Why IT promotion?

Unwillingness to invest in marketing leads to losses and the closure of even promising projects. Meanwhile for the expansion of business it is necessary to attract new customers, to increase sales. Launching advertising campaigns and promotion by your own forces, without the help of specialists, is undesirable. There is a chance of draining the budget and not getting any results.

You must create the need to purchase the product, and for this a whole complex of measures should be applied. Marketing for IT companies takes into account the complexity and intangibility of services and products. To make the client understand their benefits, marketers are required to compose a proposal in simple language, using a moderate number of terms.

Promotion in the IT-sphere is a set of marketing activities that are aimed at increasing the company’s scale, market share and brand awareness. Many companies that are engaged in testing, information security, software development, implement business applications, but do not pay proper attention to informing consumers about their services and products.

Difficulties of selecting an IT-company by the customer

Marketing for it-companies means that the customer’s criteria for choosing an IT-service provider or product are extremely vague. He wants a ready-made solution, not a description of methods. Reviews and testimonials help form the right idea.

The more clients leave feedback on information portals, Maps, feedback sites, and the faster the negative feedback is dealt with, the more credibility the company will gain. Having video testimonials also increases loyalty.

Reaching customers when promoting an IT-company is done at offline events (seminars, mitaps, conferences). To encourage the client to choose a particular solution (company), it is necessary to demonstrate their effectiveness. Publication of cases with examples, before/after results, own findings and failures increases the interest of target audience.

How to set goals and benefit from competitors’ experience

The company management should have a measurable, specific and achievable goal, for example, to increase traffic by n percent or increase the conversion rate of the site by a certain percentage, to receive a certain number of leads each month, etc. In order to realize your plans, you need to develop a content strategy, set out benchmark KPIs, create a recognizable image of the product (company), choose the mechanics and working formats of promotion.

Any promotional activity begins with an analysis of competitors and the market. The IT sphere implies general technological savvy of both sellers and buyers. Competitors, in order to promote, have previously conducted market research and have strengths and weaknesses, and work with identified triggers of the target audience. By analyzing competitors’ experiences, you can avoid mistakes and use ready-made solutions.

How to find your client

As a rule, this is not an easy task for IT-companies, because the audience is quite diverse. Some people choose products, others decide to pay for them. Most consumers and users don’t want to know anything about how “it works” at all. They care about getting a concrete result that solves problems and simplifies life.

The success of an IT company’s advertising depends on the accuracy of defining the portrait of the customer. Content, list of services, selling texts, blogging in social networks are based on knowledge of customer needs.

Different pages are provided for different groups of clients. The product should be tailored to the needs of a specific CA segment! Persuasion will require thinking through a communication strategy, selecting effective advertising channels and creating a clear marketing plan in accordance with the objectives of informing, persuading or reminding.
