Try as you may, no marketer can know everything about marketing at all times. It is impossible. Things move and change quickly, and the marketing landscape waits for no one.

Relax! media update's Alrika Möller found some underrated marketing strategies that can still spice things up!

1. Nudge marketing

This strategy is all about being subtle. Marketers use subtle ways of suggesting to influence consumer behaviour rather than obvious persuasion and traditional marketing methods.

2. Experiental marketing

Experiental marketing is about creating a customer experience rather than just marketing. It revolves around engaging with your audience and making them feel special.

3. Storyscaping

The use of storytelling is the oldest trick in the book. Storyscaping is the act of making your customer the hero and the focus of the story. It allows customers to feel connected to your brand.

4. Gamification

Gamification takes themes and elements from gaming as a way to market to new customers. It calls the audience to action to get some kind of reward.

5. Retention marketing

Retention marketing is all about building customer loyalty. The focus is on keeping customers by nurturing the relationships that already exist. They do this through loyalty programmes and personalised emails.
