Short Yet Complete Guide to Humanize a Brand


Having grown up on the internet and social media, Gen Z and Millennials are generations who have been deeply immersed in technology for most of their lives. They do not see brands as just an addition to their knowledge; rather, they back their beliefs with brands that reflect their needs and habits.


One of the most drastic changes in business over the last few decades is the fact that viewers are not falling for nameless, faceless brands. They prefer brands that they know, like, and can easily relate to. This is the core reason that differentiates the best brands from the rest.
Now, what does this mean for the brand? It means adding a personal touch to the brand. We call it “humanizing” a brand; meaning interaction with a brand feels the same as interaction with any human.


Read on to get cutting-edge insights and guidance for self-expression and personalization in your Branding, to bring in more business easily.


1.Create Great Experience


A brand is not only selling an idea, but more than that, it is selling an experience to your potential audience, and for these audiences to connect with your brand, they need to feel something. It’s the curated, planned, and refined interactions that make a brand stand out. Consider buying from an Apple store and the feeling you have about it. It has not happened by accident. Brands take time to analyse and consider how it feels to experience their own services. It shows that the majority of the audience relies on brands that are human, relatable and more user-oriented.


2. Use Personalization


In today’s world, people resonate with those who are friendly, warm, and engaging. Whenever possible, using humour, honesty, and emotion can build a sense of reality around the brand. And, in this era, it’s not necessary to sound too automated or inhuman when selling your brand – people respond better to brands that feel more humane. According to PWC around 53% of the audience considers Brand value before making the decision in favour of the brand. It shows that a brand that is human, original and relatable is highly supported.


3. Offer True Value


Over the past few years, there has been a significant shift in the perspective of the audience, and now they want a unique experience and transparency from brands. Clearly, the audience supports brands that add value to their lives. And, when it comes to maintaining a brand, it is better to understand the real pain points of your potential audience. Additionally, providing personalized value shows that the brand is aligned with the needs and habits of its audience.


4. Avoid Sales Schtick


Nowadays, entailing people into giving a few extra pounds doesn’t work anymore, as they can easily anticipate manipulative behaviour and may go off the brand. There are extensive brands in the business which has led to massive competition and it is easy to analyse if the intentions are not genuine. Hence, a brand must be oriented toward its values, and those values should guide daily interactions and engagements. When an audience feels cared for by a brand, an incredible experience is born.


Undoubtedly, it won’t happen overnight. A lot of work goes in to make sure that the audience doesn’t see it as just another brand jumping on the latest trend. Your brand’s perception is a never-ending journey that requires you to understand what you want your audience to believe. It takes work and attention to grow a brand.


And remember, it all starts with Humanizing!
