Why A

Brand Audit

Matters

The word “audit” has such a negative connotation doesn’t it? The first thing most people think of when they hear the word “audit” is the IRS. Negative word association for sure!

But did you know that the definition of the word audit is “an official inspection of…” or “a systematic review or assessment of something.”

The most valuable brands in the world have achieved their position not just through implementing an initially strong branding strategy but also by monitoring changes in customer perceptions over time, and being strategically receptive to those changes.

Letting your brand go without periodic brand audits can often lead to missed messages and opportunities when it comes to reaching and engaging your ideal customers.

WHAT IS A BRAND AUDIT?

brand audit is taking an in-depth analysis of all the touchpoints between your brand and your customers. Our team looks at this information as Insights into who you truly are as a company, a 360 perspective if you will.

Effort should be given to measure and quantify the impact of the brand on customers, their decision, and the company’s financial performance.

Because branding is a strategic point of view, not just a set of activities, a brand audit should be utilized as a key tool for creating and maintaining a competitive advantage.
