Promoting a “Green” Business

Environmentally friendly or “Green” products have become a large part of our society today.

Not only are these products and services beneficial to society but they are essential for our environment. As the demand for green products continues to grow, marketing is an important factor in determining success for your environmentally friendly business.

Market Environmentally Friendly

If you are promoting a green business it is important to encourage the use of these products. That is why using recycled paper is a great option for business cards, brochures and posters and will give your business a positive image.

Market in the Right Place

You will want to market to consumers who are going to use your product. Local farmers markets and organic grocery stores are excellent examples of businesses that have the right target market for you. Connecting with other green businesses will allow you to work together to promote each other’s businesses or services. Marketing online is also a great method of advertising for a go green company. It is both environmentally friendly and allows you to target the appropriate audience for your product or service.

Get Involved in the Community

There are some great ways that you can get into the community to promote your product or service. Attending festivals and events in the area allows you to connect with local residents and show them your product. Offering free samples or demonstrations of your product is an excellent way to show off your product and is likely to entice people to make purchases and spread the positive word. This also creates a positive public image for your company.

Success as a Go Green Company is not just about environmentally products and pamphlets. The entire company must encourage and believe in the business. This starts with employees and managers on all levels who work together and practice sustainability. Marketing these practices and involving yourself and your business in the local community is a great mix for promoting a successful green business.
