As a business owner, it's imperative to understand that your financial metrics are inextricably linked to your marketing capacity.
So what separates the best aquatic plants businesses from average companies? Most of the time it's not the quality of their product offerings -- it's their ability to communicate granular marketing messages to their customer base.
Improving Customer Loyalty
You've heard that it's less expensive to retain a current customer than it is to acquire a new one, right? For aquatic plants businesses, sorted and updated mailing lists obtained from top-tier providers are effective tools for customer acquisition. However, customer acquisition will only get you so far. To achieve revenue growth, you'll need to combine customer acquisition channels with strategies and mechanisms designed to transform new customers into followers and hopefully, brand advocates.
Do We Really Need A Logo?
Having a strong logo for an aquatic plants business is a big deal. In tight markets, logos differentiate one company from the next. More importantly, a good logo can differentiate your value proposition from your competitors. Logos aren't something that can be changed overnight so it's important to put some thought into logo design. With a lot riding on a logo, it's worth the investment to hire a professional marketing and design firm for your logo needs.
Social Media Monitoring
Social media has become a prominent fixture in marketing. For small businesses, an aggressive social media campaign can level the playing field by generating online buzz that competes with corporate marketing initiatives. Social media can quickly go negative, turning brand advocacy into "badvocacy", a scenario in which consumers and users create content deriding your company and your products. These days, aquatic plants businesses are especially vulnerable to negative exposure through social media. If your brand is taking a hit from negative mentions, it's important to generate enough positive content to push negative mentions down in search rankings. The more positive mentions that exist, the more difficult it is for negative comments (generated through social media) to gain traction on search engines like Google and Yahoo.
