NEW YORK, April 9, 2015 /PRNewswire/ — Even while living in a digital age, small business marketers understand that traditional marketing strategies are unique and have distinct value with helping to grow their small business. While it’s important not to discount the power of online marketing, many proven offline methods are simply forgotten when marketing campaigns are planned.
In her debut article for PR Newswire’s Small Business PR Toolkit, Claire Prendergast, Senior Strategic Communications Manager at agencyEA, explores different types of traditional offline marketing techniques that can benefit your business.
- Guerilla marketing. Thinking outside of the box may lead to unconventional techniques that often translate into "unforgettable." Posting sticky notes at popular locations such as drive-thrus may be one guerilla marketing tactic that leaves a lasting impression.
- Give stuff away. Including small branded items with each customer order is an excellent way to incentivize your customer-base. That extra thoughtful step may be just what is needed to get them coming back for more.
- Public speaking. While this tactic may not be for everyone, it’s often a very useful way to bring new customers to your business and help grow your brand. Find a local event that is related to your industry, come up with an educational topic you can speak on, and volunteer your time. Attending events can be just as beneficial as speaking at them.
