BRAND PERSONALITY

When customers interact with a brand, “who” are they interacting with? If the brand were a person, what sort of person would it be? Excited and friendly or sophisticated and reserved? The personality of a brand relates directly to the sort of person your brand is trying to cater to, and the sort of person they expect the brand to be. A luxury car brand would have a very different personality than a late-night cookie delivery service. That’s because they’re catering to different people with different preferences, and these markets have certain expectations for the types of “people” these brands should be.

BRAND VOICE

Related to a brand’s personality is its voice. If it were a person, given its personality, what sort of things might it say? This is extremely important for marketing purposes, where the goal is to communicate clearly and consistently with consumers. Just like a character in a movie, the things a brand says in its ads, on its website, and anywhere else it shares messages, its voice needs to be consistent. No one would believe the authenticity of a character that seemed to flip between voices throughout scenes, saying things that are inconsistent with things it said in the past. Likewise, a brand’s voice needs to feel appropriate to its personality and remain constant over time. Otherwise, consumers will have a difficult time believing it and connecting with it.

BRAND VALUES

Like a person, a company can stand for things. It can value certain ideals. These company values translate directly to brand values and contribute to a brand identity. According to Harvard Business Review, 64% of people that say they have a relationship with a given brand give shared values as the main driver of the relationship. People want to know that the companies they give money to use that money in ways they would support, so defining your brand values is an important part of brand identity.

BRAND MISSION

A brand’s mission is related to its values. What a company does is fairly obvious to the consumer. Why it chooses to do this isn’t. A brand’s mission gives the consumer context for the products and services it offers. It helps them fit the brand into its competitive landscape and gives them reasons why they should support it over some other brand. This is why you see a lot of companies today wrapping social awareness into their brand identities. It’s important to them that consumers understand they aren’t just doing what they do for the money but also because they want to affect some sort of good in the world. A brand’s mission “humanizes” them.

BRAND IDENTITY

When customers engage with a brand, they're essentially interacting with a persona. Imagine the brand as a person: would it exude excitement and warmth, or embody sophistication and restraint? The personality of a brand directly reflects the audience it serves and their expectations. For instance, a luxury car brand would present itself differently from a late-night cookie delivery service, catering to distinct preferences and market demands.

BRAND TONE

Aligned with a brand's personality is its tone. If the brand were a person, what language and expressions would it use, given its personality? This consistency is paramount in marketing, where clear and cohesive communication with consumers is the goal. Just as inconsistent character traits in a movie would disrupt believability, a brand's voice must resonate with its personality and remain steadfast over time to foster genuine connections with consumers.

BRAND PRINCIPLES

Similar to individuals, companies espouse values and principles. These corporate values translate directly into brand values, shaping its identity. According to Harvard Business Review, 64% of consumers cite shared values as the primary driver of their relationship with a brand. Consumers want assurance that their support aligns with their own ideals, underscoring the significance of defining brand values within its identity.

BRAND PURPOSE

A brand's purpose is intertwined with its values. While consumers can easily discern what a company offers, the rationale behind its choices is less apparent. A brand's purpose provides context for its products and services, positioning it within the competitive landscape and offering consumers compelling reasons to support it. Many companies integrate social consciousness into their brand identities, emphasizing their desire to effect positive change. A brand's purpose humanizes its endeavors, fostering deeper connections with consumers.
