During one of my regular excursions on Facebook, I came across a post where someone was arguing to properly invest in a website and listing all the reasons for doing so.

Heck, I could have written that post myself!

And as usual, then came many responses that said more or less the same: “But what if I don’t have money?”

Read on to find out why your website may be underperforming.

A brand with individuality has a unique competitive advantage.

Think of your current favorite products or services. Why are they your favorites? What makes them different? Does anything stand out?

For example, when we think of our favorite Boutique Inn or gym, it may be its logo, the range of services, the quality of the product, the customer service, the people, or the feeling that comes from going there.

These things alone are important, but together they make your product or service unique!

Standing out can sometimes be seen as a negative, but branding is the highest compliment.

Embracing what makes you different is what makes you stand out. When you are authentic, you will exude a vibe that will attract your tribe of followers and propel you to be the best.

To stand out in today’s market, try these 5 tips:

  1. Be authentic

    • Try not to compete with other similar brands, but instead focus on yourself and your product or service.

    • Before developing a logo and website, be sure to fully evaluate your product or service and identify all the things that make your business unique so that your brand stands out from your ideal target audience. It has to resonate with them!

    • Integrate what makes you different into your branding, marketing, website, social media, and physical space or product design.

  2. Thrive in your environment

    • A vibe is a feeling that expresses your uniqueness. It is the voice of your brand. By capturing that vibe and incorporating your brand’s unique voice into all of your marketing materials, you’ll create undeniable synergy.

    • Maintain your vibe in everything you do, even your social media posts, and continually check to make sure that what you are conveying is the vibe your customer is experiencing.

    • Don’t compromise your vibe for current trends; always make sure you stay true to your brand identity.

  3. Connect with your target audience

    • Now more than ever it is important not only to provide a product or service, but also to create a community around it. This community of your ideal target audience and potential clients will become your tribe of loyal followers.

    • Like the Survivor TV show, your tribe can “take you down,” so it’s important to nurture those relationships and connect with your community in an authentic way.

    • Social media presents an opportunity to grow your tribe and future loyal customers by engaging with them in new ways. On these platforms you can create groups, pages, stories, share photos and videos so that they know more about you while you also learn more about them. This information, connection and commitment is invaluable.

  4. Strive to be the best

    • Of course, you want to be the best product or service available, but beyond that, ask yourself how you can be better. Often thinking about how you can create a memorable brand experience can help you move to the next level.

    • Provide the highest quality of service, product, support and customer service possible. It’s amazing how many brands fall short in these vital areas and lose a lot of business as a result. This is your chance to shine above them and win over these new customers!

    • Going further will automatically make you stand out. Not only will your loyal customers continue to buy from you, they will also recommend you to others.

  5. be nice

    • Put yourself in the shoes of your customers to serve them better. Unlike sympathy, which is compassion, empathy means imagining yourself in someone else’s situation. The more your potential customers realize that you “get” them and understand what they are going through, the more they will trust you to do business.

    • Take advantage of the emotional triggers of your ideal customer. What emotions drive your customers’ behavior?

    • Listen to your customers. A 2018 study by M&C Saatchi reveals how 18% of consumers stopped using a brand due to a broken promise. Are you meeting the quality and service that your customers deserve?

    • Remember and respect the differences. People of different geographic locations, generations, and genders are not necessarily going to want the same from you. By developing unique marketers, you will have a much better idea of ​​how to reach out and engage your audience by offering them relevant content and services that they will appreciate receiving from you.

While there are many other ways to stand out, these branding strategies will have the most impact.

Together with an expert, build a foundation by clearly differentiating your brand and building a memorable brand identity that you can apply to everything you do.

Its uniqueness is something that you should leverage and incorporate throughout your brand to capture your current and potential customers.

By being authentic, creating a vibe, connecting with your tribe, and living to be the best, you will certainly stand out in the sea of ​​mediocrity.
