A snazzy logo, glossy brochure and must-have brand merchandise mean nothing apart from a robust marketing strategy.
Want to improve your marketing? The most successful oil well testing businesses achieve market dominance through the careful execution of deliberate strategies. Although you'll need to consider your company's unique marketing objectives, there are several tips we advise our partners to integrate into their promotional plans and strategies.
Lone rangers don't survive long in an oil well testing 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. Trade associations, business networks, and other venues usually offer resources to help you improve your marketing skills. If possible, establish a mentoring relationship with an experienced industry veteran.
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. Social media can quickly go negative, turning brand advocacy into "badvocacy", a scenario in which consumers and users create content deriding your company and your products. All oil well testing businesses have too much at stake to ignore derogatory social media mentions. 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.
The economy is a constant concern for people who own an oil well testing 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. Good mailing lists are money in the bank; they deliver leads, revenue and most importantly, new customers.
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.
