Adverts can make or break sales of any new product line. It’s important that you invest sufficient time, money and focus on them to create ads that pop and generate sales. Adverts can guide your customers towards making purchases in various ways - raising awareness of new products, providing information on new products and generally making your new products look and sound as appealing as possible. Here are some top tips that can help you to make quality ads for your latest product line!
Choose the Right Medium
First, you need to choose what type of adverts you’re going to run for your marketing campaigns. There are countless mediums to choose from and the right ones to invest in will depend entirely on your target demographic, the type of products you are selling, your budget and various other factors that are entirely individual to your business. You need to spend some time researching different options that are available to you and weighing up the cost versus the predicted outcome. Some good examples of adverts you may benefit from include TV and radio, billboards, posters, leaflets, flyers, PPC ads, social media ads, sponsored ads and so much more.
Video advertising is increasing in popularity on websites, social media and other platforms. Video advertising isn’t limited to the big screen or TV ads anymore. But this does mean that many smaller businesses are having to learn the basics of video advertising and dipping their toes in video ad space. You can outsource your video ads to companies who can product the final results for you, or you can begin to build an in-house team, who could easily function as part of your marketing department. Sometimes, one individual will be able to take care of everything, from story boarding to filming. If you have a larger budget, you could hire multiple staff, such as a storyboarder and a videographer. Make sure to invest in all of the equipment you need, from lighting to quality video camcorders to a dolly camera. You may also need to hire actors or hand models on a job by job basis.
Create a Content Calendar
There are likely to be countless types of ads going out. Few companies focus on one, single medium and (instead) many will have a number of ads on the go at once. This is why it’s so essential that you create some sort of content calendar. This will ensure that you and anyone else in your team knows what’s going out and when. It creates a consistent schedule of advertising, maximizing the results of any campaigns. From mailing list emails to social media posts, your content calendar can ensure you have a good idea of where, when and how your products are being advertised.
We’ve only just brushed the surface of creating quality ads for your business, but hopefully, some of the information above will help to guide your journey in the right direction. Bear them in mind and see the results!
