Although email marketing, PPC marketing, Facebook Ads, and many other ad strategies can be very effective for your marketing operation, these are only going to be effective when you’ve narrowed down a target audience.

Mass marketing is a market strategy in which a firm decides to ignore market segment differences and appeal the whole market with one offer or one strategy, which supports the idea of broadcasting a message that will reach the largest number of people possible.

There are a number of techniques for it:

  • The shotgun approach: attempts to reach the audience with advertising on traditional mass media such as television, radio, and the internet, has been widely used and is likely the most familiar technique Advertisements utilizing the shotgun approach present a non-exclusive message that appeals to a broad range of customers.
  • Guerrilla marketing: It is another commonly used tactic in mass market strategies. This strategy aims to produce advertisements that capture the attention of a large market with exciting and memorable messages while engaging consumers in a positive way. By utilizing online distribution methods, this strategy tends to minimize the cost of advertising while offering companies the ability to interact with a large base of viewers. In theory, guerrilla marketing allows a company to leave a stronger impression with consumers by cutting through the noise of a saturated market.

Email Marketing

This is a way to directly communicate to your audience and customers, that too on 1:1 basis. Businesses ask for 3 things from their audiences while signing up / subscription:

  • Name
  • Contact Number
  • Email Address

This is because they know that their audiences may change their contact number millions of times and hence it can be a skip to include in their database. But audience changing their email address is a long painful process. They heavily rely on this data that they receive for further business communications with their audience.
