The Quickest Way to Deliver your Brand Message

To communicate a brand message effectively to your target audience amidst the business crowd is the quest of business owners. There is a constant need to convey your brand value proposition and express what makes it distinct from others. The brand message is something which can enable you to achieve this need. It brings together your product/service and your brand communication message and aligns them to your value proposition.

In line with the above, we can conclude that brand message is the value proposition of your brand which you disseminate to the selected audience through your brand identity. It is the message about what you do and how you do it differently from others. For instance, Nike’s “Just do it.” Is not just the tagline, it’s what Nike is all about. It communicated its values and encouraged various levels of sports through various ad films, motivational posts, and celeb athletes’ endorsement.

Your brand message encapsulates your brand promise. It is drafted considering your brand’s internal perspective (what the brand can provide), your customers’ and prospects’ perspective (what the customers/prospects want to hear), and the competitors’ promise (what the competitors are already providing). The culmination of these will help in the creation of a great brand message.

Second, because they can easily be shared on social media sites such as Facebook and Twitter, they have a tendency to go viral, which extends your brand to a wider, untapped audience.
