Marketing Tips

 

Marketing a Non-Prescription Medicines Business

A profitable non-prescription medicines business is about more than supply and demand. It's about designing ways to entice new customers to engage with your products and to encourage existing customers to increase the frequency of their purchases.

Marketing is the bridge between an organization and its customer base. Build your bridge poorly and you'll quickly find your non-prescription medicines business cut off from the marketplace.

What to know the characteristics that distinguish leading non-prescription medicines businesses from average companies? It's strong messaging. And if your marketing vehicles aren't crystal clear, you could become a casualty of the marketplace.

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. Rebranding is an intentional marketing technique designed to deliver long term results. For a non-prescription medicines 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.

Viral Marketing

There isn't a simple formula for launching a viral marketing campaign. By including viral elements in a campaign for a non-prescription medicines business, you ultimately have to cross your fingers and hope for the best. But despite the risk, viral marketers can influence the likelihood of success. One strategy is to launch a viral marketing initiative by inviting a select group of customers to test your products and post their experiences on their social networking pages.

Mailings

It makes sense for non-prescription medicines businesses to participate in direct marketing. Unlike other marketing tactics, direct mail has the potential for exceptional ROI, as long as the messaging is strong and your mailing list is targeted toward likely customers. At Gaebler, we advise small and medium-sized businesses to purchase mailing lists from reliable providers. Despite the added upfront expense, premium mailing lists are a smart investment if for no other reason than their ability to generate higher conversion rates.
