Marketing Tips

 

Marketing an Alliance Church

Marketing plays a central role in any company. But when it comes to an Alliance church, your ability to market your brand can be the deciding factor between barely making it and achieving stellar industry success.

We see marketing as the great equalizer, a business discipline capable of dramatically increasing a small company's footprint in the marketplace.

Top performers habitually integrate sound marketing concepts with market demands.

Why Branding Matters

Branding isn't just a marketing buzzword. It's a core concept for businesses trying to entrench themselves in consumer consciousness. Any and every Alliance church has brand characteristics. Some brands struggle to achieve recognition with consumers while others seem to be quickly embraced by the marketplace. Although the competition for market visibility may be fierce, a branding initiative can quickly scale your promotional footprint to compete with anyone in your geographic or demographic market sector.

Measurement & Evaluation

Performance is the ultimate measure of quality. You can improve the quality of your B2B and B2C efforts by considering professional mailing lists provided by established vendors. That's just one of the ways Alliance churches may be able to increase the impact of their marketing tactics. However, there are no substitutes for measurement and evaluation mechanisms. A robust measurement and evaluation process should include metrics that can be monitored on a monthly, weekly or even daily basis. Designed to monitor marketing efforts on a campaign-by-campaign basis, these metrics can be used as a baseline for strategic planning. Simple quantitative tools are a good start. However, Alliance churches often choose to consult with professional marketers for assessment tools and strategic insights.

Broadcast Advertising

Broadcast advertising has clearly taken some hits over the past couple of decades. The number of consumers who tune-in to local TV and radio has plummeted, and the industry has struggled to regain its footing. However, it would be a mistake to discount broadcast advertising entirely. Many Alliance churches continue to find ways to attract audiences to their brand through broadcast media. Today's broadcast marketing solutions have the ability to target a geographically concentrated sector of the marketplace. For example, many people limit their radio listening to their daily commute. For Alliance churches, the target audience is almost always local or regional. For broader reach, you'll likely need to look beyond broadcast venues and explore other online and offline marketing vehicles.
