When it comes to skin care branding, most entrepreneurs think about just logos and the brand’s colors. Yet, skin care branding and branding in general is much more than that. It is about the message the branding is sending and the overall impact to the industry and target audience.
When branding a new skin care company, it is about the message which can be communicated through the company mission statement or a slogan for example. It is about the logo itself, the name of the company, colors, product names, packaging look, style, and design. All of these are part of skin care branding.
How does a new company reach desired results through a proper branding process? Below are some points to consider when getting started. Branding experts can significantly improve the process for a new venture. Working with experts can drastically help. Retailers that need help should find an agency or professionals with plenty of industry experience.
Create a clear and well understood brand name.
Company names are very important. They convey a message to the audience just through the name. Many skin care brands are named after the founder (doctors, dermatologists, etc.) or the name is a creative name stating what the brand is about. If a creative name is used, it must be clear and well understood by the audience. Often names end in skincare to make sure the audience knows right away this is a skin care brand.
Use a quality designed logo with the brand name.
Do not get a cheaply created logo for the skin care brand. The consumer by now is accustomed to a level of professionalism and quality within the skin care industry. Skin care logo design should be done by professionals who understand key design elements for logo creation and branding through colors etc. Working with experts again can help avoid costly mistakes with logos.
Pay attention to the skin care packaging for branding.
The packaging is just as much part of branding as any other elements for a brand. When selling skin care or beauty products at a certain price point, the packaging has to match this as well. More costly products must look more costly as well. Skin care packaging is a critical part of skin care branding solutions. Working with experts helps pick the right packaging and design.
Companies and startups that need assistance with branding should work with experts who have plenty of beauty industry experience. Knowing what works, what level of quality is required, and having enough experience is a recipe for success.
