The marketing model for a batteries retail business has changed dramatically over the past twenty years.
Simplistic promotional techniques can't penetrate the clutter of the current marketplace. You'll also need to incorporate creativity, common sense, and flawless execution into your marketing routines.
Lone rangers don't survive long in a batteries retail business. An awareness of industry resources can mitigate the isolation of ownership and result in a more stable (and more productive) leadership experience. The best resources are usually the ones that leverage industry-specific experience and the input of proven veterans.
The majority of batteries retail businesses understand that more customers will walk through the door if a few products are priced at less than full retail value. Moreover, a loss leader marketing strategy can compensate for dead periods when customers tend to making purchases. But to be effective, loss leader marketing requires planning, especially in product selection and price points. For the majority of batteries retail businesses, loss leaders substantially increase customer traffic and create opportunities to expose new consumers to the brand. Whenever possible, piggyback a loss leader approach with the purchase of bulk merchandise that can be bought at a discount.
Every piece of collateral your batteries retail business creates is a tangible reflection of your brand distinctive and core values. To squeeze the most impact from your collateral, it needs to be targeted toward its recipients. Delivered to the wrong person, a valuable piece of collateral will collect dust. For direct mail campaigns, premium mailing lists from established vendors can protect the value of your investment. If you're like most business owners, you invest substantial resources in the creation of quality collateral. If you don't invest similar resources in mailing lists and other distribution channels, your batteries retail business's investment in collateral will be pointless.
