Marketing a Coffee Service Business

Marketing plays a central role in any company. But when it comes to a coffee service business, your ability to market your brand can be the deciding factor between barely making it and achieving stellar industry success.

For every coffee service business success story, there many more coffee service businesses that fail to reach sales and revenue targets.

Marketing increases the brand footprint of a coffee service business and drives the customer acquisition process.

Public Relations Strategies

Marketing and public relations are two distinct promotional disciplines. While marketing flows blatant advertising messages to audiences, PR takes a more educational and informative approach. If you want to send unrestricted marketing messages to your audience, buy a mailing list and perform a direct mail campaign. But if your strategy calls for sophistication, media buy-in and thought leadership, hire a PR consultant. Since PR leverages media outlets, it may cost nothing to acquire media placements that feature interesting storylines about your products and brand. The trick is learning how to pitch storylines to media professionals without sounding too promotional or sales-oriented.

Newsletters

Despite the unrelenting demands of generating content on a monthly or quarterly basis, a company newsletter has promising potential as a marketing device. Unlike flyers and other advertising mediums, newsletters have an informational focus. In fact, the best newsletters encourage customers to take the next step without ever asking for a sale. Increasingly, coffee service businesses to distribute newsletters through online channels (e.g. in email campaigns and as PDFs on the company website).

Marketing Expertise

Don't have a background in marketing? That shouldn't stop you from taking a larger promotional role in your company by educating yourself about today's most effective marketing concepts. Entrepreneurs and leaders of coffee service businesses need to make every dollar count, especially when it comes to their marketing budgets. If you don't have a marketing background, it's critical to either educate yourself about basic marketing principles or consult with a professional marketing firm. We advise our business partners to seriously consider outsourcing their promotional requirements because professional marketers tend to have their fingers on the pulse of the marketplace.
