How do you want your brand to be perceived? Sure, you may have a fancy logo, but your brand is more than that. Depending on the audience you would like to target, you may want to portray your brand as caring, fun, innovative, knowledgeable etc. These feelings need to be created in the content you post, so that consumers can also feel those emotions while looking at your brand. Create lasting impressions with your audience so that they feel special, and not just like any other consumer. When you grow these relationships, the image behind your company grows to new levels where trust is built.
