Marketing Tips

 

Marketing a Bookbinding Business

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

Marketing is much more than classified ads, business cards, and brochures.

In general, good business owners make good marketers. But to rise to the top of the industry, you'll need to gain a deeper understanding of the marketing tactics competitive bookbinding businesses utilize in the marketplace.

Cost Tracking

Cost is an issue in marketing a bookbinding business. You can't afford to waste money on inferior marketing resources. Since every dollar counts, it pays to buy mailing lists from trusted 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.

Customer Awareness

Many of the highest performing bookbinding businesses struggle to keep pace with the customers in their market. In this market sector, managers and promoters need to be extremely familiar with their customers' needs and purchasing preferences. More often than not, failure to maintain a robust connection with the marketplace translates into poor brand recognition and lackluster sales. By improving market awareness, small companies can often establish more meaningful customer connections than their competitors.

Directories

Directories are a common tool for finding a bookbinding business. When all of your competitors are listed in a directory, you have no choice in the matter. To keep pace, competitive businesses must include the same directories in their plans for marketing bookbinding businesses in a region or territory. Premium directories may or may not deliver the ROI you expect to receive from paid marketing vehicles. Regardless of whether it is a premium or free listing opportunity, every directory needs to be evaluated on its own merits. Some directories may also let you list more than your name and contact information, so be sure to ask whether your listing can include a logo and other information about your business.
