[Company Name] expects its target market to be residents living within a 5-mile radius of the location. The Company’s promotions strategy to reach the audience includes:
Before opening the tattoo shop, [Company Name] will organize pre-opening events designed for prospective customers, local merchants and press contacts. These events will create buzz, and awareness for [Company Name] in the area.
Advertisements in print publications like newspapers, magazines, etc., are an excellent way for businesses to connect with their audience. The Company will advertise its products in popular magazines and news dailies. Obtaining relevant placements in industry magazines and journals will also help in increasing brand visibility.
[Company Name] will hire an experienced PR agency/professional(s) to formulate a compelling PR campaign to boost its brand visibility among the target audience.

It will run regular advertisements to maintain exposure to relevant markets. Community newspapers, college publications, fashion programs, and similar channels will be a major promotion effort.
Social Media Marketing
Social media is one of the most cost-effective and practical marketing methods for improving brand visibility. The Company will use social media to develop engaging content in terms of different tattoo designs and customer reviews that will increase audience awareness and loyalty. Engaging with prospective clients and business partners on social media platforms like Facebook, Instagram, Twitter and LinkedIn will also help understand changing customer needs.
Word of Mouth Marketing
[Company name] will encourage word-of-mouth marketing from loyal and satisfied clients. The Company will use recommendations and word-of-mouth marketing to grow the customer base through the network of its existing customers. The Company will be incentivizing its existing customer base to encourage their friends to come and try their service for the first time.
Offers and incentives are an excellent approach to assisting businesses in replenishing the churn in their customer base that they lose each year. The Company will introduce special offers to attract new consumers and encourage repeat purchases, which will be quite advantageous in the long run.
Pricing strategy is one of the most important functions that any business can plan for attracting customers. Prices are a foundational element of a company’s revenues—if managed carefully, they can generate high profits.
[Company Name]’s pricing will be moderate, so customers feel they receive great value when availing of the tattoo service. The customer can expect to receive quality tattoo services for a more affordable price than what they pay at an ultra-premium tattoo shop.
