Many view the internet as a social and retail vehicle, but more manufacturers are now discovering the secrets of using it for generating new business. Marketing for manufacturers includes a creative internet strategy that can help in many ways, including:
- Uncovering new opportunities for their business that they may not have previously recognized.
- Strengthening relationships by creating extra value for current customers. The internet can strengthen even long term relationships.
More than A Sales Vehicle
Many companies struggle because they view the internet strictly as a sales vehicle. They use it like traditional media, telling anyone who will listen who they are, where they are located, and what they do. These companies are all too willing to point out their experience, show their products and make online offers. They have forgotten that sales, especially large, long-term sales, are accomplished by first building relationships based on trust.
This is where the internet is extremely valuable. It is a remarkable tool to connect and build relationships. It may not be the place for selling, yet it can funnel potential customers right to you…IF you know the right approach.
