Your brand image is more important than you think. A lot of people assume that all they need to worry about is finding the right logo or choosing the perfect design for their website. However, the truth is that you need to be constantly engaging your customers on a visual level if you want to capture both their attention and their loyalty.
In today’s fast-paced and competitive marketplace, the easiest way to earn the interest of a new audience is to ensure that you have an immediate visual impact. If someone sees that your product packaging or promotional materials are stunning and professionally designed, they’ll be able to recognise the investment you’ve put into your business. This makes your company appear more trustworthy, and sophisticated.
Designing Your Promotional Materials:
In the marketing world, “promotional materials” can be a very broad term. For some organisations, your promotional materials will simply be the emails, direct mail campaigns, and social media advertorials that you create with the help of a designer and professional printing company. For others, promotional materials can extend all the way to your product packaging, the banners you use to advertise at local networking events, and even the promo products you give away to inspire customer engagement.
No matter how you plan to use promotional materials in your strategy for business growth, it’s important to remember that you only have one chance to make the right impression on your target audience.
That means that you’ll need to keep the following things in mind:
• Quality: Regardless of whether you’re sending out a leaflet to your loyal customers or giving something away for free at an industry event, you need to ensure that your printed promotional materials demonstrate quality both in their visual impact and their performance. The quality of the items you create reflects directly on the trustworthiness of your company.
• Consistency: It’s a good idea to create a brand manifesto or set of design guidelines before you begin investing in promotional materials. This will help to ensure everything from your fonts to the colours you use remain the same. Consistency leads to familiarity and therefore greater loyalty in your customers.
• Diversity: Finally, remember that you’re competing with a huge number of companies in today’s crowded marketplace. Try different types of promotional materials to see which your customers like best!
