In any B2B industry, one of the key indicators of long-term success is the ability to expand your customer base. Fortunately clock moving services businesses are plentiful, but the challenge is to acquire and retain new accounts.
Marketing, Promotions & PR
Young B2B companies are often tempted to buy their way into the market. Rather than taking the time to develop relationships with clock moving services business owners, these companies blanket the market with high-priced marketing content in hopes of making rapid headway with buyers.
Marketing is useful and necessary. But new businesses should channel their energy toward initiatives that support their value proposition. Although lead lists obtained from third-party vendors like Experian can dramatically increase the quality of your prospects, the effectiveness of your marketing efforts is limited to your team's ability to connect marketing, promotional and PR messaging with your company's unique product traits.
In clock moving services business sales, industry experience is a huge plus. Although it isn't necessary to have decades of front line experience, it helps to speak the industry language and to understand the pressure points of a typical clock moving services business.
B2B sellers who lack industry experience can supplement the shortfall by subscribing to trade journals, partnering with industry insiders and immersing themselves in the industry culture. Remember, clock moving services businesses may also be more amenable to sellers within their network, so it's important to increase the size of your network as quickly as possible.
Cooperation is a key feature of companies that succeed in selling to clock moving services businesses. Silo business models simply aren't as efficient as models that emphasize collaboration between business units.
In some cases, the synergy between sales, marketing and other business units can provide the impetus for meaningful growth.
