Marketing Tips

 

Marketing an Instrumental Music Instruction Business

Marketing plays a central role in any company. But when it comes to an instrumental music instruction business, your ability to market your brand can be the deciding factor between barely making it and achieving stellar industry success.

The struggle to find the right marketing mix is never-ending in a profit-oriented small business. However, great marketing strategies share a common characteristic.

In general, good business owners make good marketers. But as an innovative business leader, you need to follow the marketing tactics competitive instrumental music instruction businesses have incorporated into their marketing plans.

Competitive Awareness

Good marketing begins with an awareness of what your competitors are doing to attract customers and stir up sales. We appreciate innovative tactics. But when innovation causes you to abandon message streams that are trafficked by similar instrumental music instruction businesses, there's a good chance that you're missing something. At a minimum, we recommend seeking a third-party perspective before you adopt any innovations that dramatically alter your marketing model.

Social Media Monitoring

The use of social media as a marketing tool is the latest wave to overtake the small business community. Combined with a functional company website, social media attracts new customers and converts them to brand advocates. Even though the potential for social media to generate positive conversations about your product is good, the potential for it to create negative, online word-of-mouth is a concern that must be taken seriously. All instrumental music instruction businesses are especially vulnerable to negative exposure through social media. To counter negative social media, you'll need to monitor your brand's online presence and enter the conversation, redirecting negative discussions toward more positive topics.

Public Relations Strategies

If marketing is a stock car racing full throttle toward a consumer audience, PR is a vintage Cadillac teasing consumers and inviting them to take a closer look. 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.
