Integrated Marketing?

What the Heck is Integrated Marketing Anyway?

Integrated Marketing is not only online. It specifically targets, captures and grows engagement through consistent marketing messaging strategies, streamlined through multiple channels: in-person experience, branding, visuals, signage, website, social media, multi-media advertising, SEO (Google), relationships, email marketing, video, blogging, promos, print material..

Really, it’s all about building relationships with everything you do, say and put ‘out there’ …. yes, IT’S EVERYTHING, everywhere!

Let’s talk about Integrated Marketing Messaging to increase sales, profile and awareness.

What really works is transparent ‘Real People Speak’ answering the question, ‘What’s in it for me?’, ‘How will I feel?’, ‘Will it make my life better?’ and the sharing of information. It’s fine and dandy to get discovered and we work hard on getting our client’s found on the likes of Google, with excellent results too.

But… let’s face it. You’ve got 3 SECONDS to capture people once they’ve found you. You’ve got competition and you’ve got to be unique.

I hear this time and again. It’s not right. It’s not fair.

I really get upset when I hear about businesses and organizations getting taken advantage of when it comes to spending their hard-earned money on one or two advertising options. Check out my latest point of interest enews. Pretty important points to ponder >

Listening to Your Competition

Do you ever feel like everywhere you look, competitors are saying the exact same things in their advertising? There are merits to knowing what your competition is doing, in any industry it is crucial to know what is out there and make sure that you are offering a competitive product or service at competitive rates. What most people do not realize is that focusing too much on your competition can actually cripple your businesses and accomplish the opposite of what you are trying to do.

What happens all too often, especially in smaller cities, is that people have a tendency to copy. I’m not saying that they go out there with the intention of mimicking, but they become so focused on what others are doing that they forget to innovate.

I was reminded of this concept when I went to the store to compare tablets, the iPad 2, Blackberry Playbook and others. What became apparent the more I looked and researched was that Apple was focused on their business, on being the best they could be. While it seems everyone else is simply try to keep up with competition.

Makes me wonder, what could we accomplish if everyone stopped trying to be like everyone else, and just focused on being the best they could be. Now that gives you something to market!
