How branding processes save time and streamline your brand

The cliché “time is money” didn’t occur by accident. If there is a lack of brand control in your company, handling your brand will quickly become a time thief. A time thief that drains your marketing budget and harms your brand.

With a proper Brand Management solution, it is easy to streamline your brand related tasks and save valuable time.

This is how you rationalize your marketing budget and workday with proper online branding processes. 

Make sure your brand assets and files are in one place

A factor that consumes unnecessary time is when brand assets and files are spread all over the place. When the assets are also being used incorrectly, this adds to time wasted. A variety of files are stored in different computers or hard drives belonging to the designers, sent in numerous emails and disappear in inboxes. Or worst case, you don’t know where your assets and files are. A survey shows that marketers in average look for assets 16 times a day, 35% of the time without any luck.

This steals valuable time. Time is spent looking for files and, in the end, you’re colleagues get tired of searching and creating their own assets instead – without following your brand identity guidelines.

Make sure your company invests in a solution where everything is stored in one place. In doing so, you avoid outdated material in circulation and the unnecessary time consumption related to this. Also, you can rest assured that all assets are aligned with your brand identity guidelines. An online solution not only contributes to saving time, you also have more time for value-adding tasks that strengthens your brand successfully.

An updated brand is a successful brand

In the worst case, this damages your brand reputation and it will cost you time and money. Campaigns must be withdrawn because they were not on brand, uncertainty increases among your colleagues on what can and cannot be used, unnecessary time is spent fixing, and the list goes on. You probably recognize and have experienced similar circumstances?
