Novice marketers are typically unprepared for the challenge of promoting brands and products in the competitive arena.
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 lie detection service's planning process.
Hiring A Marketing Firm
Many lie detection service owners consider outsourcing their promotional and advertising functions to a professional marketing firm. Unless you have a marketing background, you won't be able to touch the ROI you'll receive from a professional firm. Does a marketing firm cost money? Sure, but not as much as you may think. When it's time to look for a marketing firm to represent your lie detection service, experience should trump other considerations. Marketing firms that lack industry experience are sometimes unfamiliar with competitive marketing channels and may not understand the value propositions that dominate industry messaging.
Multichannel Marketing Strategies
Are you up to speed on the multichannel marketing concept?. Today's consumers engage with brands in diverse ways. That means brands need to demonstrate similar diversity in the channels they employ to connect with customers.
In today's marketplace, it simply isn't possible for lie detection services that funnel the bulk of their resources toward a single marketing channel to maintain a noticeable presence in the marketplace. In practice, multichannel means embracing a mixture of online and offline message pipelines, based on the places your customers go for information. If direct mail is part of your marketing approach, consider buying updated and sortable mailing lists from a reliable third-party list providers.
Smart lie detection services understand that more customers will walk through the door if a few products are priced at less than full retail value. Moreover, a loss leader marketing strategy can compensate for dead periods when customers tend to making purchases. A classic mistake of loss leader marketing is to create pricing without researching the competition. In a worse case scenario, you could be counting on pricing that is higher than your competitors. For the majority of lie detection services, 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.
