5 Ways to Make Your Brand Stand Out

Companies like Apple, Nike or Disney can put their name or logo on any product and customers will flock to it (then keep coming back for more.) But what if you’re not a Fortune 100 company or a well-known brand? In a crowded marketplace, how do you make your brand stand out?

The good news is, you don’t have to be a company at that caliber to have brand recognition. Here are 5 ways that can help your business rise above others:

  1. Create interesting content. Interesting also means original and sincere. If your content is cliché or too sales driven, or if you attempt to mimic another brand, people won’t have a compelling reason to choose your company over the other brand. Also, be bold in your content. When it comes to making a name for yourself, risk often leads to rewards. 
  2. Know your customers. Ultimately, your brand is what your customers say it is, not what you think it is. Know who your customers are and form a connection with them. That connect is based on trust by meeting their expectations. 
  3. Be good at one thing. Don’t try to be everything to everyone. When you think of In-N-Out, you think of burgers. The Southern California chain does burgers well and they stick to what they do best. In the same manner, know what you do best and be good at it. Your customer will remember you for it. 
  4. Deliver on your promise. Having brand integrity is key to a successful business. This is part of building trust with your customers. Nordstrom promises a no-hassle return policy and the company delivers on this promise every day. Their customers are loyal because they know that if they need to make a return, there will be no questions asked. 
  5. Visibility is key. In marketing, it is said that a customer must see your brand seven times before the customer remembers it. Leverage different opportunities to diversify the visibility of your brand to help with brand recognition. Perhaps you surprise and delight your hotel guests by using laptops with your brand at your new guest lobby. Or you donate raffle prizes with your company logo at an industry event. Or you send your clients a custom-branded tablet to help them track your services. There are infinite ways to put your brand in front of your customers.

In the race to get your brand to stand out in a crowded marketplace, it takes a clear objective and a deep understanding of your business, your customers and the marketplace.

Once you have established your brand, let us help you take it to the next level by making it known to your customers, partners and stakeholders. Contact us to get a complimentary mockup of what a custom-branded device looks like with your company logo.

The Beauty is in the Details at Viceroy Los Cabos

One of the newest resorts in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico, Viceroy Los Cabos is an architectural masterpiece, wrapped by ocean water in Mexico’s Baja California peninsula. A modernist dreamscape with futuristic designs, every detail of the luxury resort is considered, from the eye-catching, bold facade to the rich textures and unique art pieces throughout the property.

As one of the first experiences at the resort, guests are greeted at the hotel lobby by receptionists using HP laptops custom-branded by FUSION OF IDEAS. The back of each laptop is wrapped with StealthArmor, our proprietary protective film, showcasing the location’s signature gold sundial design.

StealthArmor is a precisely fitted film that maintains the thin lines of the laptop while offering style and protection. Because it is heat-bonded, the film is not permanent and used as a protective cover for nearly any mobile device without adding the unnecessary bulk of traditional cases.

A growing number of brands, particularly those in the hospitality and other consumer-facing industries, are using logos or other branding elements on their business devices as a way to elevate their brand equity.

In the case of Viceroy Los Cabos, the customized laptops with the resort’s sundial design complete the look of the striking hotel lobby, where every facet is part of the experience.

Custom-Branding Beyond Phones and Tablets

Think beyond traditional mobile devices for branding. Pictured here: Fujifilm Instax Cameras

Businesses are increasingly finding value in custom-branding mobile technology. Branded technology can be used as: 

  • a marketing tactic to elevate brand equity;
  • employee rewards or as gifts to clients and vendors;
  • a theft deterrent for company devices by having the company logo printed on them.

As one of our core services, customization is our business. We have partnered with more than 2,000 brands to create customized solutions, with phones and tablets being the most popular tech devices for custom branding. In the past few years, mobile accessories – such as device cases, speakers and headphones – have gained traction, particularly during the gifting season.

Our capabilities do not stop there. With laser etching, color printing and StealthArmor (our proprietary protective film) solutions, there is no limit to what we can customize. New products present different specifications, dimensions and materials, making for an exciting challenge for our design and production teams.

As people and businesses continue to move toward mobilization and personalization, we challenge you to think beyond traditional mobile devices and see how customization can take your business to the next level.

The Sky’s the Limit: Conga Custom Helicopter Drones

By Jennifer Fujimori

One of the best things about Fusion of Ideas customized hardware services is that the sky is literally the limit. We’ve showcased custom iPads, Apple Watches, iPhones, headphones, laptops, cases – and most recently, remote control helicopter drones. We worked with Conga, which offers a suite of solutions for using Salesforce.com, to customize a fleet of Cheerwing mini helicopters as a promotion for the actual helicopter tours they’re conducting at the annual Dreamforce conference. With help from our creative design team, Conga opted for a Stealth Armor cutout of their signature logo in white text on a red circle. The Stealth Armor is heat bonded to the nose of the helicopter to accent the red panels and create a polished, brand-new look. Check out the images of the final product, and let it inspire you to create your own custom tech!

Fusion of Ideas Core Products and Services

Okay, okay, so before we get our blog going, we have one more item of business that we would love to share, and that’s more information about our core products and services, which you can always find more information about on our website at www.fusionofideas.com.

Mobility is more than a necessity in business. It’s an art form. It requires the proper use of technology surrounded by brand experiences that are seamless and simple.

In today’s digital era, the smartest corporate leaders have mobilized their enterprise. Mobile adaption is defining the way your business will grow.

FUSION can place and manage client devices under proprietary Mobile Device Management (MDM) and administer all of your MDM needs. Devices are kitted, prepared and packaged from FUSION’s 26,000-square-foot warehouse in Southern California. FUSION ships devices to one or multiple locations around the world for delivery.

Our mission statement is extremely important to us at FUSION. It is our guiding star and keeps us going in the right direction. It reminds us why we do what we do.

Welcome!

The Fusion of Ideas Headquarters , located in Lake Forest, CA

Welcome to our Fusion of Ideas blog! We are a bold and cutting-edge company that is excited to open our doors a little more, and let you see inside the wonder of Fusion of Ideas. While we’ve been in business since 2007, we’ll get into more details later about our story and how we came to be, we wanted to give you a quick summary of what we do.  Who are we?

Fusion of Ideas helps businesses integrate and maximize mobility in their organizations through technology and brand experiences.

In a nutshell, Fusion of Ideas helps companies put together and implement programs for any of their mobile device (tablets, laptops, phones) needs. For example, say a major car brand wanted to have iPads in all of their locations as a sales tool for sales reps on the floor. FUSION would consult with that company to help them figure out the logistics of the program. If an ordering portal specific to their program is needed, Fusion can create it.

FUSION would then help that company with branding the iPads with the company’s logo (maybe even putting a specific dealership’s name on each device). FUSION would create cases or Stealth Armor (Fusion’s exclusive protective film) branded with the company’s logo on them to help protect the iPads with style. FUSION could also customize any accessory they might need such as headphones, speakers, styluses, etc.

FUSION would upload digital content to the devices, putting the company’s logo or desired home and lock screens onto the device. FUSION would place the apps or programs that they wanted on the device in the order and look that they want. FUSION could add catalogs or sales materials into apps/programs that would be easily accessible to the companies. And on top of all that, the FUSION app development team could create a custom app for that company to use with whatever program they are implementing.

When the devices are all powered and ready to go, FUSION can kit in any marketing materials needed, provide special packaging, and shrink wrap the devices ready to go back out. Devices can be shipped to multiple destinations across the world.

Outside of actually servicing the devices, FUSION also offers Mobile Device Management, help desk, break/fix, and training programs. One of the things we pride ourselves in is the fact that we handle all of these services under one roof. There are competitors out there that may do bits and pieces of what we do, but no one else handles every aspect of the project all in one location. We help empower companies to keep doing what they are good at by letting us figure out the logistics behind each project.

So now that you have a general sense of what we do, we can’t wait to share some of our exciting projects with you. Thanks for your interest and your time with checking us out! We hope we can WOW you with some of the cool things we constantly have going on.
