In order to develop an effective sales and marketing strategy, you need to clearly know the quality of the product or service that your company is making or providing.
Remember that you have to know everything about the product, and most importantly, its advantageous side before offering it to people, who have no idea about it.
Be sure to decide the target audience of your product. For example, companies producing men's clothing and developing things for women focus primarily on young people, especially in the fashion industry. Therefore, it is advisable to prepare a chart of the targeted audience that buy your product.
Make the chart including different columns such as age, sex, social class, income level of the targeted audience. If possible, try to learn the tastes and preferences of your audience, for example, conduct a survey on the Internet or by spreading questionnaires on the street, in cafes , etc.
Try to find more about your competitor. Determine how much goods they are producing and what can they offer to harm your product in the near future. Try to find out what kind of marketing strategy they are using.
Find out the prices that set by the competitors of a given product. Attend the promotional campaigns of their products to have an idea about what they are offering.
Determine the base prices of your goods. In this case, consult the sales department. Prices should not only be competitive but should also contain an element of profitability. Start a sales campaign to promote the product and offer discounts. With this method, you will be able to attract quite a wide target audience.
Conduct an everyday meeting regarding the product sales with the entire sales and marketing staff and try to motivate them to use the same marketing strategy that you have chosen.
The end result of all the activities aimed at improving the marketing of your company depends on those who directly serve your customers and clients. So, organize courses and familiarize all employees with the methods and techniques that are included in your marketing strategy.
