SM Print – Benefits of Printed Marketing

How Printed Media Can Benefit your Business

Over the last decade or so there has been a dramatic rise of digital publishing and marketing, digital marketing has opened new marketing channels and techniques which have provided agencies with new avenues.
However, when you use both print and digital marketing tactics to complement each other, both you and your target audience members benefit.

We’ve compiled a few reasons why printed materials can improve your overall marketing strategy…

Reason No.1: Reach a Wider Audience

As well as reaching a key target audience, printed publications also captures the reader’s attention. People choose to read magazines or print advertisements, meaning the document is thoroughly in their hands – giving total focus. The reader isn’t multi-tasking or allowing the content to glide past them on a screen, which means the reader is engaged with the publication for longer.

Reason No.2: Memorable Products

Well-crafted print media can stand out and make more of a lasting impression. The ability to touch, see and feel a piece of marketing material help your customers or clients remember your business and return after a positive customer experience. Thought and time go into a print publication, making the final product more relevant for a longer period of time. Memorable products can include: leaflets, brochures, stickers, business cards and much more.

Reason No.3: Brand Loyalty

Loyal customers help the sustainability of your brand and your business, print materials can go a long way towards helping you build a loyal customer base.

For example, a loyalty card, say you where the owner of a coffee shop offering a loyalty card stating “Buy five coffees, receive a sixth one free” reinforces your customer to return when they feel as though the can receive a unique benefit they can’t get anywhere else, enforcing them to take care of their loyalty card. Although not every business needs loyalty card, but providing promotional materials is a good way to build customer loyalty, in return rewarding you with increased business.

Reason No.4: Generates Sales

Many businesses employ a wide range of marketing methods, including television adverts, digital adverts and print advertisements. While each advertising method has its unique benefits, studies have shown the highest return on investment of all marketing mediums.

Reason No.5: Unlimited Reach

The use of print media covers a versatile range of materials, in-comparison to digital media offering its essence in one experience – a flat, texture less screen. Print media goes further than this and can virtually be performed on anything from business cards to brochures, USB drives to mugs and even vehicles and clothing. Print media can turn anything into a billboard to promote your business, its products, services and brand.
