A 5 minute guide to promotional marketing

Big brand umbrella advertising

What is promotional marketing? 

Simply put it’s a marketing strategy which aims to get potential customers to choose your product or brand.  The primary objective of promotional marketing is to keep your product or brand in the mind of the customer.  You want them to buy from you so it’s essential to promote your business effectively. 

Create a distinctive brand identity.

Your logo is part of this and you have probably thought about the design, colours and message but this is only part of your identity.   Your brand identity represents your values, services, personality and ideas so it is important you get this right. 

Get your message out there.

So you’ve got your eye-catching logo, you have thought long and hard about your brand identity… what next?  You need to get your brand visible to potential customers. First thing’s first: know who your target customers are as this information is key to your campaign.  

Promote your business.

Once you have an idea who you are targeting you can think of the best way to get your message across.   If you have more than one target market this message could be different.   This is a competitive time and you want to stand out from the crowd.   There are plenty of ways to promote your business including:

  • Mass media advertising ( business directories, magazines, newspapers etc)
  • Public Relations  (press releases, launches, events, tours)
  • Sales based methods (competitions, discounts, coupons, gift vouchers)
  • Direct marketing (letters, emails etc)
  • Digital marketing through websites and mobile phones
  • Social networking 

Promotional marketing focuses on getting your brand noticed and subsequently chosen by customers, ultimately that is what you need to succeed. 

Spending time thinking carefully about your strategy can save you time and money.  Some ideas to think about are:

  •  Who is the target of your campaign?
  • Which incentives might work best for your intended customers?
  • What is your available budget?
  • Who will be responsible for running the campaign?
