4 Tips That Will Help You Develop A Cohesive Marketing Strategy For Your Pool Company

  1. Your marketing spend should be equivalent to 1.5% – 3% of your projected gross annual sales. So if you are projecting to do $2 million dollars in pool sales. You should expect to earmark $30,000 – $60,000 on marketing expedentitures in order to meet your sales goals.
  2. Your marketing budget should be clearly defined and broken down into periods where you’ll require higher emphasis on outside lead generation (typically spending more in the off-season winter months and less in the summer months) to maintain sales quotas.
  3. The buckets in which you invest your marketing budget should be clearly defined into seperate but identifiable expenditures such as Print Advertising in Magazines, Flyers, Doorhangers, Business Cards, Promotional Items etc. Digital advertising on banner ads, search ads and social media. Website, Reputation Management, and SEO, to capture more web traffic and produce more organic search leads.
  4. Failure to properly execute – is the number one reason most marketing campaigns don’t succeed. This goes back to that winning horse analogy. Invest your marketing dollars in a forward thinking digital agency that has a track record for producing consistent results.
