Benchmarking best practice branding

Branding

 A strong brand is not a luxury to be enjoyed only by companies like Nike or Coca-Cola. It is a key factor in the success and prosperity of every business regardless of their size.

Your brand health is guaranteed to have a significant impact on the consumer awareness of your brand AND your bottom line. It directly affects your ability to attract and retain the right customers and clients, to hire the best employees, and to grow.

A healthy brand is the hallmark of a best practice company or not-for-profit.

Effective branding can also help your organisation build trust, gain a higher profile and encourage people to support you.

Unfortunately it is also the most common thing most SME businesses either don't understand or neglect.
