Can you believe we’re almost halfway through 2021? Consider testing out a new marketing strategy in the last half of the year. If you haven’t already, we suggest you try video marketing as 72% of customers would rather learn about a product or service through a video than text.
This Month’s Marketing Must: Video Marketing
Video killed the radio star, and it’s still on the rise. Video is a powerful marketing tool to help you connect with customers, share what your business is all about, and show – instead of telling – people why they should do business with you.
- Make a quick video from your mobile device, walking through your location or introducing yourself and share it on social media.
- Try going live on Facebook or Instagram stories to build engagement with your audience.
- Have your employees script a brand commercial for your business to either film professionally or create using your smartphone.
June Marketing & Promotion Ideas
- We’re halfway through the year – are you on track to hit your business and marketing goals? Review the goals you set with your marketing partner and adjust as needed.
- If your business falls under the air conditioning and gas industry, this is the time to push a winter sale or promotion to get more people to try out your business.
- Businesses are winding up the financial year this month, and we all know EOFY time is SALE TIME! Clear out old stock and drive sales by enticing customers with amazing deals and discounts before June 30.
