Marketing Strategies & Analytics To Grow Your Business

Construction Marketing is an integrated digital marketing and advertising agency that exclusively serves the construction industry. Our team of marketing professionals understands the construction industry at all levels and will work with you and your team to get to know your firm, clearly establish goals, identify ideal customers, and establish a cost-effective marketing strategy that will generate real-world results. We have clients across the USA and are extremely knowledgeable of the needs of contractors, building product manufacturers, trade associations and service providers in the construction industry.

Different Strokes for Different Folks

As respected marketing practitioners for construction industry clients, we use marketing tools that properly align with the needs of our client’s offerings, marketing budget and business goals. For example, a small excavating firm that primarily is looking to get involved in local construction projects isn’t likely to benefit from a rigorous, data heavy approach. We know exactly who and where their target customers are and how to activate them – their modest marketing budget is best spent on the creative and descriptive marketing materials they need to attract the general contractors they hope to work with.

Conversely, a national manufacturer of building products with multiple product lines and distribution networks needs to use the full range of data and marketing analytics available to target, track and optimize their budgets. Sub optimal spending of even a fraction of these large marketing budgets could have a huge impact on bottom line results. This is why marketing analytics are so crucial for larger organizations as targeting, messaging, resource allocation and results simply must be understood and tracked year to year.

Developing A Marketing Plan

Your company is unique and your marketing plan should be too. For our clients that have a large budget and need to dominate in their industry, we offer in-depth marketing plans.
