Your brand is not a physical thing. It’s the perception of your business that others have and the feelings that your business or product(s) evoke. Think of these companies: Lidl, Apple, Chanel – the feelings and reactions you have are influenced by brand.
Your company brand includes the core values and personality of the business. A good understanding of your marketplace, competitors and prospects is key to developing a strong brand.
“Your brand is what other people say about you when you’re not in the room.”
Jezz Bezos, Amazon
Unlike brand, identity is something you have far more control over. Your identity is basically how your business looks and feels.
It includes all the visual elements of your brand, including your logo, colour palette and fonts. Everything that people see on your website, packaging, advertising, stationery and business cards is part of your identity.
