Marketing Advice

 

Marketing an Indexing and Abstracting Services Business

The key to success in marketing an indexing and abstracting services business is to combine time-tested marketing techniques with the most cutting edge strategies in today's marketplace.

If you are a business leader who sees marketing as a path to give your indexing and abstracting services business a larger market presence you're not alone.

Top performers habitually integrate sound marketing concepts with market demands.

Strategic Partnerships

Strategic partnerships offer indexing and abstracting services businesses a new approach to the marketplace, rooted in the achievement of shared objectives. Think about it: even on your best day, your company has the ability to influence a certain percentage of potential customers. But when you partner with a complementary supplier to perform a joint marketing campaign, you multiply your customer base and generate a more powerful market presence.

Bundling

Messaging matters - but only to the degree that it communicates value to cost-conscious consumers. Bundling is a tried and true method for marketing value concepts. Instead of presenting buyers with a single product offering, you can combine multiple product offerings into a package deal. Nearly any type of business can tap into the benefits of bundling products or services, so it's easy to see how indexing and abstracting services businesses have the ability to bundle multiple products and services into a single offering that customers find appealing. Since the bundling concept is based on discounts, consumers expect to pay less for the bundle than they would if they were to buy the products separately, so you'll need to make sure your bundle offers real value to buyers.

Cost Tracking

The economy is a constant concern for people who own an indexing and abstracting services business. When businesses buy mailing lists, they expect a return for their investment. Unfortunately, they don't always get it. More often than not, you'll get a better ROI from highly rated list providers than you will from cheaper alternatives. Companies that rely on accurate mailing lists reduce time spent chasing down stale leads.

But mailing lists aren't the only way you can reduce costs. Most accounting software solutions have features that allow you to track costs in multiple expense categories and receive alerts when expenses suddenly swing outside of normal parameters.
