As an entrepreneur, there is a lot of pressure when it comes to launching your brand. In addition to the marketing efforts required to get your brand and its products and services out there, you are faced with needing to stand out against the competition. However, with thorough research and a good grasp of your audience, key individuals, as well as the industry itself, you would be on the right track.
This week, the Find Your Audience team is sharing some effective tips and tricks on how to launch your brand successfully.
Figure out your target audience
Before you launch your brand, thorough market research needs to be conducted. This encompasses the data about your target audience and how to reach them. For instance, if your target audience are very active users of social media platforms, then looking into how to market your product on websites and applications such as Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram would be a step in the right direction. If your products and services are geared towards professionals and B2B marketing executives, then LinkedIn would be a good place to start in terms of identifying key individuals and influencers within the industry.
Make your brand stand out
What is your brand doing with its products and services that other ones are not? What makes your brand unique, and why should your target market care in the first place? Asking these types of questions is important prior to a brand launch because it can help in the advertising campaign process. By defining what your products and services do best and why consumers should either try them out or make the switch, you are also establishing your business as an upcoming leader and innovator within the industry as a whole.
Understand the buyer’s journey
To have a successful sales funnel, ensure that the buyer’s journey is clear and that potential leads and customers can access information with ease. Optimize each point in the journey in order to influence a sale. This can involve providing enough information about your products and services at the very start, encouraging leads to re-visit your shop page or website through remarketing campaigns, or even making the checkout process easy by utilizing services such as PayPal or other credit card processing companies. This may also encompass continuous market research in order to figure out what works best for your business given the newest industry trends.
Claim your business online
Prior to a brand launch, it is also integral to claim your business online. This can be in the form of various websites such as Facebook, LinkedIn, Yelp, Twitter, and Instagram. Doing this with the relevant websites would not only help others find your brand online, but also ensure that you have control of the information and content being put out in your brand’s name. This type of information can pertain to how your brand was founded, updated hours of operation, as well as the type of image or personality you want your brand to have as a whole.
Define the voice of your brand
On this note, make sure to work with a team of creative professionals and marketing experts to define the voice of your brand. Whether your brand will be making posts on social media, sending out newsletters and communications through email, or even publishing new content, having a defined voice in mind helps set your company apart from others. It also helps customers easily and quickly identify your brand, which establishes leadership within your chosen industry and increases brand awareness.
