Content – Design, Styles, Marketing – 3

The content you employ can be everything from a straight, upfront ad through to something more thoughtful. That’big bang’ direct statement of what you are selling, whether it comes with glitter, balloons, rainbows and dancing dogs or not, it has its place. At some point we all need to make a direct statement of what we are offering.

You can also offer up something a little more thoughtful and imaginative, giving a background feel, setting a scene, being emotive and thus creating appeal and engagement. In both scenarios you need to have done your initial work typifying who it is that are your targets, who is it you are going to sell to, who will take an interest?

Resources, design, styles

If you want to reach your target audience it is useful to have not only the right message being put out there – you need to present it in a very particular way. Perhaps you could style it in a way that is familiar to those people or businesses. But then again, perhaps you could do something that will catch their eye, use a style that they will certainly notice. It may be something not quite so comfortable for them but gives them pause for thought. To do any of this you will need the right resources to deal with the work yourself or someone to do it for you (and yes you can talk to us about this – check out our site on wix – f4mmedia, we can and will help pretty much no matter who you are or where you are).
