Your MSP marketing is more effective if there’s proper input. There’s an old saying: you get out what you put in. Well, if you don’t put good ingredients into your marketing paradigm, then it won’t be as “effective” as it could be. You’ve got to produce content that’s enabled for success from the outset.
Tactics to Facilitate Good Production
Some of the “ingredients” which most define effective content will include the approach you take when designing it. Others will include metrics and shifts in the market. Consider these tips:
Determine What Types of Content Best Match Your MSP
Your MSP marketing campaign is wasted if it concerns aspects of the tech industry that your business doesn’t have involvement with. Quantum computing is interesting, but what does that mean to your target demographic?
Having a blog post about tech trends isn’t a bad idea, but you need to find some way of relating it back to the products or services your company provides. A good rule of thumb is to build outreach around a unique value proposition which draws a distinction between you and other options in the area.
Design Content Production Schedules You Follow Closely
Once you know the core concentration of operations you need to focus on, your next step is going to be putting together a schedule of some kind. You’ve got to stick to that schedule.
Also, be sure to make it realistic. Don’t commission 80 blog posts a week. You only really need around 30 a month, maybe even as few as sixteen. Different conventions here will be more or less effective depending on the size of your operation.
Monitor Results to Determine Effectiveness, Tweak as Necessary
You need to keep your finger on the pulse of content effectiveness. Do blogs get read? What kind of interaction can you expect? Will your blog be shared? How long do people dwell on your page? Keep relevant metrics, and augment as necessary.
Create Content Around Relevant Factors Pertaining to Clients and Markets
The market will shift. Technologically speaking, there are always going to be new provisions out there which some MSPs will jump on immediately. This isn’t always the best idea. Remember Google Glass? That folded quick and seemed like a sure thing.
Savvy tech people were wise enough to hedge their bets, as the saying goes. You need to do the same with content. Build it around that which you know is relevant to your clientele and local market.
Streamlined Content Production
Your MSP marketing team should create relevant content around factors which actually affect the market, monitor content effectiveness, put content production on a clear schedule that is adhered to, and ensure content aligns with core prerogatives. Such measures have a high likelihood of increasing content effectiveness.
