Marketing channels provide ways in which goods and services can reach the consumer from the producer. In today’s digital world, there are various marketing channels that a business owner can use. Some of these cost the owner money while others are free. Business owners have to carry out proper research and identify the most suitable channel for their type of business. Facebook is one example as it is one of the most widely used marketing channels all over the world. It is free and easy to use, and all a marketer needs to do is create a business page and start posting their items.
Other social media platforms such as Twitter and Pinterest are great tools for small business marketing. They are easy to use and free of charge. For Twitter, all a business owner has to do is open a Twitter account and start attracting followers with engaging tweets so that they can become customers. With Pinterest, a business owner has to only post inspiring visual content and images to capture customers interest in their brand. A business owner cannot go wrong by choosing to use these two platforms to market their goods and services as it enables them to have followers all over the world.
Even in the digital world, there are many people, especially those in the age bracket of 50 years and above, who still heavily rely on TV, newspapers and radio as a source of information and entertainment. As a business owner, such target markets should be put into consideration. TV Ads are very effective and, though costly, they truly capture and convince viewers that they really need a certain service or product. The same applies to radio ads as listeners get captured by great adverts and are lured into purchasing. Placing an advert in a newspaper will also not escape the eye of a keen reader.
