As a business owner, it's imperative to understand that your financial metrics are inextricably linked to your marketing capacity.
In some businesses, marketing takes a back seat to sales and operations. That's a mistake because without marketing, your brand messages aren't being heard. On the upside, great marketing is a real possibility for a Christian Science church willing to adapt its strategy to the demands of the marketplace.
Advertise More Effectively
The number of advertising options to choose from can be overwhelming. Traditional advertising mediums like print ads, billboards, TV & radio commercials, are still popular in many industries and business sectors. When it comes to Christian Science churches, it is mission critical to identify the advertising vehicles that are most likely to meet the specific marketing goals your business is facing right now. These days, Christian Science churches get solid marketing results from online channels capable of streaming high value content to a large, yet targeted customer base. In general, if your competitors know more about promoting their business online than you, you may lose market share.
Messaging matters - but only to the degree that it communicates value to cost-conscious consumers. For centuries, entrepreneurs have understood that bundled products reinforce buyers' value concerns while increasing their business's total revenue position. If you have never bundled before, take out word for it - most Christian Science churches have the ability to bundle multiple products and services into a single offering that customers find appealing. 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.
Multichannel Marketing Strategies
Are you up to speed on the multichannel marketing concept?. Today's consumers engage with brands in diverse ways. That means brands need to demonstrate similar diversity in the channels they employ to connect with customers.
In today's marketplace, it simply isn't possible for Christian Science churches that funnel the bulk of their resources toward a single marketing channel to maintain a noticeable presence in the marketplace. In practice, multichannel means embracing a mixture of online and offline message pipelines, based on the places your customers go for information. The acquisition of reliable mailing lists from proven providers can expedite the transition, but ultimately your efforts to go multichannel may require the assistance of a marketing professional.
