Developing a new and vibrant brand can be overwhelming and expensive. That's why we created a simple way for you to build your brand successfully in just five days! By following these five steps, you can develop a powerful brand efficiently, effectively, and with a smile on your face.
Day One : Develop A Personality
At Social Vida, we believe that your brand's identity is the most important step in the right direction for development. You have to start by imagining your brand more as a person and develop its core personality. Ask yourself...
What is your brands purpose? Who is your brand? Why is your brand existing?
Finally, name your brand. The name of your brand should reflect the personality that you have created.
Day Two: Identify Your Ideal Customer
Defining your brand's target audience is crucial. In order to sell your product you must first determine who you are selling the product to. Here is a list of questions to ask yourself to help narrow down your ideal customer:
What is the age range for your ideal customer? What is the lifestyle they live? Where are they located? What Social Media Platforms do they use? Does gender matter for your brand? What is their education level? How much money do they make?
Knowing your target audience will help you sell your brand to the right people. By knowing how to talk to them and where to find them, you will be able to grasp a better understanding of how to connect with them. Naturally, this will increase sales and productivity.
Day Three : Express Your Brands Vision
Now that you have developed who your brand is and who your ideal customer is, you’re ready to design what your brand will look like. This is the most creative and exciting part, as your brand begins to come alive in the details. These particular elements will express your brand to the world and help spread the message behind the vision.
Create a logo: This should easily express who your brand is in one glance. Think simple. Don't overthink this too much or you might get lost. And if you do, always fall back on “ Who ” your brand is. Font, image, and size
Create a color scheme: Try to collaborate 3 colors that look good together that feel like your brand and will drive your customer in.
Create a catchy tag line: This should sums up who your brand is and what you want to represent to your ideal customer. This first impression will spark an interest within potential customers.
Let your ideas and creativity flow and enjoy the ride!
