A brand is one of the most important assets of a business. Good branding gives a company several advantages including establishing a positive reputation and building an image attractive to consumers. A good corporate brand establishes confidence, loyalty and a well-built customer relationship.
To establish and increase the effectiveness of your brand in the market, here are 3 ways you can build and maintain your brands reputations.
- Establish trust. Keep your word in terms of providing services and paying vendors. This will help build credibility with customers.
- Be approachable and responsive. Answer emails promptly and return calls on time. Let your customer know they are very important to you and your organization.
- Resolve conflicts and errors. Don’t make excuses or place blame on the customer if it is an issue that is the fault of the company. An infuriated customer can become your biggest supporter if you resolve errors or mistakes quickly and amicable!
Your brand is a pledge that helps to create consumer perceptions and expectations through its own unique personality. Your brand is represented by solid fundamentals that create a visual, auditory, and olfactory brand identity. Example; Brand logo, Colour/s theme, Marketing and Advertising Materials, Letterhead, Signage and Social Media Online Presence.
The reputation of your business depends on ensuring that the business delivers on its promises made to customers and vendors. Being transparent, dependable and open are essential to the continued existence of any company. Bottom-line, maintaining a positive reputation is essential to the success, relevance and survival of your business.
Have a great week!
