Building a Strong Brand Ethos Through Social Media

Building a Strong Brand Ethos through Social Media

In today’s increasingly competitive business landscape, developing a strong brand ethos has become more important than ever. Creating an ethos is more than just a corporate vision or mission statement, it’s the very identity of a company. Developing a strong brand ethos builds loyalty among customers and employees alike, by conveying everything a company stands for and believes in. Social media plays an increasingly critical role in creating and fostering brand ethos. It’s simply too big of a communication tool and an audience to not leverage properly. In this article, we’ll explore some strategies small or new businesses can employ in building a strong brand ethos using social media.

Consistency Is Key To Building Brand Ethos:

In order to build a strong brand ethos across social media channels, a company must ensure that its message remains consistent in all its communication efforts. The company’s values, mission, and principles should be at the core of every social media post, tweet, or share. Consistency is crucial in the branding process, which means that all color schemes, language, and imagery should be standardized across all channels in order to establish brand recognition. The tone of your posts should always match the personality of your company. If your company is playful and light, don’t post anything too serious or formal.

Be Authentic and Transparent:

Customers prefer to engage with companies they can trust. Be transparent with your followers and don’t shy away from talking about what goes on behind the scenes. Share stories about your team’s hard work, client experiences, or anything else that gives people an inside look into what it’s like to work for your company. Customers feel more connected to companies that offer a human touch, rather than another faceless business entity.

Brand Ethos Provides Value:

Your company’s social media account should offer value to the followers who choose to support you. This means sharing content that’s useful or entertaining – content that your audience can’t find anywhere else. This could come in the form of an informative blog post or a funny meme, depending on your business goals. The best way to build loyalty is by going beyond selling a product. Speak to your social media followers about what your product or service can do, share authentic success stories from other customers that they can relate to, and create a space where your followers can engage with the community.

Respond Quickly:

A fast response helps to build trust with your audience and can differentiate a company from its competitors. Save social media interactions and reach out to your customers regularly. This means that comments, direct messages, or even complaints don’t get ignored. It is okay to make mistakes, but showing up and making things done can help your business score a credible image.

Keep Your Eye On The Data:

Everything you post on social media will generate data that you can use to inform future strategies. Pay attention to which posts generate the most engagement, what time of day you get the most traffic, and which channels are the most effective for reaching your audience. Use this to tailor your content and strategy in the future. By using social media analytics, you’ll also be able to determine success metrics for your brand’s ethos-building campaign.

Building a strong brand ethos is an imperative process for any business and social media is at the core of this process. Consistency, authenticity, transparency, valuable content, and speedy responses are the five pillars of an effective social media strategy that can help you establish your brand’s identity while creating brand awareness effortlessly. A strong brand ethos cultivates a loyal community of customers, and that loyalty is worth its weight in gold! Take advantage of 98 Buck Social’s social media packages to get the job done.

What photos or videos do you use?

By default, we can use the photos you have on your website as well as utilizing the plethora of photos available to us within our royalty free library.

If you have photos or videos for us to use, depending on your subscription, we welcome you to upload them into a Google Drive folder and share that link with us!

Looking for custom videos?  Some of our plans include videos or you can add them to any plan starting at $98/mo!

How do you mimic my branding colors and style?

As mentioned above, depending on your plan, we can use whatever you’d like to provide us! If not, we’ll resort to using your website or our royalty free library.

That being said, we can come up with custom graphics that suit your branding style as an add-on to your posting subscription.

$98/month for 3 custom graphics each week
$148/month for 5 custom graphics each week

Note: The cost of custom graphics is on top of your monthly subscription cost

What is content review & approval?

Content review and approval is where your social media content creator sends you a weeks worth of posts, prior to their designated publication time the following week.

This way, you will have the chance to give us feedback on each post in case you’d like us to make a minor edit.

Note: One round of editing per post permitted, depending on your plan.

What are the results I can expect from your posting services?

The idea behind consistent posting onto your social media pages is to keep them active with content that promotes your business solutions, educates your audience to showcase your expertise and to also keep things lighthearted, it’s social media after all!

There’s nothing worse for a business than to earn someone looking into what you do, only for them to see a barren social media page. To them, it may appear that you are out of business or potentially a scam.

We are often asked about growing followers and generating sales or leads. These are great goals to have but please understand that those goals are better obtained through paid advertising campaigns.

For more information on paid advertising, please visit our paid advertising services.

Do you use a posting scheduler and how do you get access to my business pages?

We are fortunate to be partnered with CloudCampaign.com to utilize their excellent scheduling platform.

By signing up for our content services, we will set you up with your own Cloud Campaign workspace depending on your plan.

During onboarding we request admin access to your social accounts using a secure platform. This allows us to manage the occasional disconnect when the platforms push out updates.

Furthermore, with your own workspace you are welcome to view and edit content at your leisure!

Why do my posts say “Posted by Cloud Campaign”

We use Cloud Campaign, which is a 3rd party app, to scale social media management and posting. When a post says “Posted by Cloud Campaign”, it is only the admins of your company page that can see this and not your followers.
