Marketing Tips

 

Marketing a Security Systems Wholesale and Manufacturers Business

You have to be light on your feet to stay ahead of the curve these days, especially when you're promoting a security systems wholesale and manufacturers business. We have the information you need to create a nimble, yet effective marketing strategy for your business.

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

But by creating a strong marketing strategy, you undergird your connection to your base. Great marketing is good business -- and it begins by integrating a handful of proven marketing concepts into your security systems wholesale and manufacturers business's business model.

Public Relations Strategies

Marketing and public relations are two distinct promotional disciplines. While marketing flows blatant advertising messages to audiences, PR takes a more educational and informative approach. If you want to send unrestricted marketing messages to your audience, buy a mailing list and perform a direct mail campaign. But if your strategy calls for sophistication, media buy-in and thought leadership, hire a PR consultant. Since PR leverages media outlets, it may cost nothing to acquire media placements that feature interesting storylines about your products and brand. The trick is learning how to pitch storylines to media professionals without sounding too promotional or sales-oriented.

Directories

Directories are a common tool for finding a security systems wholesale and manufacturers business. When all of your competitors are listed in a directory, you have no choice in the matter. To keep pace, competitive businesses must include the same directories in their plans for marketing security systems wholesale and manufacturers businesses in a region or territory. Premium directories may or may not deliver the ROI you expect to receive from paid marketing vehicles. 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. Some directories may also let you list more than your name and contact information, so be sure to ask whether your listing can include a logo and other information about your business.

Competitive Awareness

Competitive awareness is the starting point for creativity in marketing. We appreciate innovative tactics. But when innovation causes you to abandon message streams that are trafficked by similar security systems wholesale and manufacturers businesses, there's a good chance that you're missing something. At a minimum, we recommend seeking a third-party perspective before you adopt any innovations that dramatically alter your marketing model.
