Branding and marketing are closely interconnected. Without the brand image and history no company, no product can exist. And it certainly cannot affect consumers in a long lasting way. The brand of a business is its image, reputation, and overall personality. Specific marketing strategies are formulated in order to develop the brand. This is to influence consumer perception of a business. Branding is the act of integrating features. Such as a logo, design, mission statement, and a consistent theme throughout all marketing communications. All to create a strong, favorable perception of a company, its products, or services in the minds of customers.
Effective branding allows businesses to stand out from the competition and cultivate a loyal consumer base. There are two main types of branding nowadays which is on and offline process. Online branding happens thanks to the social media and various online platforms where you can constantly update already exists or potential consumers on the process of developing your brand image.
In-store branding differs from online branding in that you must consider the placement of items and props, which might influence how a buyer perceives your brand. Consumers who shop in-store get a more immersive experience since they can walk around and pick items up, but customers who shop online get a two-dimensional experience. Of course, certain branding components are consistent in both online and offline environments. These include logos and iconography that are consistent. Strong brand image is almost a guarantee that you will have a base of your loyal customers as well as the potential to gran the potential customers’ attention in a long lasting way.
