your Brand
Establishing your brand goes beyond the logo and business cards – WHO ARE YOU and, most importantly, why should people give a damn? Most often, brands resemble the people within the company, because after all, that really is the company’s core. However, it comes down to the leadership team to define exactly what that looks like, put it down in black and white, and make sure that everyone in the company and beyond knows all about it.
You see, once you establish your brand it makes marketing, business strategy and even day-to-day operations much easier. So when someone asks, “Should we do X” the automatic question should be “Does this fit with who we are?” In the book “Made to Stick” the authors analyze one of the largest airlines in the United States, and frankly it is our litmus test when working with brands. You see, Southwest Airlines is THE low-fare airline. That is their brand – and it has worked very well for them over the years. So, when one of the executives of Southwest airlines wants to add an in-flight chicken salad sandwich, you know to ask “Does this help us in being THE low-fare airline?”
Awhile back we wrote a post about “Smashing Your Brand” and thought that we would follow on the shirt tails of that article to fill in exactly where to start to get your brand kickin’ ass and takin’ names. Our advice is to start with completing a brand profile for your company – even if you already have one, now is a great time to review it and make sure that it aligns with your vision of the company and is being executed against. This is our brand profile so feel free to use this as a template.
