Importance of Advertising in the retail market

Advertising is persuasion, and persuasion is not a science, but an art. Advertising is the art of persuasion! It is nothing but making people aware of your product or service and influencing their actions to your advantage. Advertising is not limited to one form or one particular media but it inculcates all the media’s together namely Print, Television, Radio, Outdoor, Transit, Broadcast, Guerilla and lots more! Out of which, some of them can be very effectively utilized in the retail sector. The retail market includes all the shops that sell goods to the ultimate customer, who in turn purchases them for their personal use. It encompasses all kinds of shops, from kiosks and small groceries to supermarket chains and large department stores.

The retail sector provides a clear platform for the brands to advertise their products, highlight the USP’s and influence a consumer into buying it.

  • Giving the final push – A consumer may change their mindset at any given point due to presence of a multitude of brands but when the consumer looks at the advertisement of the product in the form of a kiosk or a stand inside of a retail store, it acts as a final push which leads to the purchase of the product.
  • Promotions and events – The consumer get attracted to the various promotions and discounts being advertised about in the retail stores, which may be in the form of announcements, posters or via lucky draws and coupons.
  • Gets the brand close to the people – When people are in the store, and they experience the first-hand advertisement of a product and at the same time they can feel the product physically, this entire experience builds a connection between the brand and the people.

It not only engages the consumers but also helps build a long-term relationship.

While advertising in the retail market, advertisers need to embrace the local culture, know the local people and create adverts that connect to them on a personal level. This can act as a bonus while advertising in the retail market. This market acts as the common ground of connection between the brand and the people.
