Social Media

The brand strategy and digital capability intersection has huge potential for  digital marketing your business and changing the ways you choose to present both your content and your offering, and there is a huge scope to excite and impress ever savvier consumers using digital technology. Audience segments specific messaging is possible because of social media and this should be exploited to the hilt, to address the interests and concerns of individual segments if relationship building is to remain authentic and be sustained. The brand strategy and digital intersection here provides the axes of the message – the what to the who and digital marketing capability enables carrying the message. People are critical to maintaining this flow. Employees must be completely clear on principal brand architecture elements and be able to communicate in the brand voice and in alignment with the brand’s positioning. This takes time, but in the quest for resonance, it pays to invest with in this process with a long term view in mind.

Content

Your content should ensure that you stand out and is in keeping with your positioning. All communications should dovetail and be in the voice your customers are learning or have learned to expect from you. As well as brand building, content should be used to educate, entertain and above all reinforce the brand benefits and values that customers will recognise as aligned with the brand personality. This makes blending brand strategy and digital capability a worthy concentration for brands intent on growing.

CX

It’s interesting to reflect that there is no practice stream that we deal with that does not have CX as an integral part of improving and embedding, whether it is for positioning or for processes! In the case of Digital Marketing, it’s necessary to understand all the points of the customer journey and all the points at which your target segments engage with, communicate with or otherwise consume outputs from your business. This allows insights into where to reach them and what messaging – relationship building, information providing or marketing, to provide at every stage.

Defining a winning brand strategy is something many companies are realising is critical so you are far from alone in looking for partners to help. Iconify teams’ key goals are to help you gain clarity on your company’s core strength, vision and evaluate the current business and operating environments in order to realign processes to match purpose and vision and create a roadmap to amplify brand love, power and loyalty.

Branding Methodologies

When we start discovery to define a winning brand strategy, we begin by using the brand values and identity lessons to start to create a visual framework for depicting and representing the psycho-graphic case for your brand and its products.

Our branding methodologies also  seek to honour your customers by understanding who they are and what your brand means to them on several levels, and how reinforcing these themes can propel more customers to buy in to the brands products, which act as bulwarks for when the brand is navigating choppy waters.

Using our STORI framework, we’ll help you work out how to make your customers feel valued, to ensure your business doesn’t get lost in an increasingly congested market.

We will reframe your brand story and what your offering means to your customers and if your brand makes them feel valued, using our STORI framework.

Communications and Strengths Converge

We exist to build brands. We want to create the next generation of iconic brands in all categories. Brands that are resonant, have attitude and swagger and really speak to their target market. In a highly commoditised environment, almost nothing is new, except perhaps in the world of emerging tech – more on that here.
But if almost nothing is new, differentiation assumes ever greater weight and positioning becomes pivotal; your business will live or die literally more or less to the extent that it is possible to find a position for it in the mind of your tribe. A great product has value but that value is ascribed by the position it occupies in the mind of the people to whom we seek to attract.
That leads to the next point and of equivalent weight – the ‘goodness’ of/in your offering ultimately comes down to perception — so it’s subjective — so it is predicated on what the target segment you are targeting feel about, see and receive the offering. How well your offering fits them and their ideas about the world they inhabit. Make no mistake, most people are never sharing the same reality as the next group of people. This more than anything, determines the degree to which the attributes that make your offering ‘great’. Call us, let’s create the next iconic brand. 0208
