Creative Marketing

Creative Marketing Drives Sales

 

Creative marketing is utilized through 3 key mediums. They are meant to impact your clients senses and move them through the buying cycle. Have you ever saw a product and wanted it? What about a new service you heard about. Creative marketing applies to a clients senses with a handful of different medium options.

 

Below is a breakdown of the 3 Creative Marketing Services we offer at Empire Marketing.

Video Marketing

 

Video marketing is used in a number of ways. Whether you purchased commercial time and want to save 50% on production cost. Some have strong Youtube followings and like to interact through videos. Are you looking for a monthly Social Media series?

 

Video can portray a message only if your video gains and keeps the audiences attention. This is were Empire Marketing comes in. We will create, produce, direct, shoot and even supply the talent for the video. And we do all this for a fraction of the cost of our competitors. We shoot all of our video marketing in 4K resolution with our state of the art equipment. Need a drone for your video? We do that as well!

Graphic Design

 

First impressions matter. You know what they say: you only have one chance to make a first impression. Whether it’s a website or the logo in an email signature, potential customers will judge a business in just a few seconds based on visual appeal alone. High-quality graphic design gives businesses credibility—and that’s priceless. No matter how great a product or service, with poor design, it’s unlikely anyone will stick around the company’s website or keep its email long enough to find out.

 

Design can tell a story. Similarly, it’s important that people get a feel for what a business does even if they’ve never heard of it before. Thoughtful design evokes the right image in customers’ minds. The concept for a daycare center would be entirely different than that of a law firm. That’s a dramatic contrast, but it holds true in more nuanced ways as well.

 

Branding makes a company memorable. Solid graphic design provides branding consistency across every visual, customer-facing aspect of a business. A professional graphic artist will use precise colors, typeface, imagery, and mood for everything he or she touches. This way, customers have the same experience visiting a company’s website as they do reading its brochure. Think of it as a kind of alliteration—it helps the business become recognizable and memorable. Plus, consistency symbolizes professionalism, and professionalism symbolizes trustworthiness. It’s win, win…win.

 

Creativity can be a differentiator. If there’s one thing all small businesses have in common, it’s that they all face competition. And to set themselves apart, they generally have a handful of differentiators, whether those include pricing, quality, customer service, or something else entirely. But consider that creativity can help a small business stand out, too. A company’s visual communication plan serves many purposes, and making the business unique should be one of them.

 

Good design converts. A slick website is nice to have. A slick website that converts is even nicer. Design isn’t just about making things look pretty; effective design should entice and persuade. A smartly designed website can direct visitors to take action, like clicking a “buy” button for instance. A well-crafted pamphlet compels readers to keep turning pages. Professional graphic design has the potential to deliver measurable results for a small business.

Photography

 

There are so many benefits to having professional photos of your organization and the products you offer. Here are just five of the numerous reasons that every business should invest in high quality professional photography.

 

1. A Picture is Worth A Thousand Words
You’ve probably heard this adage before. These days pictures are worth at least a thousand words – probably more! Photos enable you to show your clients and customers what you have to offer rather than tell them. In this day and age, consumers like to see things for themselves before making a decision about a purchase. The internet has made this increasingly possible, which means photos and videos of your products and offerings are more valuable than ever before.

 

2. Your Media Represents Your Business
Often times the cost of professional photography makes it tempting for business owners to take photos themselves or find a lower cost alternative to hiring a professional photographer. If this thought crosses your mind, remember: your photos represent your business. Low quality, unprofessional photos will communicate the same about your organization and the products and services you offer. Your photos and your website are hugely important when it comes to making a first impression on customers. Don’t skimp on them!

 

3. Customers Want to Get To Know You
Stock photos are one alternative that some organizations consider when they feel a photo shoot with a professional photographer might be out of reach. While stock photos are certainly helpful for some purposes, they are not the best way to showcase your business. Why? Because they are not photos of your business.

 

When people visit your website, they want to get to know you! Stock photos don’t help them do that – and they could give people a false impression of what you have to offer. The best way for potential customers to get to know your business is by showing them actual photos of your business, your team members, and your products.

 

4. Images Can Help You Get Found On the Web
If your business has a website, you may have heard of search engine optimization, or SEO. SEO is the practice of strategically optimizing various elements of your website in an effort to help it perform better in the search engine ranking results. There are many elements to SEO, and one element is images.

 

Optimized photos can help your website get found in the image results and perform better in the overall search results. They can also help to engage customers and keep them on your site for longer, or encourage them to choose you over a competitor.

 

5. Professional Photos are Versatile Assets
When it comes to marketing your business online, you have probably heard the phrase “content is king.” This has been the case for a while now, and it definitely still holds true. But what many don’t realize is that photos are content – and they are a powerful, versatile form of content at that.

 

Online, photos can be used to make your website infinitely more engaging. They can be used to build your brand on social media, including Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, Pinterest, LinkedIn, Google+ and more. They can also be featured in blog posts and articles – the possibilities are endless.
