Basic Brand Management – Keep Things Simple And Consistent

Visual Consistency – Critical to build your Perception in the Marketplace

Having worked for several years with small-to-mid size companies on a daily basis, the most common issue I find is lack of consistency in their visual identity. These businesses all have the reasons for not developing consistent brand marketing ranging from belief that doing so would be cost prohibitive, to not believing the scope of their business is large enough for consistency to matter.

The truth is that keeping your visuals consistent across media is one of the most effective and most basic brand management strategy you can leverage to build perception in the marketplace.

Brand Management & Visual Consistency - A Marketing Goal

The costs of creating consistency can be minimized, particularly if it is planned and executed over time as a company’s visuals are updated. Consistent brand management improves perceived value resulting in consumers having a clear picture of a brand and becoming more willing to participate. 

This will make the cost upfront of updating materials absorbed by the more focused marketing and potential for an easier sell. And by keeping a brand’s visuals consistent, it’s much easier to focus on faster message communication with potential customers instead of having to establish and build brand in customers’ minds with every external communication a company makes.
