What is Branding?

Your brand is the unique identity of your business, but it’s also so much more. Learn how branding can help you stand apart from your competition. Brand is a set of unique features that set a business apart from competitors.

Here is a brief list of pages and features Big Red Jelly can brand for you:

  • Mission statement
  • Theme
  • Tone

Why is Branding Important?

A consistent brand is important for associating your company with your products and services. It may also be associated with specific demographics,
styles, philosophies, etc. For example,  Apple is ‘cutting edge,’ and Nike is ‘intense.’ Leveraging strategy, resources, tools, and marketing to
create a strong positive perception of your company coherent with your brand values helps trigger an intended emotional response from the target audience in a way that differentiates the company. Branding demands an in-depth understanding of the target audience; it’s an iterative process.

Thematic Elements to Consider

  • Your brand is what makes your company memorable

    products, and services

    emotional connection

The 4 Steps to Effective Branding

1. Define who you are and what is important to your company
Ask yourself: how do you want to be seen? What needs does your brand satisfy? Determine your target audience, create your mission statement, and define your values, benefits, and features

2. Create Your Assets
This includes visual design: logo, color palette, typography (fonts), iconography, and other visual components. Building brand guidelines helps to ensure that future branding remains consistent and informed.

3. Establish a brand voice
If your brand were a person, how would they communicate? Think about terminology, tone, level of familiarity, etc. The voice will need to resonate with the target audience. Build a brand style guide to ensure that all brand communications use consistent voice and grammatical style.

4. Integrate your branding
Branding should be evident and purposeful wherever your business interacts with your customers. This could be through a website, product packaging, advertisements, social media, and/or 1:1 customer interactions

Weekly meetings were great and always something I always looked forward to. Their follow-through is fantastic. The branding and site both look great. It was definitely an improvement from what we previously had!

Polly HillekeSalmon River Rafting

They truly hit the nail on the head with my vision. I was so scared going into this worried if they could see what I wanted. They knew my wants/dislikes and asked the right questions. They were able to create such beautiful branding and a website for me. I'm not kidding when I cried tears when I saw my branding!

Caitlyn GrimesThe Cosy Goose

Awesome, knowledgeable and very professional!

Sandor MiklósEverdime

Big Red Jelly started out with the logo design. They made several revisions and worked with us so it’d be a smooth process. They helped with naming, color scheme, digital branding, and identity. That process gave us the confidence to move into website design and development.

Jim SaundersGourmet Dumplings

They always provided consistent communication. We had never hired a service to perform these services before so we weren't sure what to expect but came out the back end pleased with the experience.

Rollin SkinnerHampton Home Loans

I was not sure what direction I wanted to go with my branding. After asking me a number of questions, the team gave me guidance on options that would work great for me, my personality, and my company. Once we had that in place that is when the fun started! I had an incredible response as I engaged friends, family, and past clients on social media as I asked for their feedback and input. I have already referred people to Big Red Jelly and will continue to do so.

Scott HeatonRealtor

They listened carefully to us and everything we had in mind, and translated that into a really solid messaging plan with lots of good ideas of their own. They have been a joy to work with!

Kelley BirrellLedger Gurus

These folks are fantastic and excellent at what they do. They were able to create completely revamped branding for our rugby event. I loved what they did so much for our schools event, we hired them again to rebrand the largest youth rugby tournament in the US!

Michael CresslerNational Schools 7s

These guys are excellent! I would highly recommend them to anyone interested in getting a quality product in an amazingly fast time at very reasonable prices. They listened to our comments and concerns and responded timely and professionally to each and every one of them. Going with them is a slam dunk!
