Hey I’m Dani Myers the CEO and lead strategist  at Myers Marketing Management here in Tulsa and   I’m proud to say that Myers marketing management is one of Tulsa’s Premier branding agencies. Today, I want to talk to you a little bit about  the importance of your brand identity and taking the time to really form what that is for your  company. So, when we’re walking in business through usually a startup or a new CEO has  come aboard a business that we’re working with and so when we’re walking someone through a brand development project or really process if Core Values, Mission, Purpose.
I’m being honest there’s a few things that we’re  looking at as far as deliverables go we usually  always start with what are your core values. So, we start with what is your mission statement. What is the purpose of your company? Past that, we start digging into more of the brand identity talking about colors talking about the feel of  your logo, the relatable brands to the colors and design that you’ve chosen for consumers. You  always want to be thinking about whenever you’re looking at building a brand you always want to be thinking about the consumer and how they’re going to receive the information it’s less about  how you feel and what your personal preferences are you definitely need to relate to the brand but  it’s less about your personal preferences and it’s more about how it’s going to be consumed by your  customers. So, when we’re looking at developing a solid brand identity it really serves that that  Foundation of why do you even exist right all the way down to the details of what fonts you’re going to use what colors you’re going to use. One thing that I see businesses fall into kind of this trap is they’ll have a brand  develop but they never check in with their customers whether it be through surveys or even utilizing some of  the amazing ads that meta has. As far as like how aware you are pf your ideal customers to your brand and spend some money on that research piece so that you know how people are showing  up in relation to your branding. Is it working? Is it not working? Is it the ad spend that’s  working or is it the actual intention of being a household name and being able to be recalled  as a brand when your customers need it most? So, if you’re in the process of building a brand  identity or rebuilding your brand’s identity or maybe for a lot of startups sure you know five ten years in and you’re like wait a minute did I do that right and you really want to put some foundation back to your brand so that it has the stamina and the um  capacity to get you through the next 10 years whenever stage of brand development you’re in, we would love to hear your story.
