Description

“Taking Stock: Assessing the Condition of Your Marketing Foundation” is designed to help solar installers determine the condition of your solar marketing program.

This training includes a lecture (plus slides) and an interactive tool to assess the current status of your company’s marketing program, branding and graphic elements, website and online assets, customer knowledge and profiles, and resources including team, budget, and outside assistance.

An increasingly competitive solar marketplace.

A recent EnergySage survey highlighted growing competition in the solar marketplace, “most (56 percent) installers facing off against at least 15 competitors.” According to the survey, “the majority of solar installers report their shoppers saw two to three quotes before making a purchase decision, signaling the rise of the increasingly savvy solar shopper.” This lecture is the initial step to determining the condition of your current marketing program assets to create a basis for competitive strength.

This course is part 1 of Identity3's 6-part "Build it Bright! Crafting Your Solar Marketing" Program. This training series was made possible by Energy Trust of Oregon, an independent nonprofit organization dedicated to helping utility customers invest in and benefit from energy efficiency and clean, renewable power.

Disclaimer: While the program was designed to address key marketing fundamentals relevant to marketing challenges experienced by most solar installers, not all the material presented will be applicable to every solar installer's marketing program.
