What Makes a Good Promotional Campaign? 4 Characteristics of a Successful Ad

Updated: Dec 5, 2023

Congratulations! You’ve successfully launched your new product and/or service.

Now the question is: How do you let your audience know about it? How do you make sure that it gets the maximum amount of visibility?

The answer? An effective promotional campaign.

What Makes a Good Promotional Campaign?

Any business worth its salt knows that the key to generating sales is through good marketing.

But, what exactly makes a promotional campaign effective? Here are 4 characteristics that make for a strong promotional campaign.

A Good Promotional Campaign

1. It’s targeted.

In the past, advertising relied on mass media to reach as wide an audience as possible. These pertain to the use of radio and television. While some businesses are still doing this, effective marketing in today’s society requires highly segmented and targeted audiences.

Women, men, children, teens, older adults. Every business has an ideal customer profile they’re trying to attract. The more focused your campaign is on a particular audience, the more effective it can be. The content of your promotional campaign messages must appeal to the needs and feelings of your specific audience.

2. It’s unique.

Consumers are exposed to hundreds of ads in a day. To stand out in today’s highly saturated market, you need to create a unique promotional campaign. How? You can use unexpected resources and formats. For instance, grab your target audience’s attention by emphasizing what makes your service or product truly unique. Offer great deals, discounts, or do something completely out of the box. The possibilities are endless!

As a virtual assistant for online coaches, business coaches, and fitness coaches, among others, 8point8 can help you create unique promotional campaigns that will help you stand out from your competition.

3. It’s creative.

Memorable catchphrases, mind-blowing images, unforgettable blogs, videos that tell stories… Effective promotional campaigns use creativity to stand out and make a brand memorable. The most creative ads manage to surprise audiences, move them to action, and are unforgettable.

Don’t have a creative bone in your body? If the how’s of video making, content writing, or image editing escape you, don’t worry! Our virtual assistant team can make creative promotional campaigns that bring your vision to life.

4. It’s persuasive.

To achieve your goals (i.e. to increase the sales of a particular service/product), your promotional campaign must be persuasive. It must convince consumers that what you’re offering is better than the rest. Persuasive promotional campaigns should be able to move your target audience into action.

The Bottom Line

Does your promotional campaign have what it takes to succeed? If you’ve fallen short on one or more of the points above – or if you haven’t started your own promotional campaign – don’t worry!

As your virtual assistant, we can help you develop and launch a promotional campaign that will help your brand shine.

Working alone in your business?

The business that you were so passionate about when you first started...but lately, you've been feeling like it's swallowing you whole.

Because, if you didn't turn the wheels in your business, who will?

Your free time must be disappearing as you work on email backlogs, unanswered social media DMs, video/podcast editing, client onboarding, and a BAZILLION other tasks you hardly have time for.😢

This is usually what happens when you have no team to back you up.

You probably had a solo virtual assistant in the past, but it didn't work out because you didn't have a task delegation system yet.

Maybe your virtual assistant needed you to train them, but you just didn't have the time and the mood for hand holding. You need someone who can hit the ground running!

Or, it could be that you did find an amazing virtual assistant, but they couldn't take up the huge load of work. It was too much for one person to handle.

So they quit on you, and now you're back to square one. 😭

It's important for you to know that

this is NOT your fault. 🙅

You are just trying to build your business empire. 💰

Because you've had so much business coming in, your task load is also growing at a rate
that you can't keep up with anymore. 🚀

So, how would it feel if you had an instant ROCKSTAR TEAM?

A team you can assign some or ALL of your tasks to? 🙋

A complete crew of virtual assistants that already had a task coordination and team management system in place.

All that's left to do is
and the team will follow your footsteps.

With your business operations delegated to the 8point8 Virtual Assistant Team
you can have MORE TIME to be inspired & creative!

You can finally claim back your time freedom.
