Marketing Tactics for Niche Markets

Marketing a Landscape Curbing Business

The value and earning capacity of a landscape curbing business largely depends on the quality of its marketing efforts. But great marketing takes a lot more than hanging a shingle and hoping for the best.

If you are a business leader who sees marketing as a path to give your landscape curbing business an edge over the competition you're not alone.

In general, good business owners make good marketers. However, the most visible brands are always on the lookout for the marketing tactics competitive landscape curbing businesses utilize in the marketplace.

Loss Leaders

The majority of landscape curbing 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. For the majority of landscape curbing 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.

Strategic Partnerships

Strategic partnerships offer landscape curbing businesses a new approach to the marketplace, rooted in the achievement of shared objectives. Think about it: even on your best day, your company has the ability to influence a certain percentage of potential customers. But when you partner with a complementary supplier to perform a joint marketing campaign, you multiply your customer base and generate a more powerful market presence.

Mailings

It makes sense for landscape curbing businesses to participate in direct marketing. Direct mail has the advantage of delivering targeted messaging to qualified contacts within your company's market segment. Third-party providers have a reputation for generating accurate mailing lists that can be sorted to accommodate niches and subsections of the market. By investing in premium mailing lists for direct mail, email, and telemarketing campaigns, you gain the assurance that your lists are always accurate and up-to-date.
