Marketing Tips

 

Marketing a Carpet, Rug, and Upholstery Cleaning Equipment Rental Business

Trying to market a carpet, rug, and upholstery cleaning equipment rental business? It's a crowded marketplace, but with dedication and persistence, great marketing can help your business outperform larger competitors.

We see marketing as the great equalizer, a business discipline capable of dramatically increasing a small company's footprint in the marketplace.

Customer loyalty isn't what it used to be. Cash is king in today's marketplace, so your marketing plan needs to focus on value messages.

Competitive Awareness

Competitive awareness is the starting point for creativity in marketing. There's nothing wrong with creativity, but if it precludes your messaging from being represented alongside other carpet, rug, and upholstery cleaning equipment rental businesses, there's a good chance that you're missing something. At a minimum, we recommend seeking a third-party perspective before you adopt any innovations that dramatically alter your marketing model.

Sponsorships

Event and team sponsorships are a proven method for raising the public profile of carpet, rug, and upholstery cleaning equipment rental businesses. The goal is to increase sales by generating visibility and goodwill about your company and/or your market offerings. But if you aren't deliberate, you can invest big bucks in sponsorships and receive little return for your investment. It's critical to accurately match your event and team sponsorships to likely carpet, rug, and upholstery cleaning equipment rental business patrons. To minimize costs and multiply outcomes, consider teaming up with a complementary business to co-sponsor targeted events.

Market Segmentation

Whether they admit it or not, all businesses adopt segmented marketing strategies. The marketplace is simply too large to effectively market a carpet, rug, and upholstery cleaning equipment rental business to the entire marketplace. Market segmentation has been around for decades and it has enabled many smaller companies to dominate parts of the market, even when they face competition from larger firms.

Consumer and B2B lead list providers specialize in helping businesses segment diverse markets. By sorting and filtering current databases, your list vendor provides lists containing the names and contact information of likely buyers that fall within the parameters of your carpet, rug, and upholstery cleaning equipment rental business market agenda.
