Four Strategic Principles To Develop Your Corporate Identity
What does your brand say about your company?
Corporate identity leverages response externally, with your customers and business partners, but also with your employees. Is your corporate identity strongly built?
At Symbicore, brand identity is the starting point of all businesses. Whether our partners ask it or not, we deeply look at their keystone first, brand identity, and then we start planning their business development.
Key principles of a successful branding strategy
Your identity is the best asset to be shared with others and it only comes into life when a culture has born around it. By extending your philosophy to your customers, partners and employees, you will be also able to know who you are and where are you heading for as a business.
How to influence perception positively and build brand identity? Our design experts have created an identity suite based on four principles for a successful branding strategy:
- Be different: your business needs an authentic reason for being to make a bond and be preferred.
- Be significant: your brand need to create a strong connection and understand your audience needs.
- Be credible: coherence in what you say, do and make others experience.
- Be valuable: the reputation for both external and internal audiences is the key to success in building strong experiences and lasting perceptions.
All these four principles play a significant role to set the starting point and develop your brand identity to its best. With proper planning, maintenance and continuous evaluation your business will get recognition and appreciation both inside and outside the organization.
Symbicore works around those principles to build a consistent identity for you, including structural, cultural and strategic features.

Effective Facebook Page Likes
ARTICLE SOURCE: jonloomer.com
While not everyone agrees, I still firmly believe that building Effective Facebook Page Likes is as important as it’s ever been. As a result, I keep a Page Likes campaign constantly running. I was going through my regular Page Like campaign maintenance when it occurred to me that I should share this exercise as an example of ways that you might target. I’ve been tweaking and optimizing for years now, and it’s a tried and true process that works for me. Before I get to the groups I target, I thought it would be helpful to share how I organize these different target group. I create a different ad set for each audience (which is actually what Facebook recommends), and then each ad set consists of image and copy variations that will reach that group of users. Since I target eight groups of people (those groups are listed below), I end up with eight ad sets that all fall within a Page Likes campaign. When I launch the campaign, I vary the budgets based on the size of the audience (audiences with under 10,000 people, for example, will have a budget of $5/day). But this will be adjusted as I see what does and doesn’t work.
