When you think of a brand, it is the name, the logos, the color schemes and the slogans that come to us most often. But a brand is much more than that.
Your brand is the buying experience you bring to your customers. Each client contact point is an opportunity to promote it.
Branding your organization's name is the first step to creating effective sales and marketing strategies. It allows your company to understand its place in the market and to be better equipped to reach its audience by transmitting the right messages.
Effective brands are based on three essential elements:
1. UniformityFor your clients to have a clear idea of ??what they can expect from you, you need to promote your brand in a focused and consistent way. Moreover, a targeted brand is at the heart of the concept of omnichannel marketing, of which we speak a lot. You need to send consistent images and messages to your customers in each of your marketing channels: website, social networking, email, advertising, display, or in-store experience.
How do you define your brand? Here are three important elements to consider:
Vision Statement -What is your goal? What are your core values? How does your brand reflect that? A vision statement can help you focus your ideas and rally your team around the broad goals of your business.
Proposition of Value -What value do you get from your customers that nobody else can offer? A unique value proposition allows your team to focus on one or two differentiating factors that stand out from the crowd and address the right people right.
Positioning Statement -How do you want to be perceived in the marketplace? The value of the brand is to ensure that the expectations of your customers correspond to this perception. Your positioning statement illustrates this balance.
It's your brand that makes your organization come to life for your customers and allows your marketing, sales and customer service teams to speak with one voice.
The uniformity of the client experience generates trust, which in turn stimulates sales and builds customer loyalty.
2. CommunityOnce your brand is clearly defined, you can identify your target market and target clients who adhere to the values, behaviors, and personality traits that characterize your organization.
A clear and consistent brand experience allows you to attract customers and employees who share your vision. You create a community around your business. In short, an active brand clarifies how your organization behaves, both externally and internally.
3. ContentNow that you have a clear mark, the time has come to give it life. A good content allows you to interact with your community. By sharing your knowledge through blogs, videos, webinars, computer graphics and informative e-books, you are positioned as an ally. With this content, you reinforce the commitment of your clients and illustrate how you can satisfy their needs and desires. If the definition of your brand allows you to be more aggressive, consider sending them emails or advertising campaigns to explain why your organization is the best, if not the only solution for them.
A brand for now and for the futureThese three essential elements constitute a platform allowing you to build a successful brand and can serve as a reference point to guide your efforts of valorization. Use them as a guide to determine if your brand experience meets your expectations and whether it continues to be relevant.
Ask yourself the following:
- Do we always see our brand in the same way?
- Do we present it consistently?
- Is our community expanding and becoming more engaged?
- Does our content reinforce our brand or, on the contrary, dilute it?
