Launching a new product? Don't forget the all important branding

Is now the perfect time to breathe life back into that product idea that got shelved?

Over the past couple of years, many organisations have postponed planned product launch activity due to the logistical restrictions wreaked by COVID-19.

There have been many challenges relating to promotional launch events, face-to-face meetings, trade shows, in-store experiences, delivery and more. The world is slowly but surely opening back up and restrictions are being rolled back across the globe.

Now could just be the perfect time to breathe life back into that product idea that got shelved. And if you do revisit your product idea, branding is going to be more important than ever to reassure customers that your organisation is still around and thriving in a post-COVID world.

The importance of branding

There are so many things for an organisation to think about when launching a new product: testing, timing, price, packaging, product name, promotion and so much more! It is usually a remarkably busy and stressful time for all involved.

In the lead up to a new product launch, we understand that it can be easy to overlook some of the details. But don’t forget that product branding is so important from the outset, because:
  • It can make a memorable first impression on your customers
  • It distinguishes you and your product from competitors
  • It helps create customer loyalty and trust.

When thinking about product branding, it is important to think beyond the product itself. How are you going to market this product and will your marketing strategy involve product photos or videos? For most products, the answer will be yes. Strong, visible product branding will be critical to communicating your branding during the marketing phase.

Timing is also so important

When considering branding for your new product don’t leave it to the last minute! Often, a product branding solution will need to be considered during the concept and development process, so it can be incorporated into the final product design. Leaving it to the end can be difficult for these reasons:

  • It can look like an ‘add-on’ as it often won’t sit seamlessly on your product.
  • It can delay your product launch. Superior product branding can’t be turned around in days. Lead time can often be 3-5 weeks, potentially longer depending on what is needed in terms of materials.

How can LNI help? At LNI, we have a dedicated technical team that can help you to find the right product branding solution during the product concept or development stage. Our team can help you identify the correct materials, processes and product solutions to match your product’s end-use requirements.
