Marketing Tips

 

Marketing a Flea Market Business

A profitable flea market business is about more than supply and demand. It's about designing ways to entice new customers to engage with your products and to encourage existing customers to increase the frequency of their purchases.

For a flea market business, exceptional product quality is only part of the struggle to meet revenue goals.

Staying on track requires attention to detail and a commitment to foundational marketing principles.

Marketing Ethics

Are ethics important in marketing? You bet! Industry-leading flea market businesses avoid marketing tactics that exploit their customers. If direct mail is part of your marketing mix, you should also make sure your mailing list provider adheres to ethical standards in the collection of contact information. Premier vendors are safe bets since they have established themselves as reputable mailing list providers.

Improve Your Business Sign

Effective signage gives your brand constant exposure in its geographic market. Despite the fact that flea market businesses are very different from each other, signage can be used by any flea market business to communicate the company's value to their customers. Visibility, branding elements and other considerations are all factors in the design and size of your operation's business signage.

Given the fact that signage in flea market businesses is unlike the signage for other types of businesses, avoid glossing it over as an afterthought. Talk to a nearby business sign franchise company or an independent business sign company and see what they recommend.

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 flea market business, you ultimately have to cross your fingers and hope for the best. Although you have little control over whether or not your products go viral, there are things you can do to nurture your brand's viral capacity. 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.
