Gagandeep Singh is working as an Internet Marketing Executive for Forte Promotions, which provide high quality promotional products which help businesses to promote their brands in the market.
Almost all companies are spending most of their budget in marketing and promoting their brands because of increasing competition in the market but Most of the marketing campaigns could not see light of the day and get buried under lots of similar marketing campaigns without getting noticed.
Marketing campaigns fail because of the improper planning at earlier phase and wrong implementation, which as Kent Ertugrul has pointed out, can simply be a lack of targeted audience. In this article I would be discussing the things you should know for creating a successful marketing campaign.
Setting Your Objective
Define your business objective and the desired results you would like to achieve after your marketing campaigns. You can create separate sets of objectives like long-term and short-term based on their nature. You need to set up goals which according to you can be easily achieved after the marketing campaign.
Becoming an Expert
Your marketing campaign should focus on qualities which makes your product different than your competitors. Try to establish yourself as an expert so that your customers should trust on your product and services. Share some of your mist valuable content with your audience to build a relationship of trust and credibility.
Conducting Proper Research
Do proper research about your customers and where they are while planning your marketing campaign. You should know what your customers are looking for and your marketing campaign should able to provide the information they are searching for to get successful. Also you should try to find out the effective communication means to interact with your customers so that your message can reach your customers.
Making Attractive Offers
Send them an attractive offer which can encourage them enough to participate in your campaigns. A simple “How to lose weight” won’t get much attention as compared to an attention grabbing offer like “How to Reduce 10kg in 7 days”. Also, you can create promotional products imprinted with your logo, discount codes etc to encourage people to participate in campaign.
Keeping Things Simple
Simplicity sells better. Keep you call-to-action link simple so that users can easily participate in the campaign and take the desired action you want them to take.
Setting a Budget
Set the separate budget for each phase of your campaign depending on the different territories where you want to launch your campaign. Breaking costs of each phase separately would help you to measure success of each phase so that you can understand which part of marketing campaign works better than others.
Setting Benchmarks and Measuring Results
Set benchmarks and milestones to measure your results and keep you motivated. Measuring results would help you to analyze the actual performance of campaigns as compared to your objectives. Track the sources of traffic so that you can know which promotional technique is working better whether its email campaign, online ads or referrals scheme. Analyze results and continue with the most effective methods.
