Marketing Advice

 

Marketing a Firewood Business

You have to be light on your feet to stay ahead of the curve these days, especially when you're promoting a firewood business. We have the information you need to create a nimble, yet effective marketing strategy for your business.

For a firewood business, a great business model doesn't guarantee solid revenues.

A robust marketing plan cements your company's relationships with customers. With that in mind, it's important to leverage marketing as a path toward better customer engagement in your firewood business's business model.

Media Monitoring

Some marketing initiatives lend themselves to simple measurement while others are more challenging. Direct mail can be evaluated by tallying the cost of inputs (e.g. a premium mailing list, printing, postage, etc.) and measuring the number of customer responses you receive from the campaign. But how do you go about measuring your brand's marketing footprint in geographic and demographic sectors? Fortunately, media monitoring has the ability to give your firewood business a sense of market presence and other variables that are difficult to quantify. Even more importantly, media monitoring can alert you to negative commentary early, giving you the opportunity to counter negative mentions with more accurate and more positive messaging.

When It's Time to Rebrand

There are many reasons why it might be time to begin a rebranding initiative - but a lack of alternative tactics is not one of them. Rebranding is an intentional marketing technique designed to deliver long term results. For a firewood business, owners are often inspired to rebrand after analysis has demonstrated that the current brand is losing its impact in the marketplace. If rebranding is unavoidable, it's important to update the brand while maintaining the elements that make it recognizable to consumers.

Directories

Directories are a common tool for finding a firewood business. Yellow pages, industry listings, online databases, and other directory options are routinely used as vehicles for promoting firewood businesses to market segments. Premium directories may or may not deliver the ROI you expect to receive from paid marketing vehicles. Unless all of your major competitors are listed in a paid directory, it may be better to take a pass and redirect your funds toward other advertising venues. Some directories may also let you list more than your name and contact information, so be sure to ask whether your listing can include a logo and other information about your business.
