Hello, I’m Jim Glover, That Branding Guy, for Once a Day Marketing™. Today is Smart Monday, and we are going to discuss brand awareness.
Many companies feel that their product is for everyone and they should market to everyone. The reality is that awareness is not the main element in increasing brand strength; how relevant your product is in the minds of your customers and how your brand resonates with them is far more important.
In today’s environment, we are moving toward an increase in niche marketing and customization to create top of mind. For example, Nike enables customers to go online and customize running shoes. They can select color, style and even have their name embroidered on the shoe. Nike is moving more toward customization and creating, in that case, a market of one.
Increased customization is something to strive for in your business which leads to creating brand relevance and resonance. Consider how you can create niche or customized products that target a particular group, or even a market of one. If you are able to achieve greater customization, when you advertise it will be very relevant to your customers and resonate with them. As a result, customers will specifically seek out that product or service.
