Go Behind the Scenes

Beautiful photos of finished projects and big events are great, but there lies value in letting your audience see the inner workings, and sometimes imperfections, of your company.

Fun, light-hearted, BTS shots of the planning that goes into big events or projects is a great way to dabble in the trend of behind the scenes marketing. Today people want to feel a connection with your brand, kind of like they are in on something or that they know a secret.

Video

Text is cool, photos rock, but with the ever-growing popularity of video, it’s practically a no-brainer that you should find a way to incorporate it into your marketing toolkit.

Put a face to the brand. Dance. Ask questions to your audience. Add music. Experiment and show results.

Sky’s the limit, but keep in mind: Content should be of good quality and entertain or help.

Interact Thoughtfully

I  get it: you’ve got a great product or service and the world should know and love it. But face it, as awesome as your brand is, it alone is hardly ever the focus of constant attention.

Consumers continue to gravitate towards authenticity and have a keen sense of detecting when a brand is not keeping it real with them.

Don’t  be the brand that never interacts.

Stay abreast in current events and industry trends, look for moments to draw your audience in with thoughtful rhetoric or interesting, informative news.
