Marketing a Notions Wholesale and Manufacturers Business

There is little room for error in marketing a notions wholesale and manufacturers business in today's economy. Fortunately, we have the information you need to stay ahead of the curve and outperform the rest of the field.

The marketing model for a notions wholesale and manufacturers business has historically adapted to changes in consumer buying patterns and the market itself.

Top performers habitually integrate sound marketing concepts with market demands.

Promotional Calendars

Sloppy marketing programs have no place in growing notions wholesale and manufacturers businesses. Promotional or marketing calendars coordinate the execution of your strategy and result in a more efficient use of both internal and external resources. Many list vendors appreciate promotional calendars because they are useful for timing the delivery of the resources your business needs to meet strategic objectives.

Loss Leaders

The majority of notions wholesale and manufacturers 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 notions wholesale and manufacturers businesses, this approach is most advantageous when it is coupled with a promotion for complementary products or services that are offered at full pricing. Whenever possible, piggyback a loss leader approach with the purchase of bulk merchandise that can be bought at a discount.

Marketing Expertise

A lack of personal marketing experience is not an excuse for moving forward without the support of a promotional knowledge base. Entrepreneurs and leaders of notions wholesale and manufacturers businesses are usually hesitant to engage in high-risk marketing. Since inexperience raises the risk level, the quality of the marketer is just as important as the quality of the message. Although a learning-by-doing approach is typical in this industry, we advise young marketers to seek the input of experienced professionals before committing time and resources to untested marketing concepts.
