Marketing Tips

 

Marketing a Temporary Housing Business

Small and medium size temporary housing businesses can compete and even outperform larger competitors. All it takes is the right marketing plan.

In the current economic climate, one thing separates thriving temporary housing businesses from the rest of the pack.

Top performers habitually integrate sound marketing concepts with market demands.

Price Matching

Don't underestimate the importance of competitive pricing in this industry. Even though you've worked hard to create a unique value proposition, cost concerns are serious issues for buyers. The principle is simple: Since pricing is a primary factor in product selection, your business agrees to match advertised competitor pricing. Without price matching, if they can locate lower pricing from a competing temporary housing business, potential clients will abandon your brand in droves. So whether you like it or not, pricing is a necessary element of your overall marketing strategy. If your business isn't prepared to match standard price points, you'll need to adjust your business model and pricing structure to accommodate the rates that are being charged by other temporary housing businesses in your area.

Hiring A Marketing Firm

Eventually nearly all temporary housing business owners consider outsourcing their promotional and advertising functions to a professional marketing firm. Unless you have a marketing background, you won't be able to touch the ROI you'll receive from a professional firm. Once you decide to hire a professional marketing firm for your temporary housing business, experience should trump other considerations. Marketing firms that lack industry experience are sometimes unfamiliar with competitive marketing channels and may not understand the value propositions that dominate industry messaging.

Marketing Ethics

Ethically challenged marketers are a dime a dozen in today's economy. Industry-leading temporary housing businesses avoid marketing tactics that exploit their customers. Ethics are especially important in direct marketing. By relying on trusted list provider, you can ensure that your lists are accurate and are consistent with standard industry protocols.
