Marketing Tips

 

Marketing a Student Housing and Services Business

Marketing a student housing and services business isn't as simple as it seems. To get noticed, you'll need to invest time, energy, and resources in an innovative marketing plan.

Think tired marketing collateral is all you need to succeed in today's marketplace? Think again!

Marketing increases the brand footprint of a student housing and services business using a carefully crafted mix of techniques and tactics.

Price Matching

In a difficult economy, consumers expect businesses to engage in a certain amount of price matching. Without price matching, if they can locate lower pricing from a competing student housing and services business, potential clients will abandon your brand in droves. 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.

Multichannel Marketing Strategies

There are a lot of benefits to taking a multichannel approach to marketing. Today's consumers engage with brands in diverse ways. That means brands need to demonstrate similar diversity in the channels they employ to connect with customers.

A single channel approach just isn't enough for a student housing and services business to create an acceptable market footprint. For many companies, multichannel can mean completely revamping their marketing strategy to include a broader mix of media and information venues. The acquisition of reliable mailing lists from proven providers can expedite the transition, but ultimately your efforts to go multichannel may require the assistance of a marketing professional.

Marketing Expertise

A lack of personal marketing experience is not an excuse for moving forward without the support of a promotional knowledge base. Entrepreneurs and leaders of student housing and services businesses need to make every dollar count, especially when it comes to their marketing budgets. If you don't have a marketing background, it's critical to either educate yourself about basic marketing principles or consult with a professional marketing firm. We advise our business partners to seriously consider outsourcing their promotional requirements because professional marketers tend to have their fingers on the pulse of the marketplace.
