Colgate and Crest. Starbucks and Caribou. Coke and Pepsi. When we think of these brands, you most likely can see their logo or their brand colors. And you probably have feelings or opinions about them, or even extreme loyalty to one over the other. This knowledge and connection is referred to as brand equity.
Brand equity is a powerful thing to possess. Not only does it make a notably positive impact on ROI, companies with brand equity often see more (and higher) sales without having to spend as much on marketing. One of the key elements of building brand equity: trust.
In today’s marketing world, trust is key. According to the 2019 Gartner Brand Trust Survey, “81% of customers refuse to do business with or buy from a brand that they don’t trust.” With so many options out there, building trust helps you stay ahead of your competitors and create long-lasting brand loyalty.
Okay, so you know that you want to build your storytelling with in-store signage. What’s the next step? Investing in brand equity signs is a great way to elevate your brand, draw attention to your product, and communicate your unique story and position while people are shopping.
