In this episode, we talk to Adam O’Leary who is President and Owner of Encite International, a full-service, boutique marketing and advertising agency based in Denver, Colorado, who are committed to building great brands and strategic marketing plans and often work with Mining companies to promote their brand, products and services.

This is an informative, invaluable episode for all mining professionals who wish to understand more about how branding and marketing in the mining works and how important it is in building a mining company. We talk about how mining companies can improve their marketing and branding, and how mining can improve its image overall. We also discuss how video is used in marketing and how you can effectively market big ticket items.

KEY TAKEAWAYS

  • Many industrial companies, including mining companies, believe that marketing is not as essential part of their plan. Since their product is often not generally available to the public in the traditional way, mining companies see marketing as unnecessary. 
  • Adam has learned over time that this viewpoint is incorrect. Mining companies also need to communicate with their audience or customer base, and they need measurable results.
  • Traditional sales techniques do work in mining, such as phone calls, sales pitches and meetings etc. But there are more efficient methods of reaching a wider audience in a swifter way.
  • When marketing big-ticket items that sometimes run into the millions of dollars, it’s important to remember that there is no point-of-sale. There is no impulse-buy factor to consider. Brand awareness and consistency are the factors that instead drive sales to people who are already in the market for such goods.
  • Mining needs to work hard on improving its environmental image. Putting together an efficient programme that displays prominently its ability to embrace recycling and geographical regulations, is the keystone to improving its perception.
  • Video production is something that Encite have been working in more when it comes to mining. The approach so far has been to make the industry seem more personal and personable. It’s all about humanising the sector.
