We see marketing as the great equalizer, a business discipline capable of dramatically increasing a small company's footprint in the marketplace.
In some businesses, marketing takes a back seat to sales and operations. That's a mistake because without marketing, your brand messages aren't being heard. On the upside, great marketing is a real possibility for a zinc business willing to adapt its strategy to the demands of the marketplace.
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. The most successful rebranding initiatives are the culmination of a deliberate process. For a zinc 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.
Viral marketing is one of the most elusive marketing techniques in a small business owner's arsenal. By including viral elements in a campaign for a zinc business, you ultimately have to cross your fingers and hope for the best. Although you have little control over whether or not your products go viral, there are things you can do to nurture your brand's viral capacity. Social media and other online vehicles can seed a viral marketing campaign, but you'll need to nurture their development through direct customer interaction as well as other techniques.
Public Relations Strategies
Marketing and public relations are two distinct promotional disciplines. While marketing flows blatant advertising messages to audiences, PR takes a more educational and informative approach. For example, if you buy a premium mailing list and use it to conduct a direct mail campaign, that's marketing. On the other hand, if the Sunday paper runs a story about your zinc business, that's PR. The art of storytelling is a core PR competency. Storylines need to be believable and objective while communicating your brand's strengths and value proposition.
