Marketing a Wholesale Distributors Business

At Gaebler, we've seen what great marketing can do for a small business. But if you own a wholesale distributors business, exceptional marketing may well be the determining factor in your long-term survival and success.

Sales, profitability, market share -- the things that matter most to business owners all come down to how well you market your brand and products.

Marketing increases the brand footprint of a wholesale distributors business using a carefully crafted mix of techniques and tactics.

Customer Awareness

Top wholesale distributors businesses identify customer awareness as one of the hallmarks of their success. In this market sector, managers and promoters need to be extremely familiar with their customers' needs and purchasing preferences. More often than not, failure to maintain a robust connection with the marketplace translates into poor brand recognition and lackluster sales. On the other hand, businesses that are in touch with their customers' preferences and pressure points are better equipped to create marketing strategies that connect with buyers.

Building A Community Around Your Brand

There is a reason why so many businesses are incorporating social media into their marketing and PR strategies. Social media attracts followers and creates brand advocates. Many wholesale distributors businesses need to do a better job connecting with their customers. There are many ways to launch a social media strategy. In our experience, it's helpful to begin with a direct mail campaign. Using vendor-provided mailing lists, you can broaden your reach by informing new contacts as well as established customers about your presence on popular sites like Facebook, Twitter and LinkedIn.

Encourage Word of Mouth Referrals

Industry-leading wholesale distributors businesses operate in a business environment that relies on word of mouth marketing promotion to bolster customer acquisition and convert periodic buyers into loyal followers.

As a rule, your marketing strategy should include mechanisms that encourage meaningful brand conversations and spread the good word about your business. Although using buzz marketing to grow a business is inexpensive, it is often one of the best ways to market a wholesale distributors business.
