“Only when you bring value to others, will you bring value to yourself” (Michael Powell). Your brand value will only increase if your company is able to provide true value to your customers first. The 4 P’s of your marketing mix can help you decide what value to provide to customers and how to best communicate that value. Your marketing mix is part of your marketing strategy. The 4 P’s of the marketing mix outlines the right product (or service) to sell, the right price to sell it at, the right place to deliver it, and the right promotions to get it known. Value, of course, should be at the heart of every “P.”
“A man who stops advertising to save money is the man who stops his clock to save time” (Henry Ford). More importantly, the man who advertises without an effective advertising strategy is a man awaiting failure. Advertising strategies are the blueprints that help businesses sell products or services to consumers. New products that will be launched or old products that need to be marketed should be accompanied by an effective advertising campaign. An advertising campaign is a set of advertising messages revolving around a single idea and is designed based on the advertising strategy. Advertising efforts can build brand awareness and increased sales for the company.
