In a business environment as competitive as the one we all live in today (maybe the most competitive business environment that has ever existed in human history), brand recognition is mission-critical in your industry and beyond if you are going to have any real shot at success.
At the same time, because markets (even niche markets) are so cluttered and so crowded it can feel like an almost impossibility to get the kind of brand recognition necessary to build your business and achieve your financial dreams.
Thankfully, with the marketing tips and tricks below, you’ll be able to jump start the process and give yourself a significant competitive advantage moving forward.
Consistency is king when it comes to branding
The most important thing you can do when you are looking to improve your branding is to focus on the consistency of your marketing, your messaging, your targeting, and most every other aspect of your business.
Consistency and repetition will get you farther in the brand game than anything else and it needs to be a major part of your marketing efforts.
Optimize your online properties
Today’s customer is in a hurry, and they know that all of your competitors – and all of their options – are only just a click or tap away if your website or your mobile platform isn’t as optimized and is lightning fast as humanly possible.
Spend time and money to overhaul your web properties if they aren’t blazing fast already, and make sure that every aspect of your online properties are as simple and as intuitive to use as possible.
Take advantage of social media
Social media is a powerful force for marketing but can also be used to raise brand awareness and as a customer service solution as well. Create social media accounts across all major platforms, release content on them regularly, and use them to drive traffic to your business as often as you are able to.
Create quality and valuable content
Far too many businesses out there are pushing “paper mill” quality content, essentially rewriting, refreshing, and sometimes copy and pasting content that is invaluable, isn’t useful, and isn’t doing them any favors with their customer base. If you’re going to build a brand that in turn builds your business, you have to have something of value for your customers – and that starts with your content.
Take advantage of video marketing opportunities
YouTube is one of the most frequently visited websites on the planet, and other web video hosting platforms aren’t that far behind. Build a channel, post high quality content on their regularly, and have calls to action that push traffic from that platform to your online stores or sales pages and your branding will go through the roof.
Leverage legacy branding solutions like press releases, too
A press release may not be as “sexy” a marketing approach as it used to be in the past but that doesn’t mean it is any less effective. Make sure that you are sending out regular press releases, particularly with legacy media if your customer base still utilizes legacy media, and you may be able to gain a foothold in a marketing channel that others have foolishly abandoned.
Create a blog and post regularly
Regardless of the kind of business you are running, nothing builds a brand faster than a real-life personality sharing important content, updates, and news on a consistent basis. A log bcan make all the difference in the world when it comes to one business cementing their brand in a market and another being ignored almost completely.
