Many people believe that fax advertising may seem like an outdated form of advertising. Many people turn to other media for new entertainment and information about what to buy and what to buy from fax advertising may not be effective. It is for this reason that fax ads must be made more distinctive to the average consumer when walking through the fax machine.
When creating a fax ad, it is always important to keep the customer in mind. Think about the things they want to see, such as pictures and words that will catch their attention and move from the page they describe. Make sure they are able to get attention, and at least read the ad is half the battle.
The next step in this strategy is to make sure that the fax ad carries something that keeps them from reading. Incentives are the golden rule of fax advertising. Without something that would keep the customer reading, they would probably pull the ad out of the drawer, complain that it was a waste of paper or ink or both, and then drop it into a ball and throw it in the trash. Everybody likes to have a deal, be it a discount coupon or a new low rate that the customer wants to see something offered to use that valuable ink and paper.
The last most important note about fax ads is to make sure they know how to contact you. Whether it's over the phone, fax or website. They have to contact you to take advantage of that big deal you offer them. It would be a complete farce if they wanted to take the incentive provided by the fax announcement and had no way to contact your company. This will be money in the pipe or just without any suspense to another competing company which has left its contact information.
Fax ads should not be a relic of prehistoric times. There is still life in these fax machines and a great opportunity to spread the greatness of your company. It can be used to make the most of your business by keeping customers on standby.
