Primark – STANCE ON ADVERTISEMENT
Primark is not known to be an advertising company, and it has taken a toll on them, as other competing companies have invested huge capitals in advertisements and are raking up the rewards.
Primark does advertise but doesn’t make it a priority. They depend on the quality of their products to speak for itself, and its working pretty fine, but for now only. In the future, marketing of your brand properly is going to depend largely on how you are able to reach your customers and get them close to you. And one of the few tested and trusted ways to do this is through the use of advertising platforms, which spans from social media to television adverts, print media adverts etc.
It is known that Primark is having a tough time with customers because of their high prices. That is one of their major disadvantages. They face this challenge because they still just focus all their attention on producing high-quality products using high-quality materials.
But having to produce best quality products is not the ultimate goal of a brand. These products have to get to the consumers, and it could be done by
- Introducing creative advertisements
- Reducing prices of products, to meet the ability of potential consumers.
- Broaden their horizon, and sell a wider range of products.
- Use social media marketing to the fullest
