Small and midsized businesses (SMBs) are constantly faced with a primary challenge: where should they spend their marketing dollars spend their marketing dollars in order to generate the best ROI?

Analyzing, selecting and buying media used to be very simple. Then came the digital era and the proliferation of big- and small-screen options, social media, PPC advertising, SEO, SEM, events, sponsorships, community engagement, and OTT (over-the-top) advertising.

3 Steps of SMB Marketing Campaign.

Brand Building

The first step is to establish your brand in the minds of the target audience, creating consistent brand messaging across all channels. Great brands are consistent and compelling in all aspects of their communications — from the look, typeface, and colors of their logos to the tone of their communications.

Reaching Consumers at Every Touch Point

Reaching your audience has to be an omnichannel approach. This means that you need to know where your target audience is and then reach them on that channel. This can be one of the biggest challenges for small businesses with small budgets.

Authority in the Market

Building credibility and trust among your target base is key to achieving a loyal customer base. And when a customer comes to view you as a leading expert in your field, they’ll not only gain trust in your brand, but spread that trust to others.

In building your authority in the market, your marketing campaign should also include high-quality, relevant content on various channels that will position you the way you wish to be considered in the market.

FAQs: SMB Marketing.

The first step is to identify your customer’s touch points.

Every interaction with a prospective customer contributes to a company’s brand image. These interactions have the power to form or alter the way your potential customer perceives your brand, business, and offering (products/services you offer).

The various touch points impact a prospective customer’s purchasing decision and an existing customer’s brand loyalty. With intense competition and customers becoming increasingly discerning, it’s important to reach customers at various touchpoints.

While this requires a multichannel approach, businesses need to identify those touchpoints that yield the highest awareness and conversion results.

Types of Touch Points

– Human Touch Points – Customer interactions with sales representatives or customer service personnel

– Physical Touch Points – Interactions that include something tangible, where the customer can physically touch the medium

– Sensory Touch Points – Customer interactions that include viewing and listening
