It’s essential for any business to be able to create excellent graphics and photos for its company branding. With a multitude of graphics and photo editors out there, it can be a wearying experience trying to figure out which software is right for your business. So let’s take a look at what’s out there and hopefully simplify things a bit.
If you’ve seen one of Peyton Manning’s commercials for Nationwide Insurance, you’ll immediately understand the impact a jingle has on your audience. Nationwide’s jingle is catchy, creative, and above all, gets stuck in your head. In fact, it’s been memorable since 1977, and in more recent years, the jingle has evolved for newer audiences, adding elements of authenticity with its Songs for All Our Sides campaign. Perhaps most importantly, it makes it easy for the listener to never confuse Nationwide with a competitor like State Farm, which also features its own jingle dating back to the 1970’s.
One of the hardest lessons to learn in marketing is that building a brand takes time. While some lucky brands get struck by advertising lightning — e.g., TOMS, which first made headlines when it was barely a company, nearly tripling orders in one day and sparking even more news coverage thanks to its core cause — most companies have to work hard to carve out a place in their market. Even major brands, like beverage powerhouse Coca-Cola, have to build their momentum over time.
Winter is a great time to attract new patients to your practice. People tend to become more mindful of health issues in the winter because of concerns about the flu and the increase in colds. Your brand can stand out from the competition by letting people know you care about them and that your practice wants to help them and their families stay healthy during cold weather. In this post, we’ve put together 4 tips to help you reach new patients with your marketing for winter.
Instead of just buying a product, most people actually buy what those products or services can do for them—what the product or services promise the customer. So, it’s important for businesses to always highlight the promises (or benefits) of their products.
You’re all geared up and excited to finally be putting together your new marketing campaign. You’re full of great ideas—words, phrases, and slogans that you’ve heard others use, so you know they’re attention-grabbers. But is using the tried and true the best choice? Or could it be getting a little (or a lot) tried and true…and tired?
Advertising is a critical business process and a major investment for businesses of any size. Most businesses understand that an ad campaign will help promote products, raise awareness for special offers and events, and hopefully influence shoppers to choose their brand. However, it’s also critical for both the products and services as well as the brand in terms of differentiation and staying top of mind, influencing consumer perception, and improving retention and recall.
Branding is what helps distinguish your company, products, and services from your competitors. It’s a way to create a connection between your company and your consumers in a visual, emotional, and cultural way.
If you think branding doesn't really matter that much (you've got a great logo, right?), consider that when choosing between two similar products at similar price points, consumers will probably select the brand they recognize.
Some other points to think about:
Thanks to ever-evolving technology, the path to purchase has changed, and the advertising world is always adapting to keep up with it. New channels, platforms, and tools are constantly being developed, giving marketers a truly vast array of options, including some unique ones, like interactive quizzes. These quizzes may not be new, per se, but they’re vastly underrated by most brands as a legitimate way to build engagement and develop leads.
