Visual Marketing Strategies: An Easy How-To

Due to the continuous growth of applications like Pinterest, Flickr, and Instagram, it only makes sense to base your ideas around those social networks. What’s the base of these social media profiles? The images! First of all, these work as places to showcase your talents as photographer and designer, and they also function as visual galleries. But what makes this unique and extraordinary? Well, you’re about to get into the real deal of Visual Marketing, so no simplicity in design is allowed (only if applicable of course!).

What is Visual Marketing? To define it you must know just how important are visuals in business. Most of the time, clients find the visible part of a brand essential even before making a decision related to your company. Some customers look for a fresh, creative logo, while others choose a more serious, business-like image. It is up to you to decide which option you’re targeting and how to connect with it. The same rule applies to the creation of contents for the social media, as picking and developing content according to the essence of a brand is what often makes unique profiles.

The moment you start to take into consideration the needs and interests of your target market, you’re setting the Visual Marketing strategies into motion. The spectrum that this type of marketing covers is based on knowing what your goals are. For example, influencers’ goal is to get followers who identify with what the person represents and earn popularity. After having that identified, the rest should be easy to do, but it must be focused on reaching those followers.

That’s just halfway of the process, now that you have reached your target, you must build personas. But what is that? Building personas mean the creation of an active character towards your brand and services by satisfying needs of your market. Meeting the needs of your audience will maintain them by your side for the long term while developing interest from newcomers at the same time. If your goal is to raise the awareness of your brand, then you must make it go viral with the use of SEO, Hashtags, and Contests. These will show users how compromised you are in showing what your brand is all about.

Visual marketing is all about the details and originality. Once you get through the whole process, the rest is up to what you want to make your brand or business. Keep in mind that people are like trends, they change with time. Monitor that flow of change, and you’ll adapt accordingly. This is just like we do at 786.Marketing: we stay up to date about the things our target market wants. Don’t forget to contact us to start working on the improvement of your social networks!

When creating visual contents, you must consider certain aspects rather than just creating appealing images.

How Viral Contents catch Viewers

People, in general, want to know what’s happening at the moment and what the current trends are. I’m pretty sure you’ve been in a situation where you found something you thought was amazing and needed to share it everywhere, isn’t that right? That feeling is the contagious effect of viral contents.

But first things first: how does something become viral in the first place? The answer might not be that simple, but it isn’t an impossible feat to accomplish, either.

When writing, bloggers put their thoughts and organize their ideas in a text. You may think that after finishing writing, the whole work is done, but some revisions and proofreading are necessary. However, that’s not it.

Most writers think that an excellent article should just inform and help the readers find answers in the process, which is true,  in context, but much more must be done to develop an interest in the contents you create.

Before starting the writing part, you must imagine your contents are like pages of a book: each page must lead you directly to the next one. This continuity concept can be perfectly applied to your articles, and if you manage to keep your readers be in expectation for the next one, you’ll be having your blog filled with viewers waiting for the next publication.

Readers need to feel identified with the content they’re reading, so they must be drawn to the emotions you put and how much effort there is. If you manage to trigger strong emotions in the ones who read your articles, the numbers will show at the end of the day.

Another point to consider, and a pretty logic one, is that readers want to know what’s going on today, not a review of something that happened years ago. Fresh contents get attention faster as they’re on everyone’s lips, this is the so-called trend. Take advantage of things that are trending for your readers, and they’ll be thankful to you by sharing what you wrote.

At 786.Marketing we are always on the look for new things to expand our knowledge in this ever-changing marketing business. If you want to stay up to date, get in contact with us and you’ll have a constant source of information to check.

Find something worth publishing and make it viral. It's all up to your writing skills.

Influencer Marketing: Partnership and Engagement

Nowadays, adverts are still globally used by the companies, as a way to reach prospects, and their effectiveness on business is the main reason why they haven’t faded away. The problem with adverts is that people are already tired of it everywhere, with false claims, and the lack of individuality behind their message. Nonetheless, it doesn't mean that advertising doesn’t sell, it means that a percentage of prospects have lost interest in this way of selling. In the end, people only want to feel that they’re buying something real, and the best proof of it is when they get recommendations. Here is where influencers come as a solution.

People can relate to something when they see someone they trust saying the products is proven to work. Influencers have the capability to raise the awareness of the public towards a certain product or service, as they have built confidence from the followers. Their effectiveness in campaigns results as an improvement for companies who partner with them.

Influencers are not necessarily an individual, and they can represent a brand, person, or place. It’s important to develop agreements that benefit both parts, to establish a proper partnership with an influencer; like giving free samples of your product providing premium benefits.

Influencer marketing is the best choice for both small business and larger companies. For a small business, it’s an opportunity to earn popularity and start with the right foot. In the case of larger companies, it helps them develop loyalty and further position their products.

The benefits of partnerships with influencers are a perfect branding opportunity for both sides of the deal. If you’re an influencer looking for a company to contact with, 786.Marketing is the best choice for you. We work with inbound strategies that will get you featured on the social media.

Freelance Marketing: A Guide for Success

There are many entrepreneurs on the run today. For example, Ebay started off as a personal standalone project that grew due to the increasing traffic the web made. Spotify started off with two guys (Daniel Ek and Martin Lorentzon) in an apartment, and years after its first public beta, Spotify becomes a worldwide success, making partnerships with big brands like Playstation, Android, Mac, Facebook and Twitter.

The important thing to note is that many business or famous brands didn’t just start being big and successful. And many of these started off from freelancer entrepreneurs who had an idea, and after polishing it, the creation of a successful brand.

Freelancers break the mold of office work, they work under their parameters and establish the rules. This freedom allows them to create and develop their brand with no restraints.

If you’re willing to walk this road as a freelancer in the marketing business, you must have these things in mind:

  • Defining your brand: your personality, mission and objectives. You need to be very precise when making those if you’re willing to convince your clients in the future.
  • Your business: Let others know what is your business all about: Is it about content marketing? Will it be about designing logos? Your niche must be entirely clear for business.

As a freelancer, you must be the one in charge of knowing which will be your target market, the costs of your services, marketing plans and set personal goals.

Have a personal folder with examples of what you’re capable of depending on your type of business. For example, if you’re a graphic designer it would be wise to have a set of your creations with you, both in virtual and physical formats.

In this case, the company is YOU, so it’s your responsibility to have a well-structured start. After having that cleared up, your next goal is to reach your niche and show them what you have to offer.

In this part of the process, it’s your responsibility to create a solid image in your client's minds that will determine whether they’ll take the deal or walk away. Don’t feel discouraged if you get a couple of denials at first; this is part of the process.

Freelancer marketing is about selling your capabilities as a brand. You don’t need to become a “Facebook” or “Twitter” overnight,  you must begin at small pace and success will just come by itself. At 786.Marketing we create the image of our clients from rock bottom until the branding process ends. After the brand is created, we make sure it gets to the places our customers want, and even beyond.

10 Marketing Words To Sell

In the business world, things might seem to work differently, with the negotiations, sales and the establishment of deals. But the truth is that every process collaborates with the same structure a social environment has: Communication, relationships, trust, identity, feedback and so on. These are why an individual can represent a brand in the same way a brand accounts for a group of employees.

To put things in perspective, artists represent a brand themselves: their daily lives, actions, decisions and even mistakes are a reflection of their success or failure in their respective jobs. What does this all mean? That’s easy to answer: it means that every action you do (collectively or as an individual) has its consequences.

Marketers know the importance of building confidence in their relationships with client prospects, so they make sure they feel comfortable about buying. For you to reach every one of their goals, every single detail needs to be taken into consideration, even the words you use.

Confucius said, “Without knowing the force of words, it is impossible to know men.” This quote states the importance of the right use of words to get what you seek. Here’s a list of 10 marketing words you can use in your favor:

Proven: nothing is more trustful than something that is proven to work. If there’s evidence of the quality of what you do, clients won’t hesitate to invest in it.

Guaranteed: Nothing sells better than a guaranteed service. If you work on ensuring your clients needs fulfillment, you’ll have a handful of loyal buyers.

Wealth: If your company is the example of money and resources, you’ll bring customers to your desk in no time. Wealth is related to stability, fortune, and abundance.

Success: This word might be cliché and everything, but it also happens to be the goal of every single company out there. Success contains everything in one word: happiness, profit, progress, prosperity, and gain.

Value: If something is worth spending your money on, wouldn’t just pay it without hesitating? When something is valuable, you find gratification for acquiring it.

Benefits: What is the difference between a 5-Star and a 3-Star hotel? No, not just the number of stars but the number of advantages. It won't be so hard to decide which is a better choice if you offer more benefits than the competition.

Worth: Most people make this question before buying a product or paying for a service: “Is this worth it?” If this issue pops up in your client’s mind, you will see it in the look on their faces as you talk. When something is worth selling, there’s no need for excessive advertising and publicity; the service just sells itself.

Trendy: This word doesn’t stand just for fashion and Twitter topics. The company that manages to dominate the market tendencies today will have a safe position tomorrow.

Comfort: Give a doubtful client something no one else had offered yet, and you’ll have a loyal purchaser. Comfort in sales is all about making your deals appealing and making agreements that satisfy both parts.

Premium: This word denotes a high-quality service. There’s no better word to show the capabilities of your company than this one.

As you can see, the power of words is not limited to sales or negotiations, as they also affect the way your business interacts with clients. Choose your words very carefully, and the results will reflect in your numbers. From the little subtle details to the whole picture, that’s the way we work at 786.marketing, we are never short of words when it’s about selling.

Using these properly will influence your clients and convert those words into sales.

5 Ways to Make Your E-Mails Visually Appealing

The way we approach customers says more than the product or service itself. Clients want to get good attention from sellers, which is a key to developing solid relationships with your customers.

Reaching potential prospects is not limited to the real world. There are many ways to catch people on social networks. Most options are based on giving them contents that develop engagement to your brand and maintaining that connection between your brand and your viewers. E-mail Marketing is one of the ways to develop trust, give brand awareness, and even close deals.

The importance of e-mail marketing should not be just about sending mails with information of interest. Details should also be taken into consideration for the making of a proper e-mail. Here are 5 Ways to make your e-mails visually appealing:

  1.    Individuality: Adapt your e-mails to every single client or set of clients, this is a way to show them how much effort and interest you put into the process of communicating with them.
  2.    Font and typewriting: Fonts like Avenir, Proxima Nova and Gotham have styles that are appealing to read. This might seem like an unnecessary tool, but it isn’t, the font you choose can impact your clients positively.
  3.    Images: Add details related to your brand as a part of the e-mail, with contact information for the clients to have in hand. Visual contents always stay in people’s minds, so adding brand-related things to your e-mails will be very useful.
  4.    Contents: You need to be concise with the contents of an email; too many words will bore the reader. Send them directly to your blog for further information. Give them a list of the contents you have published weekly, so they access and check it themselves.
  5.    Formality: Communicate assertively with your clients, address them formally, and be respectful at all times.

Email marketing is not only about always sending things to your clients, but about doing it properly and in a way that attracts the viewers. Remember, your sole goal is to convert those viewers into potential customers and create channels to improve your brand perception on the social media.

Important Sale Dates for Marketers

For marketers, there’s no better way to appraise success but by getting positive reviews and comments from clients. Inbound marketing assures the process of selling reaches its desired goal: the creation of necessity, a need for clients to consume.

As a company, you’ve developed strategies that succeed. Your numbers are green and up, sales are great, and clients are satisfied, but something seems to be off in the process.

You check your procedures, the standards of the product and even check the feedback you’ve been receiving. It’s all good, and there’s nothing wrong with those areas. This is the moment where you decide to check the sale dates and find the answer. It wasn’t the product or the strategies; it was the timing that you did not take into consideration.

For example, imagine you’re off for some fishing time, you have all your equipment for the occasion. But when you reach the place, there’s a storm raging. At this rate, it’s only natural you’ll be getting back home empty handed.

The market runs just as the sea does, there’s a time for everything. The first thing any seller must do before launching any product to the market, you must be checking the right date for this project.

As a result, for example, you can surely expect success from selling rugby’s merchandise in the Six Nations Championship season. April Fools raises the sales of any prank toys store, or in the World Photo Day (August 19), Instagram will probably add some tags to create engagement in users from this Social Media.

If you follow the idea, the only thing you have to do now is to establish your new calendar depending on what it is you’re trying to sell. Compared to an ordinary day, if you choose a date when your product might get more attention, you’ll succeed in no time.

At 786.Marketing, we never let a date slip from our projects, as we develop contents to have loyal viewers. We take advantage of those special dates to create interest from our clients. Contact us, and you’ll be up to date and front with your sales.

If you're willing to launch a product, choose dates that are beneficial to sell it on.
