Marketing Tips

 

Marketing a Hydraulic Hoses and Fittings Business

It's becoming more and more difficult for hydraulic hoses and fittings businesses to rise above the clamor of the marketplace. Innovative marketing strategies may be your best bet for out-promoting -- and outperforming -- the competition.

Think tired marketing collateral is all you need to succeed in today's marketplace? Think again!

A lack of marketing experience can sometimes be overcome through persistence and innovation, two key features of hydraulic hoses and fittings business marketing success.

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 hydraulic hoses and fittings businesses need to do a better job connecting with their customers. To establish a solid community base, you may want to begin with a direct mail campaign using mailing lists obtained through top-end list providers. Using these lists, you can perform a direct mail initiative to invite prospects to participate in online brand community mechanisms.

Loss Leaders

The majority of hydraulic hoses and fittings businesses frequently sell specific products at ridiculously low margins to boost traffic and new customer acquisition. Moreover, a loss leader marketing strategy can compensate for dead periods when customers tend to making purchases. But to be effective, loss leader marketing requires planning, especially in product selection and price points. When used in hydraulic hoses and fittings businesses, the real benefits of loss leaders emerge through the careful marketing of other products, usually offered at a much higher margin. Whenever possible, piggyback a loss leader approach with the purchase of bulk merchandise that can be bought at a discount.

When It's Time to Rebrand

Rebranding can be the cornerstone of a successful marketing strategy. But unfortunately, many business owners choose to rebrand simply because they aren't sure what else to do. That's not how rebranding works. Instead, rebranding should be performed for the right reasons. For a hydraulic hoses and fittings business, owners are often inspired to rebrand after analysis has demonstrated that the current brand is losing its impact in the marketplace. 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.
