McDonald’s, Apple, Cadbury’s. Just these simple few words evoke images of the Golden Arches, an apple with a clean bite taken out of it and that distinct purple colour. That is the importance of concise and consistent branding – that a single word resonates across the world. As a business owner, brand awareness is one of the most important things to consider for your company. It is the key to getting your company recognised and making your mark on the world and in your industry. Without impactful branding, your business could be overlooked in favour of your competitors. So, how do you stop your business from fading into the background?

Understanding Brand Awareness

So, what is branding? Brand awareness refers to how familiar your target audience is with your business and how they recognise it which is crucial for customer loyalty and market awareness. You likely come across examples of branding and brand awareness every single day: from Starbucks and Disney to the National Rail. Many of these brands can be identified at a glance and foster a sense of trust and recognition. Brand awareness is so much more than just a logo or tagline, it is a well-considered combination of your business’s story, aesthetics, user experience and values. Branding sets the tone for who you are, what you do, how you do it and what inspires you to do it. Whether you’re a start-up or a well-established company, brand awareness is hugely valuable when marketing and promoting your company, services and products – particularly when you’re just starting out.

Why is brand awareness important?

Your branding says so much about your business. Where would Nike be without their iconic tick? Who would have thought that a simple ‘Du-Dun’ could evoke an entire streaming service? And why is the Colonel so reminiscent of chicken? The stylistic choices you make for your business are essential to forming a coherent, trusted and memorable brand. But why is brand awareness so important?

  • Brand Awareness Fosters Trust

Getting customers to trust your services and ethos is vital to your long-term success. In a world saturated with hundreds and thousands of competitors, standing out is vital – this is where brand awareness comes in. Taking time to instil brand trust in consumers is one of the best ways of guaranteeing new customers, repeat business and word-of-mouth recommendations. When you invest in creating a recognisable brand, you can establish a trustworthy and sincere business ethos that will keep customers returning to use your products and services time and time again.

  • Brand Awareness Creates Association

Have you ever referred to a hot tub as a Jacuzzi? Ever ‘Googled’ something? Or put your leftovers in an empty tub and called it Tupperware? If you’ve done any of these, branding has had an impact on you. Jacuzzi is a brand of hot tubs, Google is one of many search engines and Tupperware is a container brand, but many of us use these terms to broadly describe products or services. This is the impact of branding and an example of how branding creates association. The effect of branding on the subconscious should never be underestimated and if your branding is impactful enough, your customers will do the work for you.

  • Brand Awareness Builds Brand Value

Brand value, or brand equity is typically determined by consumer experiences with your company and their overall perception of your brand. Building brand value allows customers to create positive experiences and interactions with your business such as with repeat business, social media interactions and reviews. Brand value can significantly improve your business success, reach and profit for long-term results. For example, businesses with a higher brand value can charge higher prices due to their higher perceived value, they can expand business services more frequently and have a greater social impact.

  • Brand Awareness Helps Customers Identify Your Business

Once you’ve made a statement with your business branding, customers will begin to recognise it without assistance and will repeatedly seek your services out. What’s more, consumers may begin to prefer your company over other similar brands which establishes loyalty that can see customers return and make recommendations to friends and family. The ultimate goal of successful branding is to help customers connect your branding with your business without a single thought, spurring them to revisit time and time again.

When it comes to brand awareness, the benefits it delivers to your business are extensive. From fostering a sense of trust and encouraging repeat business to building brand value and helping your company be recognised in the wider market, there’s no reason not to consider quality, bespoke branding for your company.
