Hello, I’m Jim Glover, That Branding Guy, for Once a Day Marketing™. Today we are discussing the importance of always making your brand look great.

Oklahoma City is running a television campaign that makes their community look fantastic. The visual images in the spot are appealing, exciting and create very positive impressions about their brand. They understand that physical evidence or visual cues are one of 7Ps of Marketing and that powerful imagery build a strong brand in the minds of their target customers.

Are you creating appealing visuals across all aspects of your brand that enhances its stature and likeability similar to Oklahoma City?

Physical evidence relates to everything your customers see about your brand. It includes such aspects as your logo, the design of your website, and the graphics you use in your promotional material. It also relates to the physical appearance of your storefront or office and the clothing styles or uniforms worn by employees.

Even your correspondence with a customer is part of physical evidence. That proposal you prepare to bid on future work should look great as should the invoice sent after completing the project.

Strategically review all visual aspects of your brand and ask yourself if there is a way to enhance the physical appearance. Remember you never have a second chance to make a first impression and what customers see representing your brand sets the tone for future engagement.
