For an oil inspectors business, exceptional product quality is only part of the struggle to meet revenue goals.
In this industry, long-term survivors build their strategies around a core of marketing essentials.
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 oil inspectors 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.
Today's consumers are extremely tech-savvy. They rely on social media and email to both receive and transmit brand messages. So if you can deliver messaging to your customers' inboxes, the likelihood it will be seen and read by a large percentage of recipients is extremely high. In many oil inspectors businesses, the hardest part of an email campaign is gathering the email addresses of likely customers. At Gaebler, we recommend buying mailing lists from professional, third-party providers. Purchased lists aren't the only source for customer contacts, but they can be used to create fast momentum for email campaigns and other initiatives.
Don't have a background in marketing? That shouldn't stop you from taking a larger promotional role in your company by educating yourself about today's most effective marketing concepts. Entrepreneurs and leaders of oil inspectors businesses are usually hesitant to engage in high-risk marketing. Since inexperience raises the risk level, the quality of the marketer is just as important as the quality of the message. When in doubt, tap into either an internal or external knowledge base to design your company's marketing strategy.
