Create an Unbeatable Marketing Strategy
Whether you’re handling your business’s marketing strategy in house or you have an agency doing it for you, creating one that is not only successful but also resonates with consumers can be a challenge. There are many different platforms and tactics that need to be considered if you want to cultivate a strategy that resonates with your target audience. All of this can be overwhelming and cause even the most seasoned marketers to overlook some key concepts when developing a strategy. Below are some “secrets” to creating an unbeatable and unforgettable marketing strategy.
Make Your Messages Personal
Personalization is one of the basics of successful marketing and one of the most effective ways to retain customers and keep a loyal following. Personalizing your messages gets prospective customers to trust you, and it establishes a bond between your brand and the customer. In the age of automation, it can be especially difficult to create a marketing campaign and strategy that is personalized to each individual consumer. When you’re writing content, have a clear idea of who your target audience is and add in personal touches that can appeal to the majority of readers you are targeting. Another way to personalize your marketing strategy is to take advantage of social media. Since social media allows you to interact with each user individually, your messages are already personalized with little effort.
Don’t Forget to Use Images
Yes, copy is very important, but it needs to be in conjunction with relevant imagery. According to the American Marketing Association, people process images faster than they do text. So while you may have written a stellar blog post, it really won’t make as much of an impact on the reader if there are no images. Using powerful images in your marketing strategy can go a long way, especially with social media. Posts that contain pictures are more likely to grab the attention of users and get them to be interested in your brand’s message. Regardless of the channel, consumers are more likely to remember your brand when your messages contain eye-catching imagery.
Solve Problems for Consumers
Consumers ultimately look to businesses that provide solutions and ones that can make daily tasks easier. For example, you can write how-to blog posts, create user-friendly mobile apps and send e-newsletters or reminders to your customers that are helpful and informative. As long as the content and tools are relevant to your brand, they give consumers a positive and lasting impression of your brand.
Leverage Your Employees
Your employees should be your biggest brand advocates and supporters. While this should not be a secret, it is an approach that often gets forgotten simply because of the time constraints and various tasks that business owners face on a daily basis. However, setting time aside for your employees gives you an edge when it comes to promoting your brand. When they are motivated and genuinely happy in their roles, they are more likely to participate in community outreach programs, promotional events and other scenarios that allow them to show their commitment to your brand.
