Marketing an Industrial Feeders Business

The value and earning capacity of an industrial feeders business largely depends on the quality of its marketing efforts. But great marketing takes a lot more than hanging a shingle and hoping for the best.

Multiple marketing factors affect bottom line profitability. But there is one trait that stands out above all the rest in terms of its ability to deliver marketing success.

Common sense and practical decision making are part of the marketing equation. But to rise to the top of the industry, you'll need to gain a deeper understanding of the marketing tactics competitive industrial feeders businesses utilize in the marketplace.

Loss Leaders

The majority of industrial feeders businesses understand that more customers will walk through the door if a few products are priced at less than full retail value. Although you may lose money on one product, you can make up for it buy selling a higher volume of other products. But to be effective, loss leader marketing requires planning, especially in product selection and price points. When used in industrial feeders businesses, the real benefits of loss leaders emerge through the careful marketing of other products, usually offered at a much higher margin. Whenever possible, piggyback a loss leader approach with the purchase of bulk merchandise that can be bought at a discount.

Industry Resources

Lone rangers don't survive long in an industrial feeders business. Most leaders are oblivious to the fact that the marketplace shows no favoritism - for every marketing challenge your business faces, there are hundreds of other businesses and leaders struggling to solve the same problem. The best resources are usually the ones that leverage industry-specific experience and the input of proven veterans.

Niche Marketing

Niche marketing is strategy that focuses on a subsection of the larger market. This can be especially useful for industrial feeders businesses trying to establish a larger footprint in a targeted market segment. Niche marketing isn't new. It's been around for years and has proven to be most effective for firms that understand their key strengths and core audience.

Furthermore, niche marketing means tailoring resource acquisitions to the needs of your market segment. For example, top providers can focus mailing lists to the specific requirements of your market niche.
