Marketing Tips

 

Marketing a Computer Telephony Business

Trying to market a computer telephony business? It's a crowded marketplace, but with dedication and persistence, great marketing can help your business outperform larger competitors.

The promotional strategy for a computer telephony business has changed dramatically over the past twenty years.

In some businesses, marketing takes a back seat to sales and operations. That's a mistake because without marketing, your brand messages aren't being heard. On the upside, great marketing is a real possibility for a computer telephony business willing to adapt its strategy to the demands of the marketplace.

Measurement & Evaluation

Performance is the ultimate measure of quality. You can improve the quality of your B2B and B2C efforts by considering professional mailing lists provided by established vendors. That's just one of the ways computer telephony businesses may be able to increase the impact of their marketing tactics. However, there are no substitutes for measurement and evaluation mechanisms. A robust measurement and evaluation process should include metrics that can be monitored on a monthly, weekly or even daily basis. Designed to monitor marketing efforts on a campaign-by-campaign basis, these metrics can be used as a baseline for strategic planning. Simple quantitative tools are a good start. However, computer telephony businesses frequently go outside of the organization for expertise.

Social Media Monitoring

Brand advocacy is a buzzword in marketing circles. What does it mean? Using consumer-oriented platforms to encourage customers to create user-generated content about your products and company, typically through social media. However, social media also has a dark side -- negative mentions. All computer telephony businesses are especially vulnerable to negative exposure through social media. To counter negative social media, you'll need to monitor your brand's online presence and enter the conversation, redirecting negative discussions toward more positive topics.

Do We Really Need A Logo?

Having a strong logo for a computer telephony business is a big deal. We live in a visual world and logos are tangible expressions of your organization's key messages. Logos aren't something that can be changed overnight so it's important to put some thought into logo design. With a lot riding on a logo, it's worth the investment to hire a professional marketing and design firm for your logo needs.
