DapoXetine : I'm interviewing for a marketing position with a construction company. I have a few ideas for marketing, but I've never worked with a construction company before, the target audience is so different. Anyone have some ideas? I would be very very appreciative!! I've been researching all morning but curious to know more!!

Uploalemasp : depending on the central location of the company it may be useful to get in some local Chamber of Commerce in the surrounding areas, ofcourse a strong online presence is a must as the modern consumer/construction company customer consults the web today for way more resources than we have in the past, hope that helps

5metalleriew : The ad says buyer pays return shipping. Do I still have to if I didn't get the product I wanted?

itatuilmelf : Yes, we all think we are clever, but some really are. Like this one for a TV commercial......A father and son come home from fishing all filthy and stinky, the wife (mother) looks at them and says, "Those clothes are fit to be "TIDE". I sent that to P&G in Cincinnati, they wrote back and said they have an Ad agency in Chicago and not to write them again. Mine was politically correct, it made the men look like fools and the woman came to the rescue, so couldn't be that.

Gromisilsss : I am a market trader selling home goods and candles at a very low price but getting great returns. The items im selling pretty much sell themselves and i can always buy more stock when i want. I am only 21 years old and i have a full time job alongside this with no real business experience. I don't have enough money to buy a shop but would like to expand my business. What could be the next steps i take? Selling online ect and how do i do this? Thanks
I think you both misunderstood what I meant by "the products sell themselves". I meant that the quality of the products is of such a high standard that they are so easy to sell and the price that I am selling them at it is hard for people not to buy them. They are shop quality. :)

breakmotio : If you are thinking that you are selling products at low price then it`s your thinking. May be the buyer thinks that it has high cost. One more thing is quality. If your product quality is not fulfilling your customer`s desired quality then it can also be reason of your failure. I think you have to revise your quality and price strategy according to the market.

enurmouse : I am agree with lady kate in this regard that if you are focusing on quality then your customer will purchase your product either it is at higher price than others. People want quality instead of pricing because they are ready to invest in that product that is long live.
