Your customers are utilizing many different ways to connect with brands and each other these days. Whether that is social media, email, or their phones, there are a multitude of ways to reach your customers. From educating them on products and services, thanking them for their support, or following up on an event or sales call, companies need to ensure they are reaching them on all of these different mediums. Here’s why multi-channel marketing is important and why you should be taking full advantage of it.
Reach your customers where they are. By using different mediums to get your message across, your customers are bound to receive it. Gain this exposure by using the tools that they are already using. From all of the various social platforms like Twitter and Facebook to good old direct mail, emails, and phone calls, there are plenty of ways to get your marketing message to the right people; you just have to utilize them.
Targeted Messages. Not everyone uses the same exact channels. To reach the demographic, you need to pick and choose the right channel and the right time for that group. Multi-channel marketing lets you do just that and helps you to keep up with those users who are on-the-go or only choose to be on certain channels.
Engagement. Engagement. Engagement. Utilizing a multi-channel campaign increases your customer engagement. Responses create those conversions and conversations needed to drive sales. This gives the opportunity to talk and engage with customers more frequently and in an interactive and innovative way. By creating the correct messaging, you are enabling your customers to speak up, ask questions, collaborate, and provide feedback instantaneously.
Results. Think about it; the more channels and touch-points used equals more data. A multi-channel marketing campaign will increase your sales and ROI since it presents more opportunities to connect with those targeted customers at the various stages of the buying process. You can receive plenty of results and data analytics on your customers on each channel used. Many channels, such as social media sites, also have their own measurement systems to make it easier to collect this data.
Customer Satisfaction. Being on plenty of channels and platforms gives you the ability to meet the customer where they are, and where they would prefer to be met. Customers feel in control and enjoy the options to choose how they will respond to your marketing endeavors. Multi-channel marketing strategies keep customers happy by giving them the option of when and where to spend their time or money.
