When you look at your business you want to make sure that it has personality. You want your consumers to resonate with your brand. Developing a brand personality is the description of the brand expressed in two to four adjectives as if the brand were a person. The brand personality is used to shape the tone of voice for all brand communication, including advertisements, packaging, and more.
The goal of creating a brand personality is for consumers to interact with your brand. You want your consumers to seek out your brand on an emotional level. You want to ask yourself “If your brand suddenly came alive and walked into the room”:
1. What type of person would she/he be?
2. What would she/he say and do?
3. How would she/he say and/or do it?
