For a collectible and vintage clothing retail business, a great business model doesn't guarantee solid revenues.

Purpose in marketing is the key to success in this space. High-performing collectible and vintage clothing retail businesses are intentional about devising and executing winning marketing strategies. Your company is one-of-a-kind. But your marketing strategy will need to include a handful of features that are common to the industry's top performers.

Marketing Collateral

Brochures, business cards, folders, direct mail pieces, and other types of promotional materials are called marketing collateral. For collectible and vintage clothing retail businesses, it's important to make sure every piece of marketing collateral generate reinforces your brand and value proposition. 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. It doesn't make sense to invest time and creativity in marketing collateral only to drop the ball on distribution. Without proper attention to distribution details, your collectible and vintage clothing retail business's brochures, direct mail letters and other content has no value.

These days, the key to effective print advertising is to align the publication with your business goals and ROI requirements.

Marketing Consultants

Small business owners sometimes struggle to justify the expense of a marketing consultant, especially if they don't appreciate the role of marketing in their company's long-term success. Although professional marketing advice does represent an additional cost, it's an expense that you will recover many times over through increased sales revenue.
