Your MSP marketing must incorporate internet solutions for reaching target demographics. Avoiding this can significantly undermine competitive viability in the marketplace. Between SEO (Search Engine Optimization), SMO (Social Media Optimization), IoT (Internet of Things), and the proliferation of mobile web usage, the internet has crept from our desks into our daily personal lives.
Television is dead. Film isn’t quite there yet, but if you’ve spent any time at the movies lately, you know it’s definitely not in its golden age; big-budget special effects notwithstanding. Netflix knocked out Blockbuster. Well, billboards are to a degree effective because there’s still traffic; but have you looked across the lanes? When things get backed up, everyone retreats into their phones. They isolate themselves from society under the penumbra of a digital bubble.
With marketing designed specifically for the web, you give your MSP the ability to invade that bubble at the behest of the prospect. You can reach them in a non-invasive way. Especially when you’re courting bigger clients, you want to be sure however you reach them, it’s not obtrusive. Beyond the web, conventions and other areas of interaction where direct meetings can be facilitated are desirable— they’re just not always available. The best strategy today seems to be fully embracing an internet marketing paradigm.
Here are several benefits of a web-based MSP marketing strategy:
When you’re using SEO and SMO paradigms, algorithms traffic individuals with similarly aligned interests toward your online presence. It makes sense to work with an online SEO agency of some capacity for the maximization of outreach efforts. SEO agencies understand keywords, what formats are most appealing, vocabulary idiosyncrasies, linking parameters, HTML meta-tagging, and all that’s involved in digital marketing. Ubiquitous stats are available for use, and these allow digital marketing agencies to hone outreach efforts to a fine point which more effectively nets clientele interested in your products and services.
Social Media Exploitation
Part of the reason Mark Zuckerberg recently appeared at a congressional hearing involved Cambridge Analytica, who took data from users in order to manipulate the political process, ostensibly. Whether or not they were successful is a subject of debate. The issue congress dealt with was privacy. Facebook is presently a billion-dollar enterprise with most of the developed world using its services. That’s a lot of data. Granted, they’ve begun a new privacy protection initiative, but this doesn’t mean marketing via FB, Twitter, Gab, Minds, LinkedIn, Reddit, YouTube, and other social media outlets is defunct. The right agency can help you maximize your impact using such solutions.
Reduced Marketing Expense
Perhaps one of the most considerable advantages of using online digital marketing solutions is the reduced cost. Simply put: you pay less and get more. The caveat is: time. You need to plan for at least a year’s worth of online marketing strategy before you see the results you seek. You might see them sooner or later, but a year seems to be a pretty good “rule of thumb.”
Your MSP marketing stands to see greater success if you employ internet marketing solutions which exploit and incorporate increasingly effective avenues of outreach. Sometimes, sought results aren’t immediate, but with the web, your marketing materials are always out there.
