Jeff Bezos, the founder of Amazon, once famously remarked: “Your brand is what other people say about you when you’re not in the room.”
Your brand already exists in the minds of your clients and customers—whether you realize it or not. By taking control of your brand image, you can shape and mold it to more accurately reflect your business.
The amplification of your brand image can be done effectively through various digital marketing activities:
User Experience – Your website is one of the first points of contact potential clients or customers have with your business. This is your first opportunity to show people why they should patronize you over your competitors. A clean and easy to navigate website design coupled with concise, clear, and persuasive copy will help establish your brand in the minds of your website visitors.
SEO – Search Engine Optimization, or SEO, can help drive more organic traffic and leads to your business. It can also help provide for a better user experience which means a higher conversion rate coupled with a lower bounce rate.
Content Amplification – Content marketing involves the creating and sharing of online content such as blog posts, case studies, and white papers. It’s designed to stimulate interest in your services or products and can help establish your brand in the minds of prospective clients.
Social Media Amplification – Social media marketing can help you achieve your branding goals by creating original and engaging content that will cause your audience to interact with your brand on the various social media sites.
