Too many people forget the importance of offline marketing, these days. It is somewhat normal, since we have moved even deeper into the virtual world, throughout the last two years. However, those that incorporate offline marketing to their overall presence, are the ones that will end-up with the best results. Here are five offline marketing strategies that you need to add to your global plan.
Taking Part in Exhibitions
Being seen by your clients and the rest of your industry through e-mail marketing is one thing. Being present at exhibitions, and meeting them live, is a totally different one. You need to be present in as many industry events as possible. And to get the best visibility, you will need a pop-up display that is easy-to-use and covered with vibrant colours. The idea, in such events, is to be seen by all, so go bold and make sure that no one goes away from the exhibition without keeping you at the top of their mind.
Promotional Items: A reminder that You exist
Promotional items have the longest longevity of all marketing tools, whether online or offline. They have the capacity to be there, when you are not. It is the best way to remind clients and prospects that you can provide them with what they need, at the moment they make their decisions inside their office. A pen, a mug or a mouse with your logo on it, will do the trick. It will provide you with a step ahead of your competitors.
This is an important element for companies that sell products and services to consumers. The best way to close deals rapidly, is to come into contact with your client base, and there is no better place to do that than on the street, or inside a shopping centre. Make sure to take some promotional items with you, so they can become a reminder later on, for those who haven’t made their decision yet.
Zoom and Skype can be considered as meetings these days, but it is still much better to be in front of a potential client, to close a sale or to plan a test, later on. That is why it is still important to try and meet with your clientele, as often as possible, one on one.

Sponsor Live Events
Finally, if your budget still has space to fill, you can decide to sponsor a live event. Make sure it supports a cause, as individuals have become more aware of the importance of helping others.
