How do you keep up with your prospects and customers?

Do you know where they are?

I’ll let you in on a secret…

They are everywhere!

That’s why at GKIC we believe in a multi channel marketing approach.

You see if you’re not marketing to your customers multiple ways, you might not be reaching them.

Plus, when you consider that multichannel customers spend 3 – 4 times more than single channel customers do.

It’s worth focusing your time and effort to get this right.

More and more consumers today are becoming multichannel media users. According to research by Nielsen, 46% of smartphone owners and 43% of tablet owners said they use their devices while watching TV every day.

So what do we recommend at GKIC?

Here are a few examples…

•Print Ad – magazines, newspapers, flyers etc.

•Direct Mail – Printed sales letter mailed to your prospects.

•Phone – Never underestimate the power of picking up the phone to call your prospects. You also have the option to text and Whatsapp etc.

•Emails – Got an email list? You need one, probably the easiest way to reach your prospects and track/measure results immediately.

•Facebook Ads – Are great for reaching your ideal customers.

•YouTube Videos – Great place for cheap traffic.

•Podcasts – GKIC’s podcast is a fantastic resource with great interviews – check it out here!

In this week’s blog we’re going to look at podcasts and why you should be using them as part of your multi channel marketing.

How do you run a podcast in your business and get people to listen?

To create a podcast you need to be able to:

• Record audio files, such as an MP3. Audacity is an example of free software

• Host them.

Syndicate these files into what’s called an “RSS feed” so that it can be distributed through iTunes as well as downloaded or streamed on on-demand.

Get your content out there!

You see, a podcast allows you to reach a brand new audience.

Pros about podcasts

•Podcasts are easy to consume

•You can listen on the go

•Can be listened on multiple devices (smartphone, tablet, computer, MAC etc.)

•It’s not a content medium like a sales letter that requires attention

•Intimate connection with your prospects/customers

•Free to create!

Facts about podcasts taken from this article

•The podcast audience is 57 million Americans in total.

•64% of podcasts are being listened to on a smartphone or tablet.

•Weekly podcast listeners consume five shows per week on average

•One in four Americans ages 12-54 listened to a podcast last month.

What should you talk about?

REMEMBER- you shouldn’t keep all your eggs in one basket.

Repeating your sales message across multiple channels will definitely grab your prospects attention.

You just need to weigh up what works best for your business.

And track your promotions – this Google article could help you

You’d be surprised how many times I hear: “Nick, I tried running a print ad and it didn’t pull”

Or “My FB Ads aren’t getting enough interest”

And they give up.

When their lack of results are because they’re not doing it consistently.

I can’t stress this enough…

You need to:

•TEST

•MEASURE

•IMPROVE

I’d be amazed if anyone hits a homerun fresh out of the gate!

Keep working at it!

I know you have this!
