What Is Sonic Branding? How To Effectively Use It?

Hi there, hello there! How are you guys doing? We hope that you all are well and are also having a great time reading our blogs and making the most of them too. Earlier this week, when we were working on our content plan, we decided to add in a couple of topics that will be beneficial for our diverse audiences and that is why we are here with something super unique and different to share. If you guys are running a business of your own or are associated with a business, then you would find this blog super insightful as we are about to talk about what sonic branding is and how you can utilize it to run the show. But before doing that, we would like to take a moment to thank you, guys, for your constant support and for also encouraging us to keep creating the content that we love to create. We would love to see more of that happening in the future as well.

Okay so, sonic branding refers to the kind of branding in which the businesses incorporate audio to create brand recognition. It can also be music or other relevant sounds that can be used to communicate with the targeted audiences. In easy-to-understand words, sonic branding is the use of sound or music – just like the use of visual design elements (for example; logos, typography, etc.) to develop the brand identity. And like visual design elements, sonic branding has to be consistent to create a strong brand identity. We must also mention that frequent changes in the sonic branding can confuse the audiences and we know that you would not want that to happen.

Sonic branding is super effective when used properly and efficiently but it is also important to see if it works for your business or not. Here, we would like to mention that we understand that businesses would want to check out a trending branding method or technique to see if it’s working for them but also know that not every trend is for your business. Also, do not feel left out if you cannot incorporate something into your communication because you probably don’t require it.

Anyways, coming back to the point; let’s talk about what falls under sonic branding and how you can make the most of it. We urge you to keep reading the blog till the end to know more and decide better for your businesses!


Sound Effects:


When it comes to sonic branding, brands can work on unique sound effects (with copyrights, of course) to use them for their communication on conventional media platforms, digital as well as social media platforms. We must also mention here that the brands need to ensure that the sound effects their concerned teams are working on are aligned with the overall brand identity (otherwise, their hard work, time, money and other resources will be wasted).


Brand Sounds:

Brand sounds are also referred to as jingles that are solely created for a brand to use in their communication. Since jingles are very versatile, they can be used literally everywhere from TV commercials to digital and social media posts as well as paid advertisements. The best thing about brand sounds or jingles is that they are super easy to remember and recall too and if they are catchy enough, people would not mind singing them too. Do you know what that means? That means that you have done a great job with your brand sounds.




Sonic branding involves the use of audio and music, right? This also covers voiceovers which are not only great for conventional (TV), digital and social media platforms but can also be utilized on radio as well. Also, if you are thinking that people do not listen to the radio anymore, then you would want to research to see what we mean.

In addition to the above-mentioned components, brands can also incorporate ambient sounds into their branding to evoke certain kinds of emotions such as happiness, excitement, nostalgia, etc.
