Hi all,
My exchanges with designers this morning reminded me of this Imran Amed from Business of Fashion video about the basics of brand awareness creation.
To summarize, the video outlines

  • the necessity to have a good knowledge of your target customer in order to offer the adequate product
  • The necessity to make the brand story resonate with your customer. It should convey who you are, why it’s unique, why it matters.
  • The necessary alignment between the 4Ps (Product, Price, Place and Promotion).

In terms of promotion, Imran Amed reminds us how essential it is to have good images, since even if a new brand will probably not be able to afford advertising, those can still give an excellent image on social media. Meanwhile a good press relation management is vital.
You have to create emotions to make people share. Prefer Instagram and Facebook to share your social media content.
