Marketing Tips

 

Marketing a Christmas Trees and Wreaths Wholesale and Manufacturers Business

A profitable Christmas trees and wreaths wholesale and manufacturers business is about more than supply and demand. It's about designing ways to entice new customers to engage with your products and to encourage existing customers to increase the frequency of their purchases.

Still looking for a way to effectively market your Christmas trees and wreaths wholesale and manufacturers business? It's hard to get your messages heard through the industry's noise.

In general, good business owners make good marketers. But as an innovative business leader, you need to follow the strategies that other Christmas trees and wreaths wholesale and manufacturers businesses utilize in the marketplace.

Media Monitoring

Some marketing initiatives lend themselves to simple measurement while others are more challenging. Direct mail can be evaluated by tallying the cost of inputs (e.g. a premium mailing list, printing, postage, etc.) and measuring the number of customer responses you receive from the campaign. The difficulty comes when you are tasked with quantifying market presence and brand influence. With the help of marketing professionals, media monitoring can provide up-to-date assessments of the amount of influence your Christmas trees and wreaths wholesale and manufacturers business has in the public sphere. Although media monitoring is not the only tool for measuring intangible brand qualities, it has the benefit of highlighting negative PR, giving your Christmas trees and wreaths wholesale and manufacturers business the ability to control bad buzz when it appears in the marketplace.

Loss Leaders

The majority of Christmas trees and wreaths wholesale and manufacturers businesses understand that more customers will walk through the door if a few products are priced at less than full retail value. Moreover, a loss leader marketing strategy can compensate for dead periods when customers tend to making purchases. A classic mistake of loss leader marketing is to create pricing without researching the competition. In a worse case scenario, you could be counting on pricing that is higher than your competitors. For the majority of Christmas trees and wreaths wholesale and manufacturers businesses, the real benefits of loss leaders emerge through the careful marketing of other products, usually offered at a much higher margin. Whenever possible, piggyback a loss leader approach with the purchase of bulk merchandise that can be bought at a discount.

Expand Your Advertising Options

Take a look around the industry. Chances are, you'll see companies using a vast array of advertising vehicles to communicate brand messages. When it comes to Christmas trees and wreaths wholesale and manufacturers businesses, the challenge is identifying the advertising solutions that are appropriate for your customers and consistent with your marketing goals. These days, Christmas trees and wreaths wholesale and manufacturers businesses 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.
