The Importance Of Small Business Branding
With so many large, expansive companies the America, it may seem difficult for small businesses to compete in any way. How can you stand up to a company that prides itself on its expansive resources, expensive advertising, and ability to offer its products and services easily? The answer is authenticity–the one weakness that many large companies possess. Most Americans feel that a number of large companies care more about making a buck than providing good customer service. Worse, people may feel that their needs may not be met because the company simply does things conveniently. When it comes to products, large companies may seem to the consumer base like sellers of cheaply and poorly built products. As a small businessperson, you can make a large profit by offering products that are built with care, like handmade clothing and furniture, and by promoting your business’s personal touch. Customers will feel that your business provides an authentic and charming alternative to other mass-produced products. When you mark your authentic products with woven labels, you know that your brand name, logo, and maybe even more will be there for your customers to see and remember.
Woven labels can be the product tags, warning tags, information labels, and more, which are usually sewed onto a fabric product. They can carry information in a discreet but still apparent way, while also saving space.
In order to know what to put on a woven label, though, you will need a good brand with an interesting and eye-catching logo, a memorable slogan, and more. Here are some tips to keep in mind when you are trying to visually advertise your company’s name.
As previously stated, you will want to stand out from large companies that are essentially your competition. How are you more unique? How are you newer and fresher or older and more experienced with the product type you offer? Your company’s logo should be something unique and memorable for this reason. Essentially, if you are a consumer flipping through product logos, how will your company’s visual representation grab attention?
Consider your company’s personality. Do you pride yourself on a specific product type or model? What does this say about your company and employees? What is your personality? Imagine that your company is an individual on a dating site, trying to be unique and attractive while also coming off as approachable. If this seems confusing or overwhelming to try to tackle, then consider drafting a company logo that is appealing to you. Do you just want to include your company’s name, or do you also want to create a picture representation of your company, a visual logo that you will want to be associated with your company name? If you create something that is appealing to you and says something about your product, it will be effective in grabbing consumer attention.
Be sure your company logo is unique. Many small businesses have a logo and company name that is a little too similar to another company’s. This is especially troublesome if your company name and logo remind people of another company instead of your own.
Do you want a company slogan? Would you like this to be included on your products? If so, then you will need to make a few considerations. First off, think about what your company is, what it offers, what it represents, and what its personality is. Secondly, think of a brief, catchy phrase that represents this personality. Catchy phrases usually either rhyme or include repetition of words or structure. This makes them memorable. Be sure that what people remember, though, is a good detail about your company!
When you feel that you have developed a company, logo, slogan, and product that are unique, memorable, and of high quality, secure your company’s professionalism by planting this information on woven labels, so that your company name and details are not forgotten.
