BRAND STRATEGY & GUIDELINES AGENCY
WE BRING BRANDS TO LIFE
MAKE SURE YOUR BUSINESS IS NOTICED IN THE MARKET BY HAVING A STRONG BRAND IMAGE & STRATEGY
If you’re considering creating a new brand or redeveloping an existing brand then Streets Marketing can help you formulate a Brand Strategy and a Brand Image for your business.
A brand strategy provides your business with a route map to success. It answers the big questions: who, where, why and what.
Having a powerful brand will create awareness, customer engagement, and sales for your business.
A brand communicates your USP – unique sales proposition – what makes it different – which is how you make your brand stand out from the competition.
THE FEEL FACTOR
Branding is how you make your customers feel about themselves and their decisions when they are interacting with your brand. It’s why customers shop at store A vs. store B even if the price or product might be the same, or not that much different.
BRAND DEVELOPMENT EQUALS SUCCESS
Developing a strong, authentic brand and delivering it consistently is the foundation upon which every successful business is built. Streets can help you lay that first stone. We’ll help uncover what makes you special, differentiates you from the competition and defines who you are and what you want to be, and what your target audience wants you to be. The development of your brand will be essential to consistently delivering the right message to the right people to create the right reaction.
Here at Streets Marketing Agency, we understand the importance of branding and its value to your customers and business. We create bespoke Brand Strategies, Brand Image & Guidelines Documents for your business. Streets offer a Brand Development Consultancy Service and Brand Workshops.

BRANDING IS ALL ABOUT YOUR CUSTOMERS
Branding is about the promise of a distinct, memorable experience for your customers. It’s about telling your customers what you do for them and how you are different in the market; it’s about creating an expectation and delivering it consistently every time your customers come into contact with your brand at every customer touchpoint platform – print, digital and audio – including; business cards, website, shop window, sales and promotional materials, your office, vehicle graphics, packaging, advertising campaigns, social media platforms, billboard, audio, mailings, merchandise, exhibitions, your business, and even the way you answer the phone.
BRANDING WILL CREATE DESIRE WITH YOUR CUSTOMERS
WHY DOES MY BUSINESS NEED A BRAND STRATEGY AND IDENTITY?
- It will ensure your customers recognise you in the busy market-place
- It will give your customers a unique experience, create awareness and engagement
- It will help your business stand out from your competitors
- It will position and differentiate you in the market
- It will give your business a voice so you can spread your message and engage with your prospects and customers
- It will add value to the business and product
A brand is a set of associations that a person makes with a product or service. As a business you have little control over Brand associations – this is what your customers think and associate with your brand.
To illustrate the idea, let’s take one of the best-known products, or Brands, in the world, Coca-Cola.
Although essentially just a soft drinks product, Coca-Cola the drink is eclipsed by the sheer might of Coca-Cola the Brand. This phenomenon is best summed up by the following quote from a Coca-Cola executive:
“If Coca-Cola were to lose all of its product-related assets in a disaster, the company would survive. By contrast, if all consumers were to have a sudden lapse of memory and forget everything related to Coca-Cola, the company would go out of business.”
