5 EOFY marketing tactics you should know
There is a quote that’s commonly shared across the marketing world:
It was said by Stephan Vogel (of the internationally renowned agency Ogilvy & Mather), and it sums up the benefits of creative marketing perfectly. By adopting a more artistic approach, you’re more likely to catch the eye of your audience. In turn, this helps you stretch the value of your advertising dollar.
But this doesn’t mean you need to create a grand work of art. All you need to offer is a bit of novelty. For example, look at how the startup Shrooly advertises their home-grown mushrooms on Facebook:
Is it real footage? It doesn’t matter! The time-lapse video is simple, striking, and it makes you want to watch until the end. Shrooly isn’t waiting for customers to Google discounts for home mushroom kits. Instead, they’re putting out ads to draw people in. If you can show your products with a little bit of flair, it’ll make that ‘50% off’ banner even juicier when it drops.
Social media is an excellent tool for reaching an active audience. As EOFY approaches, you can capitalise on the power of platforms like Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, and TikTok to reach millions of bargain hunters. With just a small nudge (and a little investment), your special offers can be bounced around all kinds of audiences.
Consider the success of the award winning Lil Jif Project, an advertising campaign that blew up on TikTok in 2022. Jif, the American peanut butter brand, challenged users to post a video of themselves trying to rap – after eating a spoonful of peanut butter.
- Respond to customer inquiries quickly and courteously.
- Train staff on products and promotions in advance.
- Make sure your customers are happy with their purchase, even after the sale is over.
- Generate fast, on-brand responses across the organisation
- Make simple templates for content creation
- Build on your brand with every customer interaction
