What is a Brand Audit?
A brand audit is an in-depth analysis of how your business is performing online. If you’ve been in business a while, but do not have a full-time marketing specialist, your online brand probably needs improvement. A brand audit performed by a professional marketing agency will show you where your brand ranks online, reveals your business strengths, weaknesses, opportunities for growth/expansion, and an overall look at how you are doing. Audits are recommended to be done annually, but new businesses may want a semi-annual audit to ensure they are headed in the right direction from the start.
