Marketing a Drawing Materials and Supplies Business

Looking for innovative ways to market a drawing materials and supplies business? Although you there are no magic bullets that will enable you to dominate the industry, there are several things you can do to improve visibility and market presence.

The task of promoting a drawing materials and supplies business is an unforgiving exercise, full of hurdles and hidden challenges.

Business savvy entrepreneurs usually have a solid foundation in marketing. Unfortunately, it's takes more than a basic business mindset to achieve total market visibility. You will also have to become a student of specific marketing strategies for a drawing materials and supplies business.

Bundling

Messaging matters - but only to the degree that it communicates value to cost-conscious consumers. Businesses that bundle products tap into the market's psyche by creating the perception (real or imagined) of cost-savings. Most drawing materials and supplies businesses can use bundling to communicate value to their base. Since the bundling concept is based on discounts, consumers expect to pay less for the bundle than they would if they were to buy the products separately, so you'll need to make sure your bundle offers real value to buyers.

Public Relations Strategies

Public relations is more subtle, but no less powerful than a full-blown marketing push. If you want to send unrestricted marketing messages to your audience, buy a mailing list and perform a direct mail campaign. But if your strategy calls for sophistication, media buy-in and thought leadership, hire a PR consultant. The art of storytelling is a core PR competency. Storylines need to be believable and objective while communicating your brand's strengths and value proposition.

Industry Resources

Business leadership can be a lonely profession, especially when you're leading a drawing materials and supplies business. Most leaders are oblivious to the fact that the marketplace shows no favoritism - for every marketing challenge your business faces, there are hundreds of other businesses and leaders struggling to solve the same problem. The best resources are usually the ones that leverage industry-specific experience and the input of proven veterans.
