Marketing Strategies for Small and Medium Companies
By John Nabeel
Most commonly owners of small businesses do not have enough money, resources and time to implement a comprehensive advertisement and marketing campaign on a big scale. The owners of small companies can use some easy marketing strategies to advertise their goods or services and grow their organization . We will talk about some of the tips to do this.
Interaction with existing customers:
It is important to interact on a regular basis with the existing customers because repeat business is the most cost effective and easiest business. Many owners of small or medium businesses forget to implement this easy marketing strategy when they are lost in the every day tasks of the business.
Interaction with existing customers is cost effective and very easy. Updates about the special discounts, developments, latest news, promotions, and improvements in products can be provided to the customers with the assistance of a simple email or newsletter.
Use social media to reach out to the target market:
Another simple method of building online presence, capturing prospective customers, and promoting brand is using social media. By social media we mean social networking websites like Facebook and Linkedin; blogging sites like Blogger and WordPress. If the prospective customers are users of social media, the owners of small or medium companies should also be there.
Regular participation is the trick to use online social networking for successful marketing. Creating a dormant page on Facebook or submitting a blog ones in a month is not going to be sufficient. The owner will have to regularly participate and communicate with the prospects. Communication with prospective customers will include commenting on posts, writing good content, and creating a group of like-minded people on the net.
Apart from networking on social media, face-to-face networking is also very important. The business owners can begin networking by taking part in social clubs, sports clubs, business events and luncheons, or joining local Chambers of Commerce, fundraising events. Such events and activities have a potential for generating business leads.
Begin building mutually beneficial referral relationships:
Referral contacts almost certainly lead to new business and customers with the passage of time. Other linked non-competing organizations should be contacted and the possibility of referring clients to each other should be discussed. For building referral relationships it is important that a high standard of professionalism is kept and answer to messages, phones, and emails is kept timely and prompt. Everyone should be valued regardless of whether it is a chief executive of a company or a front desk receptionist.
A professional such as a marketing agency can also provide some useful advices. If affordable, a professional can be hired for formulation and implementation of marketing strategies.
