One of the most important pieces to effective marketing -- especially for small, local businesses -- is understanding which images and graphics will best go with your content.
While content may be king, people are still visual creatures. We love color, icons, patterns and shapes! Without high-quality visuals, the messaging in your marketing materials will likely fall flat.
Here are some effective ways stellar graphic design can increase your marketing ROI:
When you have a professional graphic designer who knows your company inside and out, they'll be more equipped to make all of your marketing graphics consistent with your brand.
Instead of creating a new color palette and style every time you need a new poster, flyer, or other marketing graphic, you'll have someone who can utilize your branding guidelines to make them all cohesive.
And when your marketing materials are consistent with your brand, you have a better chance of having people recognize it as yours. This allows people who follow your brand already to almost instantaneously identify it with your company, but it helps new followers begin to be more aware of your brand.
Stronger Campaigns and Promotions
If you have a series of events, a specific marketing campaign, or a brand new promotional offer, then you can strengthen their impact by utilizing a professional graphic designer.
Each of these new subsets of your business activities can have their own distinct appearance while still falling under your brand guidelines. Especially for those that occur more than once, like an annual summer sale, potential customers will begin to remember the event and be more likely to talk about it with others they know.
Reaching the Right Audience
When you have a specific target market in mind, such as a working professional or an adventurous couple, you can use the right style(s) of graphic design that will best speak to that audience.
For example, you probably wouldn't use high-tech, modern graphics for an audience of 60+ year old individuals, but you could for a younger, more hip demographic.
Keeping your ideal audience in mind when designing marketing materials is one of the smartest things you can do to increase sales leads.
