Businesses everywhere are recognizing that brands can’t exist on their own. They need to showcase their brand to the community in a variety of ways; from social media to getting out there and connecting with the local community. Give your brand a voice both online and in your local market with a great brand awareness strategy.
This is especially important for anyone who relies on local business and word of mouth promotion. Fortunately, there are various ways for you to be more involved with your community to build a loyal customer base, grow your reputation, increase community awareness of your brand, and do some good.
Great Ways to Increase Community Awareness of Your Brand
How does community involvement help your brand?
Engaging with your community is important for your brand for a number of reasons. Being involved in your local community helps you to build strong customer relationships and get your brand out there. It gives you the opportunity to show your brand to be trustworthy and community-minded, as well as show that you have strong values. It helps you to connect with individuals and make valuable contacts—not just for business, but on a wider level, too.
Attend or organize charitable events
One way to achieve community involvement through your brand is to attend, organize, or sponsor a charitable event. Some brands choose to connect with one charity in particular and form a long-term partnership with them. The holidays are a great time for getting involved with events, from Christmas parties to soup kitchens. As well as looking for existing events to get involved with such as golf tournaments and 5k runs, or you could organize your own in partnership with a chosen charity.
Get involved with local issues
What issues are important to your local community? Keep your finger on the pulse of what’s happening in your local community and think of what you can do to lend your support. Whether it’s through money or publicity, you could help to highlight an important issue that local people care about and in the process boost community awareness of your brand.
Sponsor a community group
There are lots of community groups you could choose to sponsor to get your name out and increase brand awareness. A recent Forbes.com article states, “Supporting community-building initiatives is an excellent way to put your brand in front of an audience.” Sponsoring an organization can include your logo on their marketing materials, banners, or uniforms. You could look into sponsoring a local sports team, community center, kids’ activity group or anything else that would work for your brand.
Community involvement during the holidays
There were plenty of opportunities with the recent holidays for your company to get involved with your local community. But, it doesn’t end there. From fighting food poverty to raising awareness of local non-profits supporting our community, the opportunities are out there and a great way to get your team and company to get involved locally.
