What is Brand Generated Content?
Wouldn't it be amazing if you could have your own customers encourage conversations about your company?
Did you know that user generated content brings the trust value to your audience?
Brand generated content is produced by your customers. It is voluntary and gives authenticity to your marketing.
Its very affordable as your customers are providing the content for you.
It can be a testimonial, product review or a video. Instagram and YouTube is also a platform for showing real people (a brands customer) communicating how they use or interact with the product of service.
Giving the audience a reason to interact with your brand in the form of a contest, awareness campaign, or a partnership with a charity can increase customer engagement.
Many brands use pets in their campaigns. You can’t go wrong with a photo and a story of a cute animal. It creates emotional bonding.
Perhaps you sell cat accessories. Having cats in videos using a scratching post brings user interaction and authenticity to your product. It makes your products more humanized than just a product description and a flat photo of the product.
Asking users to show their experiences with your product or service gets the conversation going.
Writing case studies are a great example for B2B businesses to show how valuable their product or service is. Case studies provide real life examples of how their company helped a customer. Use facts to back up your claims, but always tell a story. Your audience will be more enlightened.
