About new products or traditional brands -- tell your story concisely, consistently, interestingly.

Brand building expert Brian Dobson says companies should tell their stories in the context of news, not overburdened with platitudes. Stick to the fact about your products and services.

Start-ups and medium-sized companies should be aggressive in brand building programs to gain market position by utilizing news stories when competing against larger companies, said Brian Dobson of DobsonPR.com in announcing 5 Tips To Brand Building Through News.

"In communicating do not oversell. Crystallize words into sound bites and do not use a paragraph when a sentence will do," said the brand marketing expert. "How your brand or service is perceived is how it will be defined," said Dobson.

Dobson, a former journalist for Dow Jones and Reuters and who headed PR at two public major consumer products companies, said, "Companies should tell their stories in the context of news, not overburdened with platitudes. Stick to the fact about your products and services."

He added, "Effective message delivery has to appeal to tough minded editors and producers, who discard self serving stories. It takes years to build a brand but poor continuity and lack of consistent messages can disrupt a brand's effectiveness when communicating through social media or traditional outlets of TV, radio and print media in moving key messages."
