Advertising Tips

You may have the best product or service out there but unless people know about it how are you going to sell anything. Promoting your business can be through a combination of avenues such as print,  internet, email etc, but whatever avenue you choose, effective promotion should include some or all of the following elements:
  1. Plan & cost a promotional schedule for each year.
  2. Tailor your advertising to your target audience - don't expect to sell to everyone.
  3. Don't chose your advertising based on cost alone - the cheapest isn't always the best.
  4. Highlight what the benefits are of using your business over the competition.
  5. Ensure a consistent brand image across all advertising. It helps build recognition/recall.
  6. Understand that effective advertising does have a cost - you have to spend money to make money.
  7. If your business is seasonal, make sure you are seen when it matters. Don't stop when things are quiet!
  8. Advertise in the right places and ensure a variety of media is used.
  9. Ask how new customers heard about you so you know which advertising is working.
