Marketing Tips

 

Marketing a Recycling Services, Equipment, and Supplies Business

The value and earning capacity of a recycling services, equipment, and supplies 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.

It's difficult to pinpoint a single marketing strategy that is capable of turning around a struggling business. However, great marketing strategies share a common characteristic.

In general, good business owners make good marketers. However, the most visible brands are always on the lookout for the marketing tactics competitive recycling services, equipment, and supplies businesses utilize in the marketplace.

Company Website

Technology is changing the way small businesses market their products and brands. The on-ramp for using technology to promote your recycling services, equipment, and supplies business is also the anchor point for your technological strategy: A company website. Although many businesses have a website, a poorly designed and unnavigable website is worse than having no web presence at all. Your site is a representation of your business; it needs to convey the same professional appearance and functionality as you expect from any other sales and marketing asset. When combined with social media marketing, a first-rate website makes it easy for customers to share detailed information about your products with their online communities.

Staffing Expertise

Assigning responsibility for the execution of a marketing strategy can be more difficult than creating it. 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. There are numerous reasons why recycling services, equipment, and supplies 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.

Public Relations Strategies

The beauty of PR is that it can raise awareness of your offerings in a very credible and cost-effective fashion. When recycling services, equipment, and supplies businesses leverage PR, they tell thought-provoking stories about their brand and products. In the process, they establish themselves as thought leaders and encourage the marketplace to give them a second look. The art of storytelling is a core PR competency. Storylines need to be believable and objective while communicating your brand's strengths and value proposition.
