Your brand is messy.
And – it’s not your fault
The human brain has seven slots of short-term memory (give or take two slots) at any given time.
The job in branding is to grab just ONE slot – and print it to long-term memory.
The biological phenomenon is the reason we can’t remember what we had for lunch last Thursday – or the dozens of billboards we pass.
The brain is just too busy.
Even more reason to keep you branding message – simple.
You can only be known for ONE thing (Maybe two).
IBM – Computers
Starbucks – Coffee
Stanley Steamer – Carpet Cleaning
Although they ALL offer much more.
You are not alone in your field.
Your message needs to hit harder – and faster than your competition.
So, THEY hear it.
ONE message – ONE shot to differentiate.
Audit your logos, messages – everything.
De-clutter your brand – and a clean message will follow.
