BYD marketing communication mix consists of various channels to communicate the marketing message to the target customer segment. These channels are print and media advertising, sales promotions, events and experiences, public relations and direct marketing.

BYD Print and Media Advertising

Print and media advertising includes various traditional forms of paid communication used to promote a product, service, or brand through printed or broadcasted media channels. While BYD primarily focuses on digital marketing due to its reach and engagement potential, it still strategically utilizes print and media advertising for several reasons such as:

  • Reaching specific audiences. Print and media offer access to demographics less active on digital platforms, like older generations or local communities.
  • Building brand awareness. High-profile magazine spreads or television commercials can significantly increase brand recognition and visibility.
  • Complementary storytelling. Print and media formats allow for longer narratives and deeper dives into BYD’s values, technology, and environmental commitment, complementing the quick bites of digital marketing.
