New businesses that attempt to tackle the entire marketplace face a difficult task. A better approach is to customize your approach to an underserved niche.
In the scanning services 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 your assumptions are rooted in solid facts.
Putting It All Together
When everything is said and done, there is no single strategy that can guarantee a close in your efforts to sell to scanning services businesses. It's often a combination of techniques that seals the deal.
Although it's easy to get caught up in the micro-level details of the selling cycle, sellers in this industry need to maintain a macro perspective that combines techniques with selling strategy.
Marketing, Promotions & PR
Emerging B2B businesses are often tempted to buy their way into the market. Rather than taking the time to develop relationships with scanning services business owners, these companies blanket the market with high-priced marketing content in hopes of gaining quick momentum with buyers.
Marketing is useful and necessary. But new businesses should funnel their resources 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.
