Media attention a must for SME's
May 15, 2012
A well known entrepreneur said businesses should be creative in pushing their products to the broader market, especially in times of crisis.
Pacita “Chit” Juan of Echostore said that unlike large companies SME's seldom are able to compete head on with large companies, particularly in traditional marketing tactics such as promos and discounts. Small businesses can overcome this, she says, by coming up with innovative ideas to get the word out about their products.
“Never compete on price. Someone will always be bigger than you and eat you up. Differentiate yourself from your competitors through other products or service features, never just on price.” Juan said on the sidelines of the Association of Filipino Franchisers Inc. (AFFI) seminar on introducing products to the media.
