5 Marketing Tips to Improve your Brand
Below are 5 marketing tips to help improve your brand:
As challenging as it now is to make money, consumers have become prudent with the way they spend. No one wants to order a product only to find that it doesn’t work or do what the manufacturer claims it does. In order to avoid disappointment, consumers are now taking more time to scrutinize the item which they are looking to purchase. From the outset, it is really important that you offer a detailed, honest and thorough review of your product or service to your consumers, this can only lead to increased interest and thus increased sales.
Tip 1 – Stay updated
Updates are needed in all applications of life and there is no exception to this rule when it comes to business. Don’t just offer a range of products and leave them to stagnate for months. Check out how well people are responding to your products, look to see if there are any complaints about certain areas of your products or services. Finally check whether there are any new products making waves online and make the necessary changes according to your customer demands.
Tip 2 – Blend important changes systematically
As stated above, you need to check for updates of other products or services within your market or industry sector. Once you have identified any changes, don’t just sit back and relax:
- Have you checked if those changes are really relevant?
- Have you calculated how much more you’ll profit from applying those changes?
- Have your competitors switched their marketing techniques?
- How much are your customers liking those changes?
Finding out what your customers think is easy… use surveys, newsletters and magazines to communicate with them. Make sure you incentivize them by offering some kind of prize. This will make it worth their while and you’ll definitely notice an increase in response levels.
Tip 3 – Include similar or related products
Have you ever been to a store to buy something and then been attracted to another product which is similar or related to the one you first went in for? This is a systematic method of raking up sales. Instead of customers buying what they first intended and then leaving, they end up paying for an additional item. If just half of your customers made this additional purchase every day, think of the extra profit you’d make.
Tip 4 – Keep your customers committed
Have you ever wondered why some brand names are constantly being talked about by consumers? It’s not just about quality services, it also boils down to extra services which are offered free of charge or at certain discounts. If you notice a drop in the sales, try to come up with a catchy and irresistible offer. Here are some examples: Free local delivery, earn % cashback, special offer % discount, standby technical support worth £X amount, etc.
Before you introduce any of these offers, it is important to estimate the expenses that you will incur and the impact this will have on your company. You definitely don’t want to run these extra services at a loss!
Tip 5 – Expand, expand and expand again!
This is one of the main reasons why businesses are established on a daily basis. Don’t just rely on one sales medium…explore all possible avenues. No matter what amount you are making, continue to explore until you exhaust all possible options. Check out the methods used by your competitors and try to use these to your advantage.
