    • What Defines Your Brand?

    • Your Brand – Online vs. Offline
      Offline, your brand is:
      Static
      Easier to control
      Less adaptable
      Online, your brand is:
      • Dynamic
      • Less Predictable
      • More adaptable
    • Why does your online brand matter?
      92% of consumers have more confidence in information they find online than they do in information they receive from sales clerks or other sources. (Wall Street Journal, Jan 2009)
      97% of consumers use the Internet to research products or services in their local area (Kelsey Group, March 2010)
      79% of smartphone consumers use their phones to help with shopping, from comparing prices, finding more product info to locating a retailer (Google & Ipsos OTX, April 2011)
      Whether you are doing business online or offline, potential customers are searching for your business to gather relevant information before they make a purchase.
    • Your Online Brand: 3 Considerations
      Consistency
      Do you have a consistent look and feel?
      Visibility
      What percentage of the SERP’s do you own for branded searches?
      Sentiment
      What are consumers saying about your brand?
    • Brand Consistency
      Potential customers searching for you online are seeking information about what your business offers, what they can expect from you, etc.
      A consistent brand makes sure that you are answering these questions the same way on every online platform you use.
      This includes both written messages and visual cues (graphics/logos/color schemes).

      Considerations for Getting Started
      Start Small: Simple graphical customizations to your Facebook profile photo or Twitter background can go a long way.
      Plan Your Message: Different social media platforms have different character limitations. Craft your primary message so that it can be broken down into smaller snippets (150 words, 50 words, 25 words).

      Monitoring Your Online Brand
      Facebook
      If you are the owner/admin of a page, you are eligible to receive an email from Facebook every time a user posts or comments on your wall.
      Twitter
      Twitter will alert you via email when one of your followers mentions you on the site.

      An additional tool for monitoring your online brand: Google Alerts
      Google Alerts are email updates that alert you when a specific phrase is indexed by Google.

      Considerations:
      Creating a plan before an incident arises is the best way to ensure proper response (to both positive and negative feedback).
      Who will respond?
      What types of responses are appropriate?
      What is the goal for timely response to brand sentiment issues?
