share your ideas please
1- Use the advertisement in Newspaper, where you will highlight the silent feature or USP of product such as technology, safety, fuel consumption, millage, durability etc.
2- Use the digital billboards at the most populous place such as shopping malls, amusement places and expose the product, design, and its features (and price, if, it is competitive and creating difference).
3- Open the promo centers in colleges, universities to target youth, where you can offer different trial to customer/ students, so they get the opportunity to know the product and physical experience.
4- Use the electronic media to promote their products , such as ad posting on different websites, such as on Olx.com, and local vehicles websites, in TV channels at peak time ( most especially in sport channel etc.) to focus more viewers.
5- Offer different promotional packages or promotional prices or after service, warranty etc. to attract the potential customers.
To introduce your brand in public and catch the attention of new customers the companies use different brand promotional tactics. There are so many ways to promote a brand in the market. Different companies use different strategies according to their market. And with the implementations of strong promotional strategies companies achieve their goals to become pioneer in their markets.
PIRANI group of companies can also reach their targets by implementing these five different promotional strategies to become top of the list in super bikes category.
The main idea of contests is to promote company’s brand and put your logo and name in front of the general public. Contests and brand sponsoring should be arranged rather than the consent of making profits. People like free gifts and this is one of the best promotional strategies. This will increase awareness about your brand in public.
2. Internet Marketing/ Social Media:
Internet marketing, or online marketing, includes emails to advertise your brand in front of targeted public. Social media websites also play a vital role in internet marketing. Facebook, Google, YouTube and many more famous websites offer companies to promote their brands according to their markets. This is another example of direct marketing, which will boost up the promotion of company’s products.
3. Point of Purchase Marketing (POP):
Point of purchase marketing or (POP marketing) sells to a captive audience. The main idea behind this promotional strategy is convenience and impulse. The featured product is positioned at shopping malls where it can be easily accessible to the customers, with a discounted price tag to attract buyers.
4. Offline Advertising:
This marketing strategy will make more people aware of your product. And if it is effective advertising, people will buy your product too. It can be as simple as placing an ad in a television, local newspapers, magazines, billboards ad, Flyers or a radio commercial. This will attract huge amount of public to buy your product.
Co-branding is a marketing strategy in which at least two brands join together to promote a product. This is a powerful way to promote your product to consumers. The brands lend their collective credibility to increase the sale of your product. Branding your own product with another or offering buyers the chance to win certain product is a common marketing methodology to increase awareness about your product.
