Niche Selling

New businesses that attempt to tackle the entire marketplace face a difficult task. A better approach is to customize your approach to an underserved niche.

In the adult care business industry, niches can be based on location, business size or sub-specialties within the industry. For niche sellers, advance research is essential. Don't assume that there will be demand for a niche product line unless the research confirms your expectations.

Direct Marketing Strategies

Direct marketing is an effective way to sell to adult care businesses. The benefit of direct marketing is that it provides a cost-effective resource for reaching qualified prospects with targeted messaging. From a sales perspective, direct marketing establishes a platform for relationships with adult care businesses that can benefit from your products or services.

The tricky part about direct marketing is lead generation. Since reliable leads can be hard to find, we recommend using lead lists supplied by established third-party vendors. Over the years we've found that Experian is one of the best in the business with a reputation for supplying consistently reliable lists of adult care businesses that are primed for sales pitches.

How to Sell to Adult Care Businesses

After you have established contact with a prospect, how do you close the sale?

Like many of us, adult care business business owners are busy professionals operating on tight schedules. As a rule, be respectful of your customers' time constraints and adjust your pitches to accommodate their schedules.

In some instances, your initial contact at adult care businesses you call on may not even be the decision maker, so you'll need to quickly identify key staff and be prepared to sell to office managers or others in the organization.
