Marketing Tips

 

Marketing a Bedding Wholesale and Manufacturers Business

A profitable bedding wholesale and manufacturers business is about more than supply and demand. It's about designing ways to entice new customers to engage with your products and to encourage existing customers to increase the frequency of their purchases.

It's clear that exceptional bedding wholesale and manufacturers business entrepreneurs tend to possess solid marketing skills. Yet in this industry, the characteristics of able marketers aren't always obvious.

In general, good business owners make good marketers. However, the most visible brands are always on the lookout for the marketing tactics competitive bedding wholesale and manufacturers businesses utilize in the marketplace.

Product Knowledge

There is no substitute for being able to speak convincingly about your products in a bedding wholesale and manufacturers business. Whether you outsource marketing or handle it in-house, the more familiar marketing personnel are with your products' distinctive characteristics, the easier it will be to devise marketing strategies that differentiate your bedding wholesale and manufacturers business from the rest of the field. Product knowledge is so important that we advise SMBs to consult a marketing professional to identify and exploit their brands' product-based value propositions.

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 bedding wholesale and manufacturers businesses, premium mailing lists from list providers can help expand your customer base. But as your customer base grows, you'll also need to develop programs that reward customer loyalty. Get it right and each new customer will represent a step forward in your company's growth; blow it and you'll end up struggling to acquire new customers just to maintain a breakeven revenue position.

Social Media Monitoring

The use of social media as a marketing tool is the latest wave to overtake the small business community. Combined with a functional company website, social media attracts new customers and converts them to brand advocates. 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. All bedding wholesale and manufacturers businesses need to be particularly sensitive about the potential for negative brand commentary on social media sites. To counter negative social media, you'll need to monitor your brand's online presence and enter the conversation, redirecting negative discussions toward more positive topics.
