Introduction
As a business owner, it’s important to stay ahead of the curve. Profit is
equal to hard work and a whole lot of exposure. In today’s ultracompetitive
climate, the business world is more cut throat than ever
before. While the competition is definitely fierce, there are plenty of
things you can do to make sure your current customers will stick
around, and that potential customers will become life long patrons.
Anyone can sell a product or service, but it takes a special, strategic
plan to sell your wares or services in a unique way that no one will
forget. You really want to WOW your customers and other businesses,
so that you’re ahead of the game and have a unique branding
strategy.
Branding is what makes businesses stand out. Terms like Kleenex,
Xerox, and Whiteout are all household names, but it is because of the
branding that their parent companies have worked so hard to establish
that we equate them with every day items, regardless of the
manufacturer.
Branding helps give your business its own personalized identity, and
will help to ensure that people automatically recognize your company
and its products. This is what larger corporations have depended on to
make them money. But how do you go about branding without
overdoing it? Or, how can a business effectively use branding as a way
to WOW the customers, and crush the competition?
Doing well and making sales is not good enough to become a dynamic,
over the top success in business. As a company and business owner,
you should want to go above and beyond the call of duty and really
WOW people with your company’s mission statement, marketing
techniques, products, and most importantly, customer service.
Excelling is definitely possible with some out of the box thinking and
tactics. Simple changes can make a huge difference in the way you
look at your business and in the way customers will respond to your
advertising. First and foremost, you must define your business and
decide what it is you stand for, what you represent, and how you will
make money. Defining your brand and your company is absolutely the
first and most essential part of success.

Next, solid communication tactics need to be developed. Here,
communication means advertising, special offers, and email or mailed
newsletters. It also means how you are perceived by others via your
website. You will also need to market and promote your products and
your company. All of these elements combined should be fine tuned to
your company’s identity, and with what your customers want. Utilizing
the Internet to the best and most effective ways possible is also a
must.
If you can get creative with the things people are looking for in
businesses today, you can easily change the perception of your
company through not only your customers’ eyes, but through your
own eyes as well. Here are some insightful and helpful tips, tricks, and
tactics to help five your business the WOW factor:
1. Professional looking and professionally functioning websites are
essential. Don’t simply use a template-style, generic website to
sell your products. Today’s Internet savvy shoppers know what a
polished website looks like, and they are much more likely to
buy from them. They also know what a generic, unimpressive
one looks like, so make sure yours is professionally done. Make
it easy to navigate and make it look good so people will be
attracted to it and want to make a purchase there as well as
return at another time. Also, ensure you have a reliable hosting
company to reduce downtime, which will result in lost sales.
2. Come up with a creative tagline. Many companies use taglines as
a method for people to remember their name. For example, the
cereal Wheaties is known as the “breakfast of champions.” The
breakfast of champions part of the brand name is simply the
brand’s tagline, but it is widely recognized and makes that
particular type of cereal stand out.
By creating a tagline, Wheaties has developed something
unique, and something that will stand out in peoples’ minds.
Brainstorm a few taglines of your own until you find one that
really defines your brand or your
