BRAND STRATEGY PROVIDES SOLID GUIDANCE FOR YOUR MARKETING EFFORTS
WHY CALIBRATING YOUR BRAND COMPASS IS WORTH THE INVESTMENT
A well-done brand strategy is the decision-making tool you need to ensure you are making marketing and operational decisions with your head and not your gut. It is the fundamental foundation of your brand.
While there are many paths to a solid strategy, at DesignScout, we follow our time-tested Brand Compass method. We solidify your brand’s point of view, identify the emotional center of your brand (your North Star), suss out your core tenets, and shape your brand’s tone of voice. This strategy provides you with an evergreen foundation on which to build your empire.
Let’s dive into what you get out of a well-done brand strategy:
Brand Strategy Aligns Stakeholders
Simply put, a solid brand strategy can ensure everyone is on the same page, from employees and vendors all the way up to the C Suite. No more disconnect between the marketing department and the CEO (because let’s face it, someone’s “gut feeling” is highly arbitrary). No more confusing contractors with half-baked brand guidelines. Clarity and simplicity come from knowing exactly who your brand is for and how you communicate that.
Brand Strategy Provides a Road Map
Brand strategy will point you in the right direction, every time. No second-guessing whether or not a new ad or social media post is on-brand for you—you’ll have the toolkit to know definitively what to say and how to say it.
Brand Strategy Defines Company Culture
A strong brand strategy will define your company culture inside and out. From the way you interact with customers or clients to the way employees interact with each other, your company culture is as much a part of your brand as your logo or color palette.
Brand Strategy Inspires Creators
Inspire your creators, employees, and leadership with a laser-focused strategy. When your best minds aren’t worrying about how to communicate your brand point of view, they can focus on using their creative superpowers to grow, scale, and build your business.
Brand Strategy Creates Fans
Strategic brands don’t assume everyone is part of their target audience. Your brand strategy gives you the guidance to go after the right audience: the kind of audience your brand was built for. When you’re clear on your messaging and positioning, you’ll have the tools to speak directly to those people and make them fall head-over-heels, shout-it-from-the-rooftops in love with your brand and mission.
