Have you ever been offered anything before?
How many of these have you accepted?
Offers exist in the world in every space, every life and every relationship. This also exists in marketing. Offers exist to benefit businesses and consumers. As a business creating offers, even periodically should be a strategy to integrate into the business model.
Here are 5 benefits of creating an offer.
Offers can increase the sale or purchase acceleration of new and existing products.
If there’s a product line that you want to increase the sale of, offers work well to achieve this. What if you have a certain product that hasn’t been receiving as much attention from the public as you would have wanted it to? Creating an offer with this product can increase visibility and lead to purchases on a larger scale. This method will open a demand for a product that in normal circumstances would be falling behind or just barely being purchased.
Offers can help with successfully launching a new product.
In the case of a new product even before it’s launch there is the need to raise awareness and open a demand for it. An offer can help you do this. Some companies give the consumers the opportunity to preorder the product to secure buyers as well make the consumers feel they will be a part of a wonderful experience to come. There are many strategies that are used to create an offer leading up to a launch.
Offers can get rid of stock that is close to expiry or obsolete.
What if you had goods that were close to expiring and as a business it would be hard to just dispose of them. Maybe then, you need to revisit strategy and create an offer. This will help you to quickly get these stocks off your hand and into the homes or hands of customers.
Offers make customers purchase your brand over competitive brands.
If you’re new in a very competitive market or have never been on the same level as some companies in your market, an offer can help you. An offer gives consumers a reason to buy from you instead of buying from your competitors. If you can promise them a favorable deal, even in a one time purchase, things will definitely start looking up for you.
Offers encourage trial usage which can lead to repeat purchase and brand loyalty.
If you can create an offer that can draw in customers even for a first time purchase then you’re on the right track. As offers work well with promotion, many businesses work on their promotional strategies that will guarantee them reach and even a thought in the consumer’s mind that they’ll just be trying it. From this experience a customer can decide if they want to continue to use this brand. Over time through good service and connecting with the customers an almost unbreakable bond is built between brand and customer.
Many companies may not want to use offers as they feel this will dilute their brand. If the offer is well thought out it can help organisations reach top line goals. Offers are great for encouraging potential customers to buy your product or sign up for your service. It can also boost short-term sales, attract new customers, prompt positive online reviews, and lead to repeat purchases.
