Marketing a Building Contractors Business

There is little room for error in marketing a building contractors business in today's economy. Fortunately, we have the information you need to stay ahead of the curve and outperform the rest of the field.

Multiple marketing factors affect bottom line profitability. However, great marketing strategies share a common characteristic.

Business savvy entrepreneurs usually have a solid foundation in marketing. But to achieve your goals, there are some other things you'll also need to learn about marketing a building contractors business.

Hiring A Marketing Firm

Many building contractors business operations turn to marketing firms for guidance. Unless you have a marketing background, you won't be able to touch the ROI you'll receive from a professional firm. Does a marketing firm cost money? Sure, but not as much as you may think. When it's time to look for a marketing firm to represent your building contractors business, the first thing to look for is marketing experience. Marketing firms that lack industry experience are sometimes unfamiliar with competitive marketing channels and may not understand the value propositions that dominate industry messaging.

ROI

Good marketing is expensive. You can't afford to waste money on ineffective tactics for your building contractors business.

Mailings and other direct B2C/B2B channels can deliver decent ROI, but only if the lists are accurate, up-to-date and targeted to your market segment. For filtered and sorted mailing lists, you'll want to work with one of the direct mail industry's leading list providers.

Geolocational Marketing

Androids, iPhones and Blackberries have made mobile technology a must-have resource for today's consumers. Equipped with GPS components, today's smartphones give consumers the ability to perform navigation and other geolocational tasks. Since you're a building contractors business marketer, geolocational features can be a powerful weapon in your marketing arsenal. Talk to a professional marketing firm about how you can tap into geolocational resources as a way to draw mobile consumers to your products. There are many ways to influence consumers through mobile GPS. However, in its simplest form, geolocational marketing enables consumers to identify a building contractors business in their immediate area.
