Updated: Nov 22, 2021
After entering the second decade of the 21st century, brands are facing new challenges in marketing such as the demographic dividend peaked, user growth slowed down, the popularity of fragmented reading…
Then how to do brand marketing in this new era? Gaining the trust of customers plays a vital role in it.
In the past, customers used to make purchase decisions according to their specific needs. For instance, when summer comes, people tended to directly buy T-shirts without thinking of brands. There was only one factor in the purchases decision process and that is products.
Nowadays, however, customers prefer to make purchase decisions according to brand awareness. For example, when it comes to certain products such as smartphones, the first thing people think of is the brand of the smartphone. In other words, they subconsciously narrowed their choices to a specific brand and then buy what they need. The purchase decision process is from brands to products.
As we said before, famous brands have already occupied most of the market share after decades of development, which means it is hard to gain the trust of customers for other brands by themselves. Therefore, other brands need a good platform to promote themselves.
A good platform can help brands get more attention and win more trust while Baidu is the best choice among many platforms.
