I’ve always had a passion for sales and marketing, so after 13 years in retail product sales I started Clear Print to help companies market their products and services. Prior to the Internet, the best way to reach a targeted audience was to print and mail postcards, self mailers, envelope mailers, brochures, catalogs, price lists, etc. Today we have multiple marketing channels for reaching out to prospects and customers.
I’ve been doing much research on cross media marketing, cross channel marketing, multichannel marketing, you name it. There’s a wealth of information on the subject; it can be complex, technical and confusing! Simply put, it’s the combining of traditional media (such as print) with electronic or digital marketing; which encompasses websites, SEO, Yelp, social media like Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, blogs, email blasts, podcasts, Instagram, etc. Marketing executives have sooooo m-a-n-y choices!
Today I realized the simplicity of it all: Establish a communication line with prospects and customers by capturing their attention wherever it happens to be. Then deliver a consistent message of interest to them. For business-to-business marketing (B to B) a good website, blog, effective SEO and LinkedIn, coupled with printed product literature and direct mail would comprise the bones of an effective marketing campaign. For business-to-consumer (B to C) one might add an emphasis on Facebook, Twitter and other social media.
Good product packaging is vital, too. Paperboard folding cartons, corrugated cartons, point-of-purchase displays and product labels are part of the mix.
