Sales, profitability, market share -- the things that matter most to business owners all come down to how well you market your brand and products.
Good business sense gets you started on the path to marketing success. But to achieve your goals, there are some other things you'll also need to learn about marketing a car leasing business.
Every marketing tactic you use has to deliver results. You can't afford to waste money on ineffective tactics for your car leasing business.
Professional mailing lists improve ROI even further. Vendors can filter your lists to likely buyers, reducing mailing costs and increasing the impact of your direct mail campaigns.
Assigning responsibility for the execution of a marketing strategy can be more difficult than creating it. A dedicated, in-house marketing division is a possibility, but in small businesses, it's more likely that owners or managers will pick up marketing as a secondary job responsibility. That can be problematic because marketing can't afford to be pushed to the backburner. There are numerous reasons why car leasing businesses enlist the assistance of external marketing professionals. A high quality marketing firm can deliver a much better ROI than internal stakeholders who aren't primarily focused on marketing functions.
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 car leasing 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 car leasing 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.
