Using Integrated Marketing to Build Value and Loyalty image

If you had to sum up the overall goal of your marketing campaign in a single word, that word would undoubtedly be "branding." Yes, you want to get the word out about your products and services.

To that end, integrated marketing is a perfect chance to build both brand value and customer loyalty in a number of different ways, all of which are worth exploring. What is Integrated Marketing? Breaking Things Down At its core, the idea behind integrated marketing (also commonly called cross-platform marketing) is clear: you're attempting to meld all aspects of your marketing together into a single cohesive message ...

Why Choose Between Print and Digital When You Can Link Both Together? image

Oftentimes, even seasoned marketing veterans can sometimes make the mistake of thinking that they have to pick between print and digital when it comes to their collateral.

How to Market Pest Control Services for Summer Customers image

Any marketing veteran can tell you that seasonal marketing is every bit as much an art as it is a science. If you're a pest control business, summer is probably your busy season. However, just because summer has yet to arrive doesn't mean that you shouldn't already be ramping up your marketing campaign. If you wait until warm weather finally hits, it'll be far too late - and nearly every other company around you will have beaten you to the jump. Instead, you need to start thinking TODAY about how you're going to best position yourself to reach all those relevant customers when the temperatures finally start to rise outside. That, of course, requires you to keep a few key ...

Get Your Customers to Market FOR You: The Power of Advocacy image

When it comes to your direct mail marketing strategy, one of the core elements that you always need to be positioned to use to your advantage is loyalty. People have grown weary of traditional advertising to a certain extent, as evidenced by the millions of people who use ad blocking software online. But the one thing that people will always look for is a good recommendation from a friend or loved one - and make no mistake, that is absolutely what you want to get in on. Not only is this why a customer retention strategy should always be a priority (remember that it's less expensive to retain an existing customer than it is to get a new one), but it's ...

The Art of Omnichannel Branding image

At its core, the idea behind omnichannel branding is a simple one. Every interaction that someone has with your brand - regardless of where that interaction takes place - should invoke the same feelings and emotional response. In other words, if someone visits your website and then receives a direct mail postcard, both of those experiences should feel like they're both coming from the exact same place: the organization you've worked so hard to build. Omnichannel Branding is the Foundation of Your Marketing Strategy One of the major reasons why this is all so important is because it creates a consistent level of service across all possible touch points. People know that if they pick up the phone and give you ...

Growth Hacking: What It is and How to Do It Yourself image

At its core, the concept behind growth hacking is a simple one. It’s the process of rapid experimentation across your business – via your marketing funnel, product development, sales and more – with the ultimate goal of capitalizing on any and all opportunities for growth that present themselves.

However, it’s also something that requires you to ...

Customer Retention for Auto Repair Shops image

Almost more so than any other industry, auto repair and service shops depend on customer loyalty to survive. After all, people aren't rushing out and buying a new car every six months - they keep the one they already have for as long as possible.

Powerful Automotive Marketing Ideas For Your Shop By far, one of the most ...
