When it comes to marketing we recommend that businesses employ a fully integrated approach in order to stand out from the crowd.
Instead of staking your campaign spend on a single channel, be it print or digital or social, a better bet would be to spread it across all three. And don’t stop there – you could add in bespoke editorial features, sponsorships, events and other elements to deliver a truly multi-faceted marketing programme.
Just consider the key benefits for a second:
1. Saves you time and money
A great place to start, right? Your message is the same across the campaign and you can reuse assets and imagery. This reduces duplication and results in improved efficiency.
2. Gets you noticed
You want to grab attention and build awareness. This is far easier to achieve if you have a consistent message being communicated across an assortment of channels.
3. Builds trust
If customers see your brand being presented clearly and consistently as part of successful integrated campaign they are more likely have faith in the message and the business behind it.
4. Increases impact
Each channel will work to support and strengthen your overall message. Digital will reinforce print and vice versa, and social and other facets will add further layers of effectiveness.
5. Improves analysis
An integrated campaign means you have more data sources at your disposal, enabling you to monitor the individual channels more closely and understand which ones are performing best.
