Why marketing your business is so important!

If I had £1 for every time I heard “I don’t have a marketing budget” I would be a very rich woman.

Every business needs to shout out about it’s services, or products. Take your eye off the ball and your competitors will be grabbing the limelight. You only need to think of manufacturers of tonic water to realise how quickly everything can change. The marketing campaign by Fevertree worked a dream. How often do you hear people asking for Gin and Fevertree tonic these days?

5 Top Tips for Engaging with Regional Media

Have you ever wondered how to make it into the magazines?  How to put your product into the hands of the right people?  How to get your brand visible?  How to share your fundraising news or latest event?

Fiona Minett, founder of Boss Your PR, has over 10 years experience in PR, working with SMEs across the UK and placing them in the likes of Sunday Times Style, ELLE Decoration, VOGUE, House Beautiful, Woman & Home and many more.  Here are 5 Top Tried and Tested PR Tips that will get you moving on the right track to nailing some great regional coverage.  We’ve got an amazing selection of regional media available to us, with hiya bucks leading the charge.  So, what is the best way in?

  1. Nail your offering: Get clear on your strengths and points of difference.

Looking at your brand or ‘story’ objectively will start to give you an idea of how you stand out from your competitors.  Understanding what makes your offering unique will allow you to position yourself as an expert in your field or share your news in the most optimum way.

  1. Share your expertise and show why you are great at what you do and why your product or service is brilliant.

Sharing your expertise or news can be done through all of your outward communication; through your social media, press coverage, your website, blog content and networking.  People want to feel an element of trust and of being informed by those that they are looking to buy into.  Sharing your knowledge with them encourages interest and, ultimately, loyalty.

  1. Good photography is crucial.

If you are a product business you need cut out photography – this is as simple as a photograph can be.  Product on a white background.  If you are a service business you need profile (headshot) photography and shots of you in action.  With any media opportunity you are likely to have to provide some kind of photography and this will need to be high resolution, 300dpi.  If you are sharing news of an event or fundraiser, you will need some high quality images to meet the standard needed for print media.

  1. Apply for regional or industry awards.

There are always some great PR opportunities to come out of this type of promotional activity from both being shortlisted as well as winning.  Regional media is great to share this type of news with; a local success story is always winning content and winning or being nominated for an award will instantly raise your profile in the local community, business or otherwise.

  1. Make connections.

We are so lucky in Buckinghamshire with the range of regional print and online media that we are able to tap into and it’s really important to support this.  Build connections with regional media, share your news, place an advert, share promotional offers, run competitions.  Whether your business is region specific or not, regional media is invaluable for building a presence and community around you.  ‘hiya bucks’ is a great example of the regional media we have available to us, so let’s share our news!
