Marketing Tips

 

Marketing a Water Meter Inspection and Reading Business

You have to be light on your feet to stay ahead of the curve these days, especially when you're promoting a water meter inspection and reading business. We have the information you need to create a nimble, yet effective marketing strategy for your business.

Marketing is not a siloed business function. It's a cross-organizational discipline with ramifications for your balance sheet and earnings statement.

Customer loyalty isn't what it used to be. Cash is king in today's marketplace, so your marketing plan needs to focus on value messages.

Social Media Monitoring

The use of social media as a marketing tool is the latest wave to overtake the small business community. Combined with a functional company website, social media attracts new customers and converts them to brand advocates. Even though the potential for social media to generate positive conversations about your product is good, the potential for it to create negative, online word-of-mouth is a concern that must be taken seriously. All water meter inspection and reading businesses have too much at stake to ignore derogatory social media mentions. To counter negative social media, you'll need to monitor your brand's online presence and enter the conversation, redirecting negative discussions toward more positive topics.

Marketing Expertise

Don't have a background in marketing? That shouldn't stop you from taking a larger promotional role in your company by educating yourself about today's most effective marketing concepts. Owners of water meter inspection and reading businesses need to make every dollar count, especially when it comes to their marketing budgets. Although a learning-by-doing approach is typical in this industry, we advise young marketers to seek the input of experienced professionals before committing time and resources to untested marketing concepts.

Market Segmentation

In today's environment, it's impossible to market a water meter inspection and reading business to the entire marketplace. Market segmentation has been around for decades and it has enabled many smaller companies to dominate parts of the market, even when they face competition from larger firms.

For segmented mailing lists, we recommend using a proven partner with the experience to assist in the execution of your segmented water meter inspection and reading business marketing strategy.
