There is a good reason why marketers dive into the social media pond. Everyone is here. Market your brand here instead of choosing channels like TV, print and radio and you have better chances of improving your brand authority.
You listen, people listen, people talk Your marketing campaign to build your brand is probably based on research. You, or your brand marketing consultant, may research markets and interview target audience in order to build a set of associative values around your brand. However, the strategy also considers assumptions. Swim in the social media ponds and what happens is that people talk, you listen, they talk and you get feedback that helps you to refine your branding strategy. You find out what factor will differentiate and distinguish you.
Connections Listen to people and you get a good idea of what they expect your brand to be like and where the gaps are. Fill these gaps, develop your voice and establish connections. Engage with your audience and speak with confidence from your own special platform of values. It will impress people enough to look at you from a different angle – your angle. You create an authoritative voice and people do like authority.
Spreading the good word Humans are social creatures and it is in their nature to spread the word – good or bad. Come across as an authority, strike the right chord and people will talk about your authoritative brand presence to others in their circles. One very good thing about building brand authority on social media is that people do half the work for you and it is their voice that actually builds you up as an authority.
Actions matter People are not going to promote you on social media just because of your claims. Get your customers to interact with you on social channels and express their satisfaction. It helps impress others and raise value of your brand.
Everyone in your company can contribute to brand authority Business is about people. Companies are made up of people. Let everyone contribute their experiences and views. Social platform is ideal for everyone to have a distinct identity even as they work for one company. People outside relate to people within and if people within exude confidence as well as knowledge it helps in your branding activity. Each one within your organization can contribute specific knowledge that readers find useful within that niche. You come across as an authority and, by induction, so does your brand.
