It doesn't matter if you have a small and average mining company. Let's say you're selling copper and another average mining company is also selling copper.

A pile of copper from your company or the competition will practically look the same. How do you make sure your customers buy from you instead of from another brand? This is where smart and effective marketing strategies can make a huge difference.

Meeting Customer Demands

Ore buyers like any other consumers looking for materials for production purposes generally consider four factors - quality, quantity, delivery and price. In order to win over the right target market, you need to strategically sell your product focusing on the aforementioned factors.

More and more customers favour eco-friendly giveaways over traditional promotional products. If you're a mining business that wants to effectively promote your commitment to sustainable mining, here are eco-friendly marketing strategies you should try:

Incorporate an eco-friendly business strategy

It's not enough that your company embraces green marketing. To successfully send the right message to the right people, you should also consider creating a business strategy with a focused eco-friendly selling point. That might mean altering your product, service or business practices to be eco-friendlier.

In other words, you need an eco-friendly selling point for your mining business. For example, marketing your company as sustainable is a great way to differentiate your brand from the competition. Other key selling point phrases for eco-friendly marketing you might want to incorporate in your updated business strategy include low waste, non-toxic, recycled, biodegradable and low energy among others.

Embrace online marketing over offline marketing

While you shouldn't completely ditch direct mails or printed advertising, it might be best to allot more of your energy on online marketing.

Online or e-marketing isn't only eco-friendlier, it's also much cheaper all around. For example, it's cheaper to invest in an online banner ad than printed ads. You save money and produces less printed waste thereby reducing your negative impact on the environment.

You may also want to take advantage of social media marketing to reach more customers online.

Get connected with environmental causes and charities

Getting connected with environmental causes and charities is another excellent marketing strategy. It's easier to push sustainable mining when your company is associated with a local environmental cause. Joining or donating to organizations that plant trees, for example, will massively boost your mining company's appeal.
