Internet As A Tool For Brand Building
- The first step in making a unique identity for your online business is to purchase a unique name for your website. Try to be creative and make sure to incorporate the nature of your business in the domain name. For instance, if you are in the web development field, then web development would be the key term here.
- Having different domain extensions like XYZ.org, XYZ.com, XYZ.in, etc. is a good idea. Another idea that works is to buy a lot of domain names that are keyword optimized, & direct it to your business website.
- Having SEO optimized content is very essential for featuring on the top search results of search engines. Also having unique content which is updated and added to, on a regular basis is necessary to stay a favorite of popular search engines.
- The keywords included in your content should be in such a way that the content remains meaningful. Stuffing of keywords i.e. inserting keywords randomly even where it is not required is a very unethical technique and it lowers your website rankings.
- Create company blogs, provide press releases, etc. This is an interesting and creative way to stay connected with customers. These blogs could be about your products, industry, related products, latest developments in the field, etc.
- Social networking is another way that you can build up your brand value. Create accounts in popular social networking sites like Facebook, Twitter, Linkedin, etc. Through these profiles you can target specific people who are interested in the products/services you offer.
Because of all these techniques, Internet is a very effective tool used in Online Branding
