Things A Caterer Can Do To Gain A Competitive Edge

So catering’s the game.

How does chick fil a catering win that game?

Well that’s precisely what we’re going to talk about.

First, let’s use a bit of common sense. If you are going to have a leg up on the competition, what’s the most obvious thing you’ve got to nail down.

Price.

I don’t care how much a potential customer likes you. If you’re price is not right, then they will go elsewhere.

The problem now becomes…

What’s the right price?

If you have to ask it means you haven’t narrowed down you target audience.

That’s one of the main reasons to figure out your target audience!

They will have a “right” price.

You see, if you don’t target your audience, your audience will be full of people wanting cheap catering, expensive catering, or middle of the road cost catering.

You see my point?

Then what you’ll end up doing is only selling to 1/3 of your audience.

That’s 2/3 in wasted effort, time, and money!

So to summerize, the things a caterer should do to gain a competitive edge are first, figure out your target audience. Second, pick a price that target audience wants.

Then next thing a catering company needs to gain a competitive edge is to have a professionally built website.

Not just any old website.

One that shows off your bright side.

You need to have a place where your target audience can go to get all the information they need to make the decision to call.

Use your common sense.

What do you look for when you shop for a service? Price? Reviews?

Basically, get a website built by a reputable service and put those things on it.

Done.

You will now be ahead of the game.

Till next time…keep it real.
