Fundamentals of Improving your Foundation

The first step to business success in any industry is a solid foundation. Take some time to think about how you can improve the core of your fashion brand. Keep these questions in mind:

  • “What makes your fashion brand different from others?”
  • “What is your fashion brand’s purpose?”
  • “What are your core values and how do you implement them?”

After brainstorming your answers, analyze whether or not these reflect your current mission statement or if it’s time for an update. Along with that you want to visually show off your brand’s unique qualities and how they benefit your target market and beyond. Also, from social media channels to website blogs, using an expressive brand voice can help you efficiently rebrand without taking away from your company's core values.

Using Data to Understand your Target Audience

Using insights and analytics will help you better understand your target audience and better adhere to their wants and needs. Decisions supported by research can help you attract new customers and provide for existing customers in such a way that they keep coming back. Customer retention data plays a key role in evaluating what works and what doesn’t. It’s absolutely acceptable to have multiple target markets - the more the merrier! By refining each target audience based on demographics, it becomes easier to clearly market to each through strategic planning.

With the help of research, you can also recognize the variance in motivating factors and the purchasing power of each audience bracket. For example, we’re in a period where sustainability is progressing and becoming more favorable to the general public. By adding manufacturing certifications to your production process, you could increase your company’s attractiveness to both customer segments that care about quality and ones that care about conscientious sourcing and the environment.

Brand Personality and Awareness: Consistency Is Key

Once you’ve taken the time to reform both the brand’s foundation and target audience, it’s important to find a unique approach to keep consistency in mind at all times. Finding a balance between creating new content but also incorporating existing styles and designs is the key to success. When communicating, keep your brand’s personality consistent across all channels - both online and offline. Whether it’s casual or professional, high end luxury or athleisure, find your niche market (or markets!) and find ways to effectively express your brand’s tone. The more the target audience is exposed to constant brand elements the easier it is to solidify brand awareness, recognition and appreciation.

By focusing on the foundation, relying on the target market and keeping consistency in mind, you can successfully build your brand.
