If you’re a business owner, you know how tough it is to earn new customers or clients. Marketing and promoting your business and its products or services is an ongoing, and often thankless task. Many business sectors seem to be growing and attracting new entrants leading to ever greater competition – there’s always a new entrant who wants to shake things up, disrupt the status quo and attract your customers or clients. Cue print advertising.
If your business isn’t on social media, you probably don’t deserve to be in business – but don’t put all your eggs in one basket – while social media and digital marketing might seem to be the way to go for many businesses, because of its ease and cost-effectiveness, you could be overlooking other more tried and tested marketing techniques which could give your business a serious boost.
While digital always seems to be hogging the limelight nowadays, and strategies and tactics evolve at an almost can’t-keep-up-with-it-all pace, conventional print media, with a twist, is able to make an impact in certain scenarios which simply blows digital online advertising out of the water.
Here are a couple of ideas to consider if you want to build your brand, attract more customers or clients, and give a boost to your business results.
If your product or service warrants it – consider producing a stylish brochure to inform potential customers or clients about a new product or a particular service your business offers. Experts in brochure printing can create a truly unique and innovative design to fit your business, its niche, and your target customers, providing a classy and non-digital interaction experience for your customers or clients and your business.
Large Format Printing
You know the saying: go big or go home. Depending on your business, going big could be just the trick to really catch the attention of potential customers and clients. Large-scale print media, think giant posters, banners, etc., have proven to work time and time again. With the right design, and a strategic location, an eye-popping banner, sign, or display could literally stop people in their tracks and make them want to know more about the brand and business behind it.
Recent years have seen the print industry adapting to the more general trend of personalising experiences for customers and clients. Demand for personalised items such as letterheads, envelopes, compliments slips and business cards is growing. It’s a tried and tested technique which actually puts something tactile and tangible in the hands of customers or clients; quite different from the endless stream of generic digital data which assaults most people every day.
There’s no doubt that printing services are still in demand, just be creative in the way you think about print media, and you’ll soon see the positive impact it can make for your business.
