05 Aug ask an advertising keynote speaker: how can you market a business?
Advertising keynote speakers and marketing futurists barely go a day without being asked: What’s the best way to promote a business? And what is the most cost-effective way to get the word out about an organization in the shortest amount of time? Our team is full of advertising keynote speakers – which means we figured we’d put the question to them. A few of the main types of marketing and promotions channels they say companies often turn to are:
- Print – Newspapers, magazines, brochures, billboards, flyers.
- Broadcast – TV commercials, radio advertisements.
- Online – Search ads, display ads, social media ads, native ads, banner ads, pop-ups.
- Mobile – SMS ads, in-app ads, mobile banner ads, etc. per top advertising keynote speakers.
- Outdoor – Billboards, posters, transit ads (buses, subway platforms).
- Product placement – Placing products in movies, TV shows, videos, music videos.
- Sponsorships – Sponsoring events, sports teams, causes.
- Direct mail – Letters, postcards, catalogs sent to home addresses.
- Telemarketing – Advertising keynote speakers say many firms are promoting via cold calling consumers.
- In-store – Posters, kiosks, price displays, at the checkout, on shopping carts.
- Branded entertainment – Creating entertainment content that integrates brand messaging.
- Experiential – Interactive brand events, promotions, tradeshow booths.
- Word-of-mouth – Getting consumers to share brand info with others.
