How to Apply your branding to content

Brand your posts! But how? Make sure you attach personality traits, a person or certain catchphrases to your brand. Afterwards add these same traits and catchphrases to your posts as hashtags and within the content caption if possible. Furthermore, make sure to add these brand assets in the content that the customer is viewing. This might mean an end screen that features a few of your brand assets or a logo in the top left corner of your post design.

When planning a content campaign you should keep in mind that you will need or use a healthy amount of your brand assets. Make sure these are up to date and ready to go before you start with your content strategy.

Lastly, Do not over-brand your content. Especially in certain markets, like the luxury space , it is preferable to be more subtle and nuanced with brand assets. We implore you to have a talk with your branding expert at the start of every content campaign. We make sure to have a thorough chat with the brand manager of every brand we work for. Make sure your online content branding aligns with the companies branding.

The answer to this question is different for every situation. However, it in general comes down to: how often you post and what platform you are using.
To get straight to the point I will provide you with a short over view of posting schedule guidelines for businesses as of september 2022.

  • On Instagram we recommend minimum; 3 Feed posts per week. 1 story post every day and 1 Instagram reel every 2 days.
  • On Facebook we recommend minimum; 1 Feed posts per week (Preferably video) and 1 story every day.
  • On TikTok we recommend minimum; 1 TikTok video every 2 days.
