Make the Best First Impression with Professional Branding

By Dyno Creative | January 24, 2023

First Impressions Matter

As you know, first impressions are everything! Promoting your business with poorly made, lackluster branding is like going on a first date without brushing your teeth – you’re not going to make a good impression. How you showcase your business is equally as important as the “dress to impress” advice businessmen and businesswomen frequently follow.

Making professional branding a top priority in 2023 is an excellent resolution for any business looking to evolve. Professional branding is much more than selecting a logo; it’s creating the best version of your business story and conveying it to the world. By investing time and money into professional branding, your business will be better equipped to make the best first impression when selling services, products, or pitching to potential new clients. 

If you are ready to create an identity that communicates who you are clearly and effectively, exemplify credibility, and gain an unbeatable advantage in a crowded marketplace, you’ve come to the right place!

Is Your Current Branding Making an Impact?

Your target audience has a plethora of businesses to choose from, so it is important to make your business stand out in a valuable way! Ask yourself this—Is your current branding making an impact? 

If you aren’t sure how to answer that question, chances are you either don’t have professional branding in place or you don’t really know what kind of impact your current branding has on your target audience. 

The first thing you need to remember is this—the sole purpose of your business is to provide value to your target audience. That’s it. In order to do that, you need to gain customers. And in order to do that, you need to have a brand that your audience will connect with and remember.

How can this be achieved, you ask? Through professional branding. 

Investing in professional branding can ensure that you not only make a great first impression but that you have a lasting positive impression that will lead to future sales. 

So, Where Do I Start?

Investing in professional branding for your business will make the best first impression on your target market, so it is important to plan carefully. Thankfully, you don’t have to do this alone. Our team of talented branding experts can guide you through this process and support you every step of the way!

As you can see in our Dyno Brand Map, we start by clearly defining your brand vision.  This is the central component of your entire brand. Everything else that happens when building a business revolves around that core center—your brand vision. From there, we move outward. Your brand’s core values, mission, and brand strategy will be determined next.

At this point in time, you might be wondering, But wait, when do I get to do the fun visual stuff?  Unfortunately, one of the most common mistakes people make when “branding” their business is to jump to the visual components of branding without truly understanding what their brand is all about. We won’t let this happen to you.

Leveling Up

There are several foundational elements that have to be in place in order for your brand to move onto the next level of the professional branding process. Here is a breakdown of those exact levels for your reference.

LEVEL 1

  • Brand Vision

LEVEL 2

  • Brand Strategy

LEVEL 3

  • Values
  • Mission

LEVEL 4 

  • Brand Story
  • Visual Strategy

LEVEL 5

  • Logo

LEVEL 6

  • Website
  • Illustration
  • Collateral

LEVEL 7

  • Marketing

LEVEL 8

  • Content Writing
  • Copywriting

LEVEL 9

  • Social Media
  • Blog
  • Advertising
  • SEO
  • Email

Once your brand’s foundation is established (Levels 1-4), you can begin planning ahead to create professional logo designs, selecting eye-catching colors and fonts for visual appeal, and determining the tone of voice that is most appropriate for communicating with customers. With a good understanding of professional branding principles, you will be able to create an identity that aligns with company objectives and conveys the right message.

Important Tip: Everything your brand does should 100% support your brand vision, mission, and values. If it doesn’t, it won’t work.
