Marketing Methods for Startups
When it comes to starting a business, your most important activity is marketing. That’s because that way, you can get the word around that your business exists, so you’ll get some customers and profit from your venture.
And fortunately, there are many ways you can do that. For example, you could start ads, get influencers to speak about your product, and more. However, two methods stand out and help you grow tremendously.
First, you could do crowdfunding.
With it, you won’t need to invest a lot of money! Actually, you won’t need to have your product ready. All that is required is that you have a great prototype that people care about. Then with some marketing and PR, you could get funding from six figures to millions.
However, for this to work, you will have to build an audience first. That’s because, without it, it’s going to be hard to get anyone to pledge to your campaign. But once you get some people, Kickstarter will start promoting it, and getting to your crowdfunding goal will be easier.
And secondly, you could use stickers!
Now you might be thinking, how will this help my business out? Well, it does it indirectly! What you should do is pack a sticker or two for each order. Not only will you add some extra value to each order, but you might be able to promote your brand for free.
For example, if a customer sticks it to their laptop, your brand will be visible to other people in the coffee shop. And those who notice your branded sticker will more likely be interested in what you have to offer when seeing one of your ads. That’s because your business isn’t new to them.
So if you want to take advantage of this hidden marketing method, we recommend you print your custom stickers with Stickerapp. Not only will you get them for an affordable price, but each sticker will be made with high-quality materials.
