3 Ways to Enhance Your Corporate Image Online
Here are three different ways to do your part to take control of your company’s online image branding:
1. Website Appearance
Oftentimes, your business website is the very first impression it will make on a potential client. Therefore, it needs to be dynamic and responsive to attract the naked eye. It should also represent your brand as an industry leader willing to share tips, tricks, news and/or resources to make the lives of your target customers better somehow. The most effective way to do this is with a blog… which you should update with relevant, fresh content regularly.
2. Thought Leadership
Does the content you publish on your website and blog and share on social media read like an ongoing commercial? Or, is it educational and informative, actually bringing something to the table to enhance the lives of your target audience? If it reads like spam, most people will “delete” you. So, instead, use various online avenues to publish content that will enhance your corporate image as a thought-provoking, industry-leader.
3. Engaging Social Media Presence
Your brand must have a social media presence these days. However, it’s does no good to have a dormant LinkedIn or Facebook page or accounts you use only for promotions on occasion. Instead, you should be posting regularly on the social media networks where your target audience can be found. You also need to interact and engage with those audiences on a regular basis. Also, don’t forget to use the arenas to push out content that’s relevant to your industry/niche, and valuable to your audience.
