4 Big Ways Professional Branding Improves Your Mindset with Holly Meyer

Holly Meyer Branding

This is a guest blog written by Holly Meyer of Holly Meyer Design. Thanks, Holly!

You decided to trim your own hair because… how hard can that actually be? You think, “This can go one of two ways. Really good or really bad.” (Just me?) Your hairstyle is minuscule in the grand scheme of things, but it does everything for your mindset. You feel on top of the world when you have an excellent hair day, and you feel absolutely miserable whenever you end up cutting one side of your hair slightly more crooked than the other.

Your visual brand has the same effect on your business. When your visual brand looks polished and professional you feel unstoppable and when you piece everything together yourself, despite not having much of a design background, you may find yourself hiding your head in the sand from embarrassment.

Hiring a professional designer is a large investment, so is it worth it to you? Here are four big ways professional branding improves your mindset.

Professional branding ignites your drive

I don’t know about you, but whenever I spend a large amount of money on an investment, whether for my business or not, I want to make sure I get as much use out of that expense as I possibly can. The action of making a purchase motivates me to work harder in order to see a return on that investment. Spending money on professional branding is no exception!

Professional branding gives you validation

There are those milestones where you feel like you “finally” made it. For example, when you buy your first car you may think, “I’m finally an adult!” Or when you buy your first home you say, “Now I really am an adult!” When my clients invest in branding, I often hear, “I finally feel like a legitimate photographer!” or “This has given me so much confidence!”

Professional branding gives you peace of mind

Gone are the days where you feel like you’re shooting in the dark with your DIY design, wondering if you’re “doing it right.” When you find the right professional designer to work with, they will ask you proper questions to uncover your brand mission, your business objectives, and all the details about your dream audience. The end result? A visual brand that is unique, totally you, AND works for your industry.

Professional branding will make you feel proud

Do you ever find yourself apologizing whenever you hand out your business card at a networking event? When you invest in professional branding, you’ll no longer have to say, “Please don’t judge me… I put this together in Microsoft Word last night and my computer printer was low on ink.” Instead, whenever you hand out your professionally designed business cards you’ll hear nothing but rave reviews!

To sum it all up, professional branding is an investment worth making if you need a good boost to your business mindset. When you’re getting ready to take the next step, make sure you find a designer that asks questions to uncover the core of your brand so they can capture your true essence in your visual design.
