Marketing a Bells and Chimes Business

At Gaebler, we've seen what great marketing can do for a small business. But if you own a bells and chimes business, exceptional marketing may well be the determining factor in your long-term survival and success.

If you are a business leader who sees marketing as a path to give your bells and chimes business a competitive advantage you're not alone.

Staying on track requires attention to detail and a commitment to foundational marketing principles.

Marketing Expertise

A lack of personal marketing experience is not an excuse for moving forward without the support of a promotional knowledge base. Entrepreneurs and leaders of bells and chimes businesses need to make every dollar count, especially when it comes to their marketing budgets. If you don't have a marketing background, it's critical to either educate yourself about basic marketing principles or consult with a professional marketing firm. We advise our business partners to seriously consider outsourcing their promotional requirements because professional marketers tend to have their fingers on the pulse of the marketplace.

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 bells and chimes businesses have too much at stake to ignore derogatory social media mentions. 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.

Cost Tracking

Are you struggling to contain costs? That's familiar theme among entrepreneurs who lead a bells and chimes business. For direct mailing campaigns and other strategic initiatives, it's hard to argue with the ROI you receive from updated mailing lists provided by the industry's leading list vendors. Good mailing lists are money in the bank; they deliver leads, revenue and most importantly, new customers.

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.
