Marketing Tips

 

Marketing a Barbershop

You have to be light on your feet to stay ahead of the curve these days, especially when you're promoting a barbershop. We have the information you need to create a nimble, yet effective marketing strategy for your business.

Strong and steady wins the race in marketing a barbershop. For businesses in this sector, solid execution and a commitment to core messaging are the most valuable marketing traits.

In general, good business owners make good marketers. However, the most visible brands are always on the lookout for the marketing tactics competitive barbershops have incorporated into their marketing plans.

Cost Tracking

The economy is a constant concern for people who own a barbershop. When businesses buy mailing lists, they expect a return for their investment. Unfortunately, they don't always get it. More often than not, you'll get a better ROI from highly rated list providers than you will from cheaper alternatives. Companies that rely on accurate mailing lists reduce time spent chasing down stale leads.

But mailing lists aren't the only way you can reduce costs. Most accounting software solutions have features that allow you to track costs in multiple expense categories and receive alerts when expenses suddenly swing outside of normal parameters.

Company Website

Technology is changing the way small businesses market their products and brands. The on-ramp for using technology to promote your barbershop must be an exceptional website. A shoddy, thrown-together website is a net loss for your organization. To compete online, your website has to contain features and design elements that encourage visitors to drill deeper and incorporate the site into their online routines. Conversion paths are also important. With the proper design, your site can walk new visitors through a series of decisions that culminate with either an online sale, a phone order, a personal visit or a request for more information.

Technological Expertise

The PR and marketing community has embraced technology with open arms, transforming basic marketing concepts into sophisticated, tech-driven systems and solutions. One of the things that needs to be considered by barbershops tends to be a search for news to leverage technology to scale up the organization's promotional firepower. Despite the initial cost associated with many technological solutions, the long-term payoff for the right technologies almost always outweighs the upfront expense.
