Now more than ever having an online presence is vital to securing customers and pushing a successful product. As more of our life’s are increasingly spent online, having a strong online brand that customers can recognise and flock too is an important step to running a successful business.
Depending on your industry it’s possible to achieve a good online presence in a number of different ways. Reaching customers where they are is a necessary part of building your online brand and can greatly increase how successful your product is.
Possibly the easiest way to reach customers is through online advertising. By paying for adverts you’re guaranteed to get eyes on your product. Online advertising can take a number of forms, from being placed in a a user’s social media feed to banner ads across websites.
Thanks to online tracking, it’s possible to accurately choose specific users that are likely to engage with your product. These types of adverts mostly come through social media and appear in users feeds or while browsing other parts of the app. By being placed in a user’s social feed, your brand can feel more personal and build a stronger connection than other forms of advertisements.
It’s important to take advantage of the specific niche of an advertisement. Banner ads for instance are much broader and greet a range of users when they visit a site. Because of this it’s a great idea to tailor your advertisement to the specific website it’s being placed on to try and capture their type of audience.
Using social media is a vital part of any brands marketing strategy. Having the potential to reach millions of users without needing to spend money on expensive advertising is an amazing opportunity for companies attempting to improve your online presence.
However, this doesn’t come without its own pitfalls. While it can seem easy to routinely schedule posts that advertise your brand and promote products this approach rarely works as expected. Users can become board and irritated with companies that post ad nauseam and this can in fact damage your brand.
When planning a social media strategy, it’s important to have a clear identity in mind for your product. By building around an identity, users are more likely to engage with your product. Excellent brand identities can even cause users to share your posts of their own volition, thereby improving your online presence even more.
The social magnitude that was once unique to celebrities has now been democratised thanks to the power of the internet and social media. Now anyone with an iPhone can become an overnight sensation and build a large following. When building your online presence, taking advantage of someone else’s brand can help build your image and gain you loyal followers.
Building relationships with influencers can be a rewarding experiment that can guarantee customers gain knowledge and understanding of your product. By advertising through influencers, it’s possible to give customers a much deeper and more personal look at your product that can lead to an increase in sales.
