The home and housewares industry knows all about trends, changing styles and evolving technology. As much as those concepts apply to products and brands, they hold just as true for marketing practices. For brands to remain competitive and compelling, they not only need to keep their products and technology imaginative and functional, they also have to market those products effectively. With so much innovation in the housewares industry, it can be hard to set your brand apart from the rest. Marketing professionals understand that to be able to differentiate and promote their brands, they have to be creative and innovative. This, along with a shift in consumer behavior has sparked a change in the marketing field.
A recent survey by Adobe stated that 76% of marketers think that the marketing industry has changed more in the past two years than the past 50 years. This is incredibly apparent in the home and housewares industry. From Press Events and Marketing Kits, the IHA is committed to helping its members successfully promote their brands at the Show and beyond. These resources are extremely beneficial and are valuable assets provided by the Association. In addition to these marketing tools, the IHA is also committed to helping Housewares brands succeed online because they understand the impact and opportunities Digital Marketing presents.
The Internet is used by both consumers and retailers for a variety of reasons. From comparing prices and getting reviews and feedback on products to watching trends and making industry connections, Digital Marketing has impacted the Housewares industry in new and exciting ways. Search Engine Optimization, Digital Advertising and Social Media Marketing offer brands of all sizes new ways to not only advertise to their target audiences, but also to build relationships and grow their brands online. According to the previously mentioned Adobe study, 60% of marketers expect their companies to invest more in Digital Marketing technologies this year. Is your brand keeping up?
