As a small business, it can be hard to compete with other companies. This is especially true if you don’t have the resources for a major marketing campaign that costs a lot of money and brings a lot of business to your door. But the key is to use your strengths wisely.

Small businesses can be more flexible, and they can cater to customers in different ways. A lot of people prefer people to faceless corporations, and you can make that shine when you create your brand.

Branding is the best way to use your strengths most effectively and develop a personality for your business. This is a great marketing technique that will make your company more memorable and allow you to grow your customer base and reach new heights.

A Great Brand Name

Every great brand starts with a name. If you’re a sole proprietor, this can also double as your name. But as you’re essentially selling yourself as a brand, it’s important to focus on other aspects of your marketing strategy.

On the other hand, if you choose to pick a different business name, it helps to be creative and think about what would appeal to your target market. Your brand name should be memorable, but not too obscure or strange that it doesn’t reflect your business.

It can also inform your logo and slogan, which are further steps to a memorable and interesting brand.

Visual Marketing

Speaking of logos, if you want your brand to get stuck in people’s minds, you should think about visual marketing.

For example, if your products are packaged in plain cardboard boxes, they won’t stand out. But if they are packaged professionally, attractively, and in branded and well designed boxes, they will be far more attractive to a potential customer.

The same applies to small things, like custom stickers that add a professional touch, to branded vehicles that advertise your business to everyone on the road. 

Social Media

If you want your brand to be interesting, you should think about its personality. People buy from people, and they warm to a person they can interact with. 

Brick-and-mortar businesses benefit from a great sales patter and the ability to chat to potential customers. But you can replicate that in the digital world by using your business website and social media to push your business forward.

Social media is a great tool for all kinds of marketing strategies. You can use it to communicate directly with your customers, which is an incredibly powerful way to learn about them and conduct market research. You can even joke with people and develop this brand personality.

But you can also use social media marketing to be informative and helpful. This adds value to your account and endears people to your business. Post regularly and add content that people are interested in. This might include events in your local area, charity efforts, information about your niche and promotional deals.
