Do you want to know how important campaigns are for your business? Read on!
What are campaigns?
A campaign is a specific action that aims to generate results in the short, medium or long term. Therefore, they are a great way to measure the efforts made in a company so that the return brings benefits.
There are many different types of campaigns, each with a different objective and audience. The model chosen depends on the company’s intention when developing a campaign.
When you start planning a campaign, it is necessary to think about the target audience, the persona, its main objective and, mainly, its results for your business.
It is also necessary to establish a budget for all the action and the format: will it be in video? Sponsored? A commercial? You need to think about how best to attract new customers and make them delight in your business.
How important are campaigns?
Campaigns can be great ways to expand your audience and let as many people know about your brand as possible.
You can choose to do seasonal campaigns, like Mother’s Day or Halloween, for example.
Many brands that are market leaders today started with specific campaigns and established themselves as industry giants. For example, when you read the phrase “I love it all so much”, which company do you think of? McDonald’s, right?
However, when executed wrongly, the campaign can be a disaster, as for example the Italian brand Dolce & Gabbana, which made an action with Chinese women trying to eat pizza with chopsticks, and were accused of racism.
In addition, Burger King also specializes in seasonal campaigns: every year they perform a different action on Halloween. By 2020, everyone who arrived at a restaurant with a broom would get a free Whopper.
Therefore, a well-executed campaign can define the future of your brand.
