Before the use of the internet became more widespread, it was through the print media (newspapers, magazines) and the broadcast media (TV, radio) that we get to know about the latest brands.
There were times, of course, that the people behind these brands would do a promotional campaign by making their presence felt during major city or national events, sometimes they would even organize campaigns in malls or shops or even visit homes, offices, schools.
Well, brands can still do that. But with the advancement of technology and the internet being a regular part of our life, other avenues of brand promotion should be explored.
One major avenue for brands to reach out more people is working with bloggers. Doing so means positive benefits for the brand. Here are 3 reasons why brands would benefit in working with bloggers:
More People Accessing the Net. Even way back in 2010, a CNN article noted that based on a survey, more Americans get news from the internet as compared to TV or radio. BBC News also cited that among the younger generation, time spent online has overtaken time spent on watching TV. With more and more people across different demographics accessing the net, it is imperative for brands to establish their presence online. And one major way to do that is to work with bloggers who can help these brands be seen, read about online.
Not Limited to Just One Exposure. Think about it. If your brand has an advertisement or article written about it in a magazine or newspaper, chances are no one will really keep a copy of that magazine or newspaper for a great length of time. Hard copies of magazines, newspapers, even flyers or brochures about your brand will eventually get hidden or even thrown away somewhere. But this is not the case if you work with bloggers. If they feature your brand on their site or make a review about it, that blog post will stay present online. It can continue to be accessed through time by anyone. Your brand never really goes away but stays right there will people of all ages and backgrounds and at different times (years) can easily find it. And to ensure that your brand makes the best impact to the online world, consider the services of Nancy Behrman.
More Interactive Opportunities. Should a person see a brand on a TV advertisement, they could not readily ask information about the brand nor can they give easily give feedback. On the other hand, when a brand works with bloggers, people can directly connect with bloggers to ask information or to give feedback even by way of their blog post comments about the brand. This would help the brand’s audience or market get to know the brand better as well as give the people behind the brand the opportunity to also know the brand’s impact to the market and in how the brand could still be improved. For help not only in promoting a brand online but to also make certain that a brand continues to improve its image and presence online, enlisting the help of Behrman Communications is not a bad idea at all.
Over all, for brands to work with bloggers, it can only mean a positive step forward in bringing more brand awareness and more opportunities to further improve and grow a brand.
