To gain the “success” you want in your business, you need customers. Lots of them. And in order to gain lots of customers, you need consumers everywhere to be aware of your brand! Gaining that awareness requires investment of some time and resources into a few different places.
Attract a Social Media Following
Social media platforms are used by millions of people all over the world, every day. These apps or sites are a perfect opportunity to get your name out to this vast and far reaching audience—and even better, your presence on these platforms doesn’t have to cost you very much at all to run! You can pay for advertising and for graphic design services if you choose, but having an account for anyone to follow is free of charge. These resources allow for the fast spreading of your brand image and a central, easily accessible, and easy to navigate center for information about your business. With the potential for hundreds of thousands of views every day, this should be top priority for you in getting your name out!
Produce Simple Advertisements
Advertisements are the tried and true means of sparking recognition and interest. As simple as an image can be, people’s brains have an easier time remembering visuals than any other form of broadcasted information. Take advantage of this easy means of memorability, especially in highly trafficked areas like public hubs or the internet. For example, a display ad is one of the oldest and simplest forms of internet advertising. This also allows for viewers to click the advertisement and be linked to your actual web pages where they can find more information and even buy directly from your site.
Connect with Communities
One way to make a lasting impression with consumers is to become a part of the things they care about. Consider partnering with other local businesses to increase your audience and customer access pool—customers who will connect you to their friends, family and acquaintances… people who will likely share values and interests, and therefore have genuine interest in you too! You might also consider sponsoring local events so that your investment in the community is clear to those present. It’s effective and sincere advertising that will ensure you are remembered!
Using all of these opportunities to put your brand “on the map” will ensure heightened visibility and resonance with thousands of consumers. Gain the awareness you need to do the business you want!
