Four Ways for FMS Organizations to Bring in More Business
I’m sure you will agree when I say facility management comes at a great price.

You will also agree with me saying that FM services require continuous innovation and marketing.

Hence, let me share a question that has always troubled me.

If my facility management functions are always going to costly then how can I bring in revenue and more business through them?

Apparently, I have found just the right answer?
I’ll be sharing the same in the same article. ​
However, before I’ll give you the answer let’s talk about the two ways how FMS marketing works; operational marketing and service marketing.
Operational marketing deals with conducting FM functions for the least cost in the fastest time along with maintaining the highest quality of work.
While, on the other hand, service marketing, is based on relationships and values, that may be used to market a product or service.
Now that you understand how FM marketing works, I’ll be sharing answers by expanding these two entities.
Let’s dive into the first one.

1. Service Marketing - Build Reputation Through Utmost Customer Satisfaction

Customer-focused facilities management processes drive brand value. A good relationship with customers based on values like trust, commitment, and accountability allows an organization to add value to its customers.
A good customer relationship with customers enables organizations to add value to the facility management service it provides.
However, as globalization, customer power, and market maturity have created intense competition in the market, a new way of adding value is needed.

This is specifically evident in the field service management industry. But by building a relationship with a firm it is possible to differentiate yourself from other competitors.

Service marketing has a much broader approach, with employees in the numerous departments in your company develops relationships with their opposite numbers in the customer firm.

The non-financial benefits of service marketing include:
  • Reference – The facility management industry often depends on others to give references. Large and significant customers make more desirable referees.
  • Referral — You can earn customers through case studies and journal articles. For example, if you work for a high-profile customer, their status will have a positive impact on your potential customers.
  • Learning and innovation — customers who are always innovating in their space will help you create ideas, which you can then use when working for others.

2. Operational Marketing - Achieve Digital and Sustainable Practices in Businesses
