Mission, Vision & Values: The Foundations Of Your Brand
Deliver outstanding creative solutions & help our clients achieve their ambitions.
Use intelligent creativity & implement this as standard for all of our clients.
Be authentic, even if it’s not what the client wants to hear. Treat our clients’ businesses with the respect we’d like them to treat ours & remember “It’ll do” isn’t good enough.
These statements are the foundations of Williams&Crosby as a business. They encompass everything that we are as a team and the work that we do. So much so that we have them printed on the wall in our office! To remind us of the principles that drive us to do the best for our clients every day. This is reflected in the fact that we are often told by clients that they don’t just retain our services for our exceptional creativity, results and honesty. It’s all the things we do above and beyond, the care and support we provide that adds value and makes us stand out.
“It’s the & factor in Williams&Crosby we really appreciate”
It is vital for any business to have a clear idea of their Mission, Vision and Values and its one of the first things we look at when we run branding workshops for clients. It forces self reflection, focus and identifies authenticity and ambition whilst ensuring alignment and ownership throughout the business. These are the building blocks of a strong brand and it’s an exercise worth doing whether you’re at the beginning of your brand journey or you’re already an established business.
Let’s break these ideas down a little further.
Your Mission (should you choose to accept it…)
To construct your business mission statement, consider the following:
- What do you do?
- How do you meet your client’s needs?
- How do you intend to improve your offering?
This should be the overall goal for your business, a clear ambition for the future. It’s a strong statement of intent to drive you forwards towards your goals.
This should be a sort of summary of your business and its culture. The ethos of your team and the experience of interacting with your brand. If a client was to sum up the experience of working with your company, what would you want them to say?
Using these guiding principles, you are well on your way to taking your business from strength to strength. Hopefully this blog will help to give you a good starting point in putting together your own Mission, Vision and Value statements.
