Advertising for your Brand with Leads 2 Business

Let me quickly start by telling you how far back advertising comes from.

Advertising has been around since the 16th century and will continue to evolve in different ways. It became a major force in capitalist economies in the mid-19th century, based primarily on newspapers and magazines. In the 20th century, advertising grew rapidly with new technologies such as direct mail, radio, television, the internet, and mobile devices. So why would you not advertise, if companies have done so for so long?

No matter how big or small, successful, or seasoned, your business may be, there is no excuse why a business should not advertise on a consistent basis, it is an incredibly effective and powerful way to spread informative awareness increasing the loyalty of existing customers, replacing lost customers and encouraging existing customers of your brands, products, or services. This will always be an important element of business success and by staying on top of the trends, utilizing your knowledge, and being consistent, your business should always see results from your efforts.  Indirectly, advertising helps you grow word-of-mouth referrals.

Make the Most of Advertising

posted in: General 0

There are banners everywhere! Every time we visit a website, we see them.

As a marketing tool, banner ads clearly have power. Our goal is to intensify your business’ future growth. No matter how big or small your company is, the difference between a poor banner design and a great one can really put your ROI and site traffic through the roof. It’s vital to make sure your banner stands out.

What are the best ways to build a banner that maximizes click-throughs?

If you want to generate more clicks from your advert, consider incorporating some of these tactics.

Prompting: A good advert will perform better if it contains words that trigger a response from the user. Words such as “Click Here”, “Click to Visit”, and “Visit Now! “, for example.” may increase the chance of click-throughs.

Urgency: The information on your site must seem more important to visitors than the website they’re currently viewing for them to click on your banner. Use phrases such as “Hurry!” to create a sense of urgency.“Only while stock lasts” and “For a limited time only!”The banner should be clear and simple. Ensure your banner space is optimized with click-through elements. Make sure your banners entice users to click and your Web site provides information about your products and services, not the reverse!

Formats: Color schemes for banners are very important. Especially if you are using animation, keep your colour scheme consistent. It is best to highlight keywords with complementary colours that grab the user’s attention.

Target Audience: The audience targeted by our site already has a construction background. Consider what the audience is familiar with, interested in, and likely to click on.

Security: Microsoft has implemented security features in Outlook that prevent .gif animations from repeatedly looping through all frames. Therefore, it is necessary for all relevant information to display in the first frame. Keep in mind that banners lose effectiveness after a while, so you should keep creating new ones every few months.

Why Advertise?

posted in: General 0

Why Advertise you ask?

If you have a business, whether small or a large corporation, it is always a good idea to advertise your products and/or services and here are 10 good reasons why:

  1. Advertising in the right medium, reaching your target market (that’s a whole blog on its own) generates loyalty to your brand and forms a lasting connection with your customers. #BrandLoyalty
  2. Advertising creates a positive image of your company, your products and/or services. Regular, positive advertising advises customers that you are available, open for business and you can help solve their problems, fill their needs etc.
  3. Advertising can attract new customers and ultimately more business which in turn, generates income – also known as ROI. The market is always changing and there are always new potential customers looking for new business opportunities and ways to grow their business.
  4. Advertising helps you stay ahead of the competition as advertising convinces people to use your company, your products/services and it reminds them why they chose to use your products in the first place.
  5. Advertising generates more income for your company, as I mentioned earlier, but it’s worth mentioning again as this is important. Invest in advertising and watch your business grow and succeed, even in thetough times.
  6. Advertising in the right medium allows you to target your ideal customers in a specific market, by making them aware of what your company can offer them.
  7. Advertising not only attracts new business and customers, but it also creates repeat and continuous business, by reminding customers, that you are there for them whenever they may need your products and/or service again.
  8. Advertising can be used to promote a new service or product that your company is offering and persuade new, as well as existing, customers to try it out by explaining why they need it, what it can do for them and how it can help them. #PowerofPersuasion
  9. Advertising regularly ensures that you maintain a constant, positive, public presence and people don’t forget about your company and what it has to offer.
  10. Advertising can encourage people to contact your company for more information on what you have to offer.

 

And there are many more benefits, but these are just 10 and the bottom line is that by advertising you generate more business and more sales for your company, not just now, but for the future too and isn’t that what being in business is all about? To make money.
