For a gymnasium equipment and supplies dealers business, the line between success and failure is based on more than the execution of core competencies.
Winning strategies combine common sense marketing with the constantly evolving demands of the marketplace.
Messaging matters - but only to the degree that it communicates value to cost-conscious consumers. Businesses that bundle products tap into the market's psyche by creating the perception (real or imagined) of cost-savings. Most gymnasium equipment and supplies dealers businesses have the ability to bundle multiple products and services into a single offering that customers find appealing. Will the profit margins be the same as they would be if you sold the bundled products separately? Probably not. But you'll make up for it by achieving higher sales volumes and net profits.
Competitive awareness is the starting point for creativity in marketing. We appreciate innovative tactics. But when innovation causes you to abandon message streams that are trafficked by similar gymnasium equipment and supplies dealers businesses, there's a good chance that you're missing something. At a minimum, we recommend seeking a third-party perspective before you adopt any innovations that dramatically alter your marketing model.
Some marketing initiatives lend themselves to simple measurement while others are more challenging. Direct mail can be evaluated by tallying the cost of inputs (e.g. a premium mailing list, printing, postage, etc.) and measuring the number of customer responses you receive from the campaign. The difficulty comes when you are tasked with quantifying market presence and brand influence. With the help of marketing professionals, media monitoring can provide up-to-date assessments of the amount of influence your gymnasium equipment and supplies dealers business has in the public sphere. Even more importantly, media monitoring can alert you to negative commentary early, giving you the opportunity to counter negative mentions with more accurate and more positive messaging.
