When asked what distinguishes a successful company from one that fails to survive in today’s competitive marketplace, a variety of potential answers may come to mind. After all, there’s no single reason why businesses succeed or fail, and one significant weakness or strength could completely overshadow an arsenal of other factors. That being said, there are several factors that many successful business do have in common, one of those being a unique, distinctive and powerful brand identity.
So, what exactly does this mean? What all is included in a comprehensive brand identity? Ultimately, business owners should explore every fact of their communications infrastructure, including the fonts they use on posters and letterheads, the color schemes that adorn their websites and products, as well as the logo they use to represent themselves.
