Online marketing provides business owners with an excellent opportunity for branding. Branding refers to creating a name for your business, building a reputation behind it, and increasing its visibility. Web branding refers to doing these tasks online.
The Need for Successful Branding
If you are a business owner, your business likely already has a brand name. However, simply having a brand name is not enough. You need people to recognize the name and relate it to your industry. The word Kleenex,for instance, means nothing in and of itself, but because of successful branding, almost everyone thinks of a facial tissue when they hear or see that word. Successful branding makes this happen.
Benefits of Successful Branding
Why should you focus some of your public relation efforts on brand recognition? Successful branding carries the following benefits:
- Consumers equate your business with your product or service
- Brings the image of quality to your business
- Makes you appear well established in the industry
Even if your business is new and inexperienced, successful web branding can give you the aura of a long-standing expert in the field.
How Social Media Fits
Through social media we can create a Facebook fan page for your company, have a company Twitter account, keep potential clients updated through LinkedIn, and instantly broadcast company news to the world through a company blog. We are able, with these social media outlets, to communicate with consumers on a personal level, establishing your company as an expert in the field and capitalize on any online buzz about your niche.
Of course, we will also monitor your reputation in these arenas as well. A negative forum post about your company or using your name, even if it is totally unfounded, can bring devastating consequences to your company’s online image. Online branding means being aware of the conversations going on throughout the World Wide Web that relate to your business, and keeping them as positive as possible. This ties hand in hand with online reputation management, another crucial SMO component of what we offer as a digital marketing agency.
Setting up Accounts
One of the key aspects of social media marketing is learning how to use social networking sites. LinkedIn, MySpace, Facebook, Twitter, and any other social networking sites you are considering can be a huge force making your business more visible. We will consider the aspects of social media and search engine optimization even when setting up these accounts. Tricks like incorporating a keyword into your name or putting a link on your blog to your Facebook page can all help improve your visibility.
You probably already have some training or understanding of public relations, but when you take your business online, the strategies you need to use will change. We will manage or show you how to manage your interactions with customers, clients, and the general public online in such a way that will present a positive, professional image of your business.
Speaking to Clients Online
When you speak with clients online, remember that anything said or done on the Internet can be seen by the world. We will help you learn how to manage conversations so that they paint your business in the best possible light, contribute to your successful branding campaign, and help you earn more business.
Monitoring Internet Buzz
Online Reputation Management is essential to succeeding online. We will leverage reputation monitoring tools to track what is being said about you online, and then bury those negative comments through the right SEO techniques. This will push more positive listings high in Google so the negative ones are not found.
