1.Your followers really want to know the people behind the brand.

They want to get to know who is responsible for the brand concepts.
Don’t underestimate how interested consumers are in the people behind the company. They want to know what drives them, what they like, what they don’t like. They want to evaluate whether they like the people in your company.  When you share the stories of the people within your company, their jobs, how they conduct the business, you are showing your customer, your people matter to your brand.

You become more that a company selling a product. You are a company interested in people and ready to make lives better.

2.When your brand has news, runs an event, receives an award,

releases a new book, conducts some research, anything that the company does outside the product, tell that story. Again, your story builds the brand for the customer. You become multifaceted and memorable.

Don’t shy away from getting your followers involved with your company. Carry them along. Let them feel a part of the company, and that their opinion counts. Strong brands, make their customers a part of the story. Without your customers you have no brand. So include them.

4. Let fans and followers know that you are in tune with popular culture

and incorporate it into the brand and your social media content.

House of Fraser did this neat thing on Instagram around the same time Facebook introduced reactions on status updates. Perhaps it coincidental. But it was time relevant. It used a simple concept like emojis, that everybody uses, to do a video on one of the most popular relationships of our time, Prince William and the Duchess, Kate. How current is that?

Be current. Be in tune with what is popular.

Have a look at the House of Fraser’s video below. We think it’s pretty cool.

5.Have in-depth industry knowledge and share it with consumers.

Be informed and help others to keep to up date with the industry. Informative content is very useful in helping bring value to your customer’s life. A brand doesn’t just deliver products and services. It aims to add value.

6.Another great way to add value to consumer’s lives is to be motivational.

Inspire them to live better lives. Do videos, or poster quotes which are incredibly popular these days to motivate social media users and potential customer.
