The importance of digital branding is significant as it reflects on you, your business and what product or service that you offer. What the digital brand of a business means is everything that can be seen online about your business. Your logo, your website, social media accounts and emails are all examples of your digital brand. They include all the following elements and components – words, imagery, logos, videos, look and feel and voice.
Brand consistency is important in communicating your value proposition to your target audience. Having a strong digital brand means the difference between your potential customer choosing you over your competitor. This is why your digital presence must be consistent and stay on message at all times.
Consistency across all platforms
Whether it be your website, social media accounts or emails, consistency needs to be seen across all touch points.
Your website is the key element of your digital brand. By having an effective website, this helps to build trust and create engagement with your target audience. Therefore, a well designed website needs to be consistent with its messaging, colours and imagery and optimised with keywords. Additionally, a great user experience must be delivered so it makes visitors take action and buy your product or service.
Social media is a major part of your digital brand. This means concentrating your efforts on the social media platforms that your target audience uses. From Facebook, Instagram, LinkedIn, Tik Tok, Pinterest and Etsy, there are multiple social media channels to select from. Each platform is different so managing your digital brand presence on the different social media platforms requires skill and expertise. The way you engage with your audience needs to be consistent and provide education, value and purpose.
Digital brand management extends to email marketing and communicating to the database of your target audience. The emails that are received by your subscribers needs to be designed and written in a consistent way. People who subscribe to your email list have signed up for a reason. This is your best opportunity to communicate your value and offerings as part of your digital brand.
Advertising on social media platforms like Facebook and LinkedIn requires a particular skillset. Therefore, in order to get the most out of the expenditure you put into the ads, you need experienced individuals that know a thing or two about social media!
