Today, branding your business has a lot less to do with presentation and a lot more to do with interaction. The following tips will help you properly brand your business online.
- It’s more important than ever to be an integral and evolving part of the conversation online. Social media is all about conversation and building effective relationships. Keep in the conversation by making regular posts to social media and always replying quickly to messages from customers. Social media has shortened the time frame for company responses and complaints. Always respond within minutes.
- Appearing to the masses as a source of expertise can go a long way toward building your brand. Identify media outlets that are most fitting to your particular areas of expertise and send them targeted pitches. Getting involved with professional organizations and attending conferences can help you spread your message and further build your brand.
- Be persistent in locating and targeting your niche. With so many businesses online it is more important than ever to make your brand stand out.
- Put a considerable amount of thought into your “about us” page. While you might not think too much about it, visitors to your website will. The goal is to connect with your site visitors.
- Remember to fully integrate social media into your website. This will help increase your connectivity and gain more traffic to your site.
- Online, an effective brand is all about trust and relationships. Build trust by showcasing your best work. Post testimonials and list big name clients that you’ve worked with. Consider incorporating your clients’ logos somewhere on your page. Mention any awards or recognitions that your company has received as well as any community service work, green initiatives and interesting facts about your business.
