A business website is more than a virtual storefront. It is the reincarnation of your brand in a digital marketplace that will become the central hub for your company’s online advertising and communications. It acts as a virtual elevator pitch where businesses have less than eight seconds to convince users they are in the right place.
Marketing a business in today’s competitive environment can be challenging. The exponentially growing number of tools designed to help you reach new customers and build new online relationships can be overwhelming if you aren’t familiar with the intricacies.
Imagine what your business would look like performing at its full potential.
Would your corporate space or website be designed differently than it is now? Do employees and consumers engage on a deeper level? Is the company more involved with the community and advocates?
This visioning exercise can reveal where your business is underperforming and prioritize upcoming marketing initiatives.
When the word “brand” is mentioned in business, what comes to mind? For many, it is a logo. It is the visual look of the home page or the quality of print materials.
In actuality, a brand is much more than that. A business’s brand is cultivated in every public-facing interaction. This, of course, encompasses the examples listed above, but they only begin to touch on everything that goes in to building your brand.
What does your brand stand for? What are its core values? How do you want consumers to feel about the brand?
These questions are part of the brand discovery process. It is the foundation to building a unique and sustainable brand. The results will define the purpose and culture of your organization.
