Branding gives you a chance to distinguish yourself from competitors.
Branding gives you a chance to connect with customers.
Branding gives you….
I’m just going to stop—wasting your time telling you things you already know isn’t why I created this post.
The above-mentioned statements are true. But, they have nothing to do with the one thing that keeps your doors open—MONEY.
Three (relatively unknown) financial reasons why effective branding is extremely important for small businesses are:
Effective Branding Supports and Enables Profitable Advertising
Any advertising campaign you have—regardless of how good it is—will be thrown way out the window if it doesn’t lead customers to a strong brand.
Once you match your advertising to a strong brand, you can look forward to:
- An increase in conversions
- Accurate promotion of your products and services
- Effective business improvements based off feedback
And, of course, an increase in profit.
Effective Branding Gives You a Chance to Extend Your Reach—BIG TIME
Creating a strong brand is a lot of work, but the dividends make the effort well worth it. Once you’ve created and established your brand, your reach will be extended in a way you never imagined. You will:
- Have a strong online presence that doesn’t go unnoticed
- Be recognized by search engines
- Gain more clients/customers
- Strengthen bonds with current clients/customers
Your brand will become your biggest revenue generating asset.
Effective Branding Gives You the Opportunity to Increase Your Prices
And, while the above-mentioned companies are much bigger than yours, the same branding principles apply: increase prices as your brand strengthens.
Eventually, you’ll reach the point where your brand is trusted and you’re deemed an expert. When this happens, the financial benefits will be tremendous.
