In many markets, brands are scooping up every opportunity for connection that they can get, from events and tradeshows to celebrity endorsements. The question is, what holds more long-term value? Organically raising brand awareness, as a business would obtain from earned media, or a guaranteed placement opportunity like an event activation or an advertisement? Also, is there a method that better supports sales?
Building your brand’s social channels, including Instagram, so that you’re not solely reliant on the channels of others to be seen.
Most entrepreneurs and executives know that in order to be successful, they will need to have a plan or strategy.
Whether your business is service or product based, you are going to start off and continue to have the same question:
“How are we going to get people to know about, care, and potentially buy into our business?”
Like all relationships, you’ll need understanding, communication and patience. Businesses must understand the needs of their target audience, and how they fit into their life, before sharing how they can fulfill that need. Unlike paid media or other direct sales channels, social media requires a big-picture mindset, because the goal is to build relationships-not expect an immediate conversion.
