Running List of Marketing Tools

Brainstorming a Marketing or Advertising Strategy Online or Offline?

This Google Sheet running list of marketing tools is meant to serve as a tool to be used while you are developing a strategy for marketing your product or service, whether it’s online, offline, outdoor, on TV, on radio – anything and everything. It is in no way a complete list, nor is it weighted in any way…it is simply a list of tools you might consider when putting your plan together.

This list covers some things we are specialists at, like SEO, Pay-Per-Click advertising, and much more. It also covers traditional offline media like TV, radio and print – all of which can play a pivotal role in introducing a new business or product to the marketplace. In some cases, there are twists on these legacy mediums – for instance, in addition to buying local radio, you can place ad campaigns directly with Internet radio providers like Spotify and Pandora.

We also include OOH (Out Of Home) advertising – a long standing medium that can now be executed in a completely new way, thanks to emerging technology companies like Adomni.

Brainstorm creative and marketing tactics with this list of marketing tools

A neat way to use this spreadsheet is to open it up when you have a product or service you need to promote – then, read through the list line-by-line and see how you might use each tool or medium to create and/or distribute your message. It’s fun to see what bubbles up as you explore the choices!
