Welcome to Luxury Daily’s inaugural Classic Guide to Luxury Marketing, designed to be an indispensable resource to marketers and brands interested in the ins and outs of luxury marketing.
This edition is chock full of ideas on how luxury brands can execute campaigns across all mediums, including the Internet, mobile, print, television, outdoor, direct mail, in-store and radio.
The Classic Guide is meant to help luxury marketers understand how to navigate 21st-century marketing, with all its complexities and privacy issues as well as database-building and branding opportunities.
Print has long been the mainstay of luxury marketing, dependable for its association with pertinent content and the gloss factor that showcases luxury brands to their best advantage.
But there is a perceptible shift in luxury marketing.
Newer tools in marketing such as social media and mobile marketing are giving luxury brands the option to not only talk to their audience but also hear back from them in real-time.
Indeed, social media is single-handedly changing the face of luxury marketing. So is the rapid adoption of ecommerce and mobile commerce, requiring marketers to have a 360-degree strategy for marketing to discerning consumers.
That said, nothing beats the in-store experience to appreciate the real value of luxury products and services. Indeed, smart marketing is the best traffic driver.
