Fight the Normal Brand Direction

There are many Alaska companies that play into the weather and terrain of Alaska when putting together their brand.Images of mountains, ice, water, trees, and other natural touches can be found in many, or even most, Alaska branding. It doesn’t mean you can’t use these motifs, but make them your own with uncommon colors, textures, or accents that take your brand from ordinary to extraordinary.

Your Message is Already Unique, Ensure Your Brand is

Don’t forget, your business is already unique by itself. Your brand should reflect your own unique vision and message, meaning it will have its own unique feel without too much effort!Play into the things you like and that speak to the audience you’re targeting.

Use Different Marketing Tools

Once you have figured out the way you want to make your Alaska brand unique, use different or unusual marketing tools.For example, typical bottled water companies might use water bottles to advertise their company. What about ice cube trays? Key chains are common advertising but those with fun and custom shapes or bangles are usually the ones that end up on everyday key rings.Some of the different tools may be more expensive since they aren’t standard but the cost is worth it if you are constantly getting word of mouth advertising from your clients.

Make sure to pick something about your business that makes it the most unique and different and play those differences up! Your customers will appreciate the efforts!

Social Media Management

Everyone has Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, or Flickr. Many people have multiples if not all, but maintaining all of these accounts on your own for your business is a full time job!Updating them on a monthly basis means your most important events, specials, and information gets sent to your clients in the manner that they are more likely to see.
Not everyone is going to see the ad in the paper or get a paper flyer, but if they have liked you on Facebook, they will see the update you post about an upcoming event. It’s the simplest and fastest way to reach your existing audience with information you want to relay.
Consider a Brand Management Package for your start-up or small business to ensure you reach your target audience while giving your more time to focus on products and services.

Knowing your market and your business will help determine the most effective design for your Anchorage business.

How Do I Get Started?

Everything starts with an idea. What do you want to tell your clients about your Anchorage business? Jot down a few ideas and key phrases. Sketch something if you’re artistically inclined. Gather color ideas in fabrics or paint swatches, look at other web designs that you like and see if you can explain why you like them. Voicing your idea is one of the hardest things about design- figuring out how to express WHY you like something is incredibly useful in getting your design to look the way you want!

A designer will help get the idea you have in your head onto paper (and the web!) as a real, tangible vision with a plan.
