Marketing Tips

 

Marketing a Fish Farm

You're heavily invested in the success of your fish farm and failure isn't an option. That means you'll also need to invest yourself in the strategies and techniques it takes to effectively market your brand in the marketplace.

We recognize that the best fish farm entrepreneurs are skilled marketers. But what does it take to become a skilled marketer in this market sector?

These days, most businesses are counting on the fact that their marketing plans will push them ahead of their competitors and deliver the best possible market share. But in a zero-sum economy, there are winners and losers -- and here are some of the things that will help keep your fish farm ahead of the competition.

Marketing Expertise

Whether you're a marketing newbie or a seasoned veteran, you need to make a deliberate effort to educate yourself about innovative marketing principles. Owners of fish farms need to make every dollar count, especially when it comes to their marketing budgets. If you don't have a marketing background, it's critical to either educate yourself about basic marketing principles or consult with a professional marketing firm. We advise our business partners to seriously consider outsourcing their promotional requirements because professional marketers tend to have their fingers on the pulse of the marketplace.

Directories

There are many different kinds of directories in which to list a fish farm. When all of your competitors are listed in a directory, you have no choice in the matter. To keep pace, competitive businesses must include the same directories in their plans for marketing fish farms in a region or territory. Premium directories may or may not deliver the ROI you expect to receive from paid marketing vehicles. Regardless of whether it is a premium or free listing opportunity, every directory needs to be evaluated on its own merits. 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.

Email Campaigns

Today's consumers are extremely tech-savvy. They rely on social media and email to both receive and transmit brand messages. That's why email campaigns are gaining popularity among small and medium-size business owners throughout the industry. For the majority of fish farms, the hardest part of an email campaign is gathering the email addresses of likely customers. 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.
