Melbourne, Australia (PRWEB) March 01, 2012
Is brand recognition vital for business success? Is it necessary for all entrepreneurs to establish their brand in order to gain customers? What is branding? Do you market your brand or your service? In the marketing podcast PreneurCast’s latest episode, Pete and Dom have a candid discussion about branding.
Dom shares with Pete that he recently has been shifting his focus from the business of media production to a bit more of ‘the individual’ in his own right. His goal now is to focus more on a personal brand versus the product or service he’s known for. Dom puts Pete on the spot and asks how to differentiate the two because there are some people that are ‘brands’ and people that are ‘people’?
Pete doesn’t hold back and states this is a rabbit hole with lots of tunnels coming off it. The first lesson that Pete shares with Dom is that you can’t be everything to everybody or your business will go nowhere. The goal is to be ‘boutique’ and be known as the market leader around the topic you are known for.
Pete explains what branding is and how it ties in with marketing. Dom has a light bulb moment and ties branding in with the Preneur Hierarchy, which was discussed a few shows ago. Listeners are taught how to look at their social media campaigns when it comes to direct response – Twitter and Facebook.
Another lesson that is shared with the marketing podcast's listeners is to look at their current marketing, make sure that the focus is a call-to-action regarding their product or service, and then to talk about the benefits of their product or service as a reason to take action.
