Ensuring that your brand identity that matches your products, appeals to your customer and actually represents your business is supremely important when it comes to marketing and selling your products. If you're looking to make sure that your product can stand out from its competitors, it is absolutely essential that you make the most of the very best in digital labels.
If your products blend in with all the others on a shelf, then it is likely that your offering will be overlooked in favour of a more well known or established brand offering a similar product. When they are on the shelves,particularly in the early days of your business, it doesn't matter how fantastic your product is if you can't convince your potential customers to try it out in the first place!
How Can You Make Your Product Stand Out On The Shelf?
Understand Your Audience And Your Own Brand Identity
Before you begin to truly make your product appeal to your customer, you need to ensure that you understand who you are marketing to. We've lost count of the amount of times that we've seen a product, sometimes even a great product, with a design that just doesn't appeal to the people who would be the most likely to buy it.
Similarly, and perhaps a little more confusingly, we've seen businesses that don't really understand their own brand identity. You're going to have to accept the fact that, particularly early on in your company's lifecycle, you aren't going to be able to appeal to every single demographic. Don't try to be all things to all people and, instead, focus on building a personality for your brand which, if you succeed, you can then build upon and continue to grow and develop.
Do Your Research!
Before you start to design the digital labels for your products, make sure that you've performed some research on your competitors. You might be extremely tempted to, essentially, copy what works for another business but you should always be hesitant of that idea.
Don't Be Afraid To Innovate!
By all means, allow yourself to be influenced, but you need to develop your own brand identity and digital label design. You need to ensure that your brand is sufficiently unique and is capable of standing out from the crowd, without going too far from the mark. Consider your product and your audience above everything else, and ensure that you are designing the label with them in mind.
One of the most rewarding ways to stand out from the crowd is to innovate on ideas that are already in use. Identifying your own USP (unique selling point) and building on it through your packaging and labelling can be the best way to start to develop your own brand identity to attract customers.
Design Digital Labels For Your Customers, And You'll Stand Out From The Crowd!
One of the most important components when it comes to digital labels is clarity. Don't get too concerned with intricate designs if they sacrifice immediate recognisability, which can be extremely important when a customer is performing the weekly shop, or looking for your product specifically.
If you ever change your packaging, make sure that you are moving towards an increasingly clear digital label design to appeal to your customers,and you don't run the risk of alienating existing customers.
