Branding has the power to increase revenue by as much as 20%. I’ve had clients report increasing their prices by 20-30% after completing their rebrand and booking even more clients than before at their new prices.
Branding lends credibility to your business. When people are spending top dollar on a service or product, they NEED to see you as a trustworthy, put together biz.
Branding can give you the edge you need to be an authority in your industry. Think of some of the top photographers/wedding planners/etc in your specific industry. Go to their website, look at their emails and social media. Chances are, not only are they talented at what they do, their website and branding are also top notch.
Strategic branding targets and attracts the right people. Want to work with people who value certain things like high end details or connection? A carefully curated brand communicates that to the right people.
I not only went to school for graphic design and worked in the corporate world as a designer, but I’ve taken a number of courses for design and business/branding strategy.
Additionally, I was a photographer for several years shooting weddings and portraits. I’ve been in the creative small business world for awhile – I understand the unique struggles creative businesses face and I know the industries I design for well.
All of this experience enables me to create a strong and strategy-based brand that will help your business grow.
A brand that isn’t working for you can stand in the way of you and the people you want to work with most. At worst poor branding can cost you business (first impressions are everything) and at best, it can hinder you from moving forward into the next stage of your business.
Also, let’s be honest, while DIY is a good option at the beginning, it takes SO much time figuring out something that’s not your thing and you’re not even sure if it’s working for you. Trust me, I’ve been there in my own business and have had to outsource to help my business grow.
These are the kinds of problems that branding can solve.
So yes, branding is absolutely an investment – but it’s a worthwhile one.
