Marketing Tips

 

Marketing a Commissary Services Business

Trying to market a commissary services business? It's a crowded marketplace, but with dedication and persistence, great marketing can help your business outperform larger competitors.

A single characteristic divides today's best commissary services businesses from the rest of the pack.

A lack of marketing experience can sometimes be overcome through persistence and innovation, two key features of commissary services business market leadership.

Directories

There are many different kinds of directories in which to list a commissary services business. Yellow pages, industry listings, online databases, and other directory options are routinely used as vehicles for promoting commissary services businesses in a region or territory. Although there are plenty of free directory opportunities out there, some directories charge a fee to include your business in their listing. Regardless of whether it is a premium or free listing opportunity, every directory needs to be evaluated on its own merits. Some directories may also let you list more than your name and contact information, so be sure to ask whether your listing can include a logo and other information about your business.

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 commissary services businesses, you may not have all of the information you need to make an informed marketing decision. At a minimum, we recommend seeking a third-party perspective before you adopt any innovations that dramatically alter your marketing model.

Multichannel Marketing Strategies

Multichannel is an important buzzword in today's marketing circles. Today's consumers engage with brands in diverse ways. That means brands need to demonstrate similar diversity in the channels they employ to connect with customers.

A single channel approach just isn't enough for a commissary services business to create an acceptable market footprint. In practice, multichannel means embracing a mixture of online and offline message pipelines, based on the places your customers go for information. The acquisition of reliable mailing lists from proven providers can expedite the transition, but ultimately your efforts to go multichannel may require the assistance of a marketing professional.
