If you want to build brand awareness for your event its important you have a strong brand identity.

Your audience should be able to catch a glimpse of your marketing and recognise you instantly.

Keeping your brand consistent is vital

The effects of an inconsistent brand
An inconsistent brand has numerous negative effects on your business, having the basics of a brand identity throughout your collateral can stop you falling into any of these pitfalls and looking:
Unprofessional – having multiple graphics that all look different make your business look unprofessional. If you’re not going to invest in your own business, why would someone else invest in buying your services?
Forgetful – if your branding isn’t strong and doesn’t shout about what your business offers your clients then you won’t be remembered, and your client is more likely to look somewhere else for what they need.
Confusing – does your brand deliver a clear message about what you do and who you do it for? The time for engagement and making an impact is significantly low, especially with social media being at a high, consumers just scroll endlessly, unless something catches their attention. If your branding isn’t clear then you won’t be noticed
