Marketing Plans for Niche Markets

Marketing a Window Tinting and Coating Materials Business

The task of promoting a window tinting and coating materials business has to receive the highest priority in your organization. But what marketing techniques and strategies are successful in the current economy?

We see marketing as the great equalizer, a business discipline capable of dramatically increasing a small company's footprint in the marketplace.

It's not hard to convince most business owners that marketing plays a vital role in strategic planning. But in a zero-sum economy, there are winners and losers -- and here are some of the things that will help keep your window tinting and coating materials business at the top of the heap.

Measurement & Evaluation

Performance is the ultimate measure of quality. You can improve the quality of your B2B and B2C efforts by considering professional mailing lists provided by established vendors. That's just one of the ways window tinting and coating materials businesses may be able to increase the impact of their marketing tactics. For even greater returns, you'll need to explore ways to improve measurement and evaluation. A robust measurement and evaluation process should include metrics that can be monitored on a monthly, weekly or even daily basis. Designed to monitor marketing efforts on a campaign-by-campaign basis, these metrics can be used as a baseline for strategic planning. Simple quantitative tools are a good start. However, window tinting and coating materials businesses often choose to consult with professional marketers for assessment tools and strategic insights.

Leveraging Print Ads

You're probably familiar with many of the ways print advertising has been used to market window tinting and coating materials businesses. In the digital age, print advertising's influence has been under attack from new media technologies and an expanded range of marketing channels. Even though the Internet has challenged the position print ads once held in marketing circles, you can still realize substantial gains from marketing your window tinting and coating materials business in print. The difference is that it's more important than ever to make sure the publications you target reach the right people. Publications geared toward large, general readerships tend to be less productive than publications that are read by likely buyers of your products and services.

When It's Time to Rebrand

There are many reasons why it might be time to begin a rebranding initiative - but a lack of alternative tactics is not one of them. Rebranding is an intentional marketing technique designed to deliver long term results. For a window tinting and coating materials business, owners are often inspired to rebrand after analysis has demonstrated that the current brand is losing its impact in the marketplace. Unless you are confident that you possess the skills necessary to rebrand your business, we advise consulting with a professional marketing firm before you introduce a new brand to your customers.
