The spring season officially kicked off earlier this week, making now the perfect time to get your seasonal marketing efforts underway. With an invigorating, renewed energy on the horizon and in your customers, consider refreshing your marketing approach to enhance the way your organize your business.

Here are our tips on how to make the most of the spring season:


Review Your Marketing Copy

Take the time to do a thorough audit of your existing marketing materials and messages, and think about things from your customer’s viewpoint. Look at what you presented in the last calendar year, and more importantly what ideas you implemented that were successful versus those which were not. Does your offer conjure up excitement? Are you showing how to solve common problems or make their lives more efficient? How can you alter things to create a more resounding effect? The more data you can pull from what you have done already, the better chance of success you create for yourself in the future. If you feel like your writing abilities could use a revision, consider improving your copywriting abilities or look into hiring someone who is a professional writer.

 

Review Your Imagery

If the design and templates of your marketing materials seem dated, it’s best to look into how you can update them so that they are relevant and keeping up with what similar businesses in your industry are providing. Creative design is continually updating, and your marketing tools must keep up to remain on the cutting edge.

 

Enhance Your Audience

Take a look at where you are targeting people for how you sell products and services. There may be some areas you haven’t fully considered that could provide a huge opportunity for increasing your customer base. Conversely, if you have been focusing your efforts on only one market, now may be the perfect time to consider moving into other areas and appealing to new groups, by developing a new marketing strategy concurrent with your existing one.

 

Attend Events and Get The Word Out

The Spring season is a great time for businesses to remind customers both pre-existing and new about what they have to offer, now that more people are out and about in their leisurely and professional pursuits. One of the best ways to do this is through attending conferences and trade shows related to your industry. Here, you can freely network, hand out your business card and other goodies, and most importantly raise your profile with would-be customers. Make sure you are well prepared for anything that may come your way when attending these, as it can be a huge opportunity for those who plan in advance.



Market Outdoors

The best part about spring is being able to enjoy the seasonal warmth of the outdoors. More importantly, it affords an extra space of awareness for you to consider enhancing brand recognition where more people are likely to be. Yard signs, door hangers, vinyl banners are just some of the types of marketing collateral which are paramount in this area, that you can add to your strategy.



Look at How You Can Help Your Customers

Your business may be designed around making your target audience’s lives better, but to go the extra mile and really provide excellent customer service is what separates an average business from a great one. This will not only benefit them, but help to instill new and repeat business for yourself. Consider creating marketing materials that give helpful ideas and strategies for your customer’s concerns, or provide information online that they can enjoy and share freely among their friends and family - all the while increasing your brand recognition and positioning you as a trusted expert.
