3 Reasons why branding is much like painting a house.

So you might have guessed it from the title, that we may be in the process of painting. Yes!, we got that seven year itch and have started freshening up things on the home front.

This blog item is not very long, but all this painting got us thinking about branding for some reason.

Here are 3 reasons why?


In closing we think the term "change is as good as holiday" is very relevant with our painting project, and so it is with branding to, all we can say is happy branding! and how can we help?

Cheers

Why focusing on a niche is important.

You probably wondering why and how a master of the universe figurine has any anything to do with niching. Well here's the back story and it involves a 9 year old boy (me), He-man (the same, but not the same, I found this one much later) and super glue. Now let me tell that even if you are a master of the universe, a super strong action figure, nothing can prepare you for the power of a 9 year old with super glue.

Still confused, here's the story, I had this exact He-man back in '84 and while I was playing with him the arm broke off, so I grabbed the super glue from my dad's tool box and glued it back but after that the poor arm was stuck in one position forever.

You see I understood what glue does, but in this situation I did not know how to use it effectively, in other words glue it so the arm still moved.

I think the same can be said for the importance of the niching, both as a company and on social media, having that special skill and being able to use effectively for your clients.

3 reasons why it is important:


Finding your niche does take a bit of trial and error, we know this all to well, but once you find it's all systems go.

Plasticourt Court Specialists

New Work in Progress Plasticourt Brand Identity

We are currently busy with a brand refinement for Plasticourt and we have to say we are grateful to have had a great starting point. The original logo was good, we just felt a more simpler form would make it more accessible.

Watch this space for their new website in progress.
