The Power Of A Brand
The way that people communicate and get their news and information has changed forever, but the elements that go into creating a brand have not.
Having a successful company is one thing. Having a brand that makes a powerful, positive impression in the buyer’s mind is something else. Marketing psychology says that the average person needs to hear a message five or six times (we would argue more, in fact) to make a decision or take action. In our era’s overstimulated, overcommunicated marketplace, the prospect’s mind is more crowded than ever. Making an impression there – and turning consumers into repeat customers – is no easy feat.
For marketers, it still starts with forging an effective brand strategy, one built on a solid foundation of useful and compelling content. The marketer’s toolbox has changed, but the core dynamics of brand creation and brand management remain the same: find a way to consistently, frequently and creatively get out a message or story about a company or product.
Integrating Traditional & Online
To be truly effective, brand marketing strategy requires an integrated mix of traditional and online communications. Public relations, compelling websites, search marketing and social media marketing all work together to make sure a company’s message or story reaches the right people through Google, Facebook, blogs and online news sites.
TrafficPRM helps companies with the core strategic assets they need for branding. These assets include:
- Strategic Marketing Plans. What does it take to build a brand? It depends on the company and the marketplace in which they operate. Traffic starts with communications assessments that evaluate and analyze the proper marketing direction for clients. For more about our assessments, click here.
- Story and Message Development. People don’t care about talking points, they care about stories. A message isn’t effective unless there is a larger story to tell. We collaborate with clients to craft their story using just the right language.
- Content Marketing Strategy. Once you have the story, what’s the most effective way to tell it? We work with clients to marshal the message into the right medium, from news releases and speaking engagements to blog posts and tweets.
Traffic understands that effective marketing and branding requires a multi-disciplinary approach. Our team comes from the worlds of online marketing and the halls of corporate communications.
We know how to put all of the right elements of branding together.
