Marketing Tips

 

Marketing a Tank Truck Transportation Business

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

Young business owners are often surprised to learn that marketing isn't as intuitive as they thought it would be.

The marketplace is constantly shifting to accommodate consumer demand and that means businesses need to adapt their marketing requirements accordingly. The consistent application of solid marketing principles is one of the few business requirements that has stayed the same.

Contests

You've seen the contest concept in action, even if it wasn't used in a tank truck transportation business. By design, contests stir up interest at a time when your business needs to be seen in the marketplace. But contests aren't all fun and games. Poorly run contests can open your business up to claims of impropriety and even legal action. As a result tank truck transportation businesses invest time and resources to create contests they can count on to achieve desired outcomes.

Multichannel Marketing Strategies

Are you up to speed on the multichannel marketing concept?. 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.

In today's marketplace, it simply isn't possible for tank truck transportation businesses that funnel the bulk of their resources toward a single marketing channel to create an acceptable market footprint. So when you create your marketing strategy, you'll need to consider including print ads, flyers, and even online marketing tactics in the mix. If direct mail is an area that needs to be added to your mix, professional mailing lists from third-party providers are a no-brainer. We recommend contacting a few select list vendors to learn how you can intelligently incorporate mailing lists into a more diverse marketing strategy.

Generating Buzz

All business owners want to generate buzz about their products, services, and brand. Whether you call it viral marketing or word-of-mouth advertising, a lot of ground can be gained by encouraging positive conversations about your company. For a tank truck transportation business, buzz is a critical consideration in the marketing mix. Businesses that target brand discussions need to be active partners in dialogue. With minimal effort, you can instigate conversations through social media and other communication vehicles favored by today's consumers.
