Marketing Fundamentals for your Plumbing Business

by Plumbing Marketing Profits on November 13, 2012

On this episode of Plumbing Marketing Profits Josh Nelson goes back to the basics essential FUNDAMENTALS for effectively marketing online.

As I talk with Plumbers & Plumbing contractors across the United States I have come to realize that a vast majority of you tend to skip strait past the fundamentals of your marketing strategy and want to go strait to tactics (Pay-per-click adverting, YellowPages, Direct mail, etc).

So what do I mean when I say “Fundamentals”? Well, all marketing has 3 core components:Plumbing Marketing Plan Fundamentals
  1. Message
  2. Market
  3. Media

Interesting topic, when I started my plumbing company I said ok WHAT am I really selling, WHO am I selling it to, HOW do I get it to them, and WHY should they buy from us. 2 years in and we are about to put into service our 4th truck and are expecting 600-700k in sales for the year. So many people overlook the business end and only focus on the product end. Spending 40 minutes on a plan for the week, the month, or the quarter really gives you a guidline to follow. Great work on the podcast.

I found this site on accident and man, I am glad I did. The owner of the company I work for has been looking restlessly for the core values of a growing plumbing business and you have ample amounts of great advise. Thank you.
