The Importance Of Branding

pullWhen we meet someone new, within the first few seconds, we instinctively formulate assumptions about who he or she is, what he or she does, their personality, and so on. These assumptions are based on nothing but visual communication, this universal facet of human interaction holds true for the brands we interact with as well. Just as we analyze people’s hair, clothes and polka-dot socks; a brand’s corporate identity speaks volumes about the brand itself. A brand’s corporate identity is far more than a mere collection of colors, fonts and a logo. A brand’s corporate identity is in fact a promise, a promise to your audience. Communicating the brand’s attributes, beliefs and overall personality. The Googles and Coca Cola’s of this world understand that about their brands.

Brand Promise

A lot of time, money and design go into ensuring that when you pick up a Coke anywhere in the world, you do so with the promise of quality and refreshment. The red and white color pallet and iconic logo go beyond distinguishing the brand apart for the competition it also gives the audience a sense of the Coca Cola Company’s personality. Design professionals go to great lengths in creating exquisite corporate identities, which perfectly encapsulate a brand’s identity; every minute detail and design decision is carefully calculated, scrutinized and passed through a filter of expertise, talent and experience in the field of visual communication.


The paramount importance of a brands corporate identity emphasizes the need for consistency in adhering to the brand’s identity guidelines. Once design professionals have meticulously executed a brand’s identity, it runs the risk of counting for nothing if implemented incorrectly.

Confusion is costly

Consider for a moment, that you visit a doctor, and you are diagnosed with a particular ailment, the next day you go back and you are diagnosed with a different ailment. The symptoms are the same but the diagnosis is wildly different, would this not cause you to lose confidence with your doctor? The same basic idea is applicable to the relationship between a brand and its audience. If a brands presence is not consistent across all platforms it results in doubt and confutation from your audience. If a brand uses a different hue of red in their stationary and their digital material or has varying types of fonts for their logo, the brands stands very little chance of establishing itself as a trusted/recognizable entity in its industry. It all boils down to the simple truth that people will not trust a brand if they do not understand what said brand stands for, what it believes and what it promises…Its Identity!

Why Social Media Marketing?



What is social media marketing?

Social media marketing is the process of gaining traffic or attention through social media sites. To some entrepreneurs social media is the next big thing! It is powerful if used correctly and must be taken advantage of for marketing social media platforms, which are new channels for your brand’s voice and content.

How does social media marketing work?

You can use social media to help reach several business objectives, but the best social media strategies are those that focus on a more narrow rationale for social. What do you want to use social media for? Awareness? Sales? Loyalty?

For social media to be successful, one needs to take into consideration key measures. Are you going to measure ROI? Who will you be interacting with? Who is the target market? What are their demographics? What are you about? Prove that you are more than just a product or a service; you deliver an experience when people engage with your brand. Lastly a content or a channel plan needs to come into action and be distinct.

How will social media marketing benefit a brand?

Your brand will be easier to access for new clients, it will also become more familiar and recognizable to existing clients, thus, brand loyalty will improve. A study published by Convince and Convert found that 53% of Americans who follow brands on social media are more loyal to that brand.

Social media is cost effective. Even the paid advertising through twitter and Facebook are relatively cheap depending whether you set budgets or not.
Every social media platform you exist on is another path leading back to your site. The quality of your content will determine the interest generated. More traffic creates more leads, resulting in more opportunities.

Every post made on a social media platform is an opportunity for clients to convert. Each post creates a chance for someone to react, every reaction may lead to a site visit, which could eventually lead to a conversation. This means conversation rates will become higher. Interacting in social media channels humanizes brands and this is important because people like doing work with other people not companies.

Interacting with your clients on a regular basis shows good faith. When people want to brag or compliment a company they turn to social media. Though this also applies for when they want to complain about a company, so it works both ways this depends on you. The more people that are talking about you on social media, the more valuable and credible your brand will seem to prospective clients. Every customer interaction online is a chance to demonstrate the level of customer service you provide. If a customer complains, you can apologize publicly, if a customer compliments your company you can thank and recommend more products. Personal experiences let them know you care.

With social media, you are able to gain valuable information regarding your target market and what they’re interested in. You will be able to monitor user comments to see what they think of your business, this will help to improve you marketing to them and will result in an increase of sales and new clients.

In all I am able to say that social media has become a platform that has increased communication for companies and creates strong brand awareness, which improves customer service. Additionally, social media serves as a relatively inexpensive platform for organizations to implement marketing campaigns and I would highly recommend becoming part of this movement.

Animated video | A science well worth it

I am sure if you’ve ever considered having an animated film; Web Video or video produced, your first reaction to the price was to have your jaw drop just shy of the floor, followed by an experience similar to a cardiac arrest. After you’ve come to, you politely refuse, only to be confronted with a heftier price-tag when you seek out a ‘second opinion’ of sorts. The question then arises in the back of your mind, “Why is it so expensive, and is it even worth it?”. The answer to the latter part of that question is yes, it is well worth it to produce an animated video. The former, however, is a bit more complicated and requires a bit more explanation as to why it is worth it to pay an arm and a leg to have an animated video.


Video is a very memorable medium when used in conjunction with sound as it stimulates the audience in ways which standard print media does not. It also allows one the opportunity to make use of catchy gimmicks and jingles to improve the overall impact further. Furthermore, because Web Video is a visceral and audible medium, it creates an opportunity for what I like to call associative encoding, or ‘brainwashing’; and while it sounds horrible, associative encoding is a powerful marketing tool to facilitate the recall phase of memory. It is the reason for when we hear or see the term ‘Running,’ that we immediately think of the Nike brand and their range of athletic footwear.


SEO is heavily reliant on content. Images reign supreme as the best tool for reaching audiences on social media platforms such as Facebook, twitter and linkedIn; among others. It remains to be said the supplementing these images with video will improve not only the ranking of your images and content, or the visibility of your online profile, but also diversify your content marketing portfolio – which, in turn, keeps your audience interested in the content you provide online.


I believe that if used correctly, Web Video could give smaller companies a greater competitive edge over their larger, financially strapped competitors. If the capacity to do the work is available, small enterprises could attract much larger clients. Breaking even to justify the cost of the Web Video or the work force is much lower in this instance, and thus, turning over a profit also become easier.


There is a certain status that comes along with having an animated video. In my experience, when dealing with the average consumer, as well as other small businesses, Web Video often prompts for a “wow, that’s fancy,” type response. It is probably because only the larger organizations would have had access to animated projects in the past due to the extremely high costs involved with the new technology back then. With the reduction in production costs by over 380% since the advent of the animation industry and the less complicated nature of the programs and software, even the most technologically challenged consumer could have an Web Video produced at a fraction of the cost.


There are a thousand other things that animation could be beneficial for, but I believe that this is one of the most-important benefits of animation. As service-centric companies, time is our most-valuable commodity. When we spend most of that time supporting and providing information about a product that is relatively unknown to the consumer market, other areas in our businesses start to suffer – which is never a good thing.
As a firm believer in business automation, animation allows us to automate a segment of our business that is very difficult to replicate without the actual use of a person on the other end of the line. by automating support, we not only tailor content so that the product or service is understood exactly as it was intended to be used, but also it allows us to step away from supporting the product or service, but focus on selling it.
Animation allows us to create fancy looking tutorials or screen casts with step-by-step information, guiding our clients and customers through processes without having to get involved in the support process.


In my next article, I will be delving in a bit deeper and explaining what the actual process behind animation is and how we can use that to our advantage. In the meantime though, consider the benefits of animation, and if it is in line with what you’re going for, then I seriously recommend having an Web Video produced. it would be a step in the right direction. Your business and your bank account will thank you for it. If you enjoyed this article or would like to share your experience with animation, please do so in the comments section below, and don’t forget, share this with your friends and family using the social links below.
