Let’s Get Physical! Promotion Doesn’t Have To Just Be Digital
Try to think of everything the internet has done for your business. It might be more efficient than ever to respond to the needs and queries of customers thanks to web-based instant messaging. There are many free promotional tools a business could use, like Facebook and Twitter. You can even communicate with your staff faster than ever. The internet and the tools it offers to businesses has made things easier, and cheaper than in the past. This can make it far too easy to continue using digital media to serve business needs and or why not let’s get physical.
Find A Balance
While you can blog your way to business success, you’d be mad to miss out on the customers that might be on your doorstep. Literally. The world outside the internet offers a bunch of fantastic physical opportunities. It can allow your business to leave a real mark on the local community. However, this doesn’t mean you should ignore the internet and what it offers, you need to find a balance. Don’t overly rely on anything, make a pact to use every single tool available to you! Diversifying your methods can only ever be a good thing.
Find Your Way
Starting off is incredibly easy as well. There are likely hundreds of networking opportunities for you and your business to attend within traveling distance. Simply turn up at one of these events and do your thing. At this level, it’s likely that the concept of true competition is a flawed ideal. Get out there and discover how other business owners are doing things, this could be a huge inspiration for you, and you might even find out that you’ve been doing things wrong for a while! Not only can you pick up some sound advice, but you can probably find collaborators who can help you with projects or even discover affiliates with whom you can cross-market with. There’s no risk in attending these network events and the base benefit is that you can probably pick up a free coffee, or two.
Ways To Promote Your Brand
While marketing across the internet helps, there are many ways you can promote your brand in the real-world. A classic business card won’t ever fail you, but if you’ve got a product that you’re passionate about and deserves a creative option – why not take a look at something like Alpha Card? It’s a great way to show off your product from your pocket and is certainly a memorable option. If you’re hosting your own event, make sure to put your product and its promotional tools front and center. Make it unforgettable and leave an impression. You’re not there to down the free wine – technically it’s not even free anyway if you’re hosting.
And of course, you can do all of this in combination with your new-fangled digital marketing methods. The key to physical promotion is that it is memorable and rather innocent in a way that in-your-face viral adverts aren’t. Combine it all for a great one-two punch and make your business and product unforgettable.
