Ten ways to build your brand in 2014January 3, 2014
Last year, we predicted that the three most critical promotional tools for the year were
- social media
This proved true, and these three will remain essential in 2014.
However, the success of each has necessitated even greater effectiveness to attain cut-through in markets where there is massive competition for customer attention.
Here are our ten ways to build your brand in 2014
1 .. responsive web design
(if your site is not optimised for mobile, you are missing out more, every day)
2 .. enterprise mobility
(multi-screening, BYOD and BYOA, are all changing the way people work)
3 .. short-form platforms
(Twitter, Pinterest, Instagram, Kik, Snapchat, Vimeo, Vine and YouTube)
4 .. authenticity
(employee advocates, sponsored programmes, paid advertising on social platforms and search engines, social media outsourcing)
4 .. word-of-mouth advocacy
(through passion, relevance and trust, genuine organic love for a brand influences behaviour far more than paid promotion)
5 .. real-time marketing
(opportunistic and engaged blogging with your customer demographic is a potent sales tool)
6 .. your own brand list-building
(we’ve all helped Facebook and LinkedIn build massive networks .. Now’s the time for DIY)
8 .. visually innovative & branded content
(partner with graphic designers, photographers and video producers to build evocative visual assets: images, infographics, videos and videographics)
9 .. coherent social storytelling
(engaging brand stories through social marketing to build relationships with consumers by sharing common goals)
10 .. interactive tagged video
(enabling social media users to add tags, hashtags and keywork links to video)
All these strategies can be applied to your brand.
