Marketing a Home Office Equipment and Services Business

At Gaebler, we've seen what great marketing can do for a small business. But if you own a home office equipment and services business, exceptional marketing may well be the determining factor in your long-term survival and success.

As a business owner, it's imperative to understand that your financial metrics are inextricably linked to your marketing capacity.

In some businesses, marketing takes a back seat to sales and operations. That's a mistake because without marketing, your brand messages aren't being heard. On the upside, great marketing is a real possibility for a home office equipment and services business willing to adapt its strategy to the demands of the marketplace.

Marketing Expertise

Whether you're a marketing newbie or a seasoned veteran, you need to make a deliberate effort to educate yourself about innovative marketing principles. Entrepreneurs and leaders of home office equipment and services businesses need to make every dollar count, especially when it comes to their marketing budgets. Although a learning-by-doing approach is typical in this industry, we advise young marketers to seek the input of experienced professionals before committing time and resources to untested marketing concepts.

Building A Community Around Your Brand

Does your business have a social media presence? If not, you may be falling behind the rest of the marketplace. Whether they realize it or not home office equipment and services businesses need to do a better job connecting with their customers. Direct mail campaigns featuring mailing lists from a reliable list partner can jumpstart a social media drive by expanding your customer base and alerting them to your social media presence.

Social Media Monitoring

The use of social media as a marketing tool is the latest wave to overtake the small business community. Combined with a functional company website, social media attracts new customers and converts them to brand advocates. Even though the potential for social media to generate positive conversations about your product is good, the potential for it to create negative, online word-of-mouth is a concern that must be taken seriously. Most home office equipment and services businesses are especially vulnerable to negative exposure through social media. To counter negative social media, you'll need to monitor your brand's online presence and enter the conversation, redirecting negative discussions toward more positive topics.
