One of the big questions you should ask yourself when creating a brand - why should people choose you? What is it that makes you special? Why should consumers even consider buying your products or services? What is the purpose of your brand? What do you have to offer that is different from all your competitors?
One-hit wonders, the once greats of the music world. When an old hit pops into our mind, it has the power to take us back to a time and place in our lives and often leaves us thinking, what happened to that artist?
When it comes to building a healthy, profitable business, there are countless pieces of advice out there for entrepreneurs to dive into. Yet, one avenue which hasn’t been widely covered over the years is how building a strong personal brand as a business owner can benefit your company as a whole. One explanation for the lack of attention is the internet flipping personal branding on its head.
Influencers have become popular because of their ability to relate to an audience and convey messaging that is real and authentic. People naturally love to put a face to a name and when they can associate someone they like in real life to a brand they’re interested in, they’re more likely to buy.
As an entrepreneur, constantly improving your products, services, website, brand image and more is simply a reality of the business. If you aren’t looking for ways to sharpen and remold your company into a better version of itself on a consistent basis, then you’ll likely fall behind your competitors quickly. That being said, the approach that many entrepreneurs and working professionals are taking when it comes to improving their business is fundamentally flawed in a number of ways.
In today’s cutthroat marketing landscape, it seems like standing out from the competition gets harder by the day. When it comes to content marketing specifically, the amount of competing noise does not stop. There are certainly ways to stand out from the crowd most brands are aware of, such as social media advertising, Google Adwords and more. Yet, there's a very effective and simple method to differentiate yourself from your competitors that many entrepreneurs often overlook or are simply unaware of: creating a brand kit.
On average, five to seven brand impressions are required before someone will remember your brand, according to Pam Moore. And, with everyone constantly being on his or her smart phones or computers, this means it’s imperative to get your brand identity established online when building brand awareness.
According to Jenna Hanington, senior content strategist at Pardot, “Brand messaging refers to the underlying value proposition conveyed and language used in your content. It's what makes buyers relate to your brand by inspiring them, persuading them, motivating them, and ultimately making them want to buy your product.” In other words, the purpose of your brand message is to connect with your target audience and thereafter convert them to customers.
Logos are everywhere. A 2016 study by the market research firm Yankelvich estimated that the average person sees over 5,000 ad/logos per day, up from 2,000 just 30 years ago. Logos and brands are big business, with many companies spending upwards of a million dollars to create the logo that will give them the strongest brand identity. Companies need to be noticed, and that is where the logo comes in.
The ability to connect with customers is one of the most important measures of a company’s success. Once you’ve established your company and developed your product, you need to reach out to the masses. Finding quantifiable ways to market your product is imperative if you want to become a formidable player in the industry. Knowing that goal and understanding how to achieve it, however, are often too very different things.
