Unique Advertising Strategies for Your Business

Starting a new business comes with a deluge of challenges–among them, developing and implementing creative advertising strategies and marketing techniques that differentiate you from your competition. In the battlefield of brand recognition, it’s crucial to stand out, finding unique and innovative ways to promote your business.

To jump start this process, consider the following strategies for marketing and promoting your brand!

  1. Leverage social media influencers:                                                   Partnering with social media influencers can be a great way to get your brand in front of a large, targeted audience. Look for influencers in your industry or target demographic, and offer them a product or service to review or promote. This can be a cost-effective way to reach a large audience quickly.
  2. Host an event:                                                                                                Hosting an event, such as a workshop, seminar, or networking event, can be a great way to get your brand in front of potential customers. Use social media and email marketing to promote the event, and offer special discounts or promotions to attendees.
  3. Use content marketing:                                                                                     Content marketing is a strategy that involves creating and sharing valuable, relevant content with the goal of attracting and retaining customers. This could include blog posts, ebooks, infographics, or even video content. By providing valuable information to potential customers, you can build trust and credibility for your brand.
  4. Partner with complementary businesses:                                           Partnering with businesses that complement your products or services can be a great way to reach a new audience. For example, if you sell handmade jewelry, you could partner with a local boutique to showcase your products. This can be a win-win situation, as you both get exposure to a new audience.
  5. Use experiential marketing:                                                             Experiential marketing involves creating interactive experiences that allow customers to engage with your brand in a meaningful way. This could be a pop-up shop, a product demo, or even a live event. By giving customers a hands-on experience with your brand, you can create a strong emotional connection that can lead to long-term loyalty.

There are numerous creative and unique advertising strategies a new business may employ. By leveraging social media influencers, hosting events, using content marketing, partnering with complementary businesses, and using experiential marketing, you can stand out from the competition and get your brand noticed.

Franchises for the Summer

I hope everybody had a great 4th of July. We’re now officially two weeks into summer and that means that it’s the perfect time for you to start a summer franchise. Here are five great franchise choices that will position you for success this summer and beyond.

Choosing Between a Product and a Service Franchise

There are basically two types of businesses that can be offered by an individual. They can offer Products to their customers which are tangible goods meant for the customer's consumption or they can offer them Services which are intangible and work to make the life of the consumer easier and more convenient. With technologies advancing rapidly and the global demands of consumers changing there is a very thin line dividing the service and product segment of the consumers demands. An example of this can be the purchase of a car from an auto dealer. The dealer not only offers the vehicle at a competitive rate but now has to offer different services as well, such as financing options, after-sales services, ready documentation and other non- tangible services. This kind of merging has made it very difficult to draw a clear line as to the service and product industry but for the sake of argument we will consider a theoretical perspective where you have to choose a traditional product franchise or a service franchise.
