If you are a business leader who sees marketing as a path to give your electronics school a competitive advantage you're not alone.
Simplistic promotional techniques can't penetrate the clutter of the current marketplace. Effective marketing now means translating market learnings into techniques and tactics that are relevant to your business.
Today's consumers are extremely tech-savvy. They rely on social media and email to both receive and transmit brand messages. 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. For the majority of electronics schools, collecting and updating the email addresses of qualified recipients isn't cost-effective. 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.
Never underestimate the value of good buzz with consumers. You've heard it said before: Word of mouth is the best form of promotion for products and brands. When you're promoting an electronics school, meaningful brand conversations have the ability to transform the impact of your marketing efforts. The process begins with developing communication vehicles and mechanisms that invite discussion. With minimal effort, you can instigate conversations through social media and other communication vehicles favored by today's consumers.
Discounts drive purchasing decisions, and electronics school shoppers treat value as an invitation to buy. The power of a great discount is its ability to convince buyers that are receiving special treatment, a deal that isn't ordinarily available. However, for consumers located in the electronics school sector, you won't get far with discounts unless you communicate clear value. Offsetting discounts with inflated pricing is a tired ploy that often does more harm than good. Instead, think about how you can use discounts to lure customers in during a slow period, to generate traction for new product offerings, and to break into new markets.
