Marketing Tips

 

Marketing a Fabric Craft Business

Marketing a fabric craft business isn't as simple as it seems. To get noticed, you'll need to invest time, energy, and resources in an innovative marketing plan.

As a business owner, it's imperative to understand that your financial metrics are inextricably linked to your marketing capacity.

Tenacious messaging and the identification of new delivery channels can be an on ramp to fabric craft business marketing success.

Staffing Expertise

Assigning responsibility for the execution of a marketing strategy can be more difficult than creating it. A dedicated, in-house marketing division is a possibility, but in small businesses, it's more likely that owners or managers will pick up marketing as a secondary job responsibility. That can be problematic because marketing can't afford to be pushed to the backburner. There are numerous reasons why fabric craft businesses enlist the assistance of external marketing professionals. In addition to delivering a better overall outcome, marketing firms bring an objective perspective to your strategy and key messaging.

Viral Marketing

Will Rogers said, "You can lead a horse to water, but you can't make him drink. However, you can put salt in his food." That's kind of how viral marketing works. By including viral elements in a campaign for a fabric craft business, you ultimately have to cross your fingers and hope for the best. But despite the risk, viral marketers can influence the likelihood of success. Social media and other online vehicles can seed a viral marketing campaign, but you'll need to nurture their development through direct customer interaction as well as other techniques.

Measurement & Evaluation

Performance is the ultimate measure of quality. You can improve the quality of your B2B and B2C efforts by considering professional mailing lists provided by established vendors. That's just one of the ways fabric craft businesses can achieve greater returns from their marketing initiatives. However, there are no substitutes for measurement and evaluation mechanisms. A robust measurement and evaluation process should include metrics that can be monitored on a monthly, weekly or even daily basis. Designed to monitor marketing efforts on a campaign-by-campaign basis, these metrics can be used as a baseline for strategic planning. Technology plays a role in marketing measurements, so fabric craft businesses often choose to consult with professional marketers for assessment tools and strategic insights.
