What is Brand Positioning?

This awareness of your competitors and your use of that knowledge to distinguish yourself from them is known as brand positioning. Your business is competing against a large number of others for the attention of the same prospect. That means you have to set your brand apart in your specific market in order to earn the attention and trust of prospective customers.

Differentiation cannot be an afterthought, it’s should be the very essence of a business. The business model, value proposition and marketing strategy of a company should be informed by differentiation.

Position Your Brand Well in Your Market

Establishing the presence and standing you want to distinguish your company from your competitors requires an intentional plan, time, and effort. 

Do Your Homework

The foundation for your brand positioning strategy is a deep, intimate knowledge of your company and your ideal customer. Who exactly are you, and what do you offer? What do you stand for and value? What makes you worthy of choosing over your competitors? How do you want to be known by your customers?

What specific problem are your customers trying to solve? How do they phrase this question when they look for solutions online? If you can’t answer these questions, how can you expect to reach prospects and earn their business – especially when other businesses in your market are willing to do the work?

Once you lay this foundation, you can focus on building a brand positioning strategy that identifies you as an expert worthy of your prospect’s trust. 

Be Memorable

There is so much that goes into positioning your brand well. Your visual presence is one of the first things prospects see and that will attract them to your brand. Is your website clean, up-to-date, and easy to use and navigate? Is your visual branding (logo, colors, fonts) clean and appealing? If it’s been awhile since you had things updated, it might be time to consider rebranding to help your brand be distinct and memorable. 

Be the Expert 

The meat and potatoes of brand positioning is your content. It’s where you get to take the attention you’ve earned from your prospective customers and turn it into a belief that you can help. Through your content marketing, you can take the questions, needs, and concerns of customers and provide answers. 

This is where you have the opportunity to really outpace your competitors: helpful blog posts that address concerns they might have; video tutorials that make it easy to see how your product or service works in real life; podcasts that allow you to have more of a conversation with brand partners, other industry leaders, customers, etc. The more value you can offer prospects in the form of this content, the more likely you are to stand out in your market.

Be Generous

This content positions you as an expert in your field. But it offers no good to you or your audience if it just lives on your website. Once you have created this valuable content, it’s time to share it. While your website serves as the hub for your content, channels like email, social media, and digital ads serve as the means for distributing it. This is where knowing your ideal customer is important: where are they most likely to spend their time, and what will they be most likely to respond to? 

Be Worth Talking About

Once you’ve earned the trust of your customers, it’s critical to be exceptional in tangible ways: your customer service, the results you provide, your communication. When you serve your customers well, they are delighted, and they will want to talk about you. They’ll tell your friends, they’ll share about you on social media, they’ll mention you to an acquaintance at the park, they’ll gladly write a review or testimonial about you online.
