Marketing Advice

 

Marketing a Cultural Attractions, Events, and Facilities Business

At Gaebler, we've seen what great marketing can do for a small business. But if you own a cultural attractions, events, and facilities business, exceptional marketing may well be the determining factor in your long-term survival and success.

A snazzy logo, glossy brochure and must-have brand merchandise mean nothing apart from a robust marketing strategy.

Concerned about customer loyalty? Producing high quality products isn't enough to lure customers back to your business. These days, customers expect value and nothing communicates value more than a solid marketing plan.

ROI

Good marketing is expensive. ROI concerns should be at the forefront of your mind when you think about the many ways you can promote your cultural attractions, events, and facilities business.

Mailings and other direct marketing strategies are common, but to realize maximum ROI we recommend purchasing consumer or B2B mailing lists from a reputable provider. Using the web, you can easily find the leading mailing list providers with an extensive database of targeted and updated sales prospects.

Marketing Expertise

Whether you're a marketing newbie or a seasoned veteran, you need to make a deliberate effort to educate yourself about innovative marketing principles. Entrepreneurs and leaders of cultural attractions, events, and facilities businesses are usually hesitant to engage in high-risk marketing. Since inexperience raises the risk level, the quality of the marketer is just as important as the quality of the message. When in doubt, tap into either an internal or external knowledge base to design your company's marketing strategy.

Social Media Monitoring

The use of social media as a marketing tool is the latest wave to overtake the small business community. Combined with a functional company website, social media attracts new customers and converts them to brand advocates. Even though the potential for social media to generate positive conversations about your product is good, the potential for it to create negative, online word-of-mouth is a concern that must be taken seriously. Most cultural attractions, events, and facilities businesses are especially vulnerable to negative exposure through social media. To counter negative social media, you'll need to monitor your brand's online presence and enter the conversation, redirecting negative discussions toward more positive topics.
