Standing out from the online crowd should be a strategic component of your marketing plan.
Your business is special. That is the first thing that must be thought about when marketing a company online. What is it about your business that makes it different from all the other B2B, Business to businesses, or B2C Business to consumers companies in the world.
Yes, you are competing at the world level. The Internet has made the world a very small place indeed. Circuit board manufactures have found that out since the turn of the century. Data for building the circuit boards can be delivered via electronic forms of communication in a matter of seconds to the other side of the world. Circuit boards can be built in China and shipped overnight to anywhere on the globe. Nothing is out of the realm of world competition except for maybe the local food providers or local service providers. But that is changing also.
Throwaway products are coming on to the market place which simply make it unaffordable or not cost effective to repair older things like VCRs and small stereos. The cost of new products has been dropping, in real dollar terms, significantly since the turn of the century. Hard disk drives have gotten cheaper and can store more information than the previous year’s model. Computers on our desktops are more powerful today than what the US Government had 50 years ago. Solid state memory devices can store over 1000 songs on a single USB flash drive. DVD players for the television market place have dropped to where a DVD player can be purchased for below 50 dollars, and that even includes a remote control unit.
Competition is not just in the same horizontal or even in what would be typically defined as a vertical market. Grocery stores for years have increased the types of products they have carried. Forget the days when you just went to a grocery store to buy food. Now you can buy everything from the superstores. Remember that 50 dollar DVD player I was talking about above? I saw one on sale for 20 dollars by using your free grocery store buying card, and that was not even a superstore.
So, this brings me back to marketing. Good marketing services must include expanding your brand market reach online. This requires more creative thinking and good Internet marketing strategies to really promote a company online.
Take a look at any movie that comes out today. One of the first things a movie studio does today is set up the movie’s website. Movie studios understand that not only is their production studio the brand, but the movie is also being branded in the hearts and minds of the consumer. Likewise, your company may very well have a great brand name recognition, but does this brand recognition lend itself to being found by new customers that might not think of your brand for a certain product or service? This is even more important for the company that does not have the type of brand recognition that some of the bigger players have in their respective fields.
What you need for your business today is greater market penetration, across all key markets that your business is associated with. That really comes down to having good Internet marketing strategies for promoting a B2C or B2B business online. Remember, good Internet marketing strategies are keys to online marketing success.
