4 More Ways to Create a Brand That Customers Remember.

 

It takes only 3 to 5 seconds to form a first impression. If your business doesn’t capture attention at first glance, not only are you missing out on brand recognition but on sales too.

If you haven’t felt your brand is quite at the level you envisioned, use these tips to step it up. From messaging strategy to visual content creation, here are 4 ways to make sure you’re delivering consistent, on-brand content.

1. Build your brand message around your “why?”

People want to feel like their purchase matters. When they connect with a brand, they tend to connect more to a particular attribute or promise that made them feel good. Focus your brand communication around the “why.”

For instance, which sounds more purpose driven?

a) Our office chairs are sleek and comfortable

b) Your brand colors: Color is often a misunderstood brand tool that many dismiss. Color is actually quite powerful and helps captures people’s attention. Too many colors not only harm your brand recognition, but they can actually repel your audience. There is purchase power in color. In looking at the most recognizable brands out there, we know their colors: Coca-Cola is red, IBM is blue, McDonald’s is red and yellow, and 40Billion is green and orange.

c) Your brand voice: The tone in which you communicate – both verbally and written – needs to translate into each medium.

d) Create branded templates: Develop templates that will save you time and establish consistency.

b) Made from 100% recycled materials, our office chairs are great for the environment as well as your back.

Even if Option B is more expensive, customers are likely to choose their chair because that brand statement conveys that the chairs are quality while being environmentally conscious.

Remember it’s about helping people connect to your brand in ways that go beyond your product or service. Build that emotional connection and you will stand out from your competitors.

2. Maintain brand consistency

Having a consistent aesthetic to your brand is essential to build recognition. Both your brand voice and visuals need to align. If your copy has a spunky, opinionated tone and your visuals have a soft vintage feel, you might be missing the mark. This process may be daunting, but it’s well worth it to leverage your brand growth. Brand consistency needs to be universal through your website, social media, advertising — every avenue your brand uses. The most important elements that help you communicate consistency are:

a) How many fonts you use: Keep your fonts to no more than three. Having too many will take away from your message. Make sure that what you use is legible, especially in smaller dimensions. You may choose to add more fonts to your collateral but only implement it for specific campaigns that require a slightly different aesthetic

3. Leverage video

Not all trends are worth following, unless it aligns with your brand and/or there is a major shift in the industry. Last year, brands saw more engagement through video than images. So, how can you tell your brand story without a lot of words? Use video.

The earlier you adopt video into your marketing strategy, the higher your chances are of getting traction.

4. Get creative with your content

Sharing your brand story can be tricky. But if you start to leverage your visual content in a way that builds curiosity, humor, or excitement, you could increase your exposure.

Ask a fill-in-the-blank question. This can help you get insight on what words resonate with your target audience, plus it can be very engaging.

Certain aspects of your brand connect with your audience more than others. Applying these steps will set your brand up for success.

16 Plus Golden Rules To Immediately And Massively Grow Your Business

16 Plus Golden Rules To Immediately And Massively Grow Your Business Plus: 120 Brainstorming
Marketing ‘Power Tools’
You Can Use Today.

https://www.mjfgroup.biz/xtreme-business-partner

Powerful strategies to skyrocket your business and multiply your profits and business success.

16 Plus Golden Rules To Immediately And Massively Grow Your Business

Introduction
Some of these 16 Rules are based on the results of marketing surveys covering over 60,000 advertisements and promotions. In other instances over 105,000 selling words and sentences have been tested on over 18,900,000 customers, to come up with the most effective sales principles. These rules have sold many millions worth of products. And they will sell millions more in the future.
No matter what you are selling, you are selling to people. Your customers all eat, sleep and have problems with their kids, wife or husband. They probably want to work less, look younger and need to lose a bit of weight and exercise more. In other words – they are human beings like you and I. Human nature doesn’t change. That’s why the rules below will apply today as they did 10, 30, or even 80 years ago.

So here it is . . .
Golden Rule:1
It is 5 times easier to sell something
else to your existing customers than
to get a new customer.
The easiest way to sell something else to your existing customers is by using the telephone or by sending them a letter. I’ve been accused of focusing too much on selling by Direct Mail . . . but it is by far the most efficient way for you to get more business. Your past clients are a “hot buyers” list. All you have to do is ask them to buy something else. And it doesn’t have to be your product either. You can offer them someone elses products. Thus, an accountant can offer financial services. A restaurant can send invites to a clothing sale. A car exhaust centre can promote a motor mechanic. A plumber can refer an electrician. And so on.

Golden Rules To Immediately And Massively Grow Your Business.

 

Golden Rule:
If you have an established business 70%
of your advertising money should be spent
on re-selling to your existing customers.
Why? See Rule No.1. And yet I see most businesses spend thousands in the media trying to get new business – only to forget all about those people after they buy. If you were to send out some thank you letters instead, or call your customers and ask them to buy again, you’d see an almost magic increase to your bottom line. Done correctly, this always works better than chasing new customers. Listen, next time you are going to run a full page ad in the newspapers promoting a sale or whatever, try this: Reproduce the ad and send it to your existing clients. Attach a note saying . . .
“I thought you may want to see this, come in the day before to get your best pick of the bargains. Regards….”
This will work wonders if your sale has a genuine appeal!!

I have been helping start-ups for years so decided I would start simply with my wife’s business and go step by step to get this into the Public Domain.

This is being started with no capital but using the skills we have both developed over the years including my getting a Wordpres training from Shawn Fouche and an Advanced Digital Marketing Diploma from Shaw Academy. The diploma is NVQ4 rated and accepted in the Eu as a Degree course.

So whilst I normally work with struggling, already existing businesses medium to large,  I can apply a certain amount of time to pro-bono work with good start-up ideas. So send me a mail with your idea and if this sounds worthwhile – to me. I am the sole judge as I am giving a certain number of hours, Pro-Bono. As a Senior IDC Expert, it is expected of me , in any event.. So lets talk. I do warn you though – Not everyone will be chosen.

  2. Compliance with international environmental standards;
  3. Shareholders/owners are expected to make some financial contribution:- The contribution of historically disadvantaged people under special circumstances may be lowered, in which case the corporation will be prepared to extend finance in excess of the owner’s contribution.
  4. The project/business must exhibit economic merit in terms of profitability and sustainability;
  5. We do not refinance fixed assets, since our aim is to expand the industrial base; and
