Why You Should Use Posters in Your Next Advertising Campaign
In this increasingly digital world, it’s easy to think of print marketing as something of an anachronism when you have social media and Google Adwords, not to mention search engine optimization to help you attract as many customers as possible.
The thing is, although all of those digital marketing techniques, and many more, are very effective at attracting customers when implemented correctly anyway, they are not the only tools you have at your disposal.
Posters are still a thing and they can still be used very effectively. They may seem quite quaint, but they have a number of advantages that you should not ignore when it comes to marketing your business…
Poster ads are extremely visible
One of the best things about poster ad campaigns is that they are highly visible. You put a poster up and anyone who walks past it will, providing it is eye-catching enough, see it and therefore see your business.
Online marketing is great, but usually, people have to be looking for a thing before they find it, and that means that a lot of companies who only advertise online miss out on a lot of “passing trade” so to speak – those people who never knew they needed what the company sells. This is not so with posters, they catch anyone and everyone who walks past and that is why they still have immense value, even in the internet age.
Posters give you a captive audience
Another great thing about the use of posters in business marketing is that they give you a captive audience. If you put your posters up in a busy shopping center, at a popular local football match, or in a busy washroom, for example, people will have to look at them at least for a little while. So, providing the printers have made it eye-catching and you have written compelling copy, you should see a good few conversions.
Posters are cost-effective
Of course, one of the best things about posters as an advertising tool is that they are very cost-effective indeed. These days, you can get some very good deals at the printers. In fact, posters will set you back far less than trying to get your message out there via radio, TV, and even the internet unless you happen to be a whizz when it comes to SEO and digital marketing.
Posters are powerful
Posters are big, bold and use both words and images to create a thought or feeling. They are a very powerful means of tapping into the emotions of consumers and making them remember your message. This effect is only reinforced the more often they are viewed and since many people visit the same places many times, this is highly likely to happen.
As you can see, using posters in your next advertising campaign could be one of the best things you ever do for your business.
Of course, you cannot expect to just use posters alone and have the best results, but they are definitely something that should be a part of your marketing arsenal even now in 2022.
