Face of the Brand

Your team members define your company. 

Whether you like it or not, your TEAM is the face of your business, which in turn, makes them the face of your brand.  Because of this, put in careful thought towards the public image of your brand and the people behind it. Your company's beliefs or ethics should complement those that you employ, creating the strongest model for your business.

The concept of first impressions is important to keep in mind while developing your business. Understand that your team is the face and perceived brand of your company. Having a strong, willing team is paramount to running a successful business. Your team should care about acquiring new customers or patients and how smoothly the practice runs in conjunction with
their own position. A good business is not something that will fall into place with one person at the heart of the matter–every team member represents a step to the most efficiently run practice.

A well-developed brand should deliver your message clearly, add credibility to who you are in the eyes of the customer, motivate the buyer and create a feeling of loyalty between your brand and the customer. Another way to think of it is as a promise to your customer. The idea behind a brand is not that your company is amongst a list to choose from, but more-so the only one that will provide a solution to their problem.

There are certain questions to ask yourself while creating the brand for your business. First, you must establish your company's mission as well as the benefits of your products and services that outweigh the benefits of your competitors. You meed to determine what your customers or prospective customers initially think of your brand, and what qualities you would like them to associate with you. This kind of brainstorming will have you prepared for your launch day beyond what you had expected, and there's no such thing as being too organized when it comes to fine-tuning your business.
