What is a Brand?
A brand is a set of features that help distinguish your hotel business from another.
Typically, a brand comprises of a name, tagline, logo or symbol, design, brand voice, and more.
A brand is how people see and perceive your business. It’s the experience a customer undergoes while interacting with your property — as a booker, a guest, a social media follower, or just a passerby.
A brand has to be consistent, easily distinguishable, unique, and special to connect to your guests. They should have an image or idea in mind while thinking about you!
The Branding Process
If you haven’t decided on a name yet, no problem: We’ll sit down as a team and discuss your concept to shortlist a few suitable names, each with a brand story and rationale behind it.
The next step is to turn the name into detailed logo concepts, which focus on brand values, identity, tone of voice, and vision.
Last but not least, having put your brand image in place, we assist you with the launch of your hotel. We’ll plan everything well in advance!
