Marketing Tips

 

Marketing a Blinds Business

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

If it's executed properly, marketing spans the gap between your brand and your audience. If you fail to recognize the primacy of good marketing you'll quickly find your blinds business cut off from the marketplace.

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

Public Relations Strategies

Public relations is more subtle, but no less powerful than a full-blown marketing push. When blinds businesses leverage PR, they tell thought-provoking stories about their brand and products. In the process, they establish themselves as thought leaders and encourage the marketplace to give them a second look. The art of storytelling is a core PR competency. Storylines need to be believable and objective while communicating your brand's strengths and value proposition.

Strategic Partnerships

When multiple interests join together in a strategic partnership, they gain blinds businesses economies of scale, not to mention a larger promotional footprint. Under the right circumstances, a strategic marketing partnership can allow two or more small companies to overwhelm the market, effectively negating the presence of a larger competitor.

Broadcast Advertising

Broadcast advertising has clearly taken some hits over the past couple of decades. The number of consumers who tune-in to local TV and radio has plummeted, and the industry has struggled to regain its footing. However, it would be a mistake to discount broadcast advertising entirely. Many blinds businesses are leveraging broadcast media to perform specific aspects of their marketing strategies. It's critical to understand the limits and opportunities available in today's broadcast advertising industry. One area in which marketers continue to have success is during drive times when large numbers of listeners still tune-in to local radio. When marketing blinds businesses, the target audience is almost always local or regional. For broader reach, you'll likely need to look beyond broadcast venues and explore other online and offline marketing vehicles.
