Branding strategy - optimization is needed

Overview

Company many thoughts. Thoughts on how to better present your own products or services. Thoughts on how to optimally communicate the added value. You deal with the target groups, who buys what when and why.

However, when entrepreneurs ask what they invest for their personal reputation, they often just shrug their shoulders and ask, "Why? Do I need that? Is something wrong with my reputation? "These questions alone give an answer as to whether one is aware of one's own reputation - and what one actively (or unconsciously) does against it.

Invest in CEO reputation

Overview

Other entrepreneurs think they are too small for reputation. Small and medium-sized companies in particular can benefit enormously from the positive reputation of a CEO.

A single tweet can damage the reputation of a CEO today, and thus of the entire company.

7 Reasons for Leadership Branding Strategy

Overview

As a result, investing in the reputation of both is a strategic survival decision. Because only when the reputation of this personality radiates long-term, shines also the corporate capital.

1. Image is short-term, reputation is long-term

Overview

Image is a snapshot people have of a business. It is "the picture that I make myself".

Through active communication, image can also be set up relatively quickly. Reputation, on the other hand, is the reputation generally enjoyed by the CEO and his company in the environment.

2. Reputation of the CEO - always an overall picture

Overview

That is, it is the totality of impressions and images, of experiences and relationships.

Therefore, one of the biggest mistakes is believing that short-term actions can "iron out" a CEO's reputation. Of course, such efforts have an effect, but people usually forget very quickly.

3. Good CEO reputation only works in the long term

Overview

Conversely, if an opinion is first taken, it will take longer for people to revise it again. This effect is well observable, especially in the run-up to elections. Many politicians then rely on precisely such short-term measures.

Once the candidate has been elected, the communication and reputation work is usually quickly neglected or discontinued. A mistake that often takes its toll at the next election. The voter remembers the reputation much more clearly and less the temporary election activities.

4. Analyze the personality of the manager

Overview

As a strategic factor, the reputation of the CEO must also be planned. It is by no means an individual matter of a person. To be able to create a communication strategy requires first a fundamental analysis - logically first the personality of the CEO and then the personality of the company.

It should be noted that absolute authenticity is decisive. Anyone who tries to stage a show and places more on wishful thinking than on authenticity, will quickly realize that the community usually sees through this sooner than later and, of course, explains it publicly accordingly. CEO reputation is not an ego show!

5. Invest sustainably in the CEO reputation

Overview

A good CEO reputation is worth gold. Even if, first of all, time and money have to be invested. What would be the consequences if the CEO and / or the whole company suddenly become content of a shitstorm on Facebook? Or many smaller ones: What if someone searches for the name of the CEO and reads two very negative comments about the company in Google?

Any potential new customer will, after reading these pejorative posts, consider very well whether he really wants to contact the person or company. By the way, in times of increasing skills shortages, however, a crucial and important aspect: The good reputation of the CEO also has an effect on the recruitment of new employees.

6. Storytelling - fascinate with good stories

Overview

Especially in SME companies are often found owners who were once very good skilled workers. Of course, this is welcome, because if you have learned everything "from scratch" you can often fall back on your experience.

A small side effect has the whole thing: skilled workers want to convince by their good work or the good product. They usually do not put themselves in the spotlight and tell no stories of how this product or service was created. But it's exactly these stories that customers want to hear.

7. Good CEO reputation protects

Overview

This is where the danger lurks: if a company does not pass on these stories itself, others tell them. Whether they vote or not is another matter. CEO reputation is always a certain protection against crises. But it is like so often in life: Before it does not really hurt, you rarely go to the doctor.

And sometimes only mitigation will help. In many other areas, we all invest in insurance, just in case. So why not here? Even if no crisis is foreseeable, a positive reputational structure will be very helpful - not only in a crisis situation.
