Marketing Tips

 

Marketing an Elastic Goods Retailer

Small and medium size elastic goods retailers can compete and even outperform larger competitors. All it takes is the right marketing plan.

Small-mindedness has no place in great marketing. In fact, a strong marketing strategy can give a small business high visibility in the marketplace.

In some businesses, marketing takes a back seat to sales and operations. That's a mistake because without marketing, your brand messages aren't being heard. On the upside, great marketing is a real possibility for a elastic goods retailer with a strong value proposition and a desire to achieve a visible market presence.

Email Campaigns

Email campaigns make use of the fact that most consumers and businesses receive information electronically. More than 50% of all email users check their inbox six or more times a day. So if you can deliver messaging to your customers' inboxes, the likelihood it will be seen and read by a large percentage of recipients is extremely high. In many elastic goods retailers, the real challenge is compiling a substantive quantity of qualified email addresses. Premium mailing list providers can mitigate the cost and hassle of in-house list generation. More importantly, providers typically give business owner an assurance that their lists are accurate and up-to-date.

When It's Time to Rebrand

Looking for a way to re-catalyze your marketing program? If you need a quick fix, rebranding might not be the right tool for the job. Rebranding is an intentional marketing technique designed to deliver long term results. In an elastic goods retailer, owners are often inspired to rebrand after analysis has demonstrated that the current brand is losing its impact in the marketplace. Unless you are confident that you possess the skills necessary to rebrand your business, we advise consulting with a professional marketing firm before you introduce a new brand to your customers.

Price Matching

In a difficult economy, consumers expect businesses to engage in a certain amount of price matching. If your company's prices can be beat by someone else's elastic goods retailer, potential clients will abandon your brand in droves. Today's consumers are educated and informed. They use social media and other tools to identify the best pricing, making it imperative for small business to consider the value of a well-publicized price matching strategy.
