Healthy customer relationships are strengthened and expanded through targeted marketing campaigns. With that in mind, it's important to leverage marketing as a path toward better customer engagement in your physical therapy equipment and supplies wholesale and manufacturers business's planning process.
Viral marketing is one of the most elusive marketing techniques in a small business owner's arsenal. Viral marketing takes guts and if it is incorporated in the marketing strategy of a physical therapy equipment and supplies wholesale and manufacturers business, there are no guarantees your efforts will be rewarded. Although you have little control over whether or not your products go viral, there are things you can do to nurture your brand's viral capacity. Social media and other online vehicles can seed a viral marketing campaign, but you'll need to nurture their development through direct customer interaction as well as other techniques.
Public Relations Strategies
Public relations is more subtle, but no less powerful than a full-blown marketing push. If you want to send unrestricted marketing messages to your audience, buy a mailing list and perform a direct mail campaign. But if your strategy calls for sophistication, media buy-in and thought leadership, hire a PR consultant. The art of storytelling is a core PR competency. Storylines need to be believable and objective while communicating your brand's strengths and value proposition.
