Your brand is you. It's everything that your business is, encapsulated in a name, and sometimes in a slogan. But naming your business and creating a slogan isn't enough. You've got to build your brand by showing what your brand stands for.
Here are the top five ways to build your brand online:
Aim to add something to your website every day, even if it's only one blog post (see below). Building your website is the easiest, cheapest, and fastest way to build your brand, online or offline.
Your blog can help you to build your brand as nothing else can. Spend a few minutes today checking out the websites of others in your industry. You may be surprised, and even shocked, to discover how many of your competitors are blogging.
This has huge benefits for your Search Engine Optimization (SEO) activities. Can you imagine what this could do to build your brand? Once you've written the articles, post them to your website, and to article directories, of which there are hundreds online. When you post these documents to article directories, people are made aware of your brand, and your brand's message spreads virally, as other people promote your material on their Web sites.
Tip: your local media, newspapers, radio and TV, are always desperate for stories -- send your releases to your local media, as well as posting them online.
Integrate it with a payment gateway and they'll be able to purchase your content online.
Branding is a function of marketing, and whether your business is brand new or well-established, branding your business makes your business memorable, so it's essential. These top five activities will create a strong brand for you, much sooner than you think possible.
