What are some traditional advertising channels?

There are many different types of media to choose from, all of which have their strengths and weaknesses

  • Direct Mail: Allows ads to be directed at specific consumers. When used effectively, text and graphics can create visual appeal, reinforcing the message. Mailings also have their disadvantages. Solo mailings can be expensive. Consumers are typically more responsive to mailings from advertisers they know and trust.
  • Internet: Ads are cheap, reach a large audience, and provide a trackable rapid direct response. Unfortunately, consumers have become aware of online advertising, and have begun blocking it. Consumers need to be seeking your product or company for it to stand out.
  • Yellow Pages: Although we are all aware of the yellow pages, they can be fairly limiting. Your ad will be lumped with all others of the same product, allowing customers to compare. These are also only published once a year so they cannot carry special offers. Technology has rendered them almost obsolete (think endangered species).
  • Cable TV: Sight, sound and motion easily capture the attention of consumers, and ads can be targeted by channel and program. Unfortunately producing quality commercials is expensive, they only show your information for a limited amount of time, relying on the consumer to take the initiative to remember. DVR’s have also limited the reach these commercials.
  • Radio: Although relatively inexpensive and fast to produce compared with TV, radio has a smaller reach, and may still have the same problems with message permanence as TV. Most car stereos today are equipped with a channel changing feature right on the steering wheel to help consumers avoid advertisements.
  • Newspaper: Inexpensive and trackable, newspaper ads can communicate detailed information. However, readership of the daily and Sunday paper Nationally has declined over 10% since 1998. Ads also frequently suffer from ad clutter since 60% of the space in a typical newspaper is filled with advertising.
  • Outdoor: Size, color, and location allow ads to be attention getting and memorable through repetition. Getting the right combination of these elements can be expensive with a limited amount of billboards available in high traffic areas. Billboards can only effectively communicate 10 words when not obscured by trees and buildings.
What are the benefits of advertising?

Advertising your business allows you to:

  • Brand your name and products to potential customers in your target market.
  • Increase sales which equal higher profit. Ask yourself- How much will the acquisition of one customer be of value over the lifetime of the business?
  • Make an offer that will entice them to do business with you.
  • Fight Competition- Continuous advertising is essential in keeping up with your competitors.
  • Advertising can be educational to your consumers, familiarizing them with your products or services.
  • Track your response rate to discover what works, and what doesn’t.
  • Find out more about who your best customers are.
  • Use the information you receive from each campaign to make the next one even better.
How can I make advertising through direct marketing work for me?

There are 2 keys to a successful Direct Marketing Campaign. The first (and most important) is branding. When people think of your industry they need to think of you first and you alone. The second is if you choose to put an offer out to the public. If you can get your best offer out to your best customers, your direct marketing will pay for itself. Ask yourself : What types of people purchase your product? Why do they purchase it? Are they repeat customers? Tailor a marketing program with the right neighborhoods, products, formats, offers and frequency to assure your best chances for success.
