Marketing strategies that last
Building a marketing strategy that considers your long term goals and is flexible enough to adjust to industry trends can feel like an overwhelming task.
That’s why Josh Garelleck, founder of Arctic Leaf, encourages brands to consider the current economic climate, their long term goals, and to hone in on their brand identity
1. Look for key indicators in the market
Use Prime Days as a leading indicator for the upcoming holiday season.
Unquestionably, there has been a dip in the ecommerce market recently. Rather than fearing this dip, Josh encourages brands to consider it as a correction in the market after the surge during the Covid isolation era, when more consumers moved online. As the world opens up again and consumers move back to brick and mortar stores, there is still great opportunity for ecommerce brands. Prime Days is a good example of how seasonal surges will play out over the next few months. This year’s prime day was so successful that Amazon is planning a second fall event.
2. Hone in on the marketing strategies that work for you
You need to be the expert on your market, your product, and your customers.
Some of Josh’s tips for brands to build a strong brand identity that withstands economic trends:
- Invest in smart marketing strategies to stabilize during shifts in the market
- Know your brand and sell to the right audience
- Be transparent. Everyone knows we’re in a recession so respect your customers enough not to sugarcoat it. Justify your prices to them and prove that your product is worth the price tag.
- Use customer stories & lifestyle photography
- Keep retention at the forefront of all of your strategies.

3. User Generated Content (UGC) is your key to
Customers want to see various types of content on a regular cadence. Many businesses, particularly smaller brands, hit a content bottleneck where they don’t necessarily have the time and resources to be creating content for marketing.
That’s where User Generated Content comes in. Photos and videos produced by your customers can be repurposed into website, social, ad, and product listing content. The best part of this strategy is that consumers trust user generated content more than brand-created content.
Stamped allows you to collect photo and video reviews which you can repurpose into social media content, ads, and website content.
