Consistency and Change

A company can't use the exact same marketing strategies day after day and still manage to stay on top of things. If you aren't keeping things new and if you aren't being sure to add variety to your marketing you might find your message getting stale, and your customers drifting away to other companies.

People want to have something new and they want to see something they never have before. You just can't use the same message forever. The same goes for the way you deliver that message to people. If you've been using nothing but brochure for two years or more than you might find people losing interest in you because they want to see something different.

It's always best to add variety to your marketing anyways because it helps to make sure that you're grabbing the attention of as many people as possible. Some people just aren't going to have interest in reading through a long brochure, but if you hand them a postcard you'll immediately be able to grab their eye.

Something to watch out for though is what you're doing when you're changing your marketing around. If you decided to go for something new you're going to need more time to get things ready because you aren't as acquainted with that particular marketing style.

One thing you can do to make sure that you still keep a strong presence in the marketplace is by having other smaller methods of marketing you can still make good use of while you're changing around your larger marketing campaigns.

Take something like folder printing for an example. Folders with your company name and logo on them aren't exactly the most active forms of marketing. They're good at getting your brand name out there, but little else. Sometimes that's all you need to do. If your company is already established than the main thing you might need to do is maintain a strong presence in the marketplace.

Of course, folder printing alone won't accomplish that, but it can hold you over while you're working on other larger things. Make sure you keep a steady supply of them on hand for just such occasions so that you won't have your name dropping off the market while you're working on new things.

There are other smaller methods of marketing to consider as well, and my point isn't to name them all. What I'm trying to point out is that you can still keep your name out there if you have a few basic, cost effective forms of promoting yourself.

These won't always be major forms of marketing, but they can still be plenty useful for when moments like this. You might not have a lot of active marketing out there during your transitional period, but that doesn't mean you can't keep up a strong passive marketing presence.
