  • Three (3) Buyer Segments:

How it helps

 

This would be your interactive-networking-tool for our industry.  It empowers Member Suppliers, exploring the market for Member Buyers, to broadcast their resources and delivery capabilities to a particular Member Buyer. Member Suppliers could respond to those inquiries initiated by the Member Buyer. Member Suppliers opting for a proactive approach must anticipate future demand of Member Buyers.  Proactive approaches, projecting anticipated demand, could include utilizing our marketing resources.  Create Documents using member management tool; reached from link at the Project Center Page.  These documents would detail those products, services, accessories and resources available to Member Buyers considering options for one of three types of projects: 

  • Three (3) Supplier Segments:
    • Residential Suppliers – Family Projects
    • Commercial Suppliers – Merchant Projects
    • Industrial Suppliers –     Floor Trade Projects

Proactive Efforts

 

Documents could be used during proactive, promotional efforts.  Member Suppliers would create documents that encourage Member Buyers to inquire about Member Supplier for a future project.  Member Suppliers eager to earn business of Member Buyers may proactively create documents, which promote their line of products, services, accessories or other unique, valuable resources. The proactive efforts of Member Suppliers, seeking to reach Member Buyers, may be initiated by creating documents, which include promotional information about the Member Supplier’s history, their products, services, accessories and other resources.  The document could discuss pricing, delivery and other information, which is useful in supporting buying decisions of Member Buyers. 

 

Reactive Efforts

 

Documents could be used reactively when Member Suppliers respond to Member Buyer requests for competitive bids on particular projects some of which may be time sensitive; others, long term.  Member Suppliers exploring the needs of Member Buyers may reactively respond to documents, which inform Member Suppliers about those requirements and expectations of Member Buyers.

 

Marketing Phases

 

Regardless of whether an approach, chosen to reach out to buyers, is a proactive or reactive one, such marketing strategies would each require a creative form of contact to captivate the attention of those particular Member Buyers, which have been identified and targeted for your campaign. Consider creating promotional documents that correspond to each phase of a marketing strategy:

  • Five (5) Marketing Phases:
    • Introductory Phase – Supply Promotional Documents
    • Proposal Phase – Submit Bidding Documents
    • Project Phase – Deliver Contractual Documents
    • Fulfillment Phase – Share Gratuitous Documents
    • Referral Phase – Offer Incentive Documents

The objective would be for either approach during each phase to result in Member Buyer targeted or identified to invite the Member Supplier to submit timely, competitive bids on projects specified by predetermined deadlines.  Ideally, efforts result in that Member Buyer awarding the contract to that Member Supplier presenting a strong, compelling case along with the most competitive bid.
