Yes, the last decade and mostly the Internet development has changed the way businesses are run- on a huge scale. Consider for example marketing and visual design – previously, we only had print and media – newspapers, billboards, TV commercials, and we were mailing out brochures and sales flyers.
That was offline marketing, and that was all you can do to create more awareness.
Today, the Internet opens us a whole new world of opportunities for marketing products and services, such as social media, content marketing, influencers, e-mail marketing and much more.
What do you need to be seen?
A cohesive brand, both online and offline. Businesses that want to get the most out of their marketing efforts should design a unified strategy that combines online and offline activities to create a seamless brand experience – visual design, tone of voice, colors, patterns, etc.

The development of a well defined brand voice is one of the most crucial phases in building unified branding both online and offline. Simply defined, your brand voice is how your company communicates.

You want people to pay attention to your brand when it speaks. You also want people to understand your brand, which means it needs to have a clear and memorable voice.
Know your audience, find your voice and talk it out- both online and offline.
