Developing a brand identity is actually a lot harder and more challenging than you would think.
When you look at someone for the first time, what’s the first thing that comes into your mind? Would it be their appearance, characteristics, or personality? Obviously it would be their appearance, because you have never met that person prior to that. You would be looking at their appearance to identify and determine what kind of person you are currently looking at.
Before launching your products to the market, you will need to create an identity to show people who you are. Consider it as an introduction of your brand into your prospective customers. In the marketing world where everyone is talking, the one who stays silent will be left behind. For your brand to be able to ‘talk’ to your customers, an identity needs to be made first. Nobody would ever bother looking into a product without anything to explain what it is or who produces that. So, it’s only reasonable for you to create an identity to your brand first before launching it to public.
As stated earlier, it’s not easy to create a brand identity, especially if you have no idea in what way you are going to market your products. You can’t just merely be all ‘anything goes’ when creating your brand. Every single product you see in a supermarket has its own distinctive packaging design and message with the purpose to attract the right customers. You too, will need to study about where you are going to market your brand to. Once you’ve found out which demographics you will be selling your products to, you can finally create your brand identity.
What needs to be kept in mind, however, is that you will need to be very specific with your target market. The more broad the demographic, the harder it will be for you to penetrate your customers with your brand identity. Determine the best logo, message, slogan, jingle, everything that can help people to remember your brand.
