Marketing Tips

 

Marketing a Personal Services Business

A profitable personal services 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 personal services business cut off from the marketplace.

As a business owner, you probably already have a firm grasp of basic marketing concepts. But as an innovative business leader, you need to follow the strategies that other personal services businesses utilize in the marketplace.

Marketing Collateral

Every piece of collateral your personal services business creates is a tangible reflection of your brand distinctive and core values. You'll also want to make sure you're making the most effective use of your marketing collateral by getting it into the hands of the right people. For direct mail campaigns, premium mailing lists from established vendors can protect the value of your investment. 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 personal services business's marketing collateral will be wasted.

Geolocational Marketing

Smartphones have added a new wrinkle to small business marketing. With little or no effort, users can transform their mobile device into a highly functional tool for location and navigation. Since you're a personal services business marketing professional, smartphone geolocation opens the door to new opportunities in brand and product promotion. Exploiting geolocational capabilities requires sophisticated tools and marketing strategies. There are many ways to influence consumers through mobile GPS. However, in its simplest form, geolocational marketing enables consumers to identify a personal services business in their immediate area.

Staffing Expertise

Right out of the gate, you are going to have to make an informed decision about who will be responsible for marketing your product offerings and your brand. In practice, a large number of business owners simply assume the role of marketer-in-chief, squeezing even more responsibilities into their already packed schedules. As a way to improve performance and time management, owners of personal services businesses outsource marketing to a professional firm. A high quality marketing firm can deliver a much better ROI than internal stakeholders who aren't primarily focused on marketing functions.
