Marketing Tips


Marketing a Valves and Fittings Repair Business

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

The struggle to find the right marketing mix is never-ending in a profit-oriented small business. However, great marketing strategies share a common characteristic.

In some businesses, marketing takes a back seat to sales and operations. That's a mistake because without marketing, your brand messages aren't being heard. The good news is that good marketing is achievable by any valves and fittings repair business with a strong value proposition and a desire to achieve a visible market presence.

Why Branding Matters

Branding isn't just a marketing buzzword. It's a core concept for businesses trying to entrench themselves in consumer consciousness. Any and every valves and fittings repair business has brand characteristics. Some brands struggle to achieve recognition with consumers while others seem to be quickly embraced by the marketplace. By investing in brand awareness and positioning, you increase the trust factor and make it easier for consumers to choose your business over less-known competitors. In certain situations, branding can be used to establish dominance in specific product categories or service areas.


Every marketing tactic you use has to deliver results. You can't afford to waste money on ineffective tactics for your valves and fittings repair business.

Professional mailing lists improve ROI even further. Vendors can filter your lists to likely buyers, reducing mailing costs and increasing the impact of your direct mail campaigns.

Give Word of Mouth Marketing a Try

Industry-leading valves and fittings repair businesses 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.
