Business Marketing Advice

Marketing a RV and Camper Storage Business

The value and earning capacity of a RV and camper storage business largely depends on the quality of its marketing efforts. But great marketing takes a lot more than hanging a shingle and hoping for the best.

Young business owners are often surprised to learn that marketing isn't as intuitive as they thought it would be.

In some businesses, marketing takes a back seat to sales and operations. That's a mistake because without marketing, your brand messages aren't being heard. The good news is that good marketing is achievable by any RV and camper storage business owner who is willing to learn what it takes to promote their business.

Generating Buzz

Good buzz is a mythical creature in marketing circles. Although it's rumored to exist, it's hard to nail down. There are multiple ways owners can tout the benefits of their product offerings, but the most effective promotions are personal recommendations or word of mouth advertising. For a RV and camper storage business, it's worthwhile to invest in strategies to promote brand conversations. To encourage marketplace conversations, you'll need to equip consumers with the tools they need to create meaningful brand dialogues. With minimal effort, you can instigate conversations through social media and other communication vehicles favored by today's consumers.

Marketing Collateral

Every piece of collateral your RV and camper storage business creates is a tangible reflection of your brand distinctive and core values. Some pieces of collateral can be customized for recipients, while others serve a more generic purpose. Either way, you have a stake in making sure it gets into the right hands. For direct mail campaigns, premium mailing lists from established vendors can protect the value of your investment. If you're like most business owners, you invest substantial resources in the creation of quality collateral. If you don't invest similar resources in mailing lists and other distribution channels, your RV and camper storage business's investment in collateral will be pointless.

Newsletters

Despite the unrelenting demands of generating content on a monthly or quarterly basis, a company newsletter has promising potential as a marketing device. Unlike flyers and other advertising mediums, newsletters have an informational focus. In fact, the best newsletters encourage customers to take the next step without ever asking for a sale. These days, RV and camper storage businesses rely on newsletters as cornerstones of a deliberate PR and marketing strategy, combining print and online distribution channels.
