Marketing is a tricky business discipline, especially for inexperienced entrepreneurs who possess more enthusiasm than expertise.
A robust marketing plan cements your company's relationships with customers. With that in mind, it's important to leverage marketing as a path toward better customer engagement in your ozone equipment business's strategic plan.
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 ozone equipment 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.
Do you have a new marketing idea that will transform your industry? Don't be so sure - at least not until you have explored what the competition is doing. There's nothing wrong with creativity, but if it precludes your messaging from being represented alongside other ozone equipment businesses, there's a good chance that you're missing something. Many businesses find it useful to hire a professional marketing firm to help them evaluate the competitive landscape and devise strategies to exploit competitors' weaknesses.
Brochures, business cards, folders, direct mail pieces, and other types of promotional materials are called marketing collateral. For ozone equipment businesses, it's important to make sure every piece of marketing collateral generate reinforces your brand and value proposition. To squeeze the most impact from your collateral, it needs to be targeted toward its recipients. Delivered to the wrong person, a valuable piece of collateral will collect dust. Collateral distributed through direct mail channels realizes its highest return when it is paired with an updated mailing list from a top mailing list vendor. If you're like most business owners, you invest substantial resources in the creation of quality collateral. If you don't invest similar resources in mailing lists and other distribution channels, your ozone equipment business's investment in collateral will be pointless.
