Marketing Advice

 

Marketing a Sales Training Business

The key to success in marketing a sales training business is to combine time-tested marketing techniques with the most cutting edge strategies in today's marketplace.

Novice marketers are typically unprepared for the challenge of promoting brands and products in the competitive arena.

Concerned about customer loyalty? Producing high quality products isn't enough to lure customers back to your business. With cost concerns becoming more important to buyers, value messaging is rising to the fore as a strategic marketing priority.

Price Matching

Don't underestimate the importance of competitive pricing in this industry. Even though you've worked hard to create a unique value proposition, cost concerns are serious issues for buyers. The principle is simple: Since pricing is a primary factor in product selection, your business agrees to match advertised competitor pricing. Without price matching, if they can locate lower pricing from a competing sales training business, buyers will jump on it. Today's consumers are educated and informed. They use social media and other tools to identify the best pricing, making it imperative for small business to consider the value of a well-publicized price matching strategy.

Improve Your Business Sign

Effective signage gives your brand constant exposure in its geographic market. Even though sales training businesses come in all shapes and sizes, sign content should focus on some common industry themes in addition to the details of your business. Visibility, branding elements and other considerations are all factors in the design and size of your operation's business signage.

Given the fact that signage in sales training businesses has unique characteristics, avoid glossing it over as an afterthought. Talk with somebody who knows a lot about business signage advice and get their input before you create new business signs.

Cost Tracking

Are you struggling to contain costs? That's familiar theme among entrepreneurs who lead a sales training business. When businesses buy mailing lists, they expect a return for their investment. Unfortunately, they don't always get it. More often than not, you'll get a better ROI from highly rated list providers than you will from cheaper alternatives. 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.
