Marketing Advice

 

Marketing a Chefs Business

Small and medium size chefs businesses can compete and even outperform larger competitors. All it takes is the right marketing plan.

Novice marketers are typically unprepared for the challenge of promoting brands and products in the competitive arena.

Staying on track requires attention to detail and a commitment to foundational marketing principles.

Give Word of Mouth Marketing a Try

Industry-leading chefs businesses use word of mouth marketing to speak to new customers and roll out new product offerings.

As a rule, your marketing strategy should include mechanisms that encourage meaningful brand conversations and spread the good word about your business. The key with word of mouth marketing tactics is to avoid using them in situations where word of mouth marketing is not applicable.

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 chefs businesses, there's a good chance that you're missing something. Many businesses find it useful to hire a professional marketing firm to help them evaluate the competitive landscape and devise strategies to exploit competitors' weaknesses.

Cost Tracking

Are you struggling to contain costs? That's familiar theme among entrepreneurs who lead a chefs business. When businesses buy mailing lists, they expect a return for their investment. Unfortunately, they don't always get it. More often than not, you'll get a better ROI from highly rated list providers than you will from cheaper alternatives. Companies that rely on accurate mailing lists reduce time spent chasing down stale leads.

But mailing lists aren't the only way you can reduce costs. Most accounting software solutions have features that allow you to track costs in multiple expense categories and receive alerts when expenses suddenly swing outside of normal parameters.
