So what is the marketing mix?

You’ve probably heard of it.

Marketing is not doing just one thing.

They say you need to have “touched” someone 7 times before they are likely to “buy” from you.

So how does that work?

 

Think about how you purchase things – whether it be food, what restaurant you want to go to, what cinema you choose – it’s about the know, like and trust.

 

So how do brands build that know, like and trust?

From consistency

Appearing in your life in lots of different ways, whether that be ads on the tele, packaging on the supermarket shelves, billboards, radio, newspaper, social media, targeted marketing – the list is endless

 

So it’s the same for Popdance.

We can’t expect to post in one social media group and expect our classes, parties and events to be flooded!

It just doesn’t work that way.

“Hitting” potential customers in many different ways, and being consistent, on brand and with a key, caring and professional message is what’s working!
