Regardless of whether it is single-brand or multi-brand retail, a strong Retail Brand requires a comprehensive understanding and appreciation.
The challenge of modern retail branding strategies is primarily around maintaining consistency of positioning and communication across all possible touch points. Touchpoints have proliferated from mere physical stores to online buying channels available on multiple platforms and devices (desktops, laptops, tablets, and smartphones).
Your Retail Brand is what defines you. It informs others about what you provide, how you provide it and how serious you are about what you provide. It invokes perceptions and expectations about the attributes of your organization and the quality of your product or service.
Something so far-reaching needs to be reinforced by a combination of experience, professionalism, and talent to ensure that your brand communicates and lasts.
Identity and branding are not just for big-business corporate solutions. Inventiv Designs can help any business, no matter the size or budget, cultivate a brand. Our goal is to help you strengthen and deliver your core message in a way that keeps you competitive, shows your customers what makes you unique and makes you memorable.
RockSolid Floors Retail Branding all started with the idea of taking a commercial floor coating and bringing it to a retail market. In 2008 Inventiv Designs was approached by the owner and founder Patrick Ilfrey to help take his vision of RockSolid Floors to market. It started with the logo and grew into a national brand. Inventiv Designs had the privilege of creating and managing this brand until 2014 when Rust-Oleum purchased the company.
Williams Architectural Products
Williams Architectural Products manufactures a line of aluminum railing systems currently available through Menards.
Our contract with Williams was to create a line of training videos utilizing green screen. We brought in Gary Daley from New Jerseys Americas Deck Builder. The Series was a huge success and dramatically reduces customer service calls.
Menards Decided to take Williams in as a stocking dealer so now we had to go back and look at revamping the Packaging, Website, Marketing, Indoor displays, and create Instructional Videos.
Here’s the simplest way we here at Inventiv Designs define brand: Branding is about the promise of a distinct, memorable experience. It’s about creating an expectation and delivering it consistently every time anyone comes into contact with your brand whether it’s the way you answer the phone, how your website functions to your customer service process, how your office looks or how your product/service performs. It’s how you make your customers feel about themselves and their decisions when they interact with your brand. It’s why someone shops at store A versus store B, even if the prices or products might not be that much different.
A strong, authentic brand is the foundation upon which every successful business is built. We can help you lay that first stone. We’ll help uncover what makes your organization special and what differentiates you from the competition. We can help you define who you are, what you want to be and what your target audience wants you to be. Just as important, we will help you to consistently deliver the right message to the right people to create just the right reaction.
