Psych!
It isn’t. In fact a little time spent defining your company’s brand will lead to big time (and money) savings down the road. How so? Well, by distilling and formalizing your company’s key traits, value propositions, personality and values, you take much of the guesswork out of communicating. That means that every time you sit down to craft an email, a press release, an ad headline or a major campaign, the hard work of deciding how to present your company has already been done.
Because let’s face it, marketers burn hours — days even — trying to decide whether this or that message is too serious, too silly, too creative, too sappy, too young or too stodgy to represent their company. Good branding works by establishing a set of rules by which all your communicators (staff, firms and vendors) play. The result is better, clearer, more consistent and more effective communications — and a lot of dollars saved in meeting and creative time.
So in summary: why brand? Simply to ensure that you don’t have to reinvent the wheel every time you set out to speak to your customers, stakeholders or employees. Try it, you’ll like it.
