For B2B professionals that sell to these companies, the industry's positive growth outlook makes the implementation of proven sales techniques more important than ever.
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 filling machinery business owners, these companies blanket the market with high-priced marketing content in hopes of scoring fast conversions from 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 equip your sales force with targeted 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.
New businesses that attempt to tackle the entire marketplace face a long, uphill battle. A better approach is to tailor your business model to an underserved niche.
In the filling machinery business industry, niches can be based on geographic, demographic or industry-specific factors. For niche sellers, advance research is essential. Don't assume that there will be demand for a niche product line unless you have done your homework and can support your expectations with solid research.
