Marketing Advice By Business Type

Marketing a Skywriting Services Business

At Gaebler, we've seen what great marketing can do for a small business. But if you own a skywriting services business, exceptional marketing may well be the determining factor in your long-term survival and success.

We recognize that the best skywriting services business owners tend to possess solid marketing skills. Yet in this industry, the characteristics of able marketers aren't always obvious.

Simplistic promotional techniques can't penetrate the clutter of the current marketplace. To capture audience attention, you'll need to stay current with the channels they use to receive information and product messages.

Generating Buzz

Never underestimate the value of good buzz with consumers. You've heard it said before: Word of mouth is the best form of promotion for products and brands. In a skywriting services business, meaningful brand conversations have the ability to transform the impact of your marketing efforts. The process begins with developing communication vehicles and mechanisms that invite discussion. With minimal effort, you can instigate conversations through social media and other communication vehicles favored by today's consumers.

Bundling

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 skywriting services 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.

Media Monitoring

Measurement and evaluation are critical considerations for effective PR and marketing plans. For example, if you buy a mailing list and conduct a direct mail campaign, you should have little difficulty measuring the campaign's effectiveness and ROI. But how do you go about measuring your brand's marketing footprint in geographic and demographic sectors? Fortunately, media monitoring has the ability to give your skywriting services business a sense of market presence and other variables that are difficult to quantify. If executed properly, media monitoring can help your brand get ahead of negative messaging and exert greater influence over news cycles.
