Marketing a Steeplejacks Business

Marketing a steeplejacks business can be a daunting task for new entrepreneurs. But with consumer demand on the rise, marketing skills are becoming increasingly important for steeplejacks business owners and managers.

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

Customer loyalty isn't what it used to be. These days, customers expect value and nothing communicates value more than a solid marketing plan.

Managing Negative Publicity

Not sure how to handle negative PR? You're not alone. It's a probably faced by many steeplejacks businesses. But the time to address your response to negative publicity is before it happens. If you wait until a crisis hits, it's already too late to control the message. At Gaebler, we advise our business partners to have an updated crisis response plan in place at all times. Mailing list providers can also provide quick access to accurate mailing lists, an important consideration if your crisis response plan contains a direct mail component.

Loss Leaders

The majority of steeplejacks businesses understand that more customers will walk through the door if a few products are priced at less than full retail value. Moreover, a loss leader marketing strategy can compensate for dead periods when customers tend to making purchases. But to be effective, loss leader marketing requires planning, especially in product selection and price points. For the majority of steeplejacks businesses, the real benefits of loss leaders emerge through the careful marketing of other products, usually offered at a much higher margin. Whenever possible, piggyback a loss leader approach with the purchase of bulk merchandise that can be bought at a discount.

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 steeplejacks business, buzz is a critical consideration in the marketing mix. 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.
