Marketing a Cancer Information and Referral Service

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

As a business owner, it's imperative to understand that your financial metrics are inextricably linked to your marketing capacity.

Some marketing concepts are just common sense. Unfortunately, it's takes more than a basic business mindset to achieve total market visibility. You will also have to become a student of specific marketing strategies for a cancer information and referral service.

When It's Time to Rebrand

There are many reasons why it might be time to begin a rebranding initiative - but a lack of alternative tactics is not one of them. The most successful rebranding initiatives are the culmination of a deliberate process. For a cancer information and referral service, brands are tied to specific stages in the life of a business. If your company is expanding, you will inevitably outgrow your brand and it will be time to prepare for a comprehensive rebranding effort. With the help of a professional marketing firm, you can give your brand a fresh face while maintaining brand distinctives and brand recognition.

Social Media Monitoring

Brand advocacy is a buzzword in marketing circles. What does it mean? Using consumer-oriented platforms to encourage customers to create user-generated content about your products and company, typically through social media. 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 cancer information and referral services 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

Cost is an issue in marketing a cancer information and referral service. 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.
