Marketing a Waterworks Equipment and Supplies Business

Marketing a waterworks equipment and supplies business can be a daunting task for new entrepreneurs. But with consumer demand on the rise, marketing skills are becoming increasingly important for waterworks equipment and supplies business owners and managers.

In the current economic climate, one thing separates thriving waterworks equipment and supplies businesses from the rest of the pack.

Want to improve your marketing? From our vantage point, it's clear that profitable waterworks equipment and supplies businesses achieve market dominance through the careful execution of deliberate strategies. The inclusion of innovative tactics and techniques is important, but the consistent application of sound marketing principles may be the most important factor in raising your brand's visibility with buyers.

Company Website

If you haven't done so already, the first step in marketing your waterworks equipment and supplies business is also the anchor point for your technological strategy: A company website. Although many businesses have a website, a poorly designed and unnavigable website is worse than having no web presence at all. Your site is a representation of your business; it needs to convey the same professional appearance and functionality as you expect from any other sales and marketing asset. Conversion paths are also important. With the proper design, your site can walk new visitors through a series of decisions that culminate with either an online sale, a phone order, a personal visit or a request for more information.

Marketing Collateral

Brochures, business cards, folders, direct mail pieces, and other types of promotional materials are called marketing collateral. For waterworks equipment and supplies businesses, it's important to make sure every piece of marketing collateral generate reinforces your brand and value proposition. You'll also want to make sure you're making the most effective use of your marketing collateral by getting it into the hands of the right people. For example, if you're spending good money on a direct mail collateral, it's worthwhile to invest in a premium mailing list from a leading mailing list provider. If you're like most business owners, you invest substantial resources in the creation of quality collateral. If you don't invest similar resources in mailing lists and other distribution channels, your waterworks equipment and supplies business's investment in collateral will be pointless.

Staffing Expertise

Assigning responsibility for the execution of a marketing strategy can be more difficult than creating it. For many business owners, in-house staffing is attractive because it can (theoretically) be performed by current employees and can give the owner more control over the process. To maintain marketing momentum, many waterworks equipment and supplies businesses enlist the assistance of external marketing professionals. Outsourcing is less expensive than maintaining an internal marketing unit and it ensures that your company's marketing plan receives the attention it deserves.
