Marketing an Image and Graphics Printing Business

Promotional tactics for image and graphics printing businesses are exceptionally diverse. But in our experience, there are a handful of tips and strategies that will deliver the best return for your marketing efforts.

Great image and graphics printing business leaders tend to possess solid marketing skills. Yet in this industry, the characteristics of able marketers aren't always obvious.

What to know the characteristics that distinguish leading image and graphics printing businesses from the competition? Most of the time it's not the quality of their product offerings -- it's their ability to communicate granular marketing messages to their customer base.

Niche Marketing

A niche marketing approach is a good fit for small businesses, particularly image and graphics printing businesses that hope to dominate a geographic of demographic wedge of the marketplace. To be effective, niche marketing requires attention to the kinds of details many businesses overlook. A keen awareness of your company's unique value proposition is a prerequisite for success in this approach.

Many companies facilitate niche marketing by providing specialty mailing lists. These lists are targeted and filtered, and deliver greater focus to your company's direct mail campaigns. Specialty mailing lists from top-rate providers take the niche concept a step further by giving you measured insights about consumer behaviors within the niche.

Customer Awareness

Most image and graphics printing businesses go out of their way to maintain clear channels of communication with their customers. Consequently, market analysis has become a business priority. Why? Because without a thorough understanding of buyer mindsets, it is impossible to accurately predict which tactics will deliver results. By improving market awareness, small companies can often establish more meaningful customer connections than their competitors.

Price Matching

Price matching is a protection for buyers who are concerned that they could find a better deal elsewhere. For businesses, price matching eliminates buying risk, convincing cautious consumers to buy now. The principle is simple: Since pricing is a primary factor in product selection, your business agrees to match advertised competitor pricing. Without price matching, if they can locate lower pricing from a competing image and graphics printing business, customers will transfer loyalty to the competition - and take their friends with them. Survey the marketplace. If competitors have adopted price matching strategies, you have no choice but to adopt price matching as well, even if it means reshaping your business model to accommodate a new pricing structure.
