Create a Deadline:

  • Clearing out stock for a new shipment.

 
Whatever action is we target on our audience to take as the result of our marketing, needs to have a deadline. If running a sale, we should be clear that there is a end date& time of the advertising in the campaign mentioned.
 
If for example, running a social media giveaway to generate new leads. Keep reminding the audience What is the deadline and when to enter and win.
 
Creating a real deadline (even if it’s arbitrary) helps initiate urgency in your audience to act now. Even if they’re interested in what you have to offer, they might not act unless you tell them the offer won’t be around forever. Stick to your deadline even if you don’t want to. You can always down sell to the people who missed out later on or repeat your marketing campaign in the future.
 

Innovate Suspense:

 
In general, in order to capture the attention of the target audience to your business, one way is to build suspense.
A great example of effective suspense marketing is Pinterest’s original strategy. When the site first launched, it was actually invitation-only. You had to register and wait several weeks to get an invitation to BETA test the site. That’s pretty novel for a social networking site. People started talking about the secrecy online. When the site finally did open up to the public, sites and news outlets like Huffington Post, Gizmodo, BBC News, TechCrunch and CNET gave them tons of coverage. Discussing the product well before launch and using peeks in your marketing can create the pre-launch suspense you need to build extra buzz. One can create a countdown to your product launch and share it on social media to keep your audience thinking about your brand.
