There will come a time in the life of a business that the need for extra promotion, advertising, exposure and digital marketing becomes more obvious than in previous times. If the business is in the middle of a boom or perhaps going through somewhat of a lull, there are various ways to fix or boost this sort of period with some sound elements that will attract the attention and the spend of the public. If not done quickly enough, it could mean the difference between make or break for the future of the business, whether it is big or small.
Facebook and others
A good way of getting your business in the minds and eye line of the public out there is increasing its digital presence. Social media advertising is a good way of going about this, using platforms like Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and others to really tuck into the everyday lives of the average and above average online customer. Because they will just be a click or tab away from making a move, it will be easier to get them act with some really sound wording and picture placement. In the end, it will all be about the call to action, which will prompt the customer to follow through on the thoughts they might be having about buying this or that.
The nature of the copy and the complementary imagery will need to be conducive to spend. It can’t be too long and boring. It has to be entertaining and attracting, effectively insisting the person on the other end of the user experience buys something from you. It might not be a physical product, it could be a service rendered, but they must be lured into the sale. If your product is relatively new or obscure to describe, then you or a professional hired by your will need to know who to get around this potential obstacle.
Remember, in this day and age words need to have one or more pictures alongside them. People and their short attention spans nowadays need to effectively ‘read’ pictures as well as words. The two go hand in hand. So don’t be caught short on this front. A lack of pictures and a mass of wording could have a really bad effect. There are some quite fickle markets out there, with loyalty tough to come by and keep, so don’t give it reason to look elsewhere.
A nifty way to achieve good marketing on Facebook and others is to run contests, offering readers products in exchange for purchases or bonuses for whatever reason. You will need to think about the right mechanism for the giveaway, ensuring you get bank for your buck somewhere along the line or perhaps even accept that the competition will be a sort of loss leader in the hope and anticipation of bigger business down the line. Others have done this before and done well with it too, so there is no real reason you should not try it too.
