If you want to have a successful company, branding is everything. Since everyone is building a brand, you need to learn to market in a way that gets your brand voice across strongly, so that you build equity with customers.
The more you know about yourself and the customers that you serve, the easier it’ll be to create the right brand. Consider these tips for finding your voice.
1. Don’t Move Forward Until You Know Your “Why”
Before you can teach someone about who you are, you need to know it intrinsically. A big part of this revolves around knowing why you do what you do.
Your “why” will inform everything from your choice of logo to the tone of your content.
For example, it’s one thing to sell clothing, but if you know you started your clothing brand as a mom that worked two jobs to make ends meet, and made your baby stylish onesies in your spare time — this is the kind of thing your customers should know.
People don’t just buy your products, they buy your story and who you are. This is especially the case now since people can easily shop online and have all the options in the world at their fingertips.
2. Use the Social Media Platforms That Your Audience Prefers
You’ll also need to get to know social media if you want to build a brand today. A big part of this is figuring out who your customers are and what social media platforms they tend to use.
If your audience prefers video, make sure you are giving it to them in plentiful doses. Likewise, if your target audience is more likely to share photos or moments on
Instagram and Snapchat, this is information you need to be aware of.
When you understand these demographics, you will be better able to tell stories across the right platforms.
3. Do Some Exercises to Flesh out Your Brand
It’ll take some deliberate exercises to find your brand voice. For example, you and your team can each come up with five words that come to mind when you think about your brand.
Chances are that you’ll find some commonalities once you share your words. These and other exercises can be valuable in figuring out your voice.
4. Create Content and Undergo Trial and Error
Finally, a big part of building your voice just involves rolling up your sleeves and creating content. This means going through some trial and error as well to figure out what engages with people and what doesn’t.
