Multiple marketing factors affect bottom line profitability. However, great marketing strategies share a common characteristic.
The marketplace is constantly shifting to accommodate consumer demand and that means businesses need to adapt their marketing requirements accordingly. The consistent application of solid marketing principles is one of the few business requirements that has stayed the same.
A niche marketing approach is a good fit for small businesses, particularly carpet and rug rental businesses trying to establish a larger footprint in a targeted market segment. Niche marketing isn't new. It's been around for years and has proven to be most effective for firms that understand their key strengths and core audience.
Furthermore, niche marketing means tailoring resource acquisitions to the needs of your market segment. For example, top providers can focus mailing lists to the specific requirements of your market niche.
Messaging matters - but only to the degree that it communicates value to cost-conscious consumers. Businesses that bundle products tap into the market's psyche by creating the perception (real or imagined) of cost-savings. Most carpet and rug rental businesses can use bundling to communicate value to their base. Since the bundling concept is based on discounts, consumers expect to pay less for the bundle than they would if they were to buy the products separately, so you'll need to make sure your bundle offers real value to buyers.
Lone rangers don't survive long in a carpet and rug rental business. Most leaders are oblivious to the fact that the marketplace shows no favoritism - for every marketing challenge your business faces, there are hundreds of other businesses and leaders struggling to solve the same problem. Trade associations, business networks, and other venues usually offer resources to help you improve your marketing skills. If possible, establish a mentoring relationship with an experienced industry veteran.
