We understand that marketing and promotion is a vital area for businesses and also one of the greatest challenges to get right. Business is simple these days, if you cannot get your message across and what your business stands for, you will struggle to generate enough income. You may have the best team of people, a product or service that is outstanding, but without a clear plan of marketing, then it count for nothing!.
There are many ways to market your business, advertising is one of them and probably the easiest method to promote what your company does. Advertising can be expensive and you will need a marketing budget to fully explore what is required and how to maximise your investment. Generally an advertising campaign will only yield a small percentage of interest that turns into a sale or enquiry. Your marketing campaign will have to be scrutinised and the numbers accounted for if you use magazines, newspapers or radio adverts.
Another option is use to use social media if you don’t have a large marketing budget. Most social media networks are free to use and they can spread the word about your business. Social networks such as Facebook, Instagram and Twitter are superb tools for creating your brand and showcasing what your business or company can do for your potential new clients.
To gain the best results using social media you will need to spend building up rapport and interacting with fellow users. Social media is an excellent way of getting feedback for your business and vital if you want to move forward with your company. One of the main drawbacks of using social media is the amount of time you will need to spend in creating your brand and interacting. If you do not have the budget to employ someone to do your social media work, then do try and check the networks every day.
We believe that one of most important ways of boosting your businesses image and brand is through word of mouth. Attending workshops, trade shows, conventions, networking events and co-working spaces are a fantastic way to meet potential new clients. Just by having a face to face conversation you will gain trust, generate a buzz and will build relationships that will have a positive effect. Think how cool it will be to hand out some personalised drink bottles or promotional drink bottles at a trade fair and these will have logo and website address on them! This is where we can help you at Promotional Products Advertising and create a selection of branded products just for your business.
