1. Content

 According to Nick,

Your content is your brand’s core online.

And it is the most difficult part of any campaigns. With so much content available on the web, writing unique content is challenging.While you simply cannot come out with unique content every day, it really is not too difficult. Some subtle changes in your writing pattern helps. This post can help you to improve some of the writing.

Basically, identify what your brands is associated with and find some keywords. Ensure your content is around that. That would give your brand it’s identity on the web.

2. Conversation

Second, you will need to proliferate the content and do not miss the part of being ‘social’ on social media. You can’t just broadcast content and sit back. Converse with individuals in your line of business, make yourselves heard.

Quick Tip: Have an opinion!!
