Who are you?
It sounds like a weird and slightly existential question, but really, who? When you are creating a brand, you need to take a hard look at how you want to portray yourself online! There are a few elements of this, including:
👉 brand identity
Sound like a lot to consider? We’ve got solutions to make it easy peasy, lemon squeezy – just for you. See the deets below.
Clear Brand Identity
Your brand is going to show who you are to your audience. This needs to include a clear purpose and positioning, a brand name, and a consistent tone and voice. Take a look at what you’re promoting and go from there – are you a personal trainer? You will want to promote your training options and have an inspirational tone (think David Goggins except… maybe nicer?). Are you a baker? Consider a sweet twist to your branding, with promotion of your various cupcake and pie concoctions (sugar, spice, and everything nice, ya hear?).
Beyond a clear voice and tone, it’s important to visually encourage your audience with your brand. For the personal trainer example, create a logo that includes some aspect of fitness – maybe a tennis shoe or kettlebell. For a baker, maybe a cupcake or piped lettering would suit your logo best. Be sure to choose colors that reflect you well – darker colors may make more sense for the trainer example, where as pastels would be more appropriate for the baker!
