Has your brand jumped on the social media bandwagon yet? If so, you’re probably on multiple social channels such as Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, Snapchat, Google +, and Pinterest. With so many social networks, it can be hard to manage a consistent brand and a cohesive look. Lucky for you, Adventure Ad Agency is here to help! We’ve got some branding tips to help you knock it out of the park on every platform.
Brand cohesiveness is important because you want to establish a clear message to your customers. If your pages on various social platforms do are not consistent, customers may be confused about who you brand is and what it represents. What do we mean when we say cohesive? Brand cohesiveness across all platforms refers to your layout, color scheme, logo, and message. Cohesiveness does not mean all of your social media pages should look exactly the same. They need to be unified, but not identical. Here’s why:
1. It reinforces your brand identity.
Think about a brand everyone knows, such as Apple. Their brand identity is strong because they have consistent advertising techniques. Everything Apple does displays innovation, style, and efficiency, and people remember them for these things. To establish a clear brand identity, all of your marketing efforts must exude that identity.
2. It helps with brand recall.
One of the biggest reasons to have a consistent social media strategy is brand recall. You want your customers to remember your brand, right? That comes from repeated exposure to the same material. Of course, we don’t want every post to be the same, but they should all have the same message across various platforms.
3. It makes your message clear.
Brand consistency ensures customers understand your message. If you send the same message across all platforms, it will be clear to customers what you are trying to convey.
4. It adds to credibility.
Being credible is a very important part of marketing and branding. Having a professional, consistent social network will add to your brand’s credibility.
5. It makes you stand out.
Consistent imagery, colors, fonts, etc. will make your ads stand out from competitors. It is all about making the customer think of your brand when they need a certain product, and cohesiveness across social channels can help do just that.
