Communicating the strengths of an eaves troughs business can be challenging, especially for business owners who lack a marketing background.
In general, good business owners make good marketers. But as an innovative business leader, you need to follow the strategies that other eaves troughs businesses utilize in the marketplace.
Hiring A Marketing Firm
Eventually nearly all eaves troughs business operations turn to marketing firms for guidance. Professional marketers are usually on the bleeding edge of the industry and boast better returns for the investment than internal marketing units. 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 eaves troughs business, it's important to find a firm with proven experience in the industry. Marketing firms that lack industry experience are sometimes unfamiliar with competitive marketing channels and may not understand the value propositions that dominate industry messaging.
Today's consumers are extremely tech-savvy. They rely on social media and email to both receive and transmit brand messages. What does that mean for your company? It means the odds are in favor of email campaigns actually connecting with customers. For eaves troughs businesses, the real challenge is compiling a substantive quantity of qualified email addresses. At Gaebler, we recommend buying mailing lists from professional, third-party providers. Purchased lists aren't the only source for customer contacts, but they can be used to create fast momentum for email campaigns and other initiatives.
Social Media Monitoring
Social media has become a prominent fixture in marketing. For small businesses, an aggressive social media campaign can level the playing field by generating online buzz that competes with corporate marketing initiatives. Social media can quickly go negative, turning brand advocacy into "badvocacy", a scenario in which consumers and users create content deriding your company and your products. Most eaves troughs businesses are especially vulnerable to negative exposure through social media. If your brand is taking a hit from negative mentions, it's important to generate enough positive content to push negative mentions down in search rankings. The more positive mentions that exist, the more difficult it is for negative comments (generated through social media) to gain traction on search engines like Google and Yahoo.
