Business advertising is the process of generating sales and awareness of a company through a variety of marketing mediums, both traditional and online methods, to keep them in the mind of their target audience.
We know that every business is different, so our specialist media planners will listen to the individual aims and ambitions of a company before putting together a marketing plan.
We work with a range of companies, from small and medium-sized enterprises to large corporate ones, to help them achieve their desired results; whether that is to increase sales or levels of brand awareness for their company, service or product.
Our business marketing teams will listen to your aims and put together a bespoke plan, simply drop us a message and one of the team will be in touch to discuss the various suitable options available to you.
It is simply the promotion of a business or company and the services they provide.
Business advertising is carried out by most companies so that they are in the public eye and conscious throughout the year. The benefits of such marketing are that a company can reinforce its popularity with current customers whilst also reaching out to new ones.
There are many different methods of advertising that a business can adopt to achieve exposure including TV and radio ads, emails, print, outdoor adverts, PPC online ads and social media advertisements. It all depends on your budget, where you are and what you are looking to promote.
To find out more, drop us a message and tell us a bit about you; what you are looking to achieve, your target market, any geographical areas of interest and an idea of your marketing budget. When we have this information we will put together a tailored marketing campaign for you to consider.
Basically, all businesses need to carry out some form of advertising and promotions to make sure that what they offer is known by the general public and consumers. Our teams work with companies of all sizes from:
Sole traders and independent stores
Small and medium sizes enterprises (SMEs)
Depending on the products or service you supply, we will identify a suitable and effective strategy to help your business be both stable in a tricky world, as well as grow.
The most suitable and effective techniques depend on the company, location and aims and ambitions of the company.
Smaller companies (such as local services, restaurants, bars etc) will only need exposure in a small geographical location, however, if you have a national service or product you will want to go further afield.
Broadly we look after the following types of businesses:
Not all companies are looking to take over the world but all need customers to survive.
Most small and mid-sized companies exist by servicing their local areas, examples of these include builders, plumbers, electricians, local gardeners, independent local shops, non-chain restaurants and cafes.
When looking at a campaign for these types of businesses, we tend to focus on strong local outdoor advertising, local press advertising, targetted social media, print in appropriate outlets and possibly smaller local radio stations. Budgets are flexible but tend to start from a few thousand pounds.
Businesses that have a wider catchment area need to push beyond the smaller towns in which they may exist, they need to give a sense of greater size and scope. Options for these larger regional companies would include all of the options that an SME would adopt, however, other options may be included, such as larger regional radio campaigns on larger commercial stations, shopping advertising in large out-of-town malls and even regional TV advertising.
These are the biggest companies and brands.
They would tend to have large budgets and almost any, and all, techniques and advertising options can be used. These companies would often want to give a sense of scale and prestige and most of these would have TV advertising, national press advertising, strong and impactful outdoor, underground advertising and strong online and social media campaigns.
These types of companies spend hundreds of thousands to cement their position at the top of the pile and to keep themselves clear of the opposition.
The costs of marketing varies depending on a number of different factors.
These are basically; the type of media you choose, the length of the cycle (time period you want this to run for), location and time of year.
For more information on costs, simply check out the individual pages that we have where we go into more detail. You can also contact us for additional information and free quotes.
