Marketing Tips

 

Marketing a Nurses Business

It's becoming more and more difficult for nurses businesses to rise above the clamor of the marketplace. Innovative marketing strategies may be your best bet for out-promoting -- and outperforming -- the competition.

Small-mindedness has no place in great marketing. In fact, a strong marketing strategy can give a small business high visibility in the marketplace.

Strategic marketing tactics can help small nurses businesses scale their visibility with consumers. Though small organizations may not have the marketing budgets of large corporations, the consistent delivery of targeted messaging has a cumulative effect on the market's consciousness.

Staffing Expertise

An effective marketing strategy meticulously delegates tasks to capable stakeholders. For many business owners, in-house staffing is attractive because it can (theoretically) be performed by current employees and can give the owner more control over the process. As a way to improve performance and time management, owners of nurses businesses enlist the assistance of external marketing professionals. In addition to delivering a better overall outcome, marketing firms bring an objective perspective to your strategy and key messaging.

Loss Leaders

The majority of nurses businesses 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. When used in nurses businesses, this approach is most advantageous when it is coupled with a promotion for complementary products or services that are offered at full pricing. With adequate preparation, a loss leader promotion can be publicized through all of your company's marketing channels, including the company website.

Public Relations Strategies

Public relations is more subtle, but no less powerful than a full-blown marketing push. If you want to send unrestricted marketing messages to your audience, buy a mailing list and perform a direct mail campaign. But if your strategy calls for sophistication, media buy-in and thought leadership, hire a PR consultant. The key to effective PR is to use nuanced messaging to attract the attention of reporters and media representatives. If reporters smell promotional content, they will back off from the story or create their own narrative.
