We see marketing as the great equalizer, a business discipline capable of dramatically increasing a small company's footprint in the marketplace.
Marketing increases the brand footprint of a computer store using a carefully crafted mix of techniques and tactics.
Some marketing initiatives lend themselves to simple measurement while others are more challenging. Outsourced lead generation through reputable mailing list vendors facilitates easy measurement and evaluation for direct mail campaigns. But how do you go about measuring your brand's marketing footprint in geographic and demographic sectors? With the help of marketing professionals, media monitoring can provide up-to-date assessments of the amount of influence your computer store has in the public sphere. If executed properly, media monitoring can help your brand get ahead of negative messaging and exert greater influence over news cycles.
When It's Time to Rebrand
Looking for a way to re-catalyze your marketing program? If you need a quick fix, rebranding might not be the right tool for the job. Rebranding is an intentional marketing technique designed to deliver long term results. For a computer store, owners are often inspired to rebrand after analysis has demonstrated that the current brand is losing its impact in the marketplace. Unless you are confident that you possess the skills necessary to rebrand your business, we advise consulting with a professional marketing firm before you introduce a new brand to your customers.
Directories are a common tool for finding a computer store. When all of your competitors are listed in a directory, you have no choice in the matter. To keep pace, competitive businesses must include the same directories in their plans for marketing computer stores to both broad and targeted customer bases. Premium directories may or may not deliver the ROI you expect to receive from paid marketing vehicles. Do your research and make sure any directory in which you list your business is capable of reaching enough likely customers to make it worth the effort. 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.
