What is
omni-marketing?

Imagine the following situation:

You want to buy a new pair of shoes so you go online, do a little research until you find the right ones. You pre-order them on the website and later on, you go to the physical store and try them on. They’re a perfect fit!

When you’re about to pay for them, the shop assistant tells you that since you pre-ordered them online, you receive a 10% discount. Hurray! You pay and decide to get your receipt in your email.

You go home incredibly happy with your purchase, log into your email account and, after checking your receipt, you see a link to fill out a customer satisfaction survey. Why wouldn’t you spare 5 minutes to give this company the great feedback they deserve?

They also invite you to download their app and get a new discount next time. Isn’t this company awesome?

 

Omni-channel
marketing

All this experience that you had as a customer is called ‘omnimarketing.’ And you can easily apply this to your coaching business.

Omnimarketing means having interactive points of contact everywhere a (potential) customer goes, both online and offline to find your brand. A brick and mortar store, a desktop/laptop computer, a mobile phone, street billboards, etc., are all different channels everybody uses to shop (either for products or services.) So, omnichannel marketing must aim to target a particular audience through all these channels, giving them an integrative experience.

Your Customer Lifecycle

Each demographic has a different way of interacting with brands. Following the shoes example from above, while a 60-year-old man might still do his research on the newspaper, a 15-year-old girl goes on Facebook and ask for
recommendations. So, you should track your audience’s consumer roadmap and see where it can be more effective to send your message.

It’s important to bear in mind a couple of key things before going all-in with omnimarketing:

Your Audience

You really need to work on researching your audience. Define who your target audience will be. How old are they? What do they do in their free time? What websites do they visit? What are their interests? See how other companies position their brands using marketing.

Even if your product/service is generic, it’s always important for your brand to target a specific audience.

Your Story

Most people nowadays are used to connecting with brands on a deeper level and they want to feel stories are relatable. Create a story that helps people understand why they should choose you over someone else, what action you expect them to take. It doesn’t have to be very long. Depending on your chosen channel, sometimes a simple phrase will do.

Besides, think about your strategy as a whole. How are you going to talk to your audience on social media? And on your blog? Are you creating an email marketing campaign? The message is different according to the goal of every channel.
