The Rule of 7

The Rule of 7
A very important rule in marketing and advertising that is utilized more often than you may realize is the rule of 7. The main point of this rule is repetition. The rule states:

“A prospective buyer should hear or see the marketing message at least seven times before they buy it from you.”

The two most important words in that sentence you should be paying attention to are “at” and “least”, specifically in that order. Please take a moment to remember the Farmers insurance commercials. Now, please hum the jingle from the end of those commercials. The reason you are able to do this so easily, besides it being catchy, is because you’ve heard it multiple times. Now imagine having that power for your marketing campaign.

Offer Them Something Tangible

Send your customers direct mailers with compelling offers frequently so they have a reason to hold on to it. Direct mailers with coupons, gift cards, or interactive elements can win prospects and keep existing customers coming back again and again. Great pieces can end up on your customer’s fridge which serves as a constant reminder of your product or service.

Have a Strong Online Presence

Having an online presence doesn’t just mean utilizing social media platforms. It also means using online retargeting banners effectively. The main focus of this rule is repetition, so, having a strongly designed set ads that provide online reminders is key to a truly effective multi-channel marketing strategy. In addition to giving your campaign a boost when banners are clicked, the ads also serve to build your brand awareness by serving more impressions to your targeted audience.
