Your company letterhead
Your building’s signage, front lobby and branded vehicles
Trade show or convention advertising
Promote Your Certification In The Appropriate Forums
As important as social media is to your broader marketing initiatives, its emphasis on short, impactful content means it is probably not the best place to promote your ISO certification on an ongoing basis. Instead, consider white papers, case studies and other forums where you can go into depth about the benefits it offers your customers.
When you’re sharing the release of these documents across your social media platforms, however, it’s an opportune time to utilize hashtags that note your certification. Even if a reader doesn’t proceed with reading the content right away, they’ll see that hashtag and make the connection that your company is certified. You can tag the accredited certification body too, establishing a relationship with the team monitoring that organization’s accounts.
