Marketing a Wedding Candles Business

Promotional tactics for wedding candles businesses are exceptionally diverse. But in our experience, there are a handful of tips and strategies that will deliver the best return for your marketing efforts.

Marketing is a tricky business discipline, especially for inexperienced entrepreneurs who possess more enthusiasm than expertise.

Some marketing concepts are just common sense. Unfortunately, it's takes more than a basic business mindset to achieve total market visibility. You will also have to become a student of specific marketing strategies for a wedding candles business.

Geolocational Marketing

Have you noticed that almost everyone has a smartphone these days? Savvy marketers believe that smartphone marketing is the next big promotional trend and are investing in strategies that leverage the mobile computing power of today's consumers. With little or no effort, users can transform their mobile device into a highly functional tool for location and navigation. As a wedding candles business marketer, geolocational features can be a powerful weapon in your marketing arsenal. Geolocational marketing is an emerging trend. It's difficult (if not impossible) for small businesses to get in on the action without the assistance of a marketing firm that is experienced in creating mobile-based marketing strategies. There are many ways to influence consumers through mobile GPS. However, in its simplest form, geolocational marketing enables consumers to identify a wedding candles business in their immediate area.

Strategic Partnerships

When multiple interests join together in a strategic partnership, they gain wedding candles businesses economies of scale, not to mention a larger promotional footprint. Joint ad campaigns, mailings and other marketing initiatives can be conducted on either a short- or long-term basis, as long as each partner is involved in the creation of messaging and has approval authority over the content that is released.

Media Monitoring

Some marketing initiatives lend themselves to simple measurement while others are more challenging. Direct mail can be evaluated by tallying the cost of inputs (e.g. a premium mailing list, printing, postage, etc.) and measuring the number of customer responses you receive from the campaign. The difficulty comes when you are tasked with quantifying market presence and brand influence. With the help of marketing professionals, media monitoring can provide up-to-date assessments of the amount of influence your wedding candles business has in the public sphere. Although media monitoring is not the only tool for measuring intangible brand qualities, it has the benefit of highlighting negative PR, giving your wedding candles business the ability to control bad buzz when it appears in the marketplace.
