Branding your company may seem easy but there is actually a lot of work that goes into creating a thoughtful outlook that resonates with potential clients or customers. Even now, some businesses are going through a rebranding phase as we all continue to navigate through the Coronavirus. Thankfully, there are ways to build a brand while saving money.
5 Easy Ways to Brand Your Business on a Budget
- Understand Your Audience – Knowing your target audience is key to creating content that resonates with them. A great way to get to know them is by creating a buyer persona that represents the values and characteristics of your ideal customer. The outline will showcase the challenges that your potential customer may have and how your product and/or service can help solve their problems. Some key demographics to include are their age, gender, education, as well as their day-to-day life. Understanding their goals will help you determine what kind of media they are consuming and how you can reach them with your brand.
- Identity and Brand Voice – Now that you’ve begun to know your audience you can create your brand identity. How does your brand look? How does your brand sound in the tone you use in your marketing efforts? Key elements to include are your company’s values and what they represent for your audience. Once you have these outlined you can then focus on crafting a thorough website with imperative emails, social content, and blogs that highlight your brand’s mission statement.
- The Social Media Map – Now that you know who your brand is as well as who your target audience is, it’s time to reach them and a powerful outlet is through social media. Determine where your audience is spending most of their time on social media and which channels to utilize. It’s very effective to reach people where they’re already present, and that definitely includes their online behavior. Don’t feel like you have to be on every social channel, just choose the ones that your audience is on to make your brand presence known.
- Brand Blogging – Servicing your clientele with what you know is a great way to reach your target audience through the power of the blog that lives on your company website. Providing fresh and valuable content on an ongoing basis increases your website’s rankings and makes your brand more prevalent through different search engines to attract new customers. Plus, blogs can also be fed through your social channels to help cast a wider net for potential customers.
- Customer Service is Key – We can’t stress this enough! Having excellent customer service is viable for a long partnership with your customers.
