Print Marketing: Dead or Alive?

Revive your marketing plan through printed materials alongside your digital efforts to benefit your business.

In today’s digital age, where online advertising and social media dominate the marketing industry, it may seem counterintuitive to turn to traditional printed materials for your marketing efforts.

However, the power of print should not be underestimated.

Incorporating well-designed and targeted printed materials into your marketing strategy can provide a unique and effective way to engage with your audience and elevate your overall marketing efforts.

In fact, 82% of consumers trust print advertising the most when it comes to making a purchase decision according to Harvard Business Review “Why Marketers Are Returning to Traditional Advertising”.

In this article, we will explore how reviving your marketing plan through printed materials can yield substantial benefits for your business.

With almost everything being digital, it is easy to become “numb” or overlook digital advertisements. Printed materials, physically existing, provide the touch, feeling, and display that a digital asset cannot. Whether it’s a brochure, flyer, or business card, printed materials create a lasting impression and have the potential to leave a more significant impact on recipients by influencing their purchase decisions. Lucky for you, Mudflower Creative specializes in the production of custom-printed solutions. Call us old-fashioned but nothing beats a high-quality business card to build your brand.

Printed materials provide an excellent opportunity to reinforce your brand identity and establish credibility. By incorporating consistent branding elements such as logos, colors, and typography, you can create a cohesive visual experience across all marketing channels. High-quality printed materials also convey professionalism and attention to detail, signaling to your target audience that you take your business seriously. Anyone can create a social media account and mark it as a “business” but investing in professional services to put your brand down on paper legitimizes it for you, and the consumer.

With all that being said, don’t throw your digital marketing strategy completely out the window.

Print advertising should not be seen as a replacement for digital marketing but rather to complement one another. Integrating print with digital outlets will create a powerful multi-channel marketing approach that maximizes impact. Mudflower specializes in packaging marketing services into one while keeping the cost low but the ROI high.

If you read this and are ready to amplify your brand by combining the efforts of both digital and print but don’t know where to start, don’t sweat it – we have you covered. Mudflower will leverage the unique benefits of printed materials alongside your existing digital strategies. Don’t have a digital strategy? We can do that, too!
