Why Branding is the Best Marketing
Your brand is your most valuable asset. Now more than ever, your brand is the most important thing about your organization.
The organizations that will survive over the course of the next decade are those that invest in building a distinct brand.
In order to succeed in today’s marketplace, you need brand loyalty. It’s not enough to have a great product or service anymore – you need a brand people will fall in love with. A brand people will go out of their way to support. Brand loyalty doesn’t come by following the latest marketing tactics. Brand loyalty comes through having a distinct brand. A brand worth following.
Marketing trends and platforms come and go, and almost everyone has access to them. It’s a race to the bottom. But not everyone can build a trustworthy brand, because it takes commitment, conviction, and boldness.
The latest marketing tips on how to interrupt people and buy their attention won’t cut it anymore. You need a compelling brand people want to follow.
Coercive marketing tactics offer quick, but temporary results. Building a brand, on the other hand, leads to long-term success. Your brand is ultimately about trust, and buying followers, spamming accounts, using click-bait, and misleading people aren’t how you build trust. You can get a lot of attention and one-time engagements that way, but not trust.
Building a loyal audience – a community of likeminded people that trust you and your work – is only possible with a compelling brand.
When you have a distinct brand, your other marketing efforts will begin to take off.
Your brand serves as the foundation for all of your marketing efforts.
When you have a distinct, recognizable, trustworthy brand, you’ll finally start to see some real results from your marketing. Because it’s your brand – not your product or service – that people will be loyal to. It’s your brand that they will follow. It’s your brand that they will tell people about.
