Marketing Tips

 

Marketing a Computer Time Sharing Services Business

Marketing a computer time sharing services business isn't as simple as it seems. To get noticed, you'll need to invest time, energy, and resources in an innovative marketing plan.

Still looking for a way to effectively market your computer time sharing services business? Unfortunately, there is a fine line between capturing buyers' attention and blending into the background.

What to know the characteristics that distinguish leading computer time sharing services businesses from the competition? Most of the time it's not the quality of their product offerings -- it's their ability to communicate granular marketing messages to their customer base.

Email Campaigns

How many people do you know who don't have an email account? Not many. What does that mean for your company? It means the odds are in favor of email campaigns actually connecting with customers. In many computer time sharing services businesses, the real challenge is compiling a substantive quantity of qualified email addresses. At Gaebler, we recommend buying mailing lists from professional, third-party providers. Purchased lists aren't the only source for customer contacts, but they can be used to create fast momentum for email campaigns and other initiatives.

Generating Buzz

Good buzz is a mythical creature in marketing circles. Although it's rumored to exist, it's hard to nail down. You've heard it said before: Word of mouth is the best form of promotion for products and brands. For a computer time sharing services business, buzz is a critical consideration in the marketing mix. The process begins with developing communication vehicles and mechanisms that invite discussion. Social networking and other online strategies can play a foundational role when they are performed in tandem with face-to-face interactions and industry networking.

Viral Marketing

Viral marketing is one of the most elusive marketing techniques in a small business owner's arsenal. By including viral elements in a campaign for a computer time sharing services business, the hope is that your brand and product line will take on viral qualities. Even though total control is impossible, the right actions at the right times can encourage the viral distribution of brand messages. Social media and other online vehicles can seed a viral marketing campaign, but you'll need to nurture their development through direct customer interaction as well as other techniques.
