Brand name? Check. Logo? Check. Slogan? Check. All set.
So you’ve decided to launch your brand, and you’ve also prepared everything that is needed to launch your brand like creating its name, logo, slogan, vision, etc. Now, it’s time for you to sell your products and gain as much money as possible. Yippee!
You might probably have noticed and realized that launching a brand is not that easy. You need to think of things like how to outrun the competition where your brand belongs, how to attain loyal customers, et cetera et cetera. Well, you are right if you think so. But did you know that there are more things you need to keep your eyes on to make the launching of your brand successful?
And here are the things you need to keep your eyes on when launching your brand:
1. Not having an identity that can be remembered by people.
The whole point of branding is ‘making yourself or your brand different than any other people or brands’. If your brand doesn’t have a different and interesting value that can pique people’s interests, you’re going to have a hard time making people like your brand. Probably add some features or services that any other brands don’t offer, but remember to keep the relevancy of your added value, so your brand won’t turn out as a mediocre brand that tries too hard and ends up being a weird brand
2. Overexcited and satisfied over an achievement or simple successes.
When things go your way, it’s just like heaven on earth. Perfection. A total satisfaction for you and your brand. But don’t let your achievement blind your eyes as it could be the downfall of your business. There will be times when your brand will have a hard time to generate sales, and it’s common for new brands to happen. So, don’t be blinded over few achievements, because if you can achieve that, you’re able to achieve something bigger than that.
3. Gives up too quickly and not having patience.
This is the exact opposite of the factor mentioned before. When things don’t go your way, you might feel depressed and think “I think I should just end my business.” No, you shouldn’t. Everything takes time, including your sales. Don’t get depressed and feel bad for your brand, instead, reflect. Think why things would go that way and not your way. That way, you can learn how to be patient and not over-expecting something to happen.
If you believe that your brand has the quality, then you shouldn’t give up too easily.
The things mentioned above often are often the reasons why the launch of some brands fails. Keep these things in mind so your brand will know how to react to problems, and ultimately have the perfect start.
