The immediate benefits of advertising are obvious, especially in today’s world where visibility is everything. But for as much as we know about advertising, some of the benefits are not as immediate, and because of this, go ignored.
Advertisements can boost employee morale
The focus of advertising is always customer-centric, as it should be, because bringing in new faces means bringing in new revenue. However, we rarely give much thought to how advertising can affect the employees. Giving employees more responsibility and including their input on big advertising campaigns can go a long way in building their self-confidence. Or maybe adding a sign in a part of town that you know many of your employees live in and travel through everyday can instill a sense of accomplishment, which could be just the boost they need. Your employee now has the opportunity to drive home every day and see something that they can take pride in, which will subsequently lead to them continuing to strive to do their best.
Seeing their work all over town leads to employees taking stock in their representation of not only themselves, but the company as well. While it is important to invest in advertising in order to improve your company’s sales, it is just as important to invest in the human capital in your employ.
Any company that is able to consistently spend money on advertising will have an advantage. Regardless of whether or not an individual is inspired to go out and buy your product right away, the repetition of advertising goes a long way, and customers are certainly taking notice. You see a ton of different ads every day, and in some cases you will be compelled to go to that business right away. In other instances, you mentally file the name of a business just in case you ever find yourself in a position that required that particular service.
If a company is able to continually keep themselves in the stream of people’s consciousness, there will always be an open chance to gain new customers. On the flip side of this, though, if you all of sudden cut back or remove your advertising, that recall that might have been right on the cusp quickly wanes. Or someone who has been keeping your company in the back of their minds doesn’t see your commercials anymore, and believes that your business has closed down and never comes by.
The power of word of mouth
Even in instances in which someone might not be able to see your advertising for themselves, there is the potential for them to hear about it from someone whose opinion they value. If your advertising is so profound and memorable that it encourages people to speak to others about it, they might seek out your services without ever personally having contact with or knowledge of your business. This secondhand advertising is very important, and should not be overlooked.
