Marketing can be somewhat tricky, but there are those strategies that really work in order to make a marketing campaign successful. One strategy that is used is the “4 Ps of Marketing.” The 4 Ps are important to follow because they have shown success in helping businesses achieve their marketing goals.
The 4 Ps are Product, Price, Place, and Promotion. It is important to know these so that you can use them to your benefit.
This P doesn’t refer to just the product itself, but how it is presented. Is the packaging attractive? How is its overall appearance? How is it different from similar products? You would be amazed at how many individuals will buy a product based on what its packaging looks like.
You also want to look at such areas as the quality of the product, its warranties, and any other special characteristics of the product. Keep in mind that people buy a product because of its benefits. They want to know how it is going to benefit them. If it does, then they are going to spend their money on the benefits. If a product doesn’t have a benefit, then a lot of that product will be sitting in the warehouse for quite some time. This results in a lot of money lost.
The price is not the actual price that is on the product. The price is actually anything else involving the price. This means any discounts that may be available. If the product is one with financing options, then the financing options should be outlined. Just keep in mind that you don’t have to carry the cheapest product for it to be appealing. However, you do want to think of the people first. You do this by figuring out what price your target market is willing to pay for a great product. This can be done via online or offline surveys.
If others are distributing your products, then you want to communicate any special deals with them to make sure you can keep your product selling. If there is anything you need to do regarding the placement of your product, you need to ensure that your dealers are in the loop so that your product is appealing all across the board.
Furthermore, you need to take a look at your distribution points to make sure your product is making it to the customers that need it. If you must sell online, then sell online so that individuals from all around can obtain your product.
You may also wish to look into trade shows to distribute your product or get the word out about it. You can distribute literature and free promotional items so that individuals know how to buy your product.
Evaluate the proper promotional methods for your product. However, keep in mind that promotion also consists of communicating the benefits of your product through public relations. Furthermore, you must maintain the reputation of your business and your product.
One great way to promote your business and the products within your business is through promotional products. Promotional products contain your business logo, slogan, and any other information, such as contact information. Promotional products remind customers and potential customers that your business is there to serve them. Redfish Marketing provides these promotional materials to many businesses and takes care of the personalisation of each item.
Redfish Marketing has so many products that many different industries should have no issue finding a promotional product to match what they’re all about. That way when you make promotional products a part of the 4 Ps, you can have a very successful marketing campaign.
