Clearly defining your brand is the first step in creating a successful brand strategy and creates guidelines for the remainder of your strategic decisions.

When beginning the journey of launching a new brand, there are several steps in between coming up with the concept and getting it out in the market. Once you know what product or service you are going to offer, there are a few key elements you need to address to truly define your brand. Clearly defining your brand is the first step in creating a successful brand strategy and creates guidelines for the remainder of your strategic decisions. Defining your brand is also an important step in building a strong and cohesive brand identity. Here is a list of the key areas you need to adequately address to define your brand:

  • Define your brand’s purpose: What is the reason for your brand’s existence? What problem does it solve or what need does it fulfill?
  • Define your brand’s personality: What is the character or tone of your brand? How do you want your brand to be perceived by your audience?
  • Define your brand’s values: What are the core values that guide your brand? What do you believe in and stand for?
  • Define your target audience: Who are you trying to reach with your brand? What are their needs, desires, and values?
  • Define your brand’s unique selling proposition (USP): What sets your brand apart from competitors? What value do you offer that they don’t?
  • Define your brand’s mission and vision: What is your brand’s long-term purpose and what do you hope to achieve?

Defining your brand will help you create a consistent and cohesive brand identity, and ultimately help you better connect with your target audience and achieve your business goals. By developing strong statements in each area listed above, you are creating guidelines and an easier path for yourself and you continue to build your brand strategy. Each subsequent step will be dependent on fitting into these defined areas. At BuzzShift, strategy is what we do best, and we bake it into everything that we do.
