Why Should You Use A Promotional Mix

What is a Promotional Mix? A promotional mix is referred to one of the 4 p's of the marketing mix. This involves 4 sections; Advertising, public relations, personal selling and sales promotion. It is important to consider this as it allows you to set clear goals when starting a campaign. A promotional mix is referred to one of the 4 p's of the marketing mix. This involves 4 sections; Advertising, public relations, personal selling and sales promotion. It is important to consider this as it allows you to set clear goals when starting a campaign. Why use a Promotional Mix within the planning of a campaign? To create a successful campaign. A promotional mix takes the 4 areas into consideration (advertising, public relations, personal selling and sales promotion). It will increase the campaign's success due to the areas that have been considered.   Advertising will allow your campaign to be seen by your audience and those who have interest. This is the main aspect because without using advertising from your promotional mix your campaign won't be as successful. This is because it won't have the promotion needed to allow your customers and audience to see the campaign. Public relations will handle all the comments and interactions. For example; if a potential customer responds to the campaign, they should get a response and inform them where they can find out more information. This will give your brand a positive view from the public because you are interacting with the audience and showing that you are a trustworthy brand/company.

5 Ways To Sell To First Time Buyers

 5 ways to sell to first-time buyers First-time buyers can come in at any stage of the sales funnel. They might just be browsing online or they might be at your checkout thinking whether they should make the purchase before all the budget is gone.   Let's face it most people like spending money to increase their own sales BUT, if they're a first-time buyer normally they want more information before they splash the cash.   Here are the top 5 ways to sell to first time buyers:   1. Testimonials Giving potential customer testimonials and even product reviews to look either for one specific product or a whole company overview. This will push first-time buyers over the edge if your testimonial is compelling. Make the review/testimonial short and effective, highlight stats and figures such as ".... has increased our sales by 50%" this will keep your first-time buyers engaged. Ask existing customers to get on board with good reviews, at the end of the day buyers still like to see what other buyers thought of the product.   2. Demonstrations Letting a potential customer see a demonstration of your product/service will show them exactly how it works. This will be valuable if competitors haven't got the same thing in place, you will be way more trustworthy towards a company if you see exactly what the product/service does.   3. Remarketing This is where you pay for "cheap" advertisement for example; you go to buy a pair of shoes from Amazon but end up cancelling. Later that day similar shoes display on another website such as Facebook, they then appear on another website etc. Remarketing allows you to target customers that have visited your website before. This will then follow your buyer around their searches which costs £0.00 until they re-click that ad and…

Blue Alligator Visits The Sales Innovation Expo

The Blue Alligator team attended the Sales Innovation Expo this week for the first time in a couple of years. Lots of useful hints and tips from various speakers throughout the day both on marketing and selling your products/services. Something that was also very useful was meeting some of the SAAS based providers and finding out a little more about how the bigger players in the world are hooking into each other. The daily sales seminar gave us a good insight on how we can use a different selling method when approaching certain customers and interacting with them. Some great hints and tips came out of it giving us some extra tools in the tool box for future use. Thanks Daniel Disney!

Very valuable information when looking at your google analytics data! Aside from all the business talk we took to the track and had a competition between us. Our sales manager came out on top but only because of the error from the apprentice on the last corner…   Keep an eye out, Blue Alligator are on track to innovate yet…

Updating Your Website Leads To More Enquiries

Modern styled website Updating your current website is one of the best and simplest ways to increase traffic to your website and increase sales. If your website is looking plain and outdated, then you might not be getting the amount of traffic you are aiming for. We learnt this from experience, since updating our website we've seen a huge increase in enquiries and traffic. This is because it looks modern, clear information about the company and what we provide.   Frequently updating blog posts and adding relevant information By frequently updating your blog posts and information on your website will engage the audience at a larger scale. This will also give the audience an overview of your company. When adding information to your website try and mix it up by not always talking about your company. Write about relevant topics such as trade shows if you're attending, different backoffice systems that can be used and much more.

By updating your contacts page it'll attract more customers as their first impressions will be that it is professional looking. It doesn't need to be flashy but it needs to be placed correctly and well presented.…
