14BUILDERS' DIGEST| OCTOBER-NOVEMBER-DECEMBER 2010WWW.BATC.ORGMarketingMarketingA Recipe Made by Members toSatisfy Your Marketing Appetite.Events are a strong com-ponent of our marketingstrategy, because theyallow us to truly interactwith our customers - bothhomeowners and members of the trades.We take advantage of heavier traffic during salesevents by bringing a culinary chef into our stores todemonstrate specialty products, like coffee systems andsteam cooking. Customers see these new types of prod-ucts in action and can start considering how these newproducts could benefit their life.An upcoming fundraiser held in our store not only willearn us positive exposure, but nearly 200 people -- whomight never have checked us out otherwise -- will comethrough our doors. Customers feel good about doingbusiness with us because we support the community.But getting people in the door is only half the battle.The time we get to spend with them is limited, so wereally do our best to leverage it. This involves everythingfrom keeping the stores clean and welcoming to creatingmultiple touch points through updated promotional dis-play materials and high-definition TVs that stream ourcontent. Our stores are one of our greatest assets, so wefocus on getting as much from them as possible. INGREDIENTPROVIDEDBY:Carla Warner,Warners'Stellian
