The Best Branding and Brand Design Agencies in Singapore

Share

Apple, Nike, Microsoft, Nestle, Coca Cola, Starbucks, Google and so many others, these are all highly successful household brands we all know. 

Each of them have poured in an immense amount of resources into carefully crafting their brand over time, and if you want to grow your business, you should be paying equally much attention to your brand in today’s world.

What Is Branding?

Branding is, put simply, how your business is thought of in consumers’ minds. It goes beyond your logo, products, services, functions, and benefits into how they see your brand and feel about it.

This brand pyramid makes up the essential stages of brand-building, starting from salience or simply how aware people are of your brand to the functional performance of your product / services as well as what people imagine when they think of your brand. 

Most businesses stop at this stage but humans are emotional creatures; until you have captured their feelings and good judgments of your brand, your brand wouldn’t resonate with them and make them a loyal customer.

Just look at the Apple versus Android debate. Most consumers haven’t even tried the other side’s offering to make a logical selection but since they resonate so much with their chosen brand, they term themselves an “Apple user” or “Android user” with little to no switching intent.

Why Is Branding Critical?

Now you might be wondering, isn't it enough to have a great product or service? Sure, that’s great except we are living in a world dominated by great imitators. 

Whether it’s a physical product or service, you can bet that your success can be picked up by another business and quickly replicated unless you have certain technological patents or proprietary knowledge. 

Even then, we all know there are less scrupulous businesses out there which will still violate such restrictions anyway, even huge luxury brands are subject to such imitations and can do very little about them!

Yet the luxury brands still thrive despite imitators, and in fact consumers become even more discerning and aware of the differences between real and imitation goods. Why?

It’s all because of their branding! When you buy luxury brands, you aren’t buying the handbag, accessory or clothes, but the prestige and imagery that comes with that brand.

The power of branding is not just restricted to your customers as well, it even helps your business internally and as an employer. Google, Facebook, Amazon and many large brands are known as great employers because of their branding both on the consumer side and as an employer. 

It’s crucial to note the importance of consistent branding both externally and internally.

Just imagine if Disneyland theme parks, branded as the happiest places on Earth, have poor employee welfare., That will hardly make for a happy experience for their customers as well!

Knowing the importance of branding, however, is only the first step. What can you do from here?

We suggest consulting the experts — here are some of the top Singaporean branding and brand design agencies in no particular order of merit.

Choosing the Right Agency for Your Company

A product or service with a strong brand identity gives many benefits —  from economic ones like customer loyalty, improving your sales and marketing efforts to less tangible ones such as emotional connection, business clarity, consumer recognition and trust. 

However, always remember that your brand is a reflection of the business which in turn is a reflection of the people in it and putting up a false image is unsustainable. So look for what you and your business truly stand for to create an outstanding brand that will stand the test of time.
