When someone sees your logo they should immediately form a mental image of what your business does and what its brand stands for. Marketing is the best way to ensure this happens. Just a little marketing can elevate your brand and boost your profits.
Stop Thinking of Marketing as Advertising
One of the biggest mistakes many new business managers make is automatically equating marketing with traditional advertisements. Yes, there is still some value connected to television spots, radio commercials, and even pay-per-click advertising, but you can’t focus all of your attention on those methods. Today’s consumer craves the intimate connection they receive when you’re involved with social media.
Social media marketing is a great way to expand your brand. It provides you with a unique platform that allows you to showcase behind the scene looks at your business, connect one-on-one with your customers, and tell your brand’s story. If you don’t already have a social media marketing strategy in place, it’s time you develop one.
Let Your Website Speak for Itself
Your website is one of the most important tools you have in your marketing toolbox. A good website doesn’t just enhance your brand, it showcases it. You want your website to be synonymous with your brand and vice-versa. The key to getting the most out of your website is making sure the content is organized and relevant, make sure your logo is prominent, have some fun images posted on the pages that help drive home your brand image and make sure the site is easily navigable.
Marketing Expands your Brand by Building Customer Trust
These days, simply having a great product isn’t enough to promote your brand or gain long-term customers. Today’s customer has a lot of choices available to them which allows them to be picky about where they spend their money. They won’t shop at your business if they don’t trust your brand. Digital marketing is a great place to start building a trusting relationship between your brand and the members of your target market.
Traditional advertising helps potential customers find you. Social media marketing is where a trusting relationship starts to develop. Potential customers use your posts and the way you respond to other posts to determine whether your business offers high-quality, responsive customer service. If you do, they will eventually purchase from you. As long as the entire experience is positive, they’ll recommend you to their friends and family, starting the entire cycle over again.
Marketing Helps you Gauge the Effectiveness of your Brand.
One of the great things about operating a business in today’s world of digital marketing is that it’s easier than ever to gauge the effectiveness of your brand and your marketing strategies. All you have to do is collect the analytics from each digital source you’ve used and compare the data to your sales, social media responses, and web visits. The data helps you determine which marketing strategies work and which failed to generate the desired results. Most importantly, the data makes it possible to determine if your target market responds favorably to your brand or if you need to make adjustments.
