Building The Brand You Legacy

Build The Brand You Legacy

Build Your Brand Equity

Whether you are a baby boomer or a teenager, someone who has already got a lot of content or a newbie just getting started online, there is one thing that you should focus on if you want to build a powerful brand that will stand the test of time.  That is your brand legacy.

You need to have a vision for your brand if you want it to be super successful.

Building Brand Equity

The very best brands have lasted for many years and passed down through generations.  This did not happen by accident.  To build  a brand that will become a legacy – you need to work hard at it and be completely immersed in it.

From the moment you open your eyes each day you should be asking yourself the question – What can I do today to improve my brand and to grow it?   When Gianni Versace was assassinated his brand did not die with him.  Why not? – because it was designed to be a legacy brand.

Creating Brand Equity

  • Be consistent in your branding
  • Have key brand colours to make your brand recognisable
  • Add your social media links on the content posted with your video
  • Make evergreen content
  • Have a CTA (Call to Action) that leads to your website or other social media platforms where they will find out even more about your brand
  • Have CTAs for engagement – Ask for likes, comments and shares
  • Use your videos on your websites
  • Use these videos to build your brand across your industry or topics
  •  Content with value can play a big part in creating your brand

Increase Your Brand Equity

Always Be Authentic

You may be your audience – i.e. they may be people who like the same things with you.  The same problems, the same sense of humour, in your age group.  The people who “get you”

You can make a video about how you got started

You can make videos describing your journey

You can tell your brand story in your videos

Create a story around your niche

Reach out to people who are passionate about your brand – These are the people who can be your ambassadors

Give people a good experience while showing them how to overcome their challenges

Be consistent in your graphics, your videos, your messaging, in your language and in your engagement

Show appreciation to your audience

Reward them with value, tips and giveaways

Share advanced strategies for free

Educate, enlighten and entertain them

Create a great brand foundation to which trends can be added or subtracted when relevant

  • If your product or service exceeds your customer’s expectations
  • If you have made it very clear to them how you can solve their problems and reduce their fear or worries
  • If you are someone who really genuinely cares about providing value and quality
  • If you have a consistent brand message and voice
  • If they feel that you care

Then the chances are that you are in the process of creating a brand legacy.  You can find out more about creating a brand legacy

  1. Thank you for writing this blog about Branding and Brand Equity. I have just started a brand new website and I am very aware about what “brand messages” I wanted to send out to my audience. I have included a personal “About us” section on my website, but I haven’t branched out to making personal YouTube videos yet.
    You also said to reach out to people who are passionate about my brand. I was just wondering how will I find these people? My website is currently only getting around 50 views per day. At what point do I reach out ask them to become brand ambassadors?

    1. Thanks for your comment.  You need to be very clear about your target audience.  Find out where they are hanging out online, You should engage with those people by liking, commenting and sharing their content.  You could use a plugin such as share-a-holic (it’s free) and share your website on social media platforms.

      Always make it easy for people to reach your content,  I notice that CBIG does not leads to gravatar instead of your content.  This is a missed opportunity.  Also make use of keywords and hashtags to find your target audience.  Hope that helps.
