“I am having trouble attracting customers to my business.
Why is this happening?” 

It could be because your brand identity and messaging aren’t effectively communicating your brand benefits.

Go back and make sure that you have a clear and compelling benefits. They should clearly communicate the value that your business provides to customers, and should differentiate you from your competitors. If you’re having trouble attracting customers, it’s possible that your value proposition isn’t clear or compelling enough, or you are not communicating effectively in your visuals.

Take the time to refine your messaging and make sure that your customers understand why they should choose your business over others in your industry and then look at ways you can create an impact communicating this in your visual content.


“My business is losing customers to my competitors.
What can I do to stop it?

I am sorry this is happening to you. I understand how frustrating this must be. This could be down to your brand identity and messaging. In today’s competitive market, it’s more important than ever to have a strong and differentiated brand.

Ask yourself what unique value or benefit(s) can you offer your customers that they can’t get elsewhere? Once you’ve identified your differential, make sure to incorporate it into your messaging and visual branding to ensure that you stand out amongst industry competitors.


“How can I create a brand identity that showcases my worth and attract customers at a higher cost level?”

This is an exciting question. You will need to focus on creating a strong and consistent brand identity that communicates the value and quality of your services.

This could include investing in high-quality branding elements such as a professionally designed logo, website, and marketing materials, as well as emphasising the benefits of your services in your messaging.

You may also want to consider targeting your marketing efforts towards customers who are willing to pay for quality and emphasising the savings that they can get by choosing your services over competitors who charge higher prices.

By creating a strong and consistent brand identity that communicates the value of your services, you can attract customers who are willing to pay for quality and differentiate yourself from competitors. Whatever you decide to do you will need to put a plan in place.


“I am struggling to retain customers and build loyalty.
What am I doing wrong?

We would need to have a chat to see what you are doing now. You may not be doing anything wrong, you may just need a different approach.

I will take a guess and say that it could be because your brand identity and messaging aren’t effectively working together. I would suggest that you sit down with someone else (not in your business) and look at your process from beginning to end. Doing this will provide you an external perspective and highlight any issues that you don’t see from inside the brand. I think this would be extremely beneficial starting point for you.



We all have branding problems at some time or another, but the key takeaway is to remember that not all problems are marketing problems. Always look at the brand foundations first and make sure that they are correct before looking at marketing.

Your focus should be on building a strong and consistent brand identity that communicates your benefits and resonates with your target audience. By doing this, you can establish your brand as a leader in your industry and attract and retain loyal customers who recognise and appreciate the value of your products and services.
