The Beginner’s Guide to Branding

How to Build a Brand

1] Honest

If your business is going to promise to deliver a certain service, that is exactly what you have to do. If you provide quotes, make sure they are as accurate as possible. Offering transparent pricing means there are no hidden extras, no small print, and your clients will know exactly what they are going to be getting and at what cost.

We often hear stories of customers visiting garages and being informed that several things are wrong with their car when all they actually needed was a new tyre.

What’s more, if the person the garage is trying to con knows more about cars than they thought, it could land them in hot water. Without a doubt, this gives a company a terrible reputation and can drive away the majority of customers.

2] Reliable

Having a reputation for being unreliable is something that will be hard to shake. Putting measures in place to ensure you promote a reliable image is imperative.

Your website must be reliable too. If a customer visits your website and it is down yet again, consider what you can do to rectify the situation. While godaddy pricing may be competitive, there are fantastic alternatives available.

Decide whether you can use a template to create a website using online support or think about employing someone to do it for you. Whatever you do, make sure that you have someone to call upon to ensure the website is not offline or contains dead links.

3] Value for money

This is where it is useful to check in with the competition. If you are charging 50% more for a very similar service than your rivals, people will automatically assume that you are not offering value for money. At worst, they will believe that you are trying to pull the wool over their eyes.

Of course, if you are able to carry out a premium service and have clear advantages, then it is possible to reasonably charge more.

Don’t make the mistake of confusing ‘value for money’ with ‘cheap’. Using the cheapest products will result in a mediocre outcome. It is still vital that you choose quality items, allowing you to carry out the best possible job.

4] Professional

Giving off an air of professionalism is of utmost importance for every business, whether established or just starting out. Being seen as an amateur within your industry could spell the end for your business. Choose a name that is clear, a logo that is attractive, and a colour scheme that can be used across all of your promotional material.

Make sure you use social media in a responsible manner. If a troll attacks, which happens to most people at some point, do not lower yourself by replying in an equally derogatory way.

Simply answer the question fairly and then move on. If the troll continues to try to get you to bite, choose to ignore or delete the comments (particularly important if they become personal to you or any of your clientele).
