Marketing is one of the ways businesses generate attention.
But amid a massive chorus of hyper-competition in this digital age, conventional marketing doesn’t produce many results unless the one that is effective.
You must consciously create the attention you want now that many of our lives have largely shifted to the digital world.
Redefining your marketing
Effective marketing is everything you do to attract and keep customers in your business. To realize this, one must make a conscious effort to remain where their product or service must be seen at all times. If you want to be found, go where the seekers seek!
Understand how to market your solution to a market that are digitally inclined, and it will make a whole lot of difference. It is the duty of every entrepreneur or business owner to make their product or service the centre of attention to their industry.
Great businesses don’t just make noise; they make news by every slightest opportunity they may have or can create. They are on the lips of people, both customers and prospective customers, whose loyalty would be guaranteed as they keep seeing value in what they are offered.
Increase your visibility
One of the principal ways any business could use to generate attention is by increasing its market visibility. You enhance your brand visibility by designing a predictable frequency at which your target market can see and feel your through various marketing channels.
In the world of business, visibility is everything. It is the business that people see and hear often that they are drawn to. When you have more visibility and exposure than your competition, you’ll enjoy more patronage from the market.
Great businesses generate discussion amongst people and groups. Visibility gives you access to people’s attention. Of course, we naturally move towards whatever we focus our gaze or attention on. Think about it.
Visibility of any kind is suggestive; it creates a sort of subtle prompting, and sometimes a reminder whenever we think of using a variety of service or product that falls within that industry category.
As a matter of fact, the market has a way of becoming sentimental in favouring products or businesses that are more visible relative to the rest. Great businesses understand this secret and they are taking advantage of it daily.
Visibility builds credibility
Visibility builds credibility and increases ‘preferability’ and profitability. With consistent visibility, you can be the one everyone is talking about and sooner you become the one they enjoy doing business with.
For instance, constant exposure through the social media (by promotion or running social media contests), or even contribute to your community through CSR, and PR involvement can drastically reposition your business. By every means, create a ripple-generating value beyond your product by being visible where you should.
Your solution doesn’t necessarily have to be the best; just tilt it at an angle where you’d always be seen as the best. After all, the observer’s perception is his or her reality.
