Marketing Tips

 

Marketing an Earthquake Preparation Business

Marketing plays a central role in any company. But when it comes to an earthquake preparation business, your ability to market your brand can be the deciding factor between barely making it and achieving stellar industry success.

Marketing is a tricky business discipline, especially for inexperienced entrepreneurs who possess more enthusiasm than expertise.

So what separates the best earthquake preparation businesses from average companies? Surprisingly, the ability to create clear brand messages often outweighs product quality and other considerations.

Measurement & Evaluation

By purchasing high quality mailing lists from reliable providers, earthquake preparation businesses can achieve greater returns from their marketing initiatives. However, there are no substitutes for measurement and evaluation mechanisms. 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, earthquake preparation businesses often choose to consult with professional marketers for assessment tools and strategic insights.

Directories

Directories are a common tool for finding an earthquake preparation business. Yellow pages, industry listings, online databases, and other directory options are routinely used as vehicles for promoting earthquake preparation businesses to both broad and targeted customer bases. Premium directories may or may not deliver the ROI you expect to receive from paid marketing vehicles. Do your research and make sure any directory in which you list your business is capable of reaching enough likely customers to make it worth the effort. Some directories may also let you list more than your name and contact information, so be sure to ask whether your listing can include a logo and other information about your business.

Competitive Awareness

Do you have a new marketing idea that will transform your industry? Don't be so sure - at least not until you have explored what the competition is doing. Innovation is desirable in marketing, but if your company doesn't maintain a presence in the channels that are being used by other earthquake preparation businesses, it could be a sign that you're out of touch with the marketplace. At a minimum, we recommend seeking a third-party perspective before you adopt any innovations that dramatically alter your marketing model.
