How Do We Get It Done? Building Reputation, Producing Results.

The single most important factor in any marketing campaign is reputation. Without any reputation surrounding you, your product, or your company, it’s pretty difficult to produce decent results. There are 4 steps to build your reputation.

  1. Understanding your market
    Your market is the main group of people who are going to buy your product or service. These are the people you will interact with the most on your social media pages, blog and website as well as target your ads towards.

    • Market Research
      Profiling your market by figuring out where they interact, their demographic (location-based profile), their psychographic (personality-based profile), how many of them are out there, and how much money they have. That would create a basic Market Profile to work with.
  2. Creating Your Brand
    This is the look, feel, sound, and flavour of you, your product, or your company. By creating your brand you will create a consistency that everybody will recognize as being yours and will build trust with your community.

    • Brand ID
      Your Brand ID is how your brand is displayed to people. This includes your logo, envelopes, letterhead, web banners, fonts, colours, and tons of other visual elements that help form consistency with your brand.
    • Brand Messages
      These are the keywords and phrases that will be used consistently when speaking as your brand building more trust with your community. Which transitions smoothly into the next subject.
  3. Living Your Brand
    Anything you do as your brand outside of things directly related to your work will reflect on your brand and then on how people see your work. There are many ways outside of just doing your job that you can help build your brand and yourself how you want to be seen.

    • Setting Yourself Up As An Expert
      There are a number of ways you can do this, it all comes down to your preference how you go about this. You can hold classes and teach people how to do what you do. If there are competitions, participate in them! An award goes a long way when it comes to convincing someone you’re an expert.
  4. Interacting With Your Community
    Listening to your community is the most important step to having a long and fulfilling relationship with them. Take their advice and read all of their reviews, respond to them, and tell them why you do what you do. By paying attention to them and making them feel important they will stick around, building your reputation even further.

    • Easy Ways to Communicate
      Using social media it’s easier than ever to interact with your community, use these tools to your advantage. Read and respond to posts on your Facebook page, share content you think aligns with what you’re doing. Social media allows you to be more personal than before with your community, building a commitment between you and them.
