Marketing Tips

 

Marketing an Art Distributors and Publisher

You're heavily invested in the success of your art distribution and publishing 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.

A high-quality marketing plan connects your company to your customers. Without it, you'll quickly find your art distribution and publishing business cut off from the marketplace.

Business savvy entrepreneurs usually have a solid foundation in marketing. Unfortunately, it's takes more than a basic business mindset to achieve total market visibility. You will also have to become a student of specific marketing strategies for an art distribution and publishing business.

Why Branding Matters

Branding isn't just a marketing buzzword. It's a core concept for businesses trying to entrench themselves in consumer consciousness. It's a fact: A art distribution and publishing business is a brand. Some brands struggle to achieve recognition with consumers while others seem to be quickly embraced by the marketplace. By investing in brand awareness and positioning, you increase the trust factor and make it easier for consumers to choose your business over less-known competitors. In certain situations, branding can be used to establish dominance in specific product categories or service areas.

Promotional Calendars

Uncoordinated and disjointed marketing plans tend to backfire on art publishing and distribution companies. Instead of offering special promotions on the spur of the moment, we recommend creating a promotional calendar for the fiscal year. Although you can adjust the calendar as needed, advanced planning makes it easier to connect your company's marketing tactics to sales objectives, inventory levels, staffing, and other areas of the business. Consumer mailing lists from a respected provider can add value to your calendar by incorporating geographic and demographic consumer data into your promotional schedule.

Discounts

Discounts drive purchasing decisions, and art distribution and publishing business customers are no exception. The power of a great discount is its ability to convince buyers that are receiving special treatment, a deal that isn't ordinarily available. However, for consumers located in the art distribution and publishing business world, you won't get far with discounts unless you communicate clear value. Offsetting discounts with inflated pricing is a tired ploy that often does more harm than good. Instead, think about how you can use discounts to lure customers in during a slow period, to generate traction for new product offerings, and to break into new markets.
