Personally, I've always believed, and also according to metrics, having a brand avatar is an important aspect of content marketing for any company. It allows for a consistent representation of the brand's values and personality across all communication channels. I find this very important especially with the Metaverse on the rise, but that's a story for another post.
A brand avatar helps to establish a strong brand identity, which is crucial for building trust and loyalty with customers. It also helps to differentiate the brand from its competitors, humanizing it, and making it more memorable in the minds of our intended demographics.
In terms of content production, an avatar serves as a guiding force for creating content that is aligned with the brand's messaging and tone. It helps to ensure that all content produced, whether it be social media posts, blog articles, or email newsletters, maintains a consistent voice and style. "The reason why Gecko is so popular is simple: he’s funny, relatable, and has a catchy tagline." says Ryan Fan about the Geico Gecko — a massively impactful avatar campaign made for Geico.
Avatars also help with the creation of more targeted and personalized content. By understanding the characteristics and preferences of the brand's avatar, marketers can tailor their content to better resonate with their audience.
Furthermore, a brand avatar can be used to create content specifically for different stages of the customer journey. For example, a brand avatar for an early stage in the customer journey may be more informative and educational, while a brand avatar for a later stage may focus more on customer testimonials and social proof.
In summary, a brand avatar is an important tool for content production as it helps to establish a strong brand identity, ensures consistent messaging and tone, enables the creation of targeted and personalized content, and can be used to create content for different stages of the customer journey.
