Although innovation is important, consistency is critical when you market a cattle buyers business. In this industry, the application of fundamental marketing tactics is more valuable than promotional fads and gimmicks.
Top performers habitually integrate sound marketing concepts with market demands.
Managing Negative Publicity
Not sure how to handle negative PR? You're not alone. It's a probably faced by many cattle buyers businesses. The worst way to handle negative buzz is to put off developing a response until reporters are pounding on your door, demanding a comment from a company spokesperson. At Gaebler, we advise our business partners to have an updated crisis response plan in place at all times. In a crisis, accurate contact lists can be a lifesaver. A top quality mailing list provider can provide fast turnaround times on up-to-date and filtered lists.
If you haven't done so already, the first step in marketing your cattle buyers business must be an exceptional website. Although many businesses have a website, a poorly designed and unnavigable website is worse than having no web presence at all. Your site is a representation of your business; it needs to convey the same professional appearance and functionality as you expect from any other sales and marketing asset. Conversion paths are also important. With the proper design, your site can walk new visitors through a series of decisions that culminate with either an online sale, a phone order, a personal visit or a request for more information.
Hiring A Marketing Firm
Sooner or later, most cattle buyers 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. Once you decide to hire a professional marketing firm for your cattle buyers business, it's important to find a firm with proven experience in the industry. Avoid young marketing firms staffed exclusively with inexperienced hot shots. Novice marketers bring a lot of passion to the table, but they also tend to embrace high-risk marketing strategies that lack the payoff you'll get from an established firm.
