    How to Combine Online and Offline Marketing for Maximum Impact

    Many businesses have both an online and an offline presence. Offline businesses that were smart enough to establish an online presence clearly grabbed an edge over those that were not.

    In this age of digital marketing, if you’re running a business, no matter what  size, you’ll have a better chance of succeeding when you establish a presence online as well as offline.

    That being said, many business that have both an online and offline presence operate them as separate campaigns. This is actually a waste of time and online and offline resources.

    If you can make your online and offline marketing campaigns work together, you can give your business a much-needed boost and increase your offline and online customers and your revenue. For one thing, online and offline customers will sense and appreciate the consistencies between your online and offline campaigns.

    So how do you go about creating a seamless collaboration between your online and offline marketing efforts? Here are some tips.

    Be consistent with your marketing messages

    Most businesses have a primary marketing message or a slogan.

    Make sure that that main digital marketing message and/or slogan appears consistently and prominently in your combine online and offline campaigns.

    Consistency is especially important if you’re looking to scale your content production and content publishing speed.

    If people can see your marketing slogan and message on your brick-and-mortar façade, position them just as boldly in your website’s header, where customers will see them right away.

    Create a universal appearance

    The way your business looks and feels should be uniform across all your campaigns. The color schemes, fonts, and logos you use for your offline business should also be apparent in your Internet store.

    This will make it a lot easier for your customers to recognize your business, no matter where they encounter it — on the street or on the Web.

    Make your web address a mainstay in all your marketing efforts

    Believe it or not, this is often overlooked. By including your website address on your combine offline and online marketing materials, you give leads plenty of opportunities to learn about and visit your online business.

    The majority of companies have some sort of web presence these days, whether it’s their own website./online channels or a Facebook page. Whichever it is, your web address should be apparent every time you market your business online and offline. This enables potential customers to find you a whole lot easier and that will inevitably raise web traffic and revenue.

    Target the same set of customers

    It’s much easier to run a business when it has a specific market. Niche marketing allows you to focus your efforts much more effectively and successfully. If your offline business caters to a specific set of customers, then you should target that same set of customers online.

    You can do this easily by running online ads using AdWords, making use of targeted social media platforms advertising (by age, gender, location, etc.), or by properly applying local SEO techniques that home in on the right customers.

    Targeting keywords for offline campaigns

    It’s not just slogans and marketing messages that should be used consistently across all your marketing campaigns. Even in your offline marketing efforts, you should also use the keywords that you are optimizing for your online activities.

    The beauty of doing so is that when your keywords play a prominent role in your offline campaign’s, people won’t experience any difficulty finding you online.

    Use your business’s name in your site’s URL

    This isn’t only for SEO purposes. This also promotes strong brand recall. Some companies commit the mistake of using a URL that’s entirely different from their business’s name in the hope of achieving a higher ranking in search.

    By using your firm’s name in your URL, you ensure consistency, and it makes it a lot easier for your customers to find you online by just typing your company name in their browser.


    Making your online and offline marketing campaigns work together will create a stronger brand that customers will recognize easily, whether they come across it online or offline. This effectively leads to stronger customer loyalty and increased traffic and revenue in both your bricks-and-mortar and virtual stores.
