Over the last few months, we’ve been working with Ross & Lorraine of Encore Carpets on an array of marketing projects.
Like many business owners Ross and Lorraine have no shortage of great ideas but never have the time to execute them. Moreover, they do not have the field of expertise to productively go through the marketing process.
“Like many small business owners I’m constantly under the pump to deliver quality and the best service to our clients and (I’m the first to admit it) find it a huge challenge to sit down and write editorial, copy or marketing material. I dream of all these marvellous ideas and never get to accomplish them. The frustration of this was driving me crazy so I made a phone call to Eddie, had a brief meeting, told him what I required and we worked out a plan of action” says Lorraine
To help Lorraine and Ross with their marketing challenges we created a marketing plan for them and convinced them to throw out the old machine gun marketing tactics and create targeted marketing messages and offers for their hottest groups of prospects.
In this case, Encore Carpets had two core target markets
One being residential homeowners, apartment owners and property managers of large gated communities and complexes. This is based on their previous feedback and frontline experience in their business that at one time or another most of these people needed carpet and rug cleaning, carpet dying services, carpet stain removal or new carpet.
The other group of people we targeted which they’d like more of were professional service and hospitality businesses such Real Estate Agencies, Golf Clubs, restaurants, Body Corporates, medical and business office centre’s and gyms.
Phase 1. Home owners, apartments ands units and gated communities
First, we tweaked their existing generic flyer. Like most business flyers the original was a “me” message with their logo and phone number on it and that was about it.
So we created a targeted customer benefit headline, emotional targeted sales copy and a call to action with a time sensitive offer to grab the attention of homeowners to generate quality new leads. Testing still in progress.
Phase 2. Top Of Mind Campaign – Applies to residential, commercial and industrial clients and network
Second, many small business owners forget the importance of keeping in touch with their existing clientele. Chances are, if your customer liked the service you provided, they will refer you and become a repeat customer.
However like many in small business Lorraine and her team had nothing in place to stay top of mind with their most precious asset, their past and present customers.
So, we cleansed their database, designed, wrote and set up an e-newsletter for them so they could start staying top of mind with their past clients.
“I first met Eddie a few years ago (at a local business networking event) and was impressed by his desire to share ideas and knowledge on all things relating to marketing a business.
“Like many small business owners I’m constantly under the pump to deliver on quality and service to our clients and (I’m the first to admit it) find it a huge challenge to sit down and write editorial, copy or marketing material.
“I dream up all of these marvellous ideas and never get to action them. The frustration of this was driving me crazy so I made a phone call to Eddie, had a brief meeting, told him what I required and we worked out a plan of action.
“Eddie I truly value your assistance and appreciate the personalised attention to detail. It’s just like having your own creative copy writer. You truly are a gem. Kind regards, Lorraine Pearson, Encore carpet Professionals
