Sales, profitability, market share -- the things that matter most to business owners all come down to how well you market your brand and products.
Staying on track requires attention to detail and a commitment to foundational marketing principles.
The PR and marketing community has embraced technology with open arms, transforming basic marketing concepts into sophisticated, tech-driven systems and solutions. One of the things that needs to be considered by acupuncture schools is the use of technological solutions to connect with customers, boost visibility and exploit weaknesses in the marketplace. Despite the initial cost associated with many technological solutions, the long-term payoff for the right technologies almost always outweighs the upfront expense.
At some point, your acupuncture school will engage in direct marketing. A coordinated mailing campaign raises your company's profile and draws new customers into the business. Third-party providers have a reputation for generating accurate mailing lists that can be sorted to accommodate niches and subsections of the market. Despite the added upfront expense, premium mailing lists are a smart investment if for no other reason than their ability to generate higher conversion rates.
Viral marketing is one of the most elusive marketing techniques in a small business owner's arsenal. Viral marketing takes guts and if it is incorporated in the marketing strategy of an acupuncture school, there are no guarantees your efforts will be rewarded. Even though total control is impossible, the right actions at the right times can encourage the viral distribution of brand messages. 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.
