Small-mindedness has no place in great marketing. In fact, a strong marketing strategy can give a small business high visibility in the marketplace.
With a little luck and lot of hard work, any carnival can achieve greater marketing dominance through strategic marketing and robust value messaging
Top carnivals struggle to keep pace with the customers in their market. In this market sector, managers and promoters need to be extremely familiar with their customers' needs and purchasing preferences. More often than not, failure to maintain a robust connection with the marketplace translates into poor brand recognition and lackluster sales. By improving market awareness, small companies can often establish more meaningful customer connections than their competitors.
Smartphones have added a new wrinkle to small business marketing. Consumers seem especially keen on using mobile devices for geolocational shopping. Since you're a carnival business leader, 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. Although cutting edge marketers are tailoring promotional messaging based on the viewer's current location, it may be enough to explore ways for consumers to be made aware of the presence of a carnival in their immediate area.
At some point, your carnival will engage in direct marketing. Direct mail has the advantage of delivering targeted messaging to qualified contacts within your company's market segment. At Gaebler, we advise small and medium-sized businesses to purchase mailing lists from reliable providers. Are vendor-provided mailing lists worth the investment? We think so. But the real value is that the quality of the contacts contained in a premium mailing list can be the catalyst for long-term customer relationships.
