While social media has technically been around for about 40 years, it wasn’t until after Facebook launched a little over a decade ago that companies began paying attention it as a powerful tool for marketing. It used to be that branding would be focused on print media, broadcast ads and newsletters (email and flyers). The addition of social media meant that companies now had another way to connect with their consumers.
Brand consistency across all marketing touchpoints is a challenge for every company, let alone each social network. How do you make sure that you’re writing in a similar tone in your email marketing, one that matches your brand’s vibe in TV ads? How do you differentiate between how you speak to those two audiences, if at all? How do you ensure that customers can recognize your brand even if it’s their first time seeing you on social media?
A brand is more than a logo or set of colors, and its so much more than a cover photo. A brand is how you make your customers feel, and it’s built by taking a consistent approach across every interaction they have with your brand. We’ve written this guide to help you uncover strategies to ensure a consistent brand across multiple social media networks.
