Industry Specific Marketing Advice
Marketing a Gold and Foil Stamping Business
A profitable gold and foil stamping 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.
If you are a business leader who sees marketing as a path to give your gold and foil stamping business a larger market presence you're not alone.
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 gold and foil stamping business's business model.
In an entertainment on-demand universe, broadcast TV and radio have been the big losers. However, it would be a mistake to discount broadcast advertising entirely. Many gold and foil stamping businesses continue to find ways to attract audiences to their brand through broadcast media. Best practices for the use of broadcast advertising require businesses to evaluate their target audience's listening or viewing patterns and then tailor their media purchases to specific media outlets rather than blanketing the geography with brand messaging. When marketing gold and foil stamping businesses, the target audience is almost always local or regional. For broader reach, you'll likely need to look beyond broadcast venues and explore other online and offline marketing vehicles.
The economy is a constant concern for people who own a gold and foil stamping business. You can't afford to waste money on inferior marketing resources. Since every dollar counts, it pays to buy mailing lists from trusted vendors. Good mailing lists are money in the bank; they deliver leads, revenue and most importantly, new customers.
In addition to purchasing first-rate mailing lists, we advise our business partners to carefully track the costs and returns for each of their marketing channels. If a specific marketing channel fails to meet your expectations, consult with a professional marketing firm about how to make the channel more productive or eliminate it from your marketing mix.
Do you have a new marketing idea that will transform your industry? Don't be so sure - at least not until you have explored what the competition is doing. Innovation is desirable in marketing, but if your company doesn't maintain a presence in the channels that are being used by other gold and foil stamping businesses, there's a good chance that you're missing something. Although you might be convinced that a new strategy will give your company an edge, it's reassuring to consult with a professional marketer before you go too far down the road.
