Marketing Tips

 

Marketing an Excavating and Ditching Equipment Business

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

We see marketing as the great equalizer, a business discipline capable of dramatically increasing a small company's footprint in the marketplace.

Strategic marketing tactics can help small excavating and ditching equipment businesses stand toe-to-toe with the rest of the market. What small companies lack in resources, they can make up for in marketing intelligence and expertise.

Sponsorships

Event and team sponsorships are a proven method for raising the public profile of excavating and ditching equipment businesses. Successful sponsorships create connections with customers; ineffective ones alienate customers and drain your marketing budget. A strategic sponsorship targets actual excavating and ditching equipment business patrons. To minimize costs and multiply outcomes, consider teaming up with a complementary business to co-sponsor targeted events.

Public Relations Strategies

The beauty of PR is that it can raise awareness of your offerings in a very credible and cost-effective fashion. If you want to send unrestricted marketing messages to your audience, buy a mailing list and perform a direct mail campaign. But if your strategy calls for sophistication, media buy-in and thought leadership, hire a PR consultant. The art of storytelling is a core PR competency. Storylines need to be believable and objective while communicating your brand's strengths and value proposition.

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. That's not how rebranding works. Instead, rebranding should be performed for the right reasons. For an excavating and ditching equipment business, the time to rebrand is when your current brand is outdated or no longer in sync with the needs of the marketplace. All businesses change over time and rebranding can bring your business profile in line with your current core competencies. If rebranding is unavoidable, it's important to update the brand while maintaining the elements that make it recognizable to consumers.
