What’s In A Name? 6 Unique Ways To Brand Your Business

The majority of purchase decisions are based on emotional response, not pricing.

What Yummy Cupcake’s Customer Service Can Teach Your Small Business

When your company turns ten years old, it’s cause for celebration. And what’s a birthday celebration without a (cup)cake?

That was the thought process when Susan Payton, the rockstar owner of Egg Marketing ordered and sent Yummy Cupcakes to loop in team members like myself from afar into the festivities.

The problem? The United States Postal Service didn’t quite get the message that this party needed to be enjoyed in a timely manner or else (like any good party that goes on for far too long), it’d start to rot.

Using Tone In Your Marketing Content Starts Here

On a recent trip across the country, I piece-mealed my travel between a few airlines and I was struck by how different brands use tone across their content.  Tone gives products or brands a personality that people can relate to while simultaneously communicating the brand itself.

For example, T-Mobile’s irreverent tone enforces a rebellious brand and the company’s marketing further communicates through its copy, promotions, and graphics. All align to say, “T-Mobile is not like big cell phone carriers. We’re different. We’re rebels. Choose T-Mobile and say no to big mobile. Be a rebel like us.”

Southwest Airlines is another example of effective tone; from the billboards on the way to the airport, to the wheelchairs in the terminal, the king of the low-cost carriers has a clear tone that personifies an accessible brand takes care of traveler’s simplest needs. And if you fly with them often, you come to expect their cheeky statements and clever puns.

Bridging the Gap Between Customer Service and Excellent Branding

Branding goes much deeper than a catchy logo, its use of typography, or even having an attractive color palette. In fact, it evolves from places we don’t always think of as branding.

When it comes to brand building or rebranding, customer service is often the last and most ignored piece of the puzzle. Neglecting customer care is a huge mistake and a missed opportunity to attract and retain customers, differentiate the business and strengthen brand loyalty.

As tireless as the line “customers are the lifeblood of a business” goes, not one company can avoid interaction with their clients. In fact, how a company handles this communication can make all the difference in its success. It can either increase the reputation of a brand or create a permanent damage on all levels.Bridging the Gap Between Customer Service and Excellent Branding

10 Years in Business: Beating the Odds

Tomorrow’s a special day for us at Egg. It’s the day we celebrate being in business for…wait for it…10 years! We’ve beat the odds, and come out better than 96% of small businesses. That’s huge.

Happy 10th Birthday to Egg Marketing

When I wrote my first press release for a client in 2006 (who I found on MySpace Classifieds, by the way), I was looking for a way to make money until my next job. But after a few more projects, I realized: this is what I wanted to do. I wanted to help small businesses who couldn’t afford to hire full-time marketing staff to attract customers. I’m proud to say that we’ve stuck to that mission.

A lot’s changed in 10 years:

  • I finally gave up trying to design my own logo and website. Hooray delegation!
  • It’s not just me turning the wheels of this machine anymore. I now have three amazing writers and one kick-ass editor.
  • We’ve stopped doing PR and focused solely on content and a smattering of social media.

The Secret? Advanced Planning

People are busy, so for those who don’t plan events for a living, they might start planning a given event just weeks before. Don’t do that. While certainly the bulk of your promotion should be right around the event, you actually need to start months in advance, depending on the event.

Start by developing a marketing plan that includes:

  • Specific blog posts you’ll write about the event and topics related
  • Content calendar of social media updates. Get heavy in promotion in the weeks before event
  • Press release
  • Advertising

Why Marketing Opportunities Matter

You never know where your next customer will come from. You might strike up a conversation in the grocery store, exchange cards, and end up getting a call from someone who wants to write you a check. It might happen at a conference. A party. That’s why I am always open to marketing opportunities.

Why Marketing Opportunities Matter

 

Recently I was interviewed on the Franchise Gator blog. I don’t receive a ton of interview requests, so I try to honor them. And I’m glad I did.
