A single characteristic divides today's best fishing stations businesses from companies at the bottom of the food chain.
Purpose in marketing is the key to success in this space. From our vantage point, it's clear that profitable fishing stations businesses are intentional about devising and executing winning marketing strategies. The inclusion of innovative tactics and techniques is important, but the consistent application of sound marketing principles may be the most important factor in raising your brand's visibility with buyers.
Do We Really Need A Logo?
Having a strong logo for a fishing stations business is a big deal. We live in a visual world and logos are tangible expressions of your organization's key messages. Although it's possible to create your own logo, most internally generated logos lack polish and punch. Even if your logo concept sounds simplistic, we recommend contracting your logo to a professional marketing and design firm because it's likely that the logo will be the face of your company for years to come.
Public Relations Strategies
If marketing is a stock car racing full throttle toward a consumer audience, PR is a vintage Cadillac teasing consumers and inviting them to take a closer look. For example, if you buy a premium mailing list and use it to conduct a direct mail campaign, that's marketing. On the other hand, if the Sunday paper runs a story about your fishing stations business, that's PR. The key to effective PR is to use nuanced messaging to attract the attention of reporters and media representatives. If reporters smell promotional content, they will back off from the story or create their own narrative.
The majority of fishing stations businesses understand that more customers will walk through the door if a few products are priced at less than full retail value. Moreover, a loss leader marketing strategy can compensate for dead periods when customers tend to making purchases. But to be effective, loss leader marketing requires planning, especially in product selection and price points. For fishing stations businesses, the real benefits of loss leaders emerge through the careful marketing of other products, usually offered at a much higher margin. Also, it's important to carefully consider the quantity of discounted products you are willing to offer at the loss leader price since stockpiling or a high volume of loss leader sales can negate the revenue benefits of this strategy.
