The importance of consistency.

Have you ever been watching a television commercial and automatically knew what company it was for? It’s fascinating that just by the music, the graphics and the taglines, we can instantly say to ourselves “Hey, I know this a Pepsi commercial.” There’s no secret as to why certain brands can convince an audience that the style of theirs is exclusive to their brand. It simply just has to do with consistency.

Your brand will feel more dependable.

This means you need to be consistent in all areas of your brand. If your social media messaging is lively and energetic, but your packaging is boring, this may leave consumers feeling confused and questionable. When working with someone, wouldn’t you rather work with someone who is reliable instead of unpredictable? Imagine if the business you wanted to work with had an inconsistent appearance, this might have you thinking twice since you wouldn’t know what to expect from them. Consumers notice these things!

Build your consumers’ trust.

For example, let’s take the store Target. Have you ever known anyone to go on the web and search reviews just for the store Target? No, didn’t think so. Target has done a phenomenal job over the years helping their consumers get to know their brand on a personal level. It is a long-lived concept that purchasing is more of an emotional decision than a practical one. Make your consumers feel like they know your brand. Brand consistency is part of building trust.

Developing a similar look for your brand across your website, all social media channels and your product packaging will make consumers feel more comfortable and secure with your brand. It will also make them more likely to purchase from you again and again.

Whether you are just starting out or you’ve been around for a while, the consistency should always be shown through your campaigns, interior spaces, messaging, logos and anything else that represents your brand. Giving consumers a dependable experience across all your channels of communication works along the same lines as always putting out a dependable product. Be consistent, it will allow your consumer to get to know you, trust you and purchase your products from you.
