IT services SacramentoOf “Style” And “Substance”

Your IT marketing needs to marry style and substance in a sort of harmonious balance that is internally complimentary. Unfortunately, in modern times, people tend to go one way or the other. When you consider the style aspect of things, one place in particular practically lives out this reality. Have you ever been to LA? This area of the country is the original “style over substance” crèche. This is where that concept was born, nourished, and released on the world. As a matter of fact, LA has capitalized on the “style over substance” motif so hard that they’ve managed to mash the minds of many film enthusiasts. If you don’t believe that, just go watch one of the Transformers movies. There’s plenty of style, but what substance? Here’s their lesson: there are good guys and there are bad guys… and there are helicopters. (more…)

The biggest mistake that many managed service providers make when it comes to their marketing is they don’t dedicate enough resources to it.

MSP MarketingThe Right Formula

IT marketing companies should offer clients services tailored to meet their needs. Granted, you want clients to purchase packages. If they neglect to get something like, say, BDR support, there’s a very real possibility their data could be lost and you get blamed even though it’s clearly their fault for not sourcing the right kind of support beforehand.

IT marketingWhy Restrict Clients?

IT marketing can’t just be one-dimensional. It can’t just be two-dimensional, either. Three-dimensional? Well, that’s getting better, but it’s still not quite at the point of maximized effectiveness. Proper marketing in IT has to be of the four-dimensional variety. It has to extend throughout time. It’s not enough to be visible, tangible, and effective. It’s got to continuously draw in potential clientele.

This means that an effective campaign will have a multi-tiered approach that courts clients from more than one angle. It will incorporate known marketing techniques and new ones. It will avoid those techniques which are beginning to wane, and court those beginning to catch on. (more…)
