Your business image probably holds more value than most metrics or performance indicators that brands track these days. In a market that relies on emotional allegiances, if you don’t have a brand identity that can connect with your customers, you’re probably not going to make it very far as a business in 2024.

Let’s just say it’s not so easy as putting out a few official statements about your product or your company. It’s about how you appear on several different platforms as an entity that people trust in an industry.

1. Engage Your Audience!

It doesn’t matter if you’re a cutting-edge SaaS company or a fashion brand that caters to teenagers. You have a target audience that engages on some or several platforms, and if you’re not on there, you’re not doing a good job of shaping your business image.

Once you have an omnichannel presence, you have to figure out the secret to staying relevant, which basically means you need content that is relevant to your customers. It doesn’t matter if it’s a controversial topic, so long as you’re getting engagement from your audience.

2. Be Authentic & Credible!

The idea is to be a credible and authentic source of information and even opinions as long as your audience is able to recognize you. This means your branding guidelines, identity and communication needs to remain consistent and cohesive throughout your channels and campaigns.  

One way to establish authenticity is to conduct a brand audit to see the consistency of your messaging, visuals, and tone across all touchpoints. It’s important to ensure that you don’t compromise on brand integrity and your audience interest because if you lose either, you’ll have to start again from scratch.

3. Stories Resonate With Everyone!

Several companies have made it a mission to invest in PR and branding teams that work tirelessly to craft and sell compelling brand stories for their audiences. The idea is to engage with your customer base and make them feel like you’re not just a corporate entity looking to get their money. Instead, engage with them on social platforms, post replies to their comments, answer queries, share memes and other useful content, etc.

It's all about getting those engagement metrics higher so that you get enough spotlight to grow your organic audience, allowing you to reduce your ad spend and other promotional campaign costs.

4. Nobody's Got Time for That!

It’s true. People don’t have a lot of attention span these days. Text is almost obsolete as no one has the time to read lengthy paragraphs. Which is why the most engaging content consists of visual elements. Even in these, you have to compete with so many different social platform pages that excel in grabbing attention and compelling users to engage with their posts.

To get the lion’s share of your user’s attention and engagement, present content that is relatable and engagement worthy. Several companies go about doing this through video content about their production factories, interviews with their employees, or even stories about pets that hang out at their warehouses!  

5. User-Generated Content is Forever!

The best way to automate content is to have your users generate content for you. Whether it’s providing reviews, or posting pictures or comments about something related to your industry/niche, user-generated content is the secret to automated evergreen content.

No search engine or social platform can deny the importance of UGC, meaning you’ll always find it important enough to encourage your marketers to compel users to provide content on your pages.

6. Nothing Stays the Same!

There’s no industry that remains the same all year round. Everything is subject to change and this statement couldn’t be truer when it comes to social media trends.

Staying relevant is the name of the game and to do that, you need to be consistent with your market research and post-research marketing efforts. It’s also true that you’re not always going to be ranking for everything that you try to rank for, meaning there’s always room for improvement.

Brands that develop multiple variations of the same type of engagement post do so for A/B testing their efforts and analyzing what works. This scientific approach makes it easy to gauge audience interest and develop an understanding about what makes your users tick.
