Marketing Advice

 

Marketing a Specialty Printing Business

Trying to market a specialty printing business? It's a crowded marketplace, but with dedication and persistence, great marketing can help your business outperform larger competitors.

As a business owner, it's imperative to understand that your financial metrics are inextricably linked to your marketing capacity.

Ready for some marketing advice that will help you grow your business? The most successful specialty printing businesses achieve market dominance through the careful execution of deliberate strategies. The inclusion of innovative tactics and techniques is important, but the consistent application of sound marketing principles may be the most important factor in raising your brand's visibility with buyers.

Managing Negative Publicity

Negative publicity is never easy to deal with, especially for specialty printing businesses. The worst way to handle negative buzz is to put off developing a response until reporters are pounding on your door, demanding a comment from a company spokesperson. PR savvy specialty printing businesses work with consultants to develop a crisis response plan that can be executed on a moment's notice. Mailing list providers can also provide quick access to accurate mailing lists, an important consideration if your crisis response plan contains a direct mail component.

Directories

Directories are a common tool for finding a specialty printing business. When all of your competitors are listed in a directory, you have no choice in the matter. To keep pace, competitive businesses must include the same directories in their plans for marketing specialty printing businesses in a region or territory. Premium directories may or may not deliver the ROI you expect to receive from paid marketing vehicles. Regardless of whether it is a premium or free listing opportunity, every directory needs to be evaluated on its own merits. As consumers demonstrate a preference for online channels, make sure your listing include your company's web address and possibly even information about your social media presence.

Advertise More Effectively

The number of advertising options to choose from can be overwhelming. Traditional advertising mediums like print ads, billboards, TV & radio commercials, are still popular in many industries and business sectors. When it comes to specialty printing businesses, the challenge is identifying the advertising solutions that are appropriate for your customers and consistent with your marketing goals. These days, specialty printing businesses get solid marketing results from online channels capable of streaming high value content to a large, yet targeted customer base.
