4 Ways to establish a solid brand awareness

Brand awareness represents how familiar your target audience is with your brand and how well they recognize it. Brands with high brand awareness are generally referred to as “trending,” “buzzworthy, or simply “popular.”

Brand awareness among your audience and the general public doesn’t happen overnight. It also doesn’t happen from a simple advertisement or marketing campaign.

Establishing brand awareness is valuable when marketing and promoting your company and products, especially in the early stages of a business.

Here are some ways to establish a solid brand awareness foundation and make a lasting impact with your audience

Be a person, not a company.

These are the traits your brand should determine and promote about itself. To leave an impact with your audience, you’ve got to define yourself as more than a company that sells stuff. How else would you define yourself? What words would you use if you had to introduce your brand to a new friend?

Socialize.

To raise awareness of your brand, you’ve got to be social. Post on social media about things unrelated to your product or services. Interact with your audience by asking questions, commenting on posts, or retweeting or sharing content you like.

Treat your social accounts as if you were a person trying to make friends, not a business trying to make money.

Tell a narrative. ( this is story telling)

This is an incredibly powerful marketing tactic, whether you’re marketing products or promoting your brand. Why? Because it gives something real for your audience to latch onto.

Crafting a narrative around your brand humanizes it and gives it depth. And weaving this said narrative into your marketing inherently markets your brand alongside your products or services.

Make sharing easy.

Whatever your industry, product offering, or marketing strategies, make it easy for your audience to share your content. This could be blog posts, sponsored content, videos, social media posts, or product pages. It doesn’t matter what it is, as long as it’s shareable.

Brand awareness is about impact.

It’s about interacting with your audience in ways that don’t only ask for money, participation, or loyalty.

Online Marketing Strategy Elements: Excerpt from Instagram Live session

Missed the Instagram live session on online marketing strategy elements with Sam? Don’t worry, we’ve got you covered.

Here are notes put together by a participant from the Online Marketing Strategy class


– Having an online presence for your businesses shouldn’t come with a reason for competition race, the pressure to use the platform or proof that you are now online, there should be a driving goal.


–  The Goal of Business X and Business Y might be different from Business Z. Failure to execute with a goal will rub on your  focus, energy, progress and result

– Knowing who your audience—and ideal customer—is and what they want to see on social is key to creating content that they will like, comment on, and share.

– It’s not advisable to choose a platform where your audience doesn’t operate. Knowing the exact platform for your ideal audience gives you the key to knowing which platforms you should drive your marketing activities highly not neglecting all other platforms


– There are many ways to talk about who you are, what you do, and why people should choose your brand over your competition. ( This is where your brand messaging comes in)


– You Communicate your brand consistently and effectively through every piece of content you make.


– A good end of your plan is to put an effective and proven channel to work. Here, is to consider the appropriate available digital marketing channels or assets that will fit into your strategy

How To Pay For Facebook Ads with Nigeria Debit Card

Running a Facebook Ads with Nigeria Debit Card wasn’t easy in the past; we all started with the use of conventional dollars account provided until users started to encounter debit card decline messages.

I remembered when these issues started, I had to resort to the use of a friend’s dollar Mastercard to initiate ads on Facebook before the breakthrough via a third party company “PayU” arrived.

Running ads with your naira debit card is still effective especially to those who are facing the same issue but it would require a setup carried out on your the desktop version of the Facebook page. If this is carried out successfully, you can initiate your ads via the mobile app, the Facebook/ Instagram page or the Facebook ads App

So, here is a quick guide to help business owners who want to run ads but need a Facebook Ad account that accepts naira payments.

Let’s Get Started

Sign in to your Facebook account.

  • Go to your Facebook Ads Manager payment methods page and click on “Add Money“. (You can navigate to the settings icon on your top screen of the Ads manager page.- Once you are in the settings page, click on “payment option”)
  • Select “Naira Payment With Mastercard and Visa – PayU”.
  • Enter the amount you want to add to your Facebook ads account and click “Review Payment”.
  • Click  “Make Payment”.
  • When this PayU page shows, click “Continue“.
  • You will be redirected to the PAYU page where you will be asked to enter the details of your Mastercard or Visa card. Enter the card details and click “Pay”.
  • If your information is correct, a one time pin (OTP) will be sent to your approved bank number or email9dependg on the option you choose). copy, paste and finish your payment.

COVID-19: 5 Ways to Do Smart & Responsible Marketing

There are ways to achieve Empathetic Marketing during a crisis like that of Coronavirus disease (COVID-19

It’s important that brands address the issue with tact, empathy, and mindful marketing.

Empathy-based marketing is about walking in your customer’s shoes to understand their experience and how we can better help them get what they want. You don’t want to think like the customer. You want to BE the customer.

Here are guidelines your content can adapt or used during these challenging times.

1. Audit what you have currently running.

Make adjustments to your marketing campaigns and scheduled content timelines. Decide what should be paused, prioritized, audited or created

2. Create helpful content.

Your brand can still provide value to people, even if your product doesn’t directly help folks deal with the quarantine.

Let your content be in the position to entertain, inspire, educate, & inform wisely,

3. Evaluate imagery and messages your brand Is sending

Images with social gatherings, handshake, hugs etc. will need to be changed except they correspond or connect with containing the spread.

4. Leave the epidemiology to the professionals

Taking a clue from Mark Ritson, The wheel of industry need to keep turning, let’s leave the epidemiology to the professionals and focus on our core work.


Don’t capitalize on the crisis, keep people informed, don’t create fear or cause panic and remember to mind your tone.

 5. If what you do supports or enhances people’s lives while being quarantined, tell that brand story.

Yes, on the same level of empathetic marketing, your content has to carry that aura of connecting well to your target audience. A product or service that might be of benefit to the current situation will not only increase your brand visibility but position your brand as that who came to help when they need you most.

It could be a sanitizer, face masks, wall cleaner, a telehealth services or any other offering that is essential at this challenge times, don’t hide them or drop them on your audience face. Show them in the best way around an inspiring and helping story.

Remember: The Quarantine Won’t Last Forever

We wish everyone health and safety during this unusual time.
