B2B Marketing: Memes, Everyone? (Part 3)

Things to Consider when Using Memes

Suitability and relatability to your brand

Memes are intended to depict insider jokes. They’re usually cheeky and ridiculous and even intentionally tamper grammar for the sake of entertainment. While they’re convenient to make and something that you can personalize to match the message your business wants to communicate, contemplate whether such playful jokes suit your brand voice. Furthermore, regardless of the kind of meme you want to use, always relate it back to your brand. A study by Facebook concluded that posting about subjects related to your brand leads to the most relevant engagement. This will enable people to recognize not only the meme but the brand that has been tied to it.

Comprehension of your target audience

Remember that using memes can only be successful in your marketing if your target audience acknowledges it. So, the better you understand your target audience, the simpler it will be for you to make memes that are engaging and not offending for them.

Knowledge about the memes

Before creating and posting a meme, fill yourself in with the meaning, background, usage and implication of such meme. This prevents you from posting memes in your company’s social media pages  that is inappropriate for your brand and audience. Take for example the image meme Imminent Ned (a.k.a. “Winter is Coming”)  is used to forewarn or announce the upcoming arrival of a highly awaited product, event or internet meme. Know your meme is a website and video series that documents various Internet memes and other online phenomena, such as viral videos, image macros, catchphrases, internet celebrities and more. It also investigates new and changing memes through research, as it commercializes on the culture.

Consistency on the meme’s core components

While you can put your own twist on a meme, remember to not stray away from the original format, style, and components. A meme is basically an imitation (and are already arguably popular). Leverage on that by choosing an existing meme rather than attempting to make your own.
