Using Social Media to Manage Your Brand
If you're not 100 percent comfortable with social media you should make an effort to learn it. Branding strategies have expanded to include smartphones and phone apps, mobile websites and mobile ads as well as social networks like Twitter, Facebook, and Ning.
Social media has one very important perspective to share with brand management - building a relationship with your target customer. Brand recognition is all about the trust and confidence your customer has in your brand. Establishing conversation and building effective relationships go hand in hand.They are perfectly suited to one another. The rules for brand messaging through new media versus traditional channels haven't changed, but the game sure got better and more interesting.
It's not enough to have a Facebook page or a Twitter account, you must participate in the conversation by making regular posts and replying to direct messages from your customers.
Monitoring social media is a must for all companies. Social media has shortened the time frame for company responses to complaints or accusations. These days, companies need to acknowledge any issues and control the messaging in a matter of minutes instead of hours or days..
Ultimately, you should be prepared to develop, monitor and constantly push your brand message in the marketplace. Your message should be simple and as consistent as possible in every marketing venue you choose to ensure that when people think of your brand that their perception is inline with your perception of your company.
