Most businesses understand that having a strong social media presence plays an important role in the success of their marketing efforts, but some businesses are still having a hard-time leveraging social media platforms to build their brand. In order to achieve goals on social media, it is important for a business to maintain a consistent brand voice and presence because that is ultimately how the brand is perceived by your customers. Here are three easy ways that you can establish consistency across all digital platforms:
Keep everything uniform!
This is extremely important when it comes to consistency. You want to have the same corporate identity across all your social media platforms. Use the same logo, colours and even description in your bio to make sure that your audience does not get confused, and that you are easily recognizable.
Choose your brand voice
Your brand voice is a very important aspect when it comes to building relationships with your audience. It reflects the core values of your organization and communicates the personality of your brand. Define your unique brand voice by imagining it as a person. What would that persons’ qualities be? Once you have identified your brand voice, be consistent with it! Using the same voice across all your platforms and content creates a brand experience for you audience.
There are many reasons why consumers visit your social media pages – it could be to respond in a positive or negative way, or to simply do some research. So it is vital for you to interact with your audience on your pages, to post frequently and to stay relevant in your posts and shares.
With that being said, being consistent in anything in life requires proper preparation and commitment. Make sure that every person that is part of your social media team is well-trained and understands your brand and its identity. Once your business is noticeably consistent, you will start to attract an audience that trusts you and that feels comfortable using your service or product.
