Marketing campaigns are very important during the DSS as in order to stand out between all the amazing offers you must be truly special, some great techniques for business owners are:
Samples that makes your clients stop
If you are a restaurant - try giving samples. A sample showcase why your product is so good that they can’t help but to buy more.
Companies that are in the food and restaurant industry (F&B) have been doing campaigns inside large supermarkets setting up stands where sample tasters say something like - ‘‘Dear Miss, try this cheese stick!’’ or even ‘’Here you go sir, try our yogurt - you'll get 4 for the price of 2 only today.’’
What do you think you can sample out with an impact?
Leverage Social Media
Use your online presence to let your followers know about all the offers you have. Another great way to leverage social media is by finding micro-influencers with a couple of thousand followers and offering up your space for them to do a free event. We recommend influencers with less than 10k followers for the best impact.
Most people love the idea of teaching in-person rather than online because it allows them to interact with their followers. So for example, if you sell makeup invite a makeup artist to teach a special look at your shop.
It'll spark the interest of people passing by and visiting your shop. These are just a few marketing tricks and we can't wait to see what creative ideas you'll come up with to market this year.
