Marketing Tips

 

Marketing a Sound Effects Business

It's becoming more and more difficult for sound effects businesses to rise above the clamor of the marketplace. Innovative marketing strategies may be your best bet for out-promoting -- and outperforming -- the competition.

For every sound effects business winner, there many more sound effects businesses struggling to survive.

For industry insiders, it's becoming apparent that marketing ability is just as important as the quality of the deliverables you produce. The good news is that good marketing is achievable by any sound effects business willing to adapt its strategy to the demands of the marketplace.

Product Knowledge

Product knowledge is a fundamental requirement for marketing a sound effects business. Small product details translate into key value propositions which are critical for distinguishing a sound effects business from the rest of the field. If you can't articulate your products' unique characteristics, your messaging - and revenue stream - will suffer.

Social Media Monitoring

The use of social media as a marketing tool is the latest wave to overtake the small business community. Combined with a functional company website, social media attracts new customers and converts them to brand advocates. Social media can quickly go negative, turning brand advocacy into "badvocacy", a scenario in which consumers and users create content deriding your company and your products. All sound effects businesses are especially vulnerable to negative exposure through social media. To counter negative social media, you'll need to monitor your brand's online presence and enter the conversation, redirecting negative discussions toward more positive topics.

Cost Tracking

The economy is a constant concern for people who own a sound effects business. You can't afford to waste money on inferior marketing resources. Since every dollar counts, it pays to buy mailing lists from trusted vendors. Companies that rely on accurate mailing lists reduce time spent chasing down stale leads.

In addition to purchasing first-rate mailing lists, we advise our business partners to carefully track the costs and returns for each of their marketing channels. If a specific marketing channel fails to meet your expectations, consult with a professional marketing firm about how to make the channel more productive or eliminate it from your marketing mix.
