Marketing Tips

 

Marketing a Corporate Advertising Specialties and Promotions Business

You're heavily invested in the success of your corporate advertising specialties and promotions business and failure isn't an option. That means you'll also need to invest yourself in the strategies and techniques it takes to effectively market your brand in the marketplace.

Still looking for a way to effectively market your corporate advertising specialties and promotions business? Unfortunately, there is a fine line between capturing buyers' attention and blending into the background.

Purpose in marketing is the key to success in this space. High-performing corporate advertising specialties and promotions businesses achieve market dominance through the careful execution of deliberate strategies. The inclusion of innovative tactics and techniques is important, but the consistent application of sound marketing principles may be the most important factor in raising your brand's visibility with buyers.

Promotional Calendars

Sloppy marketing programs have no place in growing corporate advertising specialties and promotions businesses. A strategy chocked full of time-sensitive ad placements and other tactics can devolve into a tangled mess of overlapping deliverables unless it is coordinated in a promotional calendar. Good calendars include not only tactical deadlines, but also schedules for the inputs (e.g. staff assets, vendors, etc.) that are required to execute strategic objectives. Consumer mailing lists from a respected provider can add value to your calendar by incorporating geographic and demographic consumer data into your promotional schedule.

Hiring A Marketing Firm

Eventually nearly all corporate advertising specialties and promotions business owners consider outsourcing their promotional and advertising functions to a professional marketing firm. Unless you have a marketing background, you won't be able to touch the ROI you'll receive from a professional firm. Once you decide to hire a professional marketing firm for your corporate advertising specialties and promotions business, the first thing to look for is marketing experience. Avoid young marketing firms staffed exclusively with inexperienced hot shots. Novice marketers bring a lot of passion to the table, but they also tend to embrace high-risk marketing strategies that lack the payoff you'll get from an established firm.

Give Word of Mouth Marketing a Try

Industry-leading corporate advertising specialties and promotions businesses rely on a certain amount of word of mouth marketing buzz to communicate brand values and product messaging.

As a rule, your marketing strategy should include mechanisms that encourage meaningful brand conversations and spread the good word about your business. At the same time, you need to be wary and vigilent against potential negative word of mouth regarding your company and take appropriate actions to combat a negative buzz.
