500% more leads. 35% less marketing spend.
More than a logo or tagline, a brand is the very personification of a company — the product or service combined with a promise. Brand essence, which should be defined in less than six words, specifies the primary values that permeate all aspects of marketing communications, defines the personality and anchors the tone and rhythm of all communications.
At HexaGroup, we know that marketing begins with branding. Our brand development process allows us to systematically gather company information and creatively define what is unique about your business.
Our Branding Process
HexaGroup follows an extensive and complete branding process that can be implemented from start to finish or used to accommodate a client's need based on where they are in the process. Offering full flexibility, our process can be adapted to a product or service's level of maturity and can also be tailored to fit a client's budget.
With HexaGroup's branding services, our clients receive the benefit of focused, expert planning across a range of creative mediums while enjoying the cost advantages of being able to implement only the creative services needed.
Our branding process begins with research. We conduct an internal marketing audit among key stakeholders to truly understand your company, product, channels, competition and buyers. This information helps to define the essence of your brand, create a brand model and establish brand identity.
