I have been building winning brands for 25 years and am the founder of a leading branding agency - Spellbrand.
In all these years, I identified 3 fundamental challenges that business owners struggle with and which lead to slow growth, lack of sales and revenue, and abysmal profits.
In fact, they are a lot easier to solve than most people think. You just need to change how you're thinking about them.
Here they are, and how to solve them:
1) Inauthentic Essence: Most brands have an inauthentic core essence and this makes marketing and connecting with the core audience very difficult.
So start by creating an authentic inner core based on a higher purpose goal, an internal brand purpose, robust core values, a meaningful vision and mission, deep audience personas, and a relevant brand story.
2) Muddled Brand Message: This issue arises due to point #1 above.
To fix this, create brand message blocks from the various core elements, break those blocks into story blocks, and for each, create micro-stories. Intersperse these with occasional sales messages.
3) Visual Inconsistency: This arises due to point #2 above. To fix this, align your visual language to points #1 and point #2.
Create your brand identity and other visual elements that align with the worldview of your audience personas and are not arbitrarily picked from trends.
See? That wasn't so hard.
