Product Advertising

Product Advertising

After manufacturing a product, a business still needs to sell it somehow. However, with so much competition on the market, doing it becomes impossible unless a company finds a way to let customers know about its existence. In other words, a successful business needs product advertising.

Whаt is product advertising?

Advеrtіѕеmеnt is the mоѕt соmmоn and famous mеаnѕ of popularising a рrоduсt. Through аdvеrtіѕіng, a manufacturer trіеѕ to reach an audience and hіghlіght the роѕіtіvе аѕресtѕ of a product аnd hоw іt іѕ bеnеfісіаl for соnѕumеrs. In соmmоn wоrdѕ, one can ѕау that advertising іѕ the аrt оf informing people of a product or service and its benefits.

Nowadays, along with the term ‘advertising’, specialists often use another word – ‘marketing’. Although these two have common goals, they are not the same. The former represents only a small part of marketing aimed at actual product demonstration while marketing involves other activities many of which don’t promote a product directly.

For example, a TV commercial is an ad and a part of a company’s marketing strategy. However, if the company publishes useful articles about the topic on its site, this is marketing because this content doesn’t actually advertise anything. Instead, it’s supposed to establish trusting relationships with potential and existing customers, to provide support, to engage visitors thus turning them into existing and returning customers.

Advertising in dropshipping business 

Since dropshipping is a type of ecommerce business, most such stores operate in the internet only. Besides, an efficient dropshipping store promotion requires a balanced marketing strategy, i.e. it cannot do with pure advertising alone. Therefore, owners use a number of promotion methods.

  • Social media marketing

SMM is rightfully considered an efficient, yet relatively affordable way to promote a small online business. Most social networks offer various promotion means including post boosting, advertisement placing, poles, etc. The most popular social media for business are Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, Pinterest, and YouTube.

  • Email marketing

Email marketing is a method of promotion that implies sending emails to customers. Such emails can contain both pure ads and various content that doesn’t promote a product directly such as newsletters, updates, useful guides, entertaining articles, etc. Before actually sending emails, companies first need to obtain email addresses of the people who could become their clients. Businesses usually ask site visitors to register and offer something in exchange like a discount or coupon.

  • Search engine optimization

SEO implies optimizing a website for search engines by writing texts that contain keywords. Whenever a search query coicides with a keywords on a page, there is a chance a search engine will show the given page in the results. Thus, proper SEO can increase a page’s organic traffic, i.e. the number of people who get to the site from search engines.

  • Content marketing

Content marketing is a general term referred to a whole range of methods aimed at promoting a product through useful and/or entertaining content. This strategy implies offering the audience valuable content related to the product without actually advertising it.

These are just some methods used by dropshipping stores for product advertising.
