Successful advertising is essential because it allows you to get a greater connection with your target audience, creates awareness of your product, adds credibility to your message and makes it easier to get attention for your entire brand.
Micheala James from Design Juice has provided these top advertising tips to ensure your next advertising campaign is successful:
Zero in on your target audience
Don’t make the mistake of thinking bigger is better. A larger market is not as useful as a focused one. Find your niche market and gear your advertising towards it. Understand what kind of customers you want to attract and make sure your ads speak to them on a personal level.
What makes you different?
Your advertising needs to set your products or services apart from your competitors. If you focus your ads on the things that make you different, you distinguish yourself from the crowd and make what you offer, unique. If your ad doesn’t sell the benefits of your business then it’s failed its purpose. Highlight the reasons why your potential customers should choose you.
Create an image
A consistent, recognisable image is important when it comes to advertising and promoting your brand. It establishes and maintains your visual identity, so make that impression count.
Don’t try DIY
Bring in the professionals. Successful advertising costs money – because when it’s done well, it works. If you provide your audience with good content and you’ll maximise their engagement and their positive feelings about your business.
The right message to the right people through the right channels
Knowing your audience will help you choose the media that will deliver your advertising message most successfully. When you understand who your customers are and what they read, watch, and listen to, then advertise in the appropriate media.
