Branding 101: Fulfill the brand's promise
A brand promise is a commitment a company makes to those who interact with it. This isn't necessarily a description of its products, but a definition of what the company stands for.
By way of an example: ZipBooks (zipbooks.com) is an accounting software and online invoicing platform. Their brand promise is being easier, quicker, and user-friendly. To help them deliver on this message, they've designed a high-converting homepage to capture the attention and interest of potential users, fast.
Keep in mind that your brand promise has to be consistent, across any channels through which a consumer or customer may interact with it: person-to-person, or through a website, app or any form of communication.
