Marketing to C-Stores
Regardless of your primary business, if Convenience Stores are a target customer or acquisition for your business, organization or firm then now is the time to increase your visibility to their decision makers.
How should you market to convenience stores?
If we split marketing into two categories: Traditional and Digital ( offline marketing and online marketing )
You really need to be doing both.
Being present to these decision makers in the c-store space where they are engaging is where you need to be.
And the fact is that they are everywhere. Everyone has their own preferences and you being everywhere ensures you’re in front of everyone.

Our strongest advice is to be running comprehensive online campaigns and publishing content to get found by decision makers when they search and to engage them by sharing your value proposition in ads that run on channels like LinkedIn where you can target the industry, companies, and job titles of target customers or acquisitions.
