What does branding mean?
Branding is who you are as a business, it represents all things associated with you, your business, your logo, and everything in between. Does your business name translate into a different language as something offensive? Does your logo represent a controversial political party? Does it depict who you are and what you do? The idiosyncrasies that make up the full picture of your business can go all the way to your spokesperson and their past. It is imperative that your business is you and whatever you do, it is perceived that your business does.
What is the purpose of branding?
If you owned a family-run Mexican restaurant calling itself “Big Tacos ‘R’ US,” what would the result be? For one, it is a bit culturally insensitive, however, it certainly tells people that you’re a Mexican restaurant. The overall public sentiment will be what defines you and being aware of vernacular that (while an inside joke at home), can be offensive to an entire race of people. The other big part of this to keep in mind is that once something is online, it’s there forever, there are always ways to recover data, and if people want to find something they will find it.

This is not to sound like a doom and gloom blog, mistakes are made and no one is perfect, but it highlights the importance of branding in business. It can be the difference between customers arriving at your business and being disappointed because they were misled and customers arriving at your business and telling all of their friends how much they loved it.
