Talking About Marketing Strategy

Yesterday I spoke with a co-worker from another location about marketing and how to build business. He gave me some fresh ideas that I haven’t been applying at my location.

  • Analyze what your competition is doing. If you’re overloaded with competitors in your area, do something different. Move your operation somewhere else where you can develop more freely.
  • Research your target market. It doesn’t make sense to be in a location that’s far away from the people you’re trying to reach.
  • Make an irresistible offer. Offer free or discounted service for partnering up with other businesses. Then these businesses can offer their customers your service for a great price.

I can’t give too much away as far as details go, but this is the gist of what we talked about. You can apply these principles to any business. Moving locations is the only one that may not apply. In the age of the Internet, it’s quite possible you can reach your target audience without leaving your living room. With brick and mortar businesses however, strategic relocation might be a viable option.
