Small Business Marketing Strategies- Separate Yourself!

For many small businesses there may be only two or three other competitors in the area. So how do your separate yourself from the rest?  While you may provide similar services or products and be comparatively priced to similar businesses in the area, there are some small business marketing strategies you can utilize to set your company apart from the competition.   Read on to learn more about how to win over your customer base.

One of the best ways to set your business apart from the rest is sharing positive feedback from other clients.  By providing great customer service, you are sure to win over customers and increase repeat business.  With the customer’s permission, promote their encouraging words on your website, tweet them in a message, or share them on your blog.  The best and most cost-effective advertising are those compliments from happy customers.

Another important aspect to any small business branding strategy is to keep your logo and name consistent.  Don’t confuse the customers.  Ensure that all business-related social media accounts, promotional materials, and printed advertising carry the same branding logo and business name.

Lastly, keep your small business involved in the community.  Local events, fundraisers, and sponsorships are great ways to get your name into the neighborhood while supporting those that support you.  Another option would be to lend services or products to social groups and non-profits in the area.  This is a great way to create publicity for your business with less out-of-pocket expense.

Our staff at Grand Marketing Solutions can help set your company apart from the rest.  We have proven experience building a strong brand campaign for small businesses across a variety of industries.  Spanning from print marketing to social media initiatives, Grand Marketing Solutions can assist you in every aspect of your branding strategy.

    Before starting Business Image Magazine, I met with dozens of graphic designers/printers and worked with a couple before I met Karl Hofmeier of Grand Marketing Solutions . I heard Karl speak at a networking event and was impressed with his expertise. Since then, Grand Marketing Solutions has become my one stop shop for marketing advice, graphic design, printing, website design and maintenance. The service is second to none and I am happy to refer all my clients and prospects to him.
