Marketing Tips

 

Marketing a Carbide Business

At Gaebler, we've seen what great marketing can do for a small business. But if you own a carbide 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.

Purpose in marketing is the key to success in this space. High-performing carbide businesses leave no stone unturned when it comes to marketing strategy. Your company is one-of-a-kind. But your marketing strategy will need to include a handful of features that are common to the industry's top performers.

Promotional Calendars

Sloppy marketing programs have no place in growing carbide businesses. A strategy chocked full of time-sensitive ad placements and other tactics can devolve into a tangled mess of overlapping deliverables unless it is coordinated in a promotional calendar. Good calendars include not only tactical deadlines, but also schedules for the inputs (e.g. staff assets, vendors, etc.) that are required to execute strategic objectives. Many list vendors appreciate promotional calendars because they are useful for timing the delivery of the resources your business needs to meet strategic objectives.

Sponsorships

Event and team sponsorships are a proven method for raising the public profile of carbide businesses. Successful sponsorships create connections with customers; ineffective ones alienate customers and drain your marketing budget. The key is to limit sponsorships to events that are attended by people who are regular carbide business customers. To minimize costs and multiply outcomes, consider teaming up with a complementary business to co-sponsor targeted events.

Hiring A Marketing Firm

Think you can handle your own marketing? There is a reason why many carbide 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 carbide 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.
