Branding lessons can be found just about everywhere once you train your brain to pick them up. Just recently we saw this TV commercial and I had to share with you some great branding lessons you can use for your business.
Here are three lessons you can use in your business if you are brave enough…
- The Pig – Right away the pig walking on a leash is a shock because how often do you see a pig on a leash? In marketing I call this a pattern interruption. We would expect to see a dog on a leash but not a pig and that interrupts the pattern. They even point out how shocking it is to see a pig on on a leash in the video…just look at this kids face. What can you do in your business to create a patter interruption?
- The Music – I am sure they had to pay some royalty fees for the right to use the song, but you can research a number of Royalty Free Music sites on the internet. We had the intro to our podcast created on Fiverr using royalty free music.
- The Video Story – Video is hot right now. How could you recreate a video that tells your story like this for your brand image? Take notice of the various angles in the video shoot. This adds to the suspense and intrigue..
The bottom line is this…are you playing it safe with your personal brand or are you willing to be authentic and stand out?
