Marketing Advice

 

Marketing an Illustrations Business

You're heavily invested in the success of your illustrations 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.

Need to improve the effectiveness of your marketing channels for your illustrations business? That's becoming a common theme these days, especially in this market sector.

Healthy customer relationships are strengthened and expanded through targeted marketing campaigns. With that in mind, it's important to leverage marketing as a path toward better customer engagement in your illustrations business's planning process.

Directories

A directory listing may be one of the best ways to increase the visibility of an illustrations business. When all of your competitors are listed in a directory, you have no choice in the matter. To keep pace, competitive businesses must include the same directories in their plans for marketing illustrations businesses in a region or territory. Premium directories may or may not deliver the ROI you expect to receive from paid marketing vehicles. Do your research and make sure any directory in which you list your business is capable of reaching enough likely customers to make it worth the effort. Some directories may also let you list more than your name and contact information, so be sure to ask whether your listing can include a logo and other information about your business.

Public Relations Strategies

If marketing is a stock car racing full throttle toward a consumer audience, PR is a vintage Cadillac teasing consumers and inviting them to take a closer look. If you want to send unrestricted marketing messages to your audience, buy a mailing list and perform a direct mail campaign. But if your strategy calls for sophistication, media buy-in and thought leadership, hire a PR consultant. The art of storytelling is a core PR competency. Storylines need to be believable and objective while communicating your brand's strengths and value proposition.

Expand Your Advertising Options

The number of advertising options to choose from can be overwhelming. Traditional advertising mediums like print ads, billboards, TV & radio commercials, are still popular in many industries and business sectors. When it comes to illustrations businesses, it is mission critical to identify the advertising vehicles that are most likely to meet the specific marketing goals your business is facing right now. These days, illustrations businesses get solid marketing results from online channels capable of streaming high value content to a large, yet targeted customer base. In general, if your competitors know more about promoting their business online than you, you may lose market share.
