There are several approaches to marketing practice in practice. One of them is Sensory Marketing.

 

Basically, we use the five senses of the human being to leverage sales, establishing a more optimized and complete communication, improving the experience of consumers.

 

Understand better, in practice, how sensory marketing makes the difference:

 

How it works?

Surely, you've learned all five senses in preschool time, but it's worth remembering. Are they:

  • Touch
  • View
  • Smell
  • Palate or taste
  • Hearing

 

The goal of any brand is to produce stimuli related to the five senses and communicate values. With sensory marketing, the senses are exploited strategically by the brands, increasing the potential of all its elements (whether in the promotional materials or the sales points).

 

The great advantage of using this strategy is to be able to increase sales significantly, because it directly affects the consumer's emotions. In addition, brand positioning and identity are reinforced in the marketplace through these practices over time.

 

 

Applying strategy

Now that you know how sensory marketing works, it's important to know some strategies for use in each sense:

 

View

The visual resource is the most used in marketing strategies. In this sense, two areas need special attention:

 

- Visual identity: Logo, symbols and colors make all the difference in brand recognition. Remember that colors have meaning and stimulate specific feelings and reactions for those who see them!

 

- Physical store environment: The physical stores environment needs to be nice! Take care from the lighting to the decor and colors that will be used locally. This makes all the difference on the impression and the stimulus that will cause on the customer, depending on your goal!

 

Hearing

It is an accepted fact that sound makes a total difference in our mood. Why not use this influence for the moment of your client's purchases? The idea, in this sense, is that the sound helps in inducing a certain emotion or attitude.

 

If you need people to be agile in shopping, for example, the ideal is to put a song at a faster rate. However beware. Perhaps for your customer, a quiet and smooth song is more than enough to ensure a pleasant experience during the buying process. he will probably like to go through it again.

 

Smell

Smells have a powerful influence awakening feelings and even memories in your costumers.

 

To help in this process, the tip is to develop an essence or even use an existing one, which can refer the customer to your products or shopping experience. It is legal to use scents in your stores to ensure that odors outside the store do not disturb or damage your business environment. Invest also in the climatización of the place.

 

Touch

Some researchs shows that when we touch the object we want, the possibility of buying is much greater. The strategy for this sense is linked to the experience that the consumer will have in the physical store.

 

Climate control on the store makes the customer more comfortable. Take care of selecting the best textures for some objects such as armchairs, dresser curtains, counters and even the floor! Finally, of course, remember to leave the product in easy reach so that customers can touch it.

 

Palate or taste

This is the most specific sense. Not all brands will be able to use it. But if you work with food, it should be very exploited.

 

The tip is to always have proof of some food for the customers, which will give more credibility to the realization of the purchase.

 

But even if your company is not from the food business, it's worth giving some kind of snack to the customers. This let them more comfortable in the environment and can give good results!

 

You see? These strategies are very easy to put into practice and can bring great results! Test and try out what works best for your brand!

Facebook Marketplace

Facebook Marketplace was introduced in 2016 as a place for people to buy and sell within their communities. Think Craigslist, but with Messenger.   But plans to incorporate more brands into the platform mean that big changes are underway. In June 2018, Facebook announced the option for businesses to place ads in Marketplace. And soon Facebook will add more B2C options to the C2C platform.   In other words, think Amazon with a hyper-targeting algorithm.   So, how does Facebook Marketplace work exactly? And what can businesses do to prepare? Read on to learn which features are currently available and how to plan for what’s in store.     What is Facebook Marketplace? Facebook Marketplace is an online shopping channel. It’s a place for Facebook users to buy and sell from each other locally.   As of May 2018, Marketplace is used in more than 70 different countries by more than 800 million people each month.   You can access Facebook Marketplace in the Facebook app and on desktop: On mobile, click the white storefront symbol at the bottom of the app on iOS and at the top of the app on Android. On a desktop web browser, click the red and white storefront symbol in the left margin.   Listings in Facebook Marketplace are organized by categories like Entertainment, Vehicles, Housing, and Hobbies. Shoppers can filter searches by price and location, and save listings for future reference.   Each listing can contain up to 10 photos along with a description of the product. Interested customers can message sellers directly on Messenger to ask questions.   Facebook Marketplace ads Ads in Facebook Marketplace appear in-feed when someone browses.   These placements have the advantage of reaching people where they are shopping. Advertisers have seen a marked increase in conversion rates compared with News Feed placements.   Facebook Marketplace Shop listings For now, only companies in the US can apply to list and sell products in Facebook Marketplace. Auto dealerships in certain locations are also allowed to list vehicles through inventory partners.   Brand listings currently appear in two areas on Marketplace: in the Shop category and in the Daily Deals category. (As of January 2019, this content is only visible to US users.) Only hand-selected businesses that offer brand-name products at discounted rates are eligible for the deals program.   Facebook doesn’t charge list fees or take a cut of commissions. So for brands approved to list products, Marketplace is essentially a free, organic distribution channel. But Marketplace listings require a Facebook Checkout integration, which charges a $.30 and 2.9 percent fee for every transaction.     When you plan your next online retail and social media marketing strategy, make sure that your Marketplace efforts align with your overall goals.  

5 Automated Marketing Rules You Must Follow

If you work with marketing you should know how difficult it is to keep up with customers today. They do in-depth research before any purchase and expect brands to be relevant and help them at all stages of the consumer process.   This sounds like a lot, but the same technological advances that have given all this power to increasingly demanding customers can also help your brand.   Machine learning is a tool that helps your work meet people's expectations. It serves to create automated marketing campaigns on a large scale, delivering the right message to the right consumer, in the right place and at the right time, pleasing people to the right extent and delivering the results expected by advertisers.   According to data from hundreds of brands using machine learning to improve their marketing strategies, the best results are obtained by those who follow five fundamental rules to succeed in this era of automated marketing.     1. Optimize for growth, not for efficiency Machine learning only works for what we do optimize. If some brands are obsessed with efficiency, or by measuring each die separately, the best performers seek profitable growth and have a holistic view of marketing.   One example is HomeAway. When it focused on long-term profit rather than short-term ROI, the company was able to grow dramatically and even increased revenue for 2017 by 115% over the previous year.   Another case is online financial services companies like Betterment. Instead of focusing only on search or just video, the company put the two to work together. He followed the signs of intent from those who searched for keywords linked to the financial system on Google to engage those same people on YouTube. As such, the brand significantly improved its campaign on the video platform, and also increased brand searches by 245% on Google.   2. Conquer the best customers You may have heard the general rule that 20% of customers generate 80% of profits. But most advertisers win new customers as if they are all the same. Instead of investing in people less likely to deliver results, the best professionals use machine learning to focus on the most valuable customers in the long run - that is, they are automatically reaching people with higher customer lifetime values.   There are recent data from tourism companies that have found that the best customers are not always the ones who book the more expensive trips, but those who travel more often. That is why the industry focused on these high-value customers, rather than giving importance to short-term ROI.   Using machine learning, brands profit more from customers with whom they are more likely to do more business and over time.   3. Earn more with the customers you already have The best professionals focus on increasing the CLV of current customers. By gaining more over time with each customer, brands can invest in winning more people. Better than that: they earn even more customers than the competition.   The best professionals increase CLV using machine learning to improve cross-selling and reduce losses. For cross-selling, the brands map out what the customer is thinking about buying and anticipate by announcing just that product. To reduce losses, brands identify high-value customers who are at risk of not buying, and make unique offers to increase retention.   After launching its first cross-selling and loss-reduction campaign, Allstate insurer increased retention 2.4 times, and found that cross-selling was 4 times more efficient than repurchasing customers.   4. Enhance your creative In a world where digital marketing is increasingly automated, the power of your brand, the personalization of your ads and the emotional connection you create with people, make all the difference.   In search campaigns, machine learning can create hundreds of tailored ads for a single keyword, using a tool called a responsive search ad. It creates unique pieces from some titles and descriptions, automatically impacting the right person the right way.   On YouTube, some advertisers use machine learning to customize content on a large scale. Frito-Lay has identified YouTube's most popular content categories for every audience since the 1990s. They've used the Youtube Director Mix tool to create a variety of pieces for each of these major categories.   In the end, they configured the campaign so that the right piece hit the right person at the right time. Anyone who decides to watch a clip, for example, can be impacted by a piece that has to do with music.   5. Invest in the best mobile experiences No matter the beauty or efficiency of your ad. If the mobile experience you offer is bad, your customers will not convert. And the best professionals understand the value of quick, non-scared experiences.   With automated marketing, bidding algorithms with machine learning automatically direct customers to sites that convert better. So sites that do not do so well on the mobile are behind.   We see brands adopting new technologies such as Progressive Web Apps or Accelerated Mobile Pages to increase the speed and experience of their mobile sites. For example, Alibaba, which already has a fabulous conversion rate, launched a Progressive Web App and saw its conversions increase by 76%. Yeah...   Article Moral Top professionals are usually better than others in all five of these rules. Have you thought about competing with a marketeer who focuses on maximizing profits instead of efficiency, which focuses on acquiring the best customers, who makes more money for each customer acquired, whose website converts better and has better and more attractive content? In the web market where everyone chases their place in the sun, what hypotheses will you have against top professionals?
