We see marketing as the great equalizer, a business discipline capable of dramatically increasing a small company's footprint in the marketplace.
Customer loyalty isn't what it used to be. Cash is king in today's marketplace, so your marketing plan needs to focus on value messages.
Hiring A Marketing Firm
Sooner or later, most animal behavior service operations turn to marketing firms for guidance. Unless you have a marketing background, you won't be able to touch the ROI you'll receive from a professional firm. Does a marketing firm cost money? Sure, but not as much as you may think. When it's time to look for a marketing firm to represent your animal behavior service, the first thing to look for is marketing experience. Marketing firms that lack industry experience are sometimes unfamiliar with competitive marketing channels and may not understand the value propositions that dominate industry messaging.
Ethically challenged marketers are a dime a dozen in today's economy. Industry-leading animal behavior services avoid marketing tactics that exploit their customers. Ethics are especially important in direct marketing. By relying on trusted list provider, you can ensure that your lists are accurate and are consistent with standard industry protocols.
Give Word of Mouth Marketing a Try
Industry-leading animal behavior services rely on a certain amount of word of mouth marketing buzz to communicate brand values and product messaging.
Word-of-mouth is unpredictable, but it's not completely out of your control. A skilled marketer can use online and offline marketing tactics to boost consumer discussions about your offerings. Mind you, there's a difference between word of mouth marketing and viral marketing -- if word of mouth marketing is a new concept for you, you might want to hire a marketing consultant.
