As a top brand agency in Singapore, we are here to help you tell your unique story and share it with the rest of the world.
From internalising the brand purpose, crafting and strengthening the brand narrative, to developing the brand assets and outward expressions, and finally broadcasting out to the market, we are with you every step of the way.
Your brand is the premium that your customers pay, for the perceived differentiated value that they can get from you versus your competitors.
Branding is therefore the process to achieve that desired premium. It's quite as simple as that.
Yes, branding need not be complicated, but many creative and marketing agencies in the market try to make it sound as it is, so that they can sell you solutions that you don't need, to generate outcomes that does not matter to your bottomline.
Your logo, your website, the marketing brochures, the business cards and other marketing and design collaterals, make up the expressions of your brand, but they do not define it.
But to ensure that these brand expressions communicate the correct message to your customers, they have to be aligned to the brand narrative, which is derived from your brand purpose.
Essentially, your brand purpose is to answer the question: "why does your brand exist?".
An age-old concept made popular by Simon Sinek's TED talk a number of years back, all brands at the most fundamental level seek to answer this question that justifies their existence in the market.
Because at the end of the day, if you don't have a valid or strong enough reason for your brand to exist in the market, the market won't bother thinking you do either.
Unfortunately, many businesses - perhaps including yours - haven't really thought about this in-depth, usually being too preoccupied with the grind of day-to-day business operations.
Nevertheless, its importance and signifcane in building a strong brand cannot be overstated.
Branding is a cumulative process that when done right, gives long-lasting rewards to your business for many years to come.
At the end of the day, you are running a business and a business needs to generate revenue.
If so, branding is the most cost-effective strategy over the long term to create top line for your business.
A strong brand position is the best way to stand out among your competitors and occupy a space in your customers' minds.
So when the time comes for the customers to buy, they are more likely to pick your products or services over that of the competition's.
When your brand has a clear voice and position in the market, it is looked upon as an credible source of information. This creates authority and trustworthiness in your customers' minds.
As an expert of your trade or industry, you get to command and lead the narrative, and your competitors have no choice but to react to your moves, distracted away from their own strategies in the process.
You will be at the driver seat and the one dictating the direction of the convesation. That is a powerful position for any brand to be in.
A clear brand narrative creates fandom and a strong following of customers and partners who believe in your cause and pursue the same ideals as your brand does.
That's why Apple loyalists queued early and camped out all night outside retail outlets whenever a new iPhone model is released. That's why Marvel movies featuring obscure characters such as a racoon and a talking tree can become automatic box office hits.
An adored brand is a profitable brand. It is the goal of any business to amass a strong and loyal following of customers, who will always buy without question and out of their own initiatives promote the good word about your business to their loved ones, family and friends.
Branding is what turns your business from a normal seller of goods and services into a champion of dreams.
You probably know that for your business to succeed, you need good people and good teams.
You probably also know that talent acquisition and retention is a challenge facing all companies in our volatile economies today.
Here's the good news:
Everyone loves a winner and everyone loves following a strong brand.
Therefore, you will find it much easier to recruit top talents to join your cause when your brand position in the market is established and highly defined.
In business, nothing matters more than speed.
So while you can try to work on your branding in-house, juggling a myriad of developmental work and operational duties at the same time, chances are you won't have the time to get around to it.
And by the time you do, your competitors would have moved further ahead, which means you need to spend even more time, money and resources just to play catch up.
If you're serious about winning customers over and dominating your market, you simply can't afford to wait till you have the time and bandwidth to do it yourself.
This is where a brand agency can come in and take care of the necessary brand development work for you, so that you can focus on other parts of your business.
By engaging a branding agency, you also gain access to the following advantages and benefits that would be otherwise tedious, time-consuming, or too expensive to acquire on your own.
A brand agency lives and breathes everything related to branding every single day.
Usually, the agency would have a tried-and-tested approach to crafting a brand narrative regardless the trade or industry, honed from years of professional practice and experience.
And more likely than not, the agency would have worked on a business similar to yours previously and already knows the pitfalls to avoid and shortcuts to take to maximise your gain.
As an external partner to your business, the brand agency has no bias or predisposed perceptions about your business and how it operates.
This means the branding agency has no incentive nor interest to hide hard truths about your business from you.
Also, by looking in from the outside, the brand agency has greater clarity, and is in a much better position to share perspectives and opinions that your internal resources may have failed to notice.
Every aspect of a branding process needs to be tracked and measured, so that you know if your business is heading in the right direction.
But manual monitoring is tedious and resource-intensive, while acquiring software tools for this can be costly.
The good thing is a brand agency would usually have the right tools and resources to do this for you because the agency's costs are spread over multiple clients that it manages.
A good branding agency is likely to be a resourceful one, counting clients, associates and suppliers alike as partners and collaborators in a big extended network of businesses.
Engaging a high calibre branding company in Singapore as your agency potentially opens up your connectivity to other businesses in the country (and beyond) that may well become your customers, or suppliers, or both.
Such access becomes even more valuable when you consider taking your business regional or even international, as some of these connections may just be what you need to bridge the market that you so desire.
There are plenty of creative agencies and digital marketing agencies in Singapore pretending to be a branding company or agency, without actually understanding the differences between brand design, creative design and well, general graphic design.
At Stridec, we are very clear and focused on the factors that drive your brand and what it represents, based on a proprietary methodology that we have designed to help bring out the true voice of your brand.
Instead of simply beautifying the visual expressions of your brand, we help you formulate and fortify an internal core belief system that stays true and aligned into the future that your brand is heading towards.
Ultimately, what we help you develop is brand clarity; a precise understanding of your brand by both internal and external stakeholders so that the right customers and business partners will congregate and converge towards your brand.
Over the years, we have built up a formidable set of capabilities and advantages that are made readily available to any company that chooses to work with us.
Stridec was born an IT company and still possesses a strong technical blend even today.
In fact, because of our technical foundations and expertise in core IT disciplines, we have a competitive advantage that can't be matched by other branding or digital marketing agencies in Singapore.
We are at the same time recognised as a leading Ecommerce and SEO agency, being regularly featured in the media through interviews and thought leadership sharing. Our enablement programmes are also recognised and approved by top government agencies such as Enterprise Singapore.
Stridec is a top ranked SEO agency in Singapore, consistently appearing in the top 3 positions of Google search results for highly competitive keywords such as “seo singapore”, “seo expert singapore” among others.
With internet marketing being a key aspect of any business’ marketing efforts, our experience and achievements can definitely be of value to any client who engages us.
There are creatives agencies in Singapore that can conjure out-of-this-world visuals but fall short on production and execution capabilities - especially on the digital channels - to implement them in a manner that delivers tangible results for your business.
On the flip side, there are also marketing agencies that can do the leg work competently but just don’t possess in their DNA the imagination to create winning ideas that wow the market.
Stridec possesses both the creative and executional capabilities in equal measure, delivering to our clients a complete suite of branding, design and marketing services that are greater than the sum of their parts.
Anyone who says that branding is intangible and cannot be measured doesn’t know the next thing about doing branding work.
Being of commercial intent, any work performed in the name of advancing a brand’s coverage in any given market has to be measured so that analysis can be made to benchmark the ROI and subsequently optimise it.
While branding can sometimes be a fluid subject and an unspoken experience, its impact can - and should - be clearly determined.
A credible branding and marketing agency that knows what it is doing, understands that ultimately the success of a branding exercise is judged by its ability to deliver quantifiable returns for you, the client.
At Stridec, we make sure that all the branding and marketing efforts carried out for your are monitored and tracked diligently.
We follow a simple yet effective process to help our clients achieve branding excellence, as follows.
The first step to solving a problem is to recognise that there is a problem and what the problem is.
Through a deep dive discovery process, we uncover details of your brand’s current position, its strengths and weaknesses, as well as opportunities.
The diagnosis then becomes the basis of how the solutions are formulated.
With the assessment from the brand audit, we then develop the approach and direction of the solution, outlining required actions and efforts to take your brand towards your desired business objectives.
The required brand assets - e.g. identity visuals, literature, website, marketing collaterals, corporate gifts etc - are created, optimised and assembled as called for by the strategy.
Through this development process, the instruments through which your brand message will be spread, come to life.
The best weapons in the world won’t win you any war if they are not used effectively, with accuracy and precision.
In the execution phase, the go-to-marketing efforts are deployed and being constantly tracked and monitored for performance.
The constant feedback and review allows us to adjust the ground tactics whenever required, to ensure that we march towards your branding goals and success as planned.
Branding is highly effective and rewarding, giving your business the longevitiy of returns that other marketing instruments can't.
However, to get it right, a lot of work and discipline is required. It can be simple, but definitely not easy.
If you want to increase your chances of winning, you need to have a competent and reliable Singapore branding agency that perfectly understands what your brand is about, and able to articulate it into an actionable roadmap to success.
