Marketing Advice

 

Marketing a Quarry

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

Still looking for a way to effectively market your quarry? Unfortunately, there is a fine line between capturing buyers' attention and blending into the background.

Winning strategies combine common sense marketing with the constantly evolving demands of the marketplace.

Directories

There are many different kinds of directories in which to list a quarry. Yellow pages, industry listings, online databases, and other directory options are routinely used as vehicles for promoting quarries in a region or territory. Paid directory listings are gaining steam in some sectors. But paid listings don't necessarily translate into better results - many free directories have just as much firepower as premium ones. Do your research and make sure any directory in which you list your business is capable of reaching enough likely customers to make it worth the effort. As consumers demonstrate a preference for online channels, make sure your listing include your company's web address and possibly even information about your social media presence.

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 quarries can't afford to invest large sums of money in untested strategies or first-time marketers. When in doubt, tap into either an internal or external knowledge base to design your company's marketing strategy.

Managing Negative Publicity

Negative publicity is never easy to deal with, especially for quarries. Bad situation inevitably get worse when companies haven't prepared for the possibility of a negative news cycle. PR savvy quarries work with consultants to develop a crisis response plan that can be executed on a moment's notice. Mailing list providers can also provide quick access to accurate mailing lists, an important consideration if your crisis response plan contains a direct mail component.
