Tis’ the season for New Years Resolutions, and we’ve got the tips to kickstart your brand in 2018. The new year represents new opportunities, challenges and goals to achieve. While most resolutions are left undone, we want to challenge you to making this the ultimate business year. This means preparing for your brand growth and ensuring that you’re hitting your goals. In order to get your head in the game, there are a few steps to consider before jumping into 2018. Don’t delay it any further.

Map out your goals

Whether you know exactly what you want to achieve for your brand in 2018, or you’re a bit unsure of your aims, mapping out your goals is a great way of pinpointing exactly what you need to do in order to achieve those goals. For instance, if one of your goals is to get more clients (which, let’s be honest, is everybody’s goals), you need to write down every strategy needed to gain more clients. This could include boosting your marketing campaign with paid advertisement, launching a new product or announcing discount offers on your website. Set a deadline for each goal, and try to avoid overtly vague descriptions. Your best bet is to stick with exact amounts or numbers for each goal, making sure you know when they are reached.

Turn strategies into reality

The next step is to make sure your strategies are set in motion. This means writing up a plan with specific tasks that must be done to reach your goals. Make sure that each task is regularly followed up. Simply writing them down doesn’t mean they are getting done. There might be times where your strategies might require some assistance, depending on your goal. For instance, a PR company can help write a killer press release for your company event, or a web designer can assist with drawing in your online customers.

Get your branding sorted

There’s nothing that sells products as well as a fresh and consistent brand image. Your company needs an identity that customers can relate to and have a genuine interest in. While you might already have an established brand identity, it never hurts to evolve the brand image throughout all aspects including stationery, collateral material, marketing and packaging. Don’t forget about your brand story. Customers want to know about your company history and what makes you different. This story is your unique selling point and it needs to be nurtured.
