The BrandBlox Pillars:
The first thing people think about when they hear the word branding is a company’s logo. But, a better analogous word would be reputation, because your brand represents the value system that your company presents to the world.
Branding reflects your company’s reputation – it’s a set of human personality characteristics expressed through colors, design, logos, and tone of voice. True, a logo helps communicate your brand, but as a whole, your brand is seen, heard, and felt through the consistent messaging you deliver to your audiences.
Branding is the art of aligning what you want people to think about your company with what people actually do think about your company. And vice-versa. — Jay Baer, Convince and Convert
Your reputation is on the line
Consistent branding conveys your company’s reputation, builds trust, makes your company recognizable among competitors, and helps you connect with the right audience.
Of course, the flipside is that inconsistent branding can wreak havoc on your company’s reputation. Think of it like this: do you know anyone who would say or do anything just to appease the person they’re talking to? Do you trust that person? Probably not. The same goes for your brand. If you don’t present a clear, consistent identity, no one will take you seriously.
