A scenario that unfortunately many business owners certainly know: A budget will be spent on advertising materials, however the success of these materials can not be measured accurately. Complicating this is that the promotional activities are often not perceived by the entire audience. No wonder, with today’s flood of advertising.
Some advertising media, like brochures have disadvantages compared to other forms of advertising such as radio or TV advertising. Both types of advertising require the attention of customers to get into their heads and memorize the concept.
As you can see, standing here are now two problems: People generally have little time and especially little desire to absorb all forms of advertising and on the other side there is so much of it that it is even difficult to get out of. So what to do to reach people and yet to draw attention to your own company? “Very easy: attract attention and make people look at the advertising and feel the message.” Like so many things in life, this is easier said than done. Companies often lack the time to thoroughly deal with the issue, which in turn makes it difficult to arrive at an optimal solution. It is with a little know-how neither particularly difficult nor necessarily expensive, a company manages to develop great advertising, which makes potential customers aware of not only themselves, but the concept itself that also remains in memory.
First of all it is important to define itself as a company:
- Who is the company / Who does it represent?
- What target / who are the customers interested in the company’s products ? Which target group should the ad address?
- How do the biggest competitors advertise themselves? How to stand out from the crowd of your own business?
- What’s the added value to the customer, the company can already offer solely by the ads? / How to bring customers to actually buy your products?
Even if the advertising is meant to attract attention of course, is not helping the company if the advertising does not fit it’s image or can’t be made to look very closely in touch with it. Therefore, it is recommended that the typical colors and shapes as well as the logo that represents the company, contribute as parts of printed advertising.
But no matter how the advertising fails or not, the company should give the potential customers through advertising, the added value of it’s service or product. This means that, one should emphasize on what differentiates him from competing firms and why a customer is best kept in-house. This can be achieved, with lure for the customers, in the truest sense of the word, as a company can attract it’s targeted buyers with promises or even small free offers. To be successful with this and all other relevant advertising strategies you should ask first of all what could move you as a customer to purchase products or to take services just from this company.
