Marketing a Public Libraries Business

A profitable public libraries 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.

We recognize that the best public libraries business entrepreneurs tend to possess solid marketing skills. However, capable marketing is elusive for many leaders in this industry.

These days, most businesses are counting on the fact that their marketing plans will push them ahead of their competitors and deliver the best possible market share. But in a zero-sum economy, there are winners and losers -- and here are some of the things that will help keep your public libraries business in the winners' column.

Why Branding Matters

Think of branding as a consumer shortcut. Since the average consumer doesn't have time to thoroughly evaluate every product that crosses their path, they make buying decisions based on the brands they trust. Any and every public libraries business has brand characteristics. Some brands struggle to achieve recognition with consumers while others seem to be quickly embraced by the marketplace. Companies that incorporate brand positioning into their normal marketing routines gradually accumulate higher brand values and are rewarded by consumers.

ROI

Every marketing tactic you use has to deliver results. Like any other business, ROI is a primary marketing concern in your public libraries business.

Professional mailing lists improve ROI even further. Vendors can filter your lists to likely buyers, reducing mailing costs and increasing the impact of your direct mail campaigns.

Coupons

Although they have traditionally been associated with a handful of industries, coupons are viable resources for public libraries business advertising. Traditionally, coupons have been limited to print ad distributions. These days, coupon programs have expanded to include electronic coupons distributed through social media and redeemed via a mobile device. Many public libraries business operations use coupons to encourage new customers to give their product offerings a try, effectively stealing market share from competitors that have invested in customer loyalty schemes. Coupled with other marketing techniques, a steady stream of legitimate coupon promotions can incentivize periodic customers to increase the frequency of purchases from your company.
