Marketing to health food stores

With our list of health food stores, your business can access high-value decision makers with a need for your product or service – and use direct marketing channels to get in touch with them.

A good direct marketing campaign centres around the prospective customer and how your business, products or services can make their lives easier.

Direct marketing is usually geared towards directing prospects to perform a specific action – such as visiting your website or booking an appointment.

This approach helps you to communicate directly with the contacts from your list of health food stores to:

  • drive sales and conversions
  • test the appeal of your product or service
  • provide potential customers with valuable, compelling content

Email marketing to health food stores

Email marketing campaigns are a very effective way of connecting with prospective customers because it is measurable, cost-effective and direct.

It is easy to reach customers over email because the majority of your prospects will already check their inboxes every day.

Using low-cost (or even free) email marketing tools, combined with a B2B email database, businesses can send persuasive and attractive email messages to a large list of health food stores within moments.

Thanks to simple drag and drop templates on most email marketing platforms, it is easy to achieve a great marketing email even if you are inexperienced.

Most software also comes with in-built analytics and measurement tools that help you to track how your emails are performing over time.

Telemarketing to health food stores

Telemarketing is an effective method of targeting local health food stores due to the personal, interactive nature of telephone calls.

When telemarketing is carried out with thought, care, and the right B2B telemarketing data, it can be very effective. DiscoverOrg found that 75% of executives are willing to make an appointment or attend an event based on marketing calls.

B2B telemarketing is particularly important because the sales made in this market tend to be high-value and complex.

Having a representative available to answer questions and gather more information about the needs of prospects in real time helps the customer to feel more secure in their purchase decisions.

Do you want us to market to your list of health food stores instead?

Sometimes a business does not have the time, staff, or resources to carry out their own email or telemarketing campaigns.

That’s why we offer managed B2B email marketing campaigns and managed B2B telemarketing campaigns to our clients when they purchase a list of health food stores from us.

Saving time is a key benefit of our managed marketing campaigns.

Instead of putting all of your energy and resources into implementing and monitoring your marketing you can leave it in the hands of our experienced team, leaving you free to handle the day-to-day running of your business.

If you choose one or both of our managed services you will have access to our in-house team of professional copywriters, designers, telesales representatives and campaign planners.

Access to an experienced marketing team ensures that the campaign delivered on your behalf looks great and drives conversions.

Furthermore, working with our team allows you to gain fresh perspective and opinions on your business, products and services.

Postal marketing to health food stores

More Than Words does not currently run a managed direct mail service.

If you would prefer to outsource your postal marketing campaigns, our business to business mailing list (of which this is a part) can be supplied to and used by 3rd party mailing houses.

Speak to your account manager for more advice on finding and using a mailing house.

Selling to health food stores

Whether you are targeting large chains or small local shops, successful selling to the contacts on your list of health food stores is reliant on your standing out from your competition.

Over the past few years there has been a significant shift in how retailers view suppliers. Many stores are moving away from trusted suppliers and showing more interest in smaller businesses and entrepreneurs.

One of the main reason for this is the idea that entrepreneurs bring innovation and variety to stores – a way for retailers to set themselves apart in a competitive market.

For businesses selling products or services to health food shops this means identifying what you can offer that will help your customers to keep their place in the market.

This list is surprisingly varied for modern health food stores, which have come a long way from the basic offerings of supplements and trail mix they were previously renowned for.

Many stores are taking advantage of the increased popularity of alternative food and medicines, while for others environmental issues have helped them to carve out their own niche.

Many health food retailers provide allergy testing, organic food or aromatherapy oils and herbs – or even just take a strong stance on green issues in their marketing.

Other angles to consider in marketing to your list of health food stores include:

  • where and how your products are made – consumers are very interested in where their food comes from and how ethical it is,
  • what makes your product or service unique – perhaps you use an unusual manufacturing process or your ingredients come from the local area, and
  • authenticity – health food stores are all about going back to basics so the more authentic your business and product/service, the better.
