Businesses Should Seek Competitive Edge In A Struggling Economic Environment
With the recession rolling along with almost no end in sight businesses are wondering how to secure new clients without spending a lot of money. Creating a competitive edge is the desired outcome and the question is, how can you do this?
According to National Media Strategist & Publicist Annie Jennings of the publicity firm, Annie Jennings PR, consultants and business professionals who run small businesses do not have to spend a lot of money to edge out their competitors. Then can create thought leader status and become a sought after expert in their field. This, coupled with a marketing outreach to new clients, creates a powerful marketing plan.
“Consultants and businesses just have to go the ‘extra mile’ to excel in their areas. They should be visible to their targeted business community and offer expanded value with guaranteed deliverables,” says Strategist, Annie Jennings. “No client wants to throw their money away on what might happen if they buy your product or service, they want clear deliverables that they can use to further their income, growth and ability to serve their clients”.
“They also want to do business with consultants and businesses that are CENTER STAGE,” adds Annie Jennings. “Clients like to do business with people they feel are vital, creative, strong, successful and engaged with plenty of energy to produce powerful outcomes for them.
Here are some guidelines to use in creating your competitive marketing advantage: Make a difference in the lives of your clients and teach them what they need to know to excel using your products and services. This way, your business becomes an investment for clients in that they expect to earn a return on their purchase with you. Also, by actively engaging in your client’s success, you fuel your creativity to build new products and services that truly meet the needs of your marketplace and avoid the products and services that lead to nowhere.
“Once you become invested in the success of your client you are motivated and inspired to create better, higher performance products and strategies to help your clients succeed,” says Media Expert, Annie Jennings of the National PR strategy firm, Annie Jennings PR. “Make it your business that your clients are successful and you will be too”.
Annie Jennings encourages consultants and business professionals to understand how their products and services fuel their client’s growth and income. Businesses should evaluate how their firm helps their clients be more competitive and prosperous. Be sure to offer products and services that lead to enhanced market share for your client.
