Marketing technology and software is no easy task. How do you market something to B2B companies that is constantly changing? How do you build content that matters to customers?

Tech Marketing Challenges

The technology and software market is booming worldwide, but it definitely comes with challenges, such as:

  • Competition - With so many tech companies, how can you get noticed in a crowded market?
  • Branding - How approachable and personal is your brand?
  • Differentiation - Whether you’re selling a product or service, you have to communicate what separates you from your competitors. What client experience or benefits do you deliver?

More Than Just Writing a Monthly Blog

Original Video Content

People are visual beings. And sure enough, video has taken over the digital space. In our previous blog on 2019 video marketing statistics, we learned that 82% of consumer web traffic will be video by 2020. 

So while your technology is probably complex, a short video can help people understand your product (i.e. walkthrough, demo, ongoing training). 

4 in 5 consumers find demo videos helpful (HubSpot).

Purpose-driven Content

Plan out your prospects’ journey with the goal of converting them to customers. Here’s an example of how you can structure a blog marketing strategy:

  • Blog article #1: 5 Reasons Why You Should Use Cloud Technology
  • Blog article #2: How to Choose the Right Cloud Platform for You
  • Blog article #3: How You Can Get the Most Out of Cloud Technologies
  • Blog article #4: When is the Right Time to Move to the Cloud

Don’t forget to provide a clear next step or call-to-action at the end of each piece.
