Ah, the age of the internet, a brave new world where communication is so convenient…it seems like a dream for branding and advertising, an opportunity for companies to directly connect with potential consumers. However, this reach of social media has proven to be a double-edged sword for many. Ineffective branding can prove to make some brands less significant if they can not connect to consumers on a cultural level. San Diego branding and graphic design company, Lien Design understands how to connect with patrons on a cultural level and they can help your product make that valuable connection.
Once upon a time, cultural competition was limited. There were only three major channels on the television and movies were distributed through local movie theaters. Magazines were restricted to what you might find on drug store shelves. Today, there are cable networks, DVRs and internet which makes it easier for people to escape branding. To really make yourself noticed, you need to create a voice which will relate across many channels. To successfully do this, you might want to ask yourself a series of questions.
What Is the Essence of Your Brand?
What do you think your brand means to most people on an emotional level? Focus on the feelings you think your brand might evoke and capitalize on these. In other words, develop your personality.
Who is Your Audience?
Figure out who you want to target your brand to and the best way to relate to those people. Create a statement of who you are and where you come from. This will promote loyalty among your customers.
What Are Your Strengths?
Think about what makes you stand out as a company and make sure this is being reflected in your branding. You can even do this by polling your social media following.
Who Is Responding?
Although you may target a certain demographic, the response you are getting might surprise you. That’s why it’s important to know how you are being perceived through social media. You can find this out by using social analytics tools.
What Are Your Company Goals?:
Think about your company and its mission. Think about where you would like your company to be five years from now. All of this can be valuable in figuring out how you want to position your company and who you want to market to.
Creating a consistent online voice to your customers is the key behind meaningful branding. But it doesn’t happen overnight. It needs to be created over time and strategy is important. Companies will need a team behind them to make sure their branding is successful and that they are presenting a well thought out package to their customers.
