When you’re a new or young business, introducing your products and services to a wide range of people can be challenging. Even though you can leverage the internet, it’s still competitive and hard to get noticed. This is why you need clearly defined goals and the appropriate campaigns.
A brand awareness campaign aims to improve your brand’s visibility. If your campaign is successful, people will recognize your brand when they hear your name or see your logo. And hopefully, they will feel positively toward your brand and understand what separates you from the competition.
Here are five tips to help you launch a successful brand awareness campaign.
- Know Your Target Audience
Look at your customer base. What do they have in common? What problems do they have? How do your products and services help? It’s also important to do some market research so that you can see what competitors your audience uses and why they shop with them.
With this information, you can build a profile for your ideal customer. This profile will guide your campaigns because you’ll know who you are speaking to.
- Be Active on the Right Platforms
A great brand awareness campaign is more than showing ads to the right people. You also need to connect with them in the right places. Where does your audience spend most of their time? Are they watching videos on YouTube or posting images to Snapchat?
When you know what platforms your audience uses most, you can post on there and capture their attention. We recommend sticking to two channels. You can have others, but the majority of your focus should go to the most profitable channels.
- Set Short- and Long-Term Goals
With achievable goals, your campaign will have a clear direction and purpose. What do you want your brand awareness campaign to do? Do you hope to gain more website traffic? Get more people to sign up for your newsletter?
Here are some things to think about when setting short- and long-term goals:
- What you want to achieve from the campaign
- Which strategies you’ll use to reach your goals
- How you’ll track your progress
- How the campaign fits into the bigger picture
- Show Off the Human Side of Your Business
The main goal of a brand awareness campaign is to influence how people feel about your brand. To have this impact, your content should reflect your personality. Keep your brand messaging consistent as well so that people have a firm understanding of who you are and what you offer. Most importantly, remember what makes your brand unique and show it off – this is how people remember brands!
- Enhance the Customer Experience
Experiences matter just as much as the products and services being sold. Plus, when customers are happy, they’re more likely to leave a favorable review. Work on improving the customer experience so that your target audience wants to buy from you. Some of the best ways to boost the customer experience are by:
- Providing great customer service
- Offering a loyalty program
- Building relationships offline
- Solving your customers’ challenges
- Maintaining a smooth and intuitive website
