Marketing Tips

 

Marketing a Hardwood Mill

Trying to market a hardwood mills business? It's a crowded marketplace, but with dedication and persistence, great marketing can help your business outperform larger competitors.

A single characteristic divides today's best hardwood mills businesses from the rest of the pack.

Top performers habitually integrate sound marketing concepts with market demands.

Marketing Collateral

Every piece of collateral your hardwood mills business creates is a tangible reflection of your brand distinctive and core values. To squeeze the most impact from your collateral, it needs to be targeted toward its recipients. Delivered to the wrong person, a valuable piece of collateral will collect dust. For example, if you're spending good money on a direct mail collateral, it's worthwhile to invest in a premium mailing list from a leading mailing list provider. If you're like most business owners, you invest substantial resources in the creation of quality collateral. If you don't invest similar resources in mailing lists and other distribution channels, your hardwood mills business's brochures, direct mail letters and other content has no value.

Industry Resources

Lone rangers don't survive long in a hardwood mills business. An awareness of industry resources can mitigate the isolation of ownership and result in a more stable (and more productive) leadership experience. The best resources are usually the ones that leverage industry-specific experience and the input of proven veterans.

Leveraging Print Ads

You're probably familiar with many of the ways print advertising has been used to market hardwood mills businesses. Historically, Gutenberg's invention has been used for a broad range of commercial and promotional applications. Online advertising has clear benefits. But that doesn't mean you should stop advertising your hardwood mills business through traditional print ad mediums. These days, the key to effective print advertising is to align the publication with your business goals and ROI requirements.
