At first thought you might feel that cool packaging or design is enough to draw attention to your product or service, and it is indeed one aspect of building awareness for your brand. But. It’s the least active approach. You’re hoping that the adventurous consumer will gravitate to your offering because of your nifty look alone. You’re a wallflower looking for a dance.
Compare that to the brand that actively communicates to its audience. This brand isn’t a wallflower, it’s the DJ. This brand is introducing itself and always delivering fresh pieces of brand information. This brand will outpace its competition because the consumer knows more about its offerings and are less likely to choose one they have never heard of. Simply put…the consumer buys what he/she knows best.
Don’t take my word for it. Pay attention to your own buying behavior. You’ve read reviews online. You’ve watched a unboxing or walkthroughs on Reddit. A friend said, “You gotta try this”. You attended an event and discovered a new favorite product. My point is this. Had the brand chosen not to be present in any of these scenarios, you would never have chosen their product. They chose to make their brand proactive. They chose to say “Hello.” And in the end, this is what will get you more dances.
