Whether we want to or not, human beings have a tendency to personalize brands. In the age of social media, this is easier to do than ever before! When people want to interact with a brand, all they have to do is open up your preferred social media platform, type in a handle, and instantly they can see whatever you want the world to know about what your business is doing at that very moment, and why they ought to care.
Human relationships, likewise, are built on the concept of empathy. Empathy is the process by which we put ourselves in the proverbial shoes of another person and feel what they feel. Empathy is what allows us to identify the needs of other people and helps us to come up with solutions for them. It’s easy to see how this can apply to the world of business.
The purpose of any business is to solve a problem for your customers. If you’re unable to put yourself in the shoes of someone else and understand their problem on an empathetic level, how could you possibly ever solve it for them? The best, most trusted brands are the ones that know how to solve their customer’s problems because they have either been there themselves or choose to empathize with them and place themselves in their customer’s shoes.
When you connect with your customers on an empathetic level, you build a relationship based on trust. Your customers will be able to know that you aren’t merely seeking a quick buck – you want to provide them with real, long-lastingsolutions. Be it skin care products, food, digital services, or any industry you can think of, empathetic marketing can be the difference between just another face in the crowd, and a brand that your customers will enthusiastically support and even recommend to others.
The most successful brands in America and around the world all share one thing in common – their empathetic understanding of the clientele they wish to serve, and the ability to use that understanding to provide service and solutions.
