If you are developing new product lines or you are an inventor, you might be able to take advantage of competitions to boost your marketing potential. Competitions are great ways to start testing and publicising your products, so keep searching for upcoming competitions in a field appropriate for your product. Even if you don’t win the competitions you enter, your product will still get great exposure just through being reviewed and considered. Finding out how your products are received by the judging panels is a great indication of how they may be received by the wider general public or your specific target market, so the feedback is always useful. Competitions can act as independent verifications of the benefits and worth of your products as judges assess and pass comment. When similar products are up against each other in a basic ‘best of’ type of competition, then this really is the way to mark your product out from the rest. Other types of competition may pitch different types of product against each other in competitions for ‘most innovative’ or ‘most creative’. These competitions can be more beneficial for company profiles as a whole rather than for individual products. So when you are looking for new business contacts rather than immediate sales increases for a particular product, these would be the competitions for you. When your product is a specialised invention designed for specific use by a target market, then getting it viewed and assessed by industry experts can be vital. For something new which hasn’t had time to generate widespread user feedback, competitions can bring the sorts of accolades you need to get your target audience feeling confident that yours is a product they can trust. Competitions can involve the completion of a lot of paperwork in the form of entry submissions, and you might not always have the time to do this. With the value that can be derived from taking part and even winning competitions, it is worth weighing up whether it is cost-effective to hire in some temporary marketing resource to help with this work.
