MARKETING FOR BEVERAGE COMPANIES

The food and beverage industry has been steadily growing over the last 10 years, and this growth is only expected to continue.
But the larger the market, the more competitive it is.

How make consumers choose your brand rather than the other?

Consumers are now looking for a whole experience. Beyond eating and drinking, they now want to take a picture and share it on social media.

How beverage companies can attract more consumers in such a competitive market?

Tough competition, high customer exposure, emerging new brands, and lack of specialised beverage marketing agencies are some of the challenges facing beverage businesses today.

Small and medium beverage companies need to make an extra effort in promoting their companies to be found and get more clients.

Promoting your beverage company needs to be financially viable. TV ads, magazine placements, and radio spots definitely give a high return on investment, but it might not be ideal for every size of business.

Let’s take a look at some innovative and best marketing strategies for beverage companies.

COST-EFFECTIVE BEVERAGE MARKETING STRATEGIES

Google My Business:

It is a fact that people are using Google Maps to find the closest gas station, restaurants, stores or any business that can meet their needs. It’s a powerful medium for marketing, so make sure that your listing shows up high in your area for your particular field of business.

By doing this, you can acquire a significant amount of traffic, without spending much on advertising.

Google My Business is a credible way to establish your online presence and reach more potential customers who are looking for beverage companies in Milton Keynes and around.

Google Ads:

Spending some money to improve your online presence gives a good return on investment, and paid Google Ads, when well managed, does not cost too much. The amount you pay depends on the click-through rate and the competitiveness of your keyword.

With Google Ads, you will see more of the benefits of your online marketing efforts and get results for the amount of money you spend. You directly pay for relevant traffic to your website. It’s a powerful marketing tool for any beverage business.

Similar to organic Google Search, the choice of the keyword is very important for success. You can choose “best pale ale beer” if you want that people searching for pale ale beers gets directed to your page. As we specialise in marketing for the beverage sector in Milton Keynes, we can create a list for you and manage your Google Ads.

Focus on Customer Retention:

Acquiring new customers can cost six to seven times more than selling to an existing one. Don’t forget your previous customers when marketing a new product. Take stock of the leads you lost during previous campaigns and let nothing slip through the cracks.

Find a Niche Marketing Strategy:

You probably think that if you are a small brewery or wine producer, you probably can’t compete with the likes of larger companies.

Or can you? You can, if you follow a niche marketing strategy.

You can’t be all things to all people, so focus on a micro-market and be the best in what you do.

A good marketing strategy will reveal how you can achieve more within your niche market.

Optimise Content Marketing:

Content marketing can help you to showcase products and business values, and provide interesting information which is relevant to your potential customers. There are many platforms or channels where you can distribute your content online, such as your website, blog, social media pages and email newsletters.

Accedor specialises in marketing for beverage companies in Milton Keynes or in any other area your company covers.

CRM – Customer Relationship Management system:

For some, this might sound new and expensive, but most of the beverage companies are using CRM nowadays, and some of these systems are even free. These systems collect and organise information about your customer and prospects. It also connects to your website so you are notified when a new prospect or client is browsing your website, collecting the information you need and sends automated e-mails to those who will potentially buy something from you.

Accedor has long experience in implementing CRM for beverage companies, and we specialise in marketing for the beverage sector, so you can trust us to manage your marketing activities.

Build or Update Your Website:

Does your website look like it’s a blast from the past? The beverage sector is about the involvement of the customer with your product. An outdated, broken, or no website at all can quickly vent away that connection.

The first thing about beverage marketing is to think of your website as the face of your brand. For example, take a look at this project that ACCEDOR worked on. It perfectly represents the importance of a nice website.

Make sure your website looks professional, slick, and contemporary. Use interactive elements and educational content to inform the visitors about your products and to answer the questions they might have.

Use Social Media:

Most businesses are already using social media to interact with other business and customers and gain information. You can create a presence on all of the social media platforms, but you should try to focus on those with the highest traffic and best relevance for your business. It can take time to grow your social media audience, but if you are persistent, you will certainly reap the benefits.

Optimise Your Website for Search and Conversions:

Optimise your website for SEO and conversions, so it keeps sending you a healthy flow of business leads, even when your offices are closed. You’ll need to build a sales funnel and create landing pages to capture leads.

If you don’t know what SEO is, don’t worry. ACCEDOR will help you understand every aspect of SEO. Our professional marketers will guide through the whole process.

Speaking generally, SEO (Search Engine Optimisation), is the position (ranking in Google, for instance) of your beverage company website when someone is searching for something related to your products on the Internet. The list of websites you see as a result of your search can be paid or natural (i.e. organic, unpaid).
