With the ever-growing number of competitors entering the marketplace every day, maintaining a loyal customer base is more essential to a company’s survival than ever. Companies who build trust with clients through effective branding and consistently delivering quality goods and services have historically proven to be the victors in our fast-paced free market, and will continue to successfully weather any storm brought on by economic downturns. In this article, we will discuss the importance of brand loyalty and how you can use your reputation to build a base of loyal customers who trust you. 

Self Awareness

In order to show the public that your brand is trustworthy and worthy of  their business, you have to take the time to determine what it is your brand stands for and stick with it. Authenticity and integrity are not just buzzwords we use to fill the space on paper, people look for these things when they decide who to do business with. Brands that are out there attempting to cover as many bases as possible, and going whichever way the wind is blowing in order to tell people what they think they want to hear is not a recipe for success in branding. More importantly, it won’t sell. Everyone knows their used car salesman is in it for the money, and they tolerate it to a point because they need a car. However, that is not how any company wants their brand to be seen. In order to be a genuine brand that is worthy of the people’s trust, you need to sit down as a team and develop a mission statement, a brand image, a brand message, and a list of brand goals you want to achieve and stick to it. You would not walk on stage to the microphone without having something to say, so make sure you know what your brand is about before introducing it to the marketplace. 

Be Visible

Once you have completed your branding strategy, and are ready to get your message out there, the next important factor to consider is your brand’s visibility. Your team could possess the purest of hearts, and your product could be of the highest quality that is physically possible to produce, but if people can’t see you, or know who you are, then you will not win them over as loyal customers. A common saying we use in sales is, “Don’t tell me, show me” and this rings just as true with brand strategy.  Building a reputation through consistent branding and maintaining a presence through digital marketing are key to building trust with clients. To accomplish this, companies should be actively posting content on social media platforms, engaging with their audience, and making use of video and digital technology available to remain in sight of your potential customers. Keeping your messages relevant, frequent, and consistent with your brand will not only help reinforce brand awareness and recall, but will also show the public that your brand is the genuine article.
