Generating Buzz

Good buzz is a mythical creature in marketing circles. Although it's rumored to exist, it's hard to nail down. 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 taxicab service, 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. As you begin to promote brand discussions, you will need to also develop systems for monitoring the things that are being said about your company and using positive mentions to your advantage.

Promotional Calendars

Sloppy marketing programs have no place in growing taxicab services. Instead of offering special promotions on the spur of the moment, we recommend creating a promotional calendar for the fiscal year. Although you can adjust the calendar as needed, advanced planning makes it easier to connect your company's marketing tactics to sales objectives, inventory levels, staffing, and other areas of the business. When used in tandem with a quality mailing list provider, promotional calendars can ensure the continuous execution of direct mail campaigns.

Give Word of Mouth Marketing a Try

Industry-leading taxicab services rely on a certain amount of word of mouth marketing buzz to communicate brand values and product messaging.

Word-of-mouth is unpredictable, but it's not completely out of your control. A skilled marketer can use online and offline marketing tactics to boost consumer discussions about your offerings. Mind you, there's a difference between word of mouth marketing and viral marketing -- if word of mouth marketing is a new concept for you, you might want to hire a marketing consultant.
