Marketing a Draperies and Curtains Retail Business

Promotional tactics for draperies and curtains retail businesses are exceptionally diverse. But in our experience, there are a handful of tips and strategies that will deliver the best return for your marketing efforts.

The promotional strategy for a draperies and curtains retail business has historically adapted to changes in consumer buying patterns and the market itself.

Top performers habitually integrate sound marketing concepts with market demands.

Email Campaigns

How many people do you know who don't have an email account? Not many. That's why email campaigns are gaining popularity among small and medium-size business owners throughout the industry. In many draperies and curtains retail businesses, the real challenge is compiling a substantive quantity of qualified email addresses. If you're working under a tight deadline or can't afford the time to create lists in-house, consider purchasing email lists from premium providers.

Generating Buzz

Good buzz is a mythical creature in marketing circles. Although it's rumored to exist, it's hard to nail down. Whether you call it viral marketing or word-of-mouth advertising, a lot of ground can be gained by encouraging positive conversations about your company. For a draperies and curtains retail business, meaningful brand conversations have the ability to transform the impact of your marketing efforts. The process begins with developing communication vehicles and mechanisms that invite discussion. With minimal effort, you can instigate conversations through social media and other communication vehicles favored by today's consumers.

Social Media Monitoring

Brand advocacy is a buzzword in marketing circles. What does it mean? Using consumer-oriented platforms to encourage customers to create user-generated content about your products and company, typically through social media. 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. All draperies and curtains retail businesses are especially vulnerable to negative exposure through social media. Social media monitoring can be as simple as periodical Google searches or as complex as the application of sophisticated monitoring software. Either way, it's essential to develop a system for regularly monitoring your company's presence in social media, followed by positive customer engagements.
