Marketing Tips

 

Marketing a Siding Installation Business

You're heavily invested in the success of your siding installation business and failure isn't an option. That means you'll also need to invest yourself in the strategies and techniques it takes to effectively market your brand in the marketplace.

Struggling to find the right combination of marketing strategies and tactics for your siding installation business? You're not alone. More than ever before, the industry is populated with ambitious entrepreneurs eager to make an impression on would-be buyers.

Tenacious messaging and the identification of new delivery channels can be an on ramp to siding installation business profitability.

Media Monitoring

Many marketing techniques are easy to evaluate. Direct mail can be evaluated by tallying the cost of inputs (e.g. a premium mailing list, printing, postage, etc.) and measuring the number of customer responses you receive from the campaign. The difficulty comes when you are tasked with quantifying market presence and brand influence. Fortunately, media monitoring has the ability to give your siding installation business a sense of market presence and other variables that are difficult to quantify. If executed properly, media monitoring can help your brand get ahead of negative messaging and exert greater influence over news cycles.

When It's Time to Rebrand

There are many reasons why it might be time to begin a rebranding initiative - but a lack of alternative tactics is not one of them. That's not how rebranding works. Instead, rebranding should be performed for the right reasons. For a siding installation business, the time to rebrand is when your current brand is outdated or no longer in sync with the needs of the marketplace. All businesses change over time and rebranding can bring your business profile in line with your current core competencies. Unless you are confident that you possess the skills necessary to rebrand your business, we advise consulting with a professional marketing firm before you introduce a new brand to your customers.

Broadcast Advertising

In an entertainment on-demand universe, broadcast TV and radio have been the big losers. But broadcast advertising hasn't disappeared entirely and siding installation businesses continue to find ways to attract audiences to their brand through broadcast media. Best practices for the use of broadcast advertising require businesses to evaluate their target audience's listening or viewing patterns and then tailor their media purchases to specific media outlets rather than blanketing the geography with brand messaging. When marketing siding installation businesses, the target audience is almost always local or regional. For broader reach, you'll likely need to look beyond broadcast venues and explore other online and offline marketing vehicles.
