It's no good resting on your laurels in this time of economic downturn. Many businesses fall down when recession strikes because they withdraw from all marketing activity and potential development. Now more than ever, businesses need to be striving to expand and diversify their business, attract new customers, increase market share and sell more to existing clients. It is not an easy feat with the majority of businesses, large or small, requiring external help in achieving this. Fortunately there is an abundance of specialist full service agencies that can help you in growing your business. The key services they can provide generally fall under four main categories Media, Digital, Creative and Print.
Under each category there is vast scope for exploiting your services/products to your market and a worthy advertising agency will work closely with you to recognise these opportunities. They should listen to you and understand your needs, not only realising your aspirations but complying with your budget too. Picking an Advertising Agency that is fully integrated means that even though you may not as this time be thinking of all of the below, anytime in the future this could change and you still manage to deal with only one contact:
Media will cover all avenues of press from TV, Radio and 'Out of Home' campaigns including huge billboards to small advertising on tube trains exploring the most effective way for your business to stand out from the competition.
Digital will cover everything online from pay per click campaigns, search engine optimization, web design, email marketing and digital tracking. As the internet continues to grow it is crucial that every business has a presence online and utilising an advertising agencies skill in these aspects will deliver direct responses to your business.
Creative will cover everything from rebranding a company including all marketing literature, logos, business cards, stationary and brochures to smaller campaigns and regular marketing activity through flyers and catalogues. The sky really is the limit when it comes to creative.
Print will ensure that all of your literature and creative work will be successfully transferred to print; a bad print will ruin the best design so it is critical that this works for you.
