Every business can grow better in a competitive environment and in order to survive in the environment, you need to constantly study your rivals and their strategies. We have compiled a list of a few of these strategies which will help you compete with your rivals in the event management business.
Regularly study their website and keep an eye on any new content they upload to their website. This will keep you posted on how they are increasing their outreach online. Pay a visit to their office and see how they deal with their clients and what sort of environment have they created for the clients.
Observe their staff and how they move in different situations. See if they have a special uniform for every special event or do they use the same uniform every time. Also, keep an eye out for how they get their business marketed in the locality because word-of-mouth marketing is the best tool of publicity.
One tricky way to keep track of how your rivals get clients is to keep an eye on their clients. If you know what kind of clients they are attracting, you will find out where they are focusing their publicity and you can get potential information.
Regularly keep comparing your prices with your rivals and assess where you can make changes to reduce your prices as compared to them. For this purpose, you will need to stay updated from your service providers like catering, sound system, multimedia, etc. so that you can adjust your prices accordingly.
If you bring significant changes to your venue’s decoration, you can also compete with your rivals. Try to pay attention to the small details. For example, arrange wall clocks inside your venues and link short surveys about your event with the check-in on Facebook. This is will not only engage your clients, but you will also get potential feedback for your performance.
The last thing is the most critical for the competition. Always stay communicative with your clients and even if they do not hire you for your services, keep updating them about your new prices and what new features you are adding to your whole system. If your clients remember you, they will definitely feel comfortable while contacting you for some other event as well.
