By generating wide awareness we can generate buzz and ensure that messages filter down to the ideal target market of creative industries. There are over 7500 registered businesses in Bendigo, most of these being small and micro businesses. Within this market, creative industries are a small niche that has not had a unifying force like BCIH promises to be.
The interior design and branding of BCIH will directly influence the uptake of tenancy. We are targeting the creative industries niche, which is made up of creative and artistic people. Individuals will need to be inspired and excited by the ‘vibe’ of the space in order for them to see the value in investing in a membership.
Awareness and appeal is worthless if it is not backed up with strong conversion activity. Individuals do not make major decisions in a single go; the ultimate success of securing tenancies is reliant on engaging and converting interested parties through multiple touch points over time.
