Marketing a Hazardous Waste Transport Business

There is little room for error in marketing a hazardous waste transport business in today's economy. Fortunately, we have the information you need to stay ahead of the curve and outperform the rest of the field.

Marketing is much more than classified ads, business cards, and brochures.

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 hazardous waste transport business's planning process.

Social Media Monitoring

Brand advocacy is a buzzword in marketing circles. What does it mean? Using consumer-oriented platforms to encourage customers to create user-generated content about your products and company, typically through social media. Social media can quickly go negative, turning brand advocacy into "badvocacy", a scenario in which consumers and users create content deriding your company and your products. All hazardous waste transport businesses are especially vulnerable to negative exposure through social media. If your brand is taking a hit from negative mentions, it's important to generate enough positive content to push negative mentions down in search rankings. The more positive mentions that exist, the more difficult it is for negative comments (generated through social media) to gain traction on search engines like Google and Yahoo.

When It's Time to Rebrand

There are many reasons why it might be time to begin a rebranding initiative - but a lack of alternative tactics is not one of them. Rebranding is an intentional marketing technique designed to deliver long term results. In a hazardous waste transport business, brands are tied to specific stages in the life of a business. If your company is expanding, you will inevitably outgrow your brand and it will be time to prepare for a comprehensive rebranding effort. Unless you are confident that you possess the skills necessary to rebrand your business, we advise consulting with a professional marketing firm before you introduce a new brand to your customers.

Cost Tracking

Cost is an issue in marketing a hazardous waste transport 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.

But mailing lists aren't the only way you can reduce costs. Most accounting software solutions have features that allow you to track costs in multiple expense categories and receive alerts when expenses suddenly swing outside of normal parameters.
