Brand, Branding, & Brand Strategy: Unraveling the Trio

Have you ever found yourself tangled in the web of brand, branding, and brand strategy? You’re not alone. It’s a mix-up we hear about from clients, pals, and even those on the branding battlefield. Given that we’re pretty much living and breathing all things brand, we thought, “Why not clear the air?”

What Exactly is a Brand?

Think brand is just a flashy logo or a catchy name? Think again. The brand is the soul of everything your business does. From the vibe of your website to how your receptionist greets callers, even down to the ambience of your office bathroom – it’s all brand. The brand is that invisible thread weaving through each aspect of your business, making it crucial for broadcasting what you stand for. Oh, and ever caught a whiff of something that instantly reminded you of a brand? Yep, that’s brand magic at work. When a brand hits the bullseye, it’s a sight (and smell) to behold.

Take Nike, for instance. The swoosh? Just the tip of the iceberg. Nike’s essence is about awakening the athlete within us all, a mission that pulses through every product, campaign, and interaction.

And Then, There’s Branding

Here’s where things get a tad more tangible. Branding is all about the visual and sensory signals that make your brand unmistakably yours. It’s the look, the feel, and even the sound that brings your brand to mind without its name ever popping up. The startup chime of a Macbook? That’s branding. The illuminated Apple logo? Pure branding genius.

Navigating Brand Strategy

Brand strategy is where the rubber meets the road. It’s your master plan, leveraging your brand and branding to communicate your core. It outlines the who, what, when, where, how, and why of sharing your brand with the world. Think of it as the compass guiding how you, your team, and your partners grow your brand’s presence. It’s about building something that not only stands the test of time but thrives.
