For a birthing center, exceptional product quality is only part of the struggle to meet revenue goals.
By applying a few common sense tips and marketing fundamentals, you can avoid the pitfalls and set your company on the path to marketing success.
Despite the unrelenting demands of generating content on a monthly or quarterly basis, a company newsletter has promising potential as a marketing device. Blatant marketing messages aren't appropriate in newsletters because they don't communicate informational value to your customers. Instead, your newsletter should contain industry news, product use tips, and other content that captures your customers' attention. Increasingly, birthing centers rely on newsletters as cornerstones of a deliberate PR and marketing strategy, combining print and online distribution channels.
Why Branding Matters
Think of branding as a consumer shortcut. Since the average consumer doesn't have time to thoroughly evaluate every product that crosses their path, they make buying decisions based on the brands they trust. Whether you know it or not, your birthing center has brand characteristics. Smart marketing strategies differentiate and reinforce brand identity. By investing in brand awareness and positioning, you increase the trust factor and make it easier for consumers to choose your business over less-known competitors. In certain situations, branding can be used to establish dominance in specific product categories or service areas.
Measurement & Evaluation
Performance is the ultimate measure of quality. You can improve the quality of your B2B and B2C efforts by considering professional mailing lists provided by established vendors. That's just one of the ways birthing centers may be able to increase the impact of their marketing tactics. But on the whole, measurement and evaluation are two of the most powerful weapons in your ROI arsenal. A robust measurement and evaluation process should include metrics that can be monitored on a monthly, weekly or even daily basis. Designed to monitor marketing efforts on a campaign-by-campaign basis, these metrics can be used as a baseline for strategic planning. Technology plays a role in marketing measurements, so birthing centers often choose to consult with professional marketers for assessment tools and strategic insights.
