I suggest stop, think and look at what your business is using for marketing. Is it working? Think about your target market, have they changed? Are there things you can change, add, or take away? Above all keep it simple. Work from your research about your target audience. Introduce incremental changes.

Here are some marketing ideas you could consider adding to your marketing strategy for your business. Some of these suggestions may not work for your type of business. Consult a marketing professional to help you further develop a unique strategy for you.

Create Instructional Videos

Instructional videos are interesting and informative. They really show you know what you are doing. They work great for DIY businesses, hair and beauty business, art and craft and any other business that can show a process.

Produce Great Content

A little like the instructional video, great content displays knowledge but it also keeps your existing content up to date. How annoying is it when you go to a website and their information is old. I feel frustrated and if the business isn’t bothering to update their content why would I visit their site again.

Develop A Customer Referral Reward System

Run a Competition to Create a Business Card for your Business

Involving your customers existing and potential is a great way for them to get to learn about who you are. If they have to do something like designing your business card it shows you value your customers and see them as important. In turn, they learn more about your business and it can create word of mouth.

Develop New Ways to Show Customers Who You Are

 

Marketing isn’t just about your bottom-line. It is about customers. It is about research and becoming fearless about trying new things. Marketing today demands that you put on your creative hat. It calls for you to be different, thinks different, and interact with your customers differently. Let your customers teach you about what they like. Let them get close to your brand.

And so,

Businesses who recognise the value of marketing ideas even if they don’t have a huge budget will make a difference to their bottom-line.

If you are not creative that’s ok. There are company’s you can hire full of creative people.
