In today’s world, having the edge is so important, and that is no more so than within a marketing strategy, regardless of whether it is a business or political organization.
Even if you believe strongly in what you are selling, whether it is a product or your ideas, it isn’t enough to go at it hammer and tongs. Getting your message across so the target audience will understand is one thing, but you have to get it seen first, which is the hardest part.
So, you could go for all the regular options to try and get yourself or your business seen. Most are old and trusted ways, but some are much newer, and for any new generations may be a much better way to connect.
Go ‘old school’ and do a leaflet drop
There’s a reason that businesses still drop leaflets and brochures into people’s homes, and that’s because they still very much work. You may not get a sale from this method, but it will make you more memorable to the homeowner, which may result in a sale further down the line. This is a great option for food businesses and takeout places, as these brochures and menus can be useful to have around a keep. The more valuable your leaflet, the better it is.
Opt for giant roadside banners
Having banners by the side of the road may help draw attention to your cause, and it may, if they appear before your leaflet drop, help draw the attention of your chosen audience as they will recognize your design, color scheme, or your name and even your face.
Advertising in local papers
You can advertise your products or your political ideas through newspapers or local magazines and is a great option if you’re targeting a specific area. When implemented in connection with the above two points, it could work very well at getting you recognized and therefore getting your desired connection with the public.
Carrying out social media and SMS marketing
All social media and SMS marketing happens to be an excellent idea. Today most of the world live on their mobile phones, young and old alike. They use social media to connect and SMS to converse, and most people, if not all, read their text messages, making this is an excellent way to get your ideas across.
Local radio stations
Having a broadcast is a good idea regardless of what you are advertising, as any listeners will hear it irrespective of whether they are interested or not. And an interview would be even better as people connect well with a well-toned voice, especially if it is easy on the ears.
Even better than radio is appearing on local TV broadcasts. Being able to put a face to a name and a voice instantly makes a connection with people. In this instance, it can be a powerful tool and can help address difficult subject matters in a questions and answers way, which of course, you won’t get with leaflet drops, banners, and local papers.
