Some Critical Branding Principles for IPOs

  1. As the IPO market is saturated, the brand needs to be even more powerful, unique and interesting to investors. A company’s brand needs to stand out to create a level of excitement and enthusiasm.
  2. A brand promise is what drives a customer to choose one product or service over another. Customers do not choose a product or service because they like the graphic element of the logo, but rather because the brand persona and promise speaks to them in a way that creates a relationship
  3. The market is looking for transparency. Investors blindly accepting promises or claims based on nothing more than hype rather than real performance is no more the case. Banks need a strong brand to work with.
  4. The launch of a new service or product within the brand franchise can take the volume up. A strong brand can continue to build momentum for the company during the quiet period.
  5. A strong brand adds a rich dimension to the IPO story, beyond the financial fundamentals. It can provide the opportunity to deliver a clear message that goes beyond the functional attributes to elicit an emotional connection.

There are currently many companies in the IPO pipeline, which means that it will be much harder for companies to get the attention and ultimately the public financing they need.
