Marketing Tips

 

Marketing an Interactive Media Services Business

You have to be light on your feet to stay ahead of the curve these days, especially when you're promoting an interactive media services business. We have the information you need to create a nimble, yet effective marketing strategy for your business.

We recognize that the best interactive media services business entrepreneurs tend to possess solid marketing skills. However, capable marketing is elusive for many leaders in this industry.

The marketplace is constantly shifting to accommodate consumer demand and that means businesses need to adapt their marketing requirements accordingly. Core marketing concepts offer touch points to help small business owners navigate uncertain markets.

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 interactive media services business 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.

Viral Marketing

Viral marketing is one of the most elusive marketing techniques in a small business owner's arsenal. By including viral elements in a campaign for an interactive media services business, the hope is that your brand and product line will take on viral qualities. Although you have little control over whether or not your products go viral, there are things you can do to nurture your brand's viral capacity. Social media and other online vehicles can seed a viral marketing campaign, but you'll need to nurture their development through direct customer interaction as well as other techniques.

Public Relations Strategies

Marketing and public relations are two distinct promotional disciplines. While marketing flows blatant advertising messages to audiences, PR takes a more educational and informative approach. 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.
