Inexperience and a lack of industry connections have an isolating effect on owners of an auto speed controls business. Although there is a tendency to believe that the challenges you face are unique to your business, your competitors face many of the same marketing hurdles and obstacles. To overcome those obstacles, you'll need to tap into industry resources. Trade associations, business networks, and other venues usually offer resources to help you improve your marketing skills. If possible, establish a mentoring relationship with an experienced industry veteran.
Broadcast advertising has clearly taken some hits over the past couple of decades. The number of consumers who tune-in to local TV and radio has plummeted, and the industry has struggled to regain its footing. However, it would be a mistake to discount broadcast advertising entirely. Many auto speed controls businesses are leveraging broadcast media to perform specific aspects of their marketing strategies. Best practices for the use of broadcast advertising require businesses to evaluate their target audience's listening or viewing patterns and then tailor their media purchases to specific media outlets rather than blanketing the geography with brand messaging. For auto speed controls businesses, the target audience is almost always local or regional. For broader reach, you'll likely need to look beyond broadcast venues and explore other online and offline marketing vehicles.
Cost is an issue in marketing an auto speed controls business. When businesses buy mailing lists, they expect a return for their investment. Unfortunately, they don't always get it. More often than not, you'll get a better ROI from highly rated list providers than you will from cheaper alternatives. Good mailing lists are money in the bank; they deliver leads, revenue and most importantly, new customers.
In addition to purchasing first-rate mailing lists, we advise our business partners to carefully track the costs and returns for each of their marketing channels. If a specific marketing channel fails to meet your expectations, consult with a professional marketing firm about how to make the channel more productive or eliminate it from your marketing mix.
