Marketing a Church Supplies Business

The task of promoting a church supplies business has to receive the highest priority in your organization. But what marketing techniques and strategies are successful in the current economy?

A single characteristic divides today's best church supplies businesses from companies at the bottom of the food chain.

But with the right combination of resources, techniques, and strategies, any church supplies business can achieve greater marketing dominance through strategic marketing and robust value messaging

Technological Expertise

The PR and marketing community has embraced technology with open arms, transforming basic marketing concepts into sophisticated, tech-driven systems and solutions. As a result, a primary concern of growth-oriented church supplies businesses tends to be a search for news to leverage technology to scale up the organization's promotional firepower. If possible, business owners should gravitate toward technologies that deliver greater ROI than traditional marketing channels.

Viral Marketing

Will Rogers said, "You can lead a horse to water, but you can't make him drink. However, you can put salt in his food." That's kind of how viral marketing works. By including viral elements in a campaign for a church supplies business, you ultimately have to cross your fingers and hope for the best. Although you have little control over whether or not your products go viral, there are things you can do to nurture your brand's viral capacity. Social media and other online vehicles can seed a viral marketing campaign, but you'll need to nurture their development through direct customer interaction as well as other techniques.

Managing Negative Publicity

Not sure how to handle negative PR? You're not alone. It's a probably faced by many church supplies 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. PR savvy church supplies businesses work with consultants to develop a crisis response plan that can be executed on a moment's notice. Since part of your crisis response may involve direct mail, we also recommend working with quality mailing list providers to obtain accurate contact lists.
