“Does your content lead readers on a journey, or does it merely stuff them as leads into a pipeline?” – Ann Hadley, Head of Content, Marketing Profs As a brand agency we work on different ideas and different brands each day. Our job is primarily to make them stand out as business and more importantly to make them resonating & truthful to their respective audiences. Smarter Branding Goals – are integrated goals. They are not just customer oriented, vision oriented they are created out of a positioning which works for both. Gone are the days when businesses survived on single agendas being talked about in a single manner, a celebrity endorser. The brands need to engage, connect & deliver experience through different channels as per their popularity with the varied target segments. This is what differentiates branding from advertising. Advertising can target a single goal, it could be around a product, a service or an offering. In an advertisement, you can concentrate on the benefit to the audience. On the contrary, branding is holistic. It works on the fundamentals of your entity, covering the essentials, the business purpose, consumer insight, competition and also the benefit. It works like on the behaviors, the environment, the brand goals, the brand benefits and works the brand plans that way only. India celebrates MahaShivratri today i.e., the February 14th, 2018. Yes, the date which is long been commercialized by the marketers & business houses of the past as The Valentine’s Day. Many a times, the client team gets into confusion – as to what to keep and what to miss. It is also complicated because some of the brand owners witness religious posts, other notice the commercial viability of running some campaigns of the globally acclaimed commercial day which offers financial viability and instant impulsive actions from customers of all strata. At the fundamental core of what your company is and what they do, is who they are. The story. Branding and Brand Management revolves around – the brand story. The brand reaches its audience through its content, the channels and visual strategy. In the pre-digital era of branding, the brand collaterals used to be around the Offline Brand Communication. The offline brand communication channels included:...

How to brand in 2018 ?

How to brand in 2018 ?

By on Jan 16, 2018 in Digital Branding | 0 comments

Wow! What a turbulent year that was! Giving all of us jerks & pauses with big decisions for nations that waved the small business plans that we had! Be it the historic demonetization or reforming GST, my brand owners felt confused and undecided. Over to the digital era – where the brands saw an influx of videos, google played well with the SEO and Content emerged as the king – only when handled well! Whatever happened left us with Lessons and Triggers for the future! Nothing went right but nothing went wrong too. But new year is certainly the time to check on the wrongs to become slightly less wrong then earlier (I like this philosophy of Mark Manson,the NYTimes bestselling author) Well that’s exactly how Branding is taking its Shape with the Digital branding shaping ways for businesses – whether you are selling products or services. The approach is minimalist as far as the customers are concerned. The approach note needs to be detailed as far as the clients are concerned. When you are sold – you need to keep updates easy & frequent. When you are selling you need to detail out as much as you can – so that the person can derive value for money from your quote itself.   The world is becoming interesting. And so is the dynamics of business. The social media is opening ways of expression and is giving us the freedom to reach out & expand our horizons. But it again depends on what you are, who are you chasing and how do you plan to reach to your consumers!   Choices are abundant. As a brand marketer – we have choices and as a consumer we have more choices. We choose what we want to see, follow and even whether we want to be followed by or not by a so & so person.   Advertisements are Pouring. Yes, advertisements like always are a solution- from temporary bliss & business. And mind you they work too. But the challenge remains same – is your advertisement sharp enough to create that space in the mind of consumer. Will it stick forever? Was it effective? Did it influenced the prospect to...

Two Days and Three M’s of Digital Reboot

Two Days and Three M’s of Digital Reboot

By on Aug 12, 2015 in Challenges for Start-ups, Digital Branding, Entrepreneurship, Start-up Brands | 0 comments

It is really been long that I took time out to share updates on my entrepreneurial journey, experiences or hurdles, struggles or happiness, profits and losses! Unlike everyone else entrepreneurs cannot take it easy, they most of the times work for more hours, procrastinate due to tiredness and sometimes are found juggling between the dream run and reality. It is all so interesting, needs patience and needs dare to. It is been 5+ years of entrepreneurship for me and I kick-started this year with an agenda. Learning something and enhancing my skill-set, personality, friends or network was a part of it. Half the year gone by and I was yet to get a boost to do something exciting. I had been thinking of learning music, a new language etc. But being a business woman that I am, I chose a Digital Marketing Workshop to start with. It will help me brush up my digital skills and in turn will help my business, my work and it was for just 2 days of a weekend. So I enrolled for a digital reboot. And because I was excited about it, I had mailed my doubts & queries on module subjects to our trainer a day before the workshop! How mean, nope; how resourceful! Another good thing about this whole thing, I was looking forward to meet people, make connections, to reach out more entrepreneurs for ideas & inspiration and to make friends. I planned to reach on time and with the excitement and good habits I managed to reach early on day one. It was good as I got to connect with some of the participants and was happy to realize that many of them were entrepreneurs. And each one was exciting for the digital reboot with masterclass. The fact brought in some more positive energy. Continuing, here is brief about the session and my version of Three M’s. Hope you enjoy reading. ———————————————— The Opening Act was simple ‘Om Chanting’ and I quite liked the logic for doing this, it helps us gain ourselves together and let go the several kinds of energies we all carried from the pre-occupied hassled world. And guess what, because of this simple trick –...

Internet and communication technology have advanced way too much. It gives the power to potential customers out there to look for solutions to their problems online without having to put efforts for travelling, visiting the market places which in a way also cuts the possible costs that can occur. Moreover e-business has become the latest trend in present scenario. It becomes imperative for any business to create an online presence. Here the website comes into picture. A website is your first impression to your prospective clients. It enables the potential customers to view what you have to offer to them. It makes them able to access the needed information anytime and anywhere. The more detailed you are – the higher the trust levels of your visitors. The information or the content you provide on website ought to be true and relevant. A website helps in creating a perception in the minds of clients/customers that we have necessary knowledge about the business. A simple question you should think before you start writing the content for your website – Are we offering solutions to their problems? The more detailed you are about a subject – the chances of a positive call to action double. Imagine if you have put less information, the visitor will lose interest in the middle and there are chances they will drift away to get better results for their queries. Is it important to know your website visitors in advance? Yes. Once you have the idea what are the current trends of the market, you understand what client/customer is looking for. This gives you the confidence to develop the right offer for right customer. Certainly when you know in advance what information the customers will be checking out on your website, you will be able to provide more meaningful information. In a nut shell it gives a sense and a purpose to your work. You cannot mention complexities on the website as not all users are equally educated on the subjects equally. So the language has to be simple and approachable – heavy jargon and tough English is not advised. It only confuses your visitors and those who are naive will only switch to simplified sites. That...
