Ensuring your brand is recognizable to potential customers, no matter where they find you, is one of the most important parts of building a loyal audience. If the messaging a customer receives from your brand on Instagram differs from the messaging they receive in their email inbox, how can the customer trust what your brand is trying to say or sell?
