What is Multi-Channel Marketing?

Multi-channel marketing basically means employing a single digital marketing strategy across multiple platforms where your audience is at. Every customer is unique in the way they explore or interact with businesses, yours included. Multi-Channel marketing gives them a choice to use a platform that they are most comfortable with to experience your business or brand.

Having so many channels means your potential customers are spread out over a wide range of mediums. Your advertisements need to be in front of as many of them wherever they are.

Multi-Channel marketing also helps you to diversify the risks of your digital strategy- I mean, why would you put your eggs all in one basket?

Benefits of Multi-Channel Marketing

Synergistic Growth

Multi-channel marketing brings about synergistic growth even in other platforms. It results in greater brand recognition and more touch points with your customer for them to make the purchase.

Example, a viral video on Youtube can result in more google searches, which in return bumps up the relevancy of your Google advertisements.

Spot opportunities

Multi-channel marketing also allows you to spot opportunities on different platforms, giving you a birds-eye view of your digital marketing strategy. Different platforms have different advantages over each other in terms of audience engagement, platform capabilities, and even the experience that the platform gives.

 

The complexities of Multi-Channel Marketing

With more platforms,  There are more requirements in individual expertise in each channel on top of your Multi-Channel marketing strategy.
