We recognize that the best graphite business entrepreneurs are skilled marketers. But what does it take to become a skilled marketer in this market sector?
With a little luck and lot of hard work, any graphite business can achieve greater marketing dominance through strategic marketing and robust value messaging
Expand Your Advertising Options
Advertising options come and go. The marketing channel that was hot last year may no longer be effective and has been replaced by yet another can't miss marketing alternative. But for graphite businesses, it is mission critical to identify the advertising vehicles that are most likely to meet the specific marketing goals your business is facing right now. Over the past several years, graphite businesses get solid marketing results from online channels capable of streaming high value content to a large, yet targeted customer base. In general, if your competitors know more about promoting their business online than you, you may lose market share.
Measurement & Evaluation
Performance is the ultimate measure of quality. You can improve the quality of your B2B and B2C efforts by considering professional mailing lists provided by established vendors. That's just one of the ways graphite businesses can automatically improve marketing ROI. But on the whole, measurement and evaluation are two of the most powerful weapons in your ROI arsenal. Measurement and evaluation mechanisms have value for any number of reasons, including the ability to shift your resources toward the marketing channels that are delivering the greatest returns. Given the importance of measurement and evaluation, graphite businesses often choose to consult with professional marketers for assessment tools and strategic insights.
Directories are a common tool for finding a graphite business. 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 graphite businesses in a region or territory. 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.
