Marketing Tips

 

Marketing a Fiber Barrels and Drums Business

Promotional tactics for fiber barrels and drums 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.

A single characteristic divides today's best fiber barrels and drums businesses from the rest of the pack.

The marketplace is constantly shifting to accommodate consumer demand and that means businesses need to adapt their marketing requirements accordingly. The consistent application of solid marketing principles is one of the few business requirements that has stayed the same.

Improving Customer Loyalty

Savvy entrepreneurs target customer loyalty as a cornerstone of strategic planning. In fiber barrels and drums businesses, premium mailing lists from list providers can help expand your customer base. However, customer acquisition will only get you so far. To achieve revenue growth, you'll need to combine customer acquisition channels with strategies and mechanisms designed to transform new customers into followers and hopefully, brand advocates.

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. Social media can quickly go negative, turning brand advocacy into "badvocacy", a scenario in which consumers and users create content deriding your company and your products. All fiber barrels and drums 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.

Hiring A Marketing Firm

Many fiber barrels and drums business owners consider outsourcing their promotional and advertising functions to a professional marketing firm. Professional marketers are usually on the bleeding edge of the industry and boast better returns for the investment than internal marketing units. Once you decide to hire a professional marketing firm for your fiber barrels and drums business, the first thing to look for is marketing experience. Marketing firms that lack industry experience are sometimes unfamiliar with competitive marketing channels and may not understand the value propositions that dominate industry messaging.
