|5 Sure Ways To Convert Print Marketing To Sales by kiakiaprint: 2:55pm On Apr 17|
The biggest companies spend the most on ads, as it keeps them in the faces of their customers and keeps them ahead of their competitors. Most brands and companies spend so much on print marketing, both digital and print without the objectives of the marketing campaigns coming to fruition.
Have you ever heard of your marketing objectives such as brand promotion, increased awareness, more sales, and more traffic getting tossed aside to the background? This is because the customers that are being targeted don’t even take a second glance at your ad.
Most brands believed they are not getting traction using the conventional marketing methods, but this simply isn’t true. Print is still one of the most effective channels to engage consumers and drive sales and increased profits.
The following are 5 ways to ensure that your print marketing ads convert so you get better results.
Always talk about benefits
Time is key and people don’t have it in abundance. Therefore, it is imperative that you maximize the use of headlines to grab the attention of your reader. If your headline isn’t attractive enough, then you can’t make them read the content. Don’t just talk about features when writing headlines, think of writing benefits. Why must they use your products or why they must patronize you? The benefits of using them? Why you are better than your competitors. Ensure that your headline text is unique from the rest of the ad by using big, bold font.
Reduce text on your print marketing materials
Most people get turned off by long text, so try to summarize your content. After grabbing their attention through headlines, ensure that they don’t have to read lots of text before they see something interesting. You are advertising, not writing a novel. Use bullet points to list out relevant information and write in an easy-to-digest manner.
Call to Action is very important
Every print ad must have a Call to Action. After reading your ad, what next? What are you doing to drive response? People like to be told what to do. Tell them what to do next in a friendly way, but enough to convince them to take that step. Are you telling them to fill a form online, check out a website or call a number?
It must be expressly stated and well-articulated. Your CTAs must have a tone of urgency, but don’t make it sound as though you are desperate. For instance, you could say, “40% discount ends in 48 hours. Call 0810******* to get started”. It would surely drive engagement.
