Branding With a Purpose 01.07.23

According to recent reports, two-thirds of the people in the workforce believe that it’s important to them to work for a company that has a clear sense of purpose. Additionally, about over half of all customers have decided to completely stop or just reduce the number of purchases from companies that don’t meet the mark on social or environmental issues. That means, for a lot of customers, it’s important for companies to have a clear purpose and a mission that’s going to help the company stand out from the crowd and connect with its customers.

Authenticity

If a company truly wants to brand itself with a specific purpose, it needs to make sure that the purpose it chooses is going reflect on the core values of the business, and the company will also have to reinforce how business operations are contributing toward that purpose through real action, from top to bottom. After all, companies that only state that they have a purpose, but don’t follow through can disconnect from their target audiences, as they are going to be seen as inauthentic. True authenticity comes from companies that are able to support their purpose through action and transparency, being authentic and accountable with what the company stands for, because without those things, the company’s purpose is going to fall flat with the customers, and can even generate confusion or distrust.

Purpose

In the last couple of years, especially since the pandemic, it’s become increasingly important for companies to brand themselves with a solid purpose or company mission that’s going to allow them to connect with the individual purpose of their customers. The core purpose of a company can always evolve from when it’s first established, however, it’s important for companies to choose a specific purpose that is going to be relevant to the company, and help the business provide value for its community, stakeholders, as well as the planet. That’s why more and more companies have started to incorporate a purpose into their existence and business operations. However, this goes far beyond that because companies that have a purpose are able to clearly show and state the core reason why the company exists, and how it can uniquely and positively impact the world around it. When done right, companies will be able to highlight their purpose and further support it through action. However, it’s important for companies to remember that a purpose isn’t just something that businesses get to briefly mention in their marketing or other types of promotional efforts. After all, the purpose should serve as a promise that the company is making to its target audience, to its employees, and all of its stakeholders, which is why it needs to be thoughtful, authentic, and actionable.
