Marketing Tips


Marketing a Clipping Services Business

Promotional tactics for clipping services businesses are exceptionally diverse. But in our experience, there are a handful of tips and strategies that will deliver the best return for your marketing efforts.

The marketing model for a clipping services business has changed dramatically over the past twenty years.

Top performers habitually integrate sound marketing concepts with market demands.


You've seen the contest concept in action, even if it wasn't used in a clipping services business. Although a contest won't automatically translate into higher revenue, it can be a strategic component of a comprehensive marketing plan. Even good contests carry risks, namely the possibility that your business will be dogged by allegations of unfair prize awards. That's why clipping services businesses invest time and resources to create contests they can count on to achieve desired outcomes.

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 clipping services businesses, there's a good chance that you're missing something. At a minimum, we recommend seeking a third-party perspective before you adopt any innovations that dramatically alter your marketing model.

Marketing Collateral

Every piece of collateral your clipping services business creates is a tangible reflection of your brand distinctive and core values. To squeeze the most impact from your collateral, it needs to be targeted toward its recipients. Delivered to the wrong person, a valuable piece of collateral will collect dust. For direct mail campaigns, premium mailing lists from established vendors can protect the value of your investment. If you're like most business owners, you invest substantial resources in the creation of quality collateral. If you don't invest similar resources in mailing lists and other distribution channels, your clipping services business's marketing collateral will be wasted.
