Discovering and Creating The Emotional Impact of Your Brand

Discovering and Creating The Emotional Impact of Your Brand

branding Aug 17, 2023

Before you get started building your brand, it's important to understand what branding is (and what it's not!) and how it fits into the context of your business. 

A brand is the promise of an experience that's consistently delivered everywhere your business shows up.

If you’re a coach, healer, or online expert we need to take this concept of branding a step further because you’re not just building a brand; you’re building a personal brand. This means you need to create a brand experience based on your identity—your personality, values, point of view, passions – and how you want people to feel around you. 

Today, we’re diving deep into the emotional chords of branding. If you’ve ever wondered why you just feel drawn to certain brands and how you can create this feeling in your own brand, then this blog is for you.

The Heartbeat of Your Brand

Branding is more than just a pretty logo or a catchy tagline. At its core, branding is about how you make people feel. It's the secret language that speaks directly to the hearts of your potential clients, even before they read a word about what you offer.

Does your brand make people feel peaceful and calm or does it invoke a sense of rebellion?

Does it inspire your audience to change the world, or does it hit closer to home and make someone want to transform their own life?

Your ability to spark an emotional response is directly related to your selling potential.

Ask yourself how you want people to feel when they encounter your brand – safe, empowered, challenged, something else? Then, flip the coin and ask how you don’t want them to feel. From there, you can carry those elements through other aspects of your foundational and visual branding.

Discovering Your Brand's Emotional Impact

All of us have a beautiful tapestry of emotions within us. And guess what? These emotions are subconsciously triggered every single day by things around us, including brands. 

As women entrepreneurs, understanding this emotional landscape and how your brand fits into it can be the game-changer.

To get started, here are some things to consider about your brand:

  • Does my brand exude calmness or does it ignite a spark of revolution?
  • Does it motivate someone to change the world, or is it a heartfelt call to personal transformation?

Your potential client's emotional connection with your brand is like the key to a magical door. Behind this door lies trust, loyalty, and yes, sales!

Feelings First, Logic Second

Did you know that a whopping 95% of purchasing decisions (and actually, all other decisions in our lives) are powered by emotions? It might come as a surprise, especially in a world that often champions logic. But, neuroscientists have discovered that without emotions, our decision-making abilities are almost non-existent. Imagine that!

What this means for you, is that while it's essential to showcase what your service or product is, it's even more crucial to communicate how it will make your client feel.

Instead of just saying, "My program will teach you how to market your business", paint a vivid picture. Say, "My program will empower you with marketing skills, making you feel confident and unstoppable in your business journey."

You need to speak to your clients on a deeper, heart level that meets them where they are and shows them that where they want to go is possible with your help.

Crafting Your Brand's Emotional Blueprint

Alright, now that we've established the importance of emotions in branding, where do you begin when discovering and creating the emotional impact of your own brand?

Reflect and Define: Begin with introspection. Connect with the essence of your business. What's the central emotion or feeling you wish to convey?

Tailor Your Messaging: Once you've identified the emotional impact, weave it into every piece of content. From your website to your social media, let that emotion shine through everything you do.

Stay Authentic: Remember, the most impactful brands are those that are genuine. So, while it's okay to draw inspiration from elsewhere, ensure your branding truthfully represents YOU.

Engage and Connect: Interact with your audience. Understand their emotional triggers and needs. It's a two-way street. Listen, adapt, and grow.
