Marketing a Canvas Goods Repair Business

Marketing a canvas goods repair business isn't as simple as it seems. To get noticed, you'll need to invest time, energy, and resources in an innovative marketing plan.

The marketing model for a canvas goods repair business has historically adapted to changes in consumer buying patterns and the market itself.

A lack of marketing experience can sometimes be overcome through persistence and innovation, two key features of canvas goods repair business marketing success.

Public Relations Strategies

Public relations is more subtle, but no less powerful than a full-blown marketing push. For example, if you buy a premium mailing list and use it to conduct a direct mail campaign, that's marketing. On the other hand, if the Sunday paper runs a story about your canvas goods repair business, that's PR. Since PR leverages media outlets, it may cost nothing to acquire media placements that feature interesting storylines about your products and brand. The trick is learning how to pitch storylines to media professionals without sounding too promotional or sales-oriented.

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. But broadcast advertising hasn't disappeared entirely and canvas goods repair businesses continue to find ways to attract audiences to their brand through broadcast media. Best practices for the use of broadcast advertising require businesses to evaluate their target audience's listening or viewing patterns and then tailor their media purchases to specific media outlets rather than blanketing the geography with brand messaging. When marketing canvas goods repair businesses, local consumers may represent a sizeable portion of total revenues, making local radio and other broadcast media viable marketing channels -- but only to the extent that you match the station's audience to your customer base.

Industry Resources

Lone rangers don't survive long in a canvas goods repair business. Although there is a tendency to believe that the challenges you face are unique to your business, your competitors face many of the same marketing hurdles and obstacles. To overcome those obstacles, you'll need to tap into industry resources. Even though trade journals have value, we've found that the best insights are often gained through face-to-face contact with industry insiders.
