Still looking for a way to effectively market your musicians business? Although there is no single way that's right to market in this industry, there are a lot of wrong ways.
Customer loyalty isn't what it used to be. Cash is king in today's marketplace, so your marketing plan needs to focus on value messages.
Every piece of collateral your musicians business creates is a tangible reflection of your brand distinctive and core values. To squeeze the most impact from your collateral, it needs to be targeted toward its recipients. Delivered to the wrong person, a valuable piece of collateral will collect dust. Collateral distributed through direct mail channels realizes its highest return when it is paired with an updated mailing list from a top mailing list vendor. It doesn't make sense to invest time and creativity in marketing collateral only to drop the ball on distribution. Without proper attention to distribution details, your musicians business's brochures, direct mail letters and other content has no value.
Lone rangers don't survive long in a musicians business. An awareness of industry resources can mitigate the isolation of ownership and result in a more stable (and more productive) leadership experience. The best resources are usually the ones that leverage industry-specific experience and the input of proven veterans.
If you haven't done so already, the first step in marketing your musicians business is also the anchor point for your technological strategy: A company website. A shoddy, thrown-together website is a net loss for your organization. To compete online, your website has to contain features and design elements that encourage visitors to drill deeper and incorporate the site into their online routines. Conversion paths are also important. With the proper design, your site can walk new visitors through a series of decisions that culminate with either an online sale, a phone order, a personal visit or a request for more information.
