I admit it, I've been more into branding than into search engine optimization. When you're raised on the other side of the pond, in a country that is itself a great brand, you become a connoisseur of positioning and the attributes that make a product or service stand out. Made in Italy, as I find out every day, is a fantastic brand.
Both reference a study conducted by Penn State. We already knew that, didn't we? Remember the blind soda testing? When we cannot tell which brand we taste, we may prefer one soda over the other. Yet, when we see the label, we clearly go for the brand that resonates most in our emotional chambers.
When you take the time to differentiate yourself, communicate clearly and succinctly what you stand for, and build a solid reputation that is authentic, you will have greater influence power. That means higher emotional resonance, which translates into better results or hits. So come with me to The Blog Herald to revisit Brand You on its ten-year anniversary and join the conversation.
