16 Feb Small business branding: Why visual branding experts should be involved with your brand from the start
Web video advertising can play a huge role in building a brand atmosphere. This is an important point to remember as few people understand what brand atmosphere is.
Businesses are only as strong as their brand. Whether you’re running a small business from your home or a multi-national corporation, your brand is the way potential and existing clients perceive your company. A crucial part of building a brand is creating a visual scheme for that brand – this scheme needs to be consistent and memorable.
This is often something that business owners only consider after they’ve got their business up and running. By this point, it can be hard to take a step back and re-think the way you’ve been doing things (especially if your logo, corporate colours etc. have already been established).
Crafting a strong brand takes experience and strategic foresight. When you are crafting your brand you will need to think about your visual brand language and this extends far beyond just design and colour scheme. An experienced brand expert can help you determine everything from shape, fonts and colour to other design elements and the overall finish of your products or logos. Seeing as this plays such an important role in the strength of your brand, it’s crucial to not leave this too late.
The sooner you invest in well thought-out, brilliant visual branding for your business, the better. While this type of branding is important in everything from flyers and printed materials to product packaging, it can also be carried through to video marketing. Many small businesses tend to find video marketing a bit intimidating because it’s perceived as an expensive splurge that only big corporates can afford. Thanks to technological developments, this couldn’t be further from the truth.
