Being a relevant brand in the digital age
A new study of the communication, digital marketing and public affairs consultancy, LLYCexplained that it should be understood that the digital medium is a space where brands and people are related, where before people only saw a logo, now they also observe values.
That is why the research indicates that for this connection to take place, the content must be key, and even more so for those brands that aim to incorporate the younger audience into their ranks.
“A point to consider is the importance of understanding insight, that hidden truth within all people or social groups, which when touched by some message or concept, makes the person react for better or worse. For this reason, these insights are considered the only way to stand out or achieve a greater preference of the public towards the content that is transmitted”, reads the study.
Likewise, LLYC details that the current digital landscape makes us aware that today’s public is more demanding and fragmented.
“The multiplatform should be taken as an opportunity to be able to have larger contents, and that, at the same time, be sub-composed of many others. Entertainment plays a fundamental role here, since all the pieces of communication must be aligned, not only to respond to a specific insight, but also to excite users to follow the content of the different platforms”, he adds. .
Finally, the specialists detail in the investigation that it is necessary to have a balance between “privacy and personalization”. “We are in an era of brand rapprochement, where advertising is tailored to each individual and not to a majority. Users are not so averse to handing over the data they are collecting if they know what it is going to be used for, especially if they are in control of being able to delete it. Therefore, the obligation and the current mandate of the brands is to generate experiences keeping intact the privacy of the collected data”, says the study.
And this is how it is currently understood that the digital medium is the ideal medium if you want to carry out an effective communication strategy that allows brands and people to have a more direct relationship, establishing a constant and recurring connection between the two.
