How to Assess Your Corporate Brand in the New Year

A new year means new opportunities. 

The New Year is a time for reflection and rediscovery. Almost everyone puts together a New Year’s resolution on how they can improve themselves for the next 12 months. Here at Paragraphs, we believe brands can improve themselves every day. The more a brand analyzes itself, the more opportunity it has to grow. Whatever your plans are for 2017, here are a few ways to improve your B2B marketing and your brand.

Address the Bad

A corporate brand is based upon customer and public perceptions. Which means it’s always necessary to stay in tune with your customers’ current concerns. This often means listening to their complaints and suggestions and responding to them. Look to see if there are any recurring problems your brand is facing. Don’t be so responsive that your brand solely panders to clients, but remember that they come first. If you take their best interests to heart, they will trust you more, even when you decide to take chances.

Nurture the Good

Your  New Year’s resolution shouldn’t just focus on your shortcomings. It should also pay attention to what your company is excelling in. Look at where your brand performs best and ask yourself two questions: why this, and what does it need to be sustained? After you figure out why it is growing, then think of how to nurture it. Be careful not to alter it too much (if it isn’t broke, don’t fix it). Just enhance it so your customers get more of what they like.

Stick to Your Roots

In the bustle of business and strategic concerns, we can often stray from our initial plans for our brand. But a new year is a great opportunity to go back to whatever foundations we might have lost along the way. A new start is a great opportunity to announce to the world that your corporate brand is being renewed. It gives your customers something to look forward to for the year, and may even wake up potential customers noticing a fresh perspective on what you have to offer.
