At Proximity, we believe that the key to unlocking success in today’s competitive business landscape is not just about selling products or services—it’s about building meaningful connections with your audience. One powerful way to achieve this is by infusing your company’s personality into your marketing messages.
Building Emotional Connections
People don’t just buy products or services; they invest in experiences and emotions. When your marketing messages have personality, they become relatable and human. This human touch builds trust and emotional connections with your audience, fostering loyalty and long-term relationships.
A Proximity Marketing Case Study
For those of you that have had the pleasure of working with us, you know we are a light-hearted group of marketers that enjoy working with each other and aren’t afraid to poke fun at ourselves. We try to interject that fun, laid-back and slightly sarcastic personality into our content – like our recent 80’s themed holiday greeting and client appreciation gifts.
Heading to JCPenney’s portrait studio donning our obnoxiously 80’s themed outfits, we struck a few awkward family poses. There was plenty of blue eye shadow, hairspray and weird face touching – but zero regrets. This amazing photo session allowed us to create a holiday card and email greeting sure to make everyone laugh out loud.
And for our current customers, we built an 80’s themed gift box, filled with nostalgic candy, games and toy
How did our holiday creative and gift go over?
“Just had to say – everything about this was great LOL.”
“Ya’lls Christmas Card is AMAZING!!! It made my whole day!”
“Thank you so much for the AWESOME box of candy! It has sparked many memories, conversations and has brought about many smiles in the office this morning.”
Why Personality Matters
In a world saturated with marketing content, standing out is more crucial than ever. Imagine your company as a person—what traits, values, and quirks make it unique? By expressing your company’s personality, you create a distinct identity that sets you apart from the crowd. This identity becomes the heartbeat of your brand, resonating with customers on a personal level.
How to Infuse Personality into Your Marketing
Define Your Brand Persona: Identify the traits and values that define your company. Are you bold and adventurous, or perhaps quirky and humorous? Your brand persona should align with your target audience and the essence of your business.
Consistency is Key: Ensure that your personality is consistent across all touchpoints—website, social media, emails, and even in your products or services. Consistency reinforces your company’s identity and makes it easier for customers to connect the dots.
Engage and Listen: Actively engage with your audience on social media and other platforms. Listen to their feedback and adapt your personality to meet their evolving needs. A two-way conversation builds a community around your brand.
Whether you’re talking about your products, your philanthropic efforts, your business community involvement or just sharing merry holiday wishes, let your company’s personality shine in your messages. It’s not just about what you sell; it’s about the story you tell and the connections you create.
