Outdoor Marketing: Tactics to Use for Your Physical Store

Some business owners focus too much on promoting their business online. They believe that the best way to win customers is to go digital. Taking your business online will provide you with impressive benefits.

However, you should never neglect other marketing tactics simply because you want to do better for online customers. If you have a physical store, you will need to make efforts to ensure that you also target local customers. You have to make sure that you can attract more people and encourage them to visit your store. For you to do this, outdoor marketing tactics can help boost your brand’s popularity.

Outdoor Marketing Tactics

Marketing strategies nowadays are focused on increasing website traffic or making more online sales. However, you should still implement outdoor marketing whenever you can, especially if you have a physical store. Online marketing is beneficial for e-commerce businesses. However, local stores and small business owners still need to include outdoor advertising tactics to boost their brand.

Keep in mind that people are still looking for impressive customer experience from stores. To make sure that you meet their expectations, you need to ensure that people can recognize your brand. One of the best ways to do this is by building an impressive store. You need to ensure that this building stands out so that people can see it. Here are other practical ways to implement effective outdoor marketing strategies:

  • Draw more customers through outdoor signages-Let people know that your store exists by displaying large and noticeable exterior signages. Make sure that these signs can quickly grab anyone’s attention. You can also put up LED signage to make your store visible even during nighttime.
  • Place your ads where people can see it-If you are planning to put up a billboard or any other type of large marketing sign, make sure that you place it correctly. That means you have to ensure that you place it in a spot where there is a lot of foot traffic. This way, more people will notice it.
  • Consider guerilla marketing-This type of marketing is still one of the most effective promotional strategies for businesses. If you want to boost brand awareness, you can try this strategy and place your ad in the right locations. Make sure that it will create a strong and lasting appeal to people who can see it. Also, ensure that it gives out the right message.

You can also consider providing your customers with a parking space so that they don’t need to be in a rush when visiting your store. Make sure that you have reflective thermoplastic road marking paint on your parking lot. Place these markings in other areas outside your store as well. That will help increase road safety for your customers. Aside from this, potential customers will not mind if they stay longer while browsing your products or getting your services. Providing them with a space to park their vehicles can help them assure that their cars will remain safe while they are shopping.

Make sure that you always prioritize your customers whenever you have a new marketing strategy in mind. Also, if you will display advertisements outdoors, make sure that people will notice it immediately. It will also help your business if you can create an excellent and lasting impression by using useful outdoor marketing tools. Let these suggestions help your brand get all the recognition it deserves. Always deliver customers quality through products, services, and advertising tools.

Go Skateboarding Day is June 21st!

Mark your calendars and grab your board because June 21st is Go Skateboarding Day!!! You don’t need to go to a skate park specifically, maybe it’s just a parking lot near your house, or your sidewalk or patio. Just watch out for those pesky no skateboarding signs!

Our little family isn’t the best skateboarders. We try and fail a lot, but ya know what, that’s okay. At least we are trying and just having fun and I think that is what ultimately skateboarding is about. Just having fun, especially with the people you love.

I would list the various skate parks here in the St. Louis area but I have no idea which ones are closed still due to covid-19 or which ones have opened up. So I will leave that up to you to decide on where you are gonna skate. I know the park near us is still closed, so we will be checking out some other spots. Be sure to follow me on Twitter and Instagram to find out where we will be skating and if you are up for it, join us!

A Little Family Camping

With everything going on in the world right now we had to get away for a night. So my wife called around and we got a campsite, packed our bags, loaded up the van and took a drive south.

We typically go camping in larger groups, family, friends, people we barely know… But this would be our first time camping with just us, no extra people, nobody else is responsible for bringing anything extra, we had to make sure we packed it all and had a plan for everything.

I would say we were pretty successful for our first camping trip […] Continue Reading…
