Millions of people in the UK use various social media platforms, and advertising is one of the key sources of revenue for these social media companies. You can promote your startup business using the advertising algorithms developed by Facebook, Twitter, Instagram et al to advertise your product or service to your chosen audience.
Promoted posts on Twitter, Facebook and Instagram will see that your product is placed right higher in the rankings and into the feeds of potential clients, and if the advert is well designed and worded, it may well catch their eye.
Out-of-home advertising has been an incredibly popular and effective way of promotion for decades, but in today’s technology-laden market, there are more ways than ever of boosting your profile to people on their way to work or doing the weekly shop. From large billboards at the sides of major roads to animated displays in bus shelters and even bars, there are plenty of ways to capture the attention of your audience when they’re out and about.
If you think that a billboard or display is the right option for you, it’s crucial that you consider several factors before finalising any campaign:
- Your audience
- Length of display period
- Location of display
These options all play a big part in the effectiveness of any campaign, so consult with your advertising executive beforehand to ensure you make the most of your time in the spotlight.
Getting your startup company name out and about in your local area can prove invaluable for the reputation and the success of your business. A good way to do this is to lend your name to an event, team or organisation. Not only does it show that your business supports organisations and happenings in your local area, but it helps more people see your brand and may well pique their interest, which can lead to enquiries and sales from new customers.
Whether you want to stay local or spread your name around the UK, the perfect advertising campaign is out there waiting for you – you just have to find it!
