We recognize that the best rope, twines, and cordage business entrepreneurs are adept at promoting their brand and products. Yet in this industry, the characteristics of able marketers aren't always obvious.
Advances in technology and the marketplace itself have made it necessary for businesses to stay on top of the latest trends and strategies. More than ever before, foundational marketing concepts have become the bedrock upon which successful marketing strategies are constructed.
Do We Really Need A Logo?
The question of whether or not to create a logo for a rope, twines, and cordage business is a big deal. In tight markets, logos differentiate one company from the next. More importantly, a good logo can differentiate your value proposition from your competitors. Although it's possible to create your own logo, most internally generated logos lack polish and punch. Even if your logo concept sounds simplistic, we recommend contracting your logo to a professional marketing and design firm because it's likely that the logo will be the face of your company for years to come.
Messaging matters - but only to the degree that it communicates value to cost-conscious consumers. For centuries, entrepreneurs have understood that bundled products reinforce buyers' value concerns while increasing their business's total revenue position. Most rope, twines, and cordage businesses have the ability to bundle multiple products and services into a single offering that customers find appealing. Often, bundling is used to offload excess inventory or to pair a low profit product with one that has a higher markup.
The economy is a constant concern for people who own a rope, twines, and cordage business. For direct mailing campaigns and other strategic initiatives, it's hard to argue with the ROI you receive from updated mailing lists provided by the industry's leading list vendors. Good mailing lists are money in the bank; they deliver leads, revenue and most importantly, new customers.
But mailing lists aren't the only way you can reduce costs. Most accounting software solutions have features that allow you to track costs in multiple expense categories and receive alerts when expenses suddenly swing outside of normal parameters.
