Marketing Advice

 

Marketing an Estimators Business

Trying to market an estimators business? It's a crowded marketplace, but with dedication and persistence, great marketing can help your business outperform larger competitors.

In an estimators business, a great business model doesn't guarantee solid revenues.

Customer loyalty isn't what it used to be. Cash is king in today's marketplace, so your marketing plan needs to focus on value messages.

Generating Buzz

Good buzz is a mythical creature in marketing circles. Although it's rumored to exist, it's hard to nail down. You've heard it said before: Word of mouth is the best form of promotion for products and brands. For an estimators business, buzz is a critical consideration in the marketing mix. Businesses that target brand discussions need to be active partners in dialogue. With minimal effort, you can instigate conversations through social media and other communication vehicles favored by today's consumers.

Multichannel Marketing Strategies

Multichannel is an important buzzword in today's marketing circles. Today's consumers engage with brands in diverse ways. That means brands need to demonstrate similar diversity in the channels they employ to connect with customers.

Unless you adopt a multichannel strategy, your estimators business will struggle to remain competitive. For many companies, multichannel can mean completely revamping their marketing strategy to include a broader mix of media and information venues. The acquisition of reliable mailing lists from proven providers can expedite the transition, but ultimately your efforts to go multichannel may require the assistance of a marketing professional.

Directories

Directories are a common tool for finding an estimators business. When all of your competitors are listed in a directory, you have no choice in the matter. To keep pace, competitive businesses must include the same directories in their plans for marketing estimators businesses in a region or territory. Although there are plenty of free directory opportunities out there, some directories charge a fee to include your business in their listing. Regardless of whether it is a premium or free listing opportunity, every directory needs to be evaluated on its own merits. 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.
