See below for tips on creating a marketing plan that produces results.


An effective marketing plan is like a good diet. If you balance your options correctly, pay attention to portions, and target your specific needs, results are guaranteed. Eat only cookies, or sticking to our metaphor here–use only one kind of marketing–and your plan is doomed to fail. Here are a few characteristics of a healthy business marketing “diet”:

1. Effective marketing is CONSISTENT.

Did you know the average person is exposed to 5,000 ads per day!? Don’t let your message get lost in this shuffle. How? Build brand awareness with consistent, regular campaigns and make sure customers know what you have to offer. And keep it fresh! Running the same advertisement two or three times to cement your message is great, any longer and your message loses its power.

2. Effective marketing is COHESIVE.

Marketing works best when it’s recognizable! Think of big brands like McDonalds or Coca-Cola. You know their products, ads and signage instantly thanks to cohesive branding. Be sure to use logos, colors and fonts consistently in your marketing for the best effect.

Is your business branding nonexistent? We’d love to help you!

3. Effective marketing is CUSTOMER-ORIENTED.

Your recurring customers are most often your friends, neighbors and community members! Make sure you’re reaching them at home with a medium they trust, which just happens to be print. More than 80% of people trusted print ads when making a purchasing decision, double the 39% rate of social media ads.

4. Effective marketing is COMPREHENSIVE.

A good marketing plan hits all mediums! The more channels you use for your advertising, the more potential customers you can reach. So hit them all, just like food groups, for maximum effectiveness.

5. BONUS! Don’t forget DESIGN.

Good design will ultimately make or break your marketing plan. That’s why we include free professional graphic design with every Herald Times advertisement. Quotes are available by email or phone, or 970-878-4017. We also offer a variety of other design and print products including flyers, postcards, business cards and more, as well as branding and logos.
