Branding strategy goes way beyond just a logo or graphic element. When you think about your brand, you really want to think about your entire customer experience – everything from company logo, website, and social media platforms, the way your staff answer the phone, to the way customers experience your services. When you look at this broad definition of branding, it can be overwhelming to think about what is involved in brand. In short, the brand is the way customers perceive your firm and is a priceless intelligence property, which can bring tremendous value to your firm.
