Owning a tile company today requires the ability to appeal to target audiences and markets, whether you’re promoting your services locally, regionally, or even as an international brand. When you are in charge of a tile company, knowing how to efficiently manage your marketing finances can ultimately mean the difference between failure and success. The more familiar you are with managing marketing finances, the easier it will be for you to set and achieve your goals in the tile industry.



Set Goals

If you have a tile company, familiarizing yourself with the industry overall will help you to set the right goals. Currently, the tile installer market is worth more than $13 billion as of 2023. The more familiar you become with the tile installation market, the easier it will be for you to pinpoint and set worthy goals for any size of company or organization you currently own and operate.

Define Your Target Audience

Owning a successful tile business requires an understanding of the audience you intend to reach. Define the demographics you plan to target based on your location and the homeowners who own property near you at the time. Research local demographics to gain a better understanding of who you will be targeting with any new ad campaign you create and share with the world.

Seek Financing

In some cases, you may need to seek financing from an external source while building a marketing strategy for your tile company. A two-year bank loan currently has an average APR of 11.48%, which is important to keep in mind if you choose to go the route of a traditional bank loan. Whether you’re interested in crowdfunding, seeking assistance from VCs, or Venture Capitalists, or going the traditional financial route, you will need to research and compare your options before finalizing your decision.

Create a Local and Online Marketing Strategy

When you’re just starting with a tile company, you may want to stick with local advertising strategies. Network with local business owners, swap business cards, and even get to know the members of your community on a local level. Cross-promotions can go a long way if you’re a new business in a brand-new location.

Creating an official website and online presence with the use of social media is a must for tile companies today. Expanding your reach is imperative if you want to stand out among the competition near you. Promote your services by showcasing entire portfolios and using built-in ad platforms, such as Facebook Ads to get started.

Invest in the Right Software

If you want to streamline your operations as a tile company, and you’re interested in transitioning to an online platform, investing in the right software is a key decision you will need to make. Investing in the right MES, or Manufacturing Executive System, can increase workplace productivity and overall efficiency by between 10% and 20% in total. The right software can also make it much easier to stay on top of individual campaigns you launch to promote your services and products.

Work With a Local Marketing Firm or Expert

Working with marketing experts and firms can go a long way as a tile company owner. Firms can pinpoint specific channels to target while honing in on particular demographics they intend to reach. Working with a firm is also a way to monitor individual campaigns in real time.

Understanding the basics of marketing and managing marketing finances is key when you own a tile business or work in any industry today. The more familiar you are with common advertising practices and methods that are useful for tile companies, locally and online, the more likely you are to achieve success with your next campaign. By properly preparing and monitoring finances for campaigns, you can maximize your reach and optimize each ad you create and launch to promote your products and the services you offer.
