Your MSP business will have more market viability if you have known best practices incorporated into outreach. There are different sorts of outreach with varying levels of success. Consultation can be necessary for your MSP to find the proper balance.
Generalized Best Practices to Consider
That said, there are a few things you can do to get the results you seek more quickly. These include the following:
Know Your USP, and Market It Properly
A unique selling proposition (USP) is going to position your MSP business specifically when compared against other tech companies of a similar kind. You want a USP which takes into account the expenses of customers.
What are specific customer pain points? How does your MSP address them? What specifically do you do that causes you to outshine the competition? Answer these questions, and incorporate associated answers into your USP.
Understand Your Audience; If You Don’t, Learn Them
You need to know who you are marketing to. This is more complex than it sounds. You need to know your demographic, what kind of spending they’re likely to do, what level of market share you should reliably expect, their pain points technologically speaking, and when they’re most likely to interface with outbound marketing materials.
There’s a lot of information to keep straight here. It makes sense to work with marketing groups who have made MSP outreach their specialty. You need to communicate with your audience digitally first of all, and in person, when there are expos or the like. You can’t communicate with them if you don’t understand them. Learn everything about them you possibly can.
Define KPIs to Help You Determine Site Traffic Increase
Key Performance Indicators, or KPIs, will differ per MSP–though certainly there are general commonalities. Determine what pieces of information are communicative KPIs, and use them to determine if your marketing outreach measures are increasing site traffic, having no effect, or for some reason slowing it down. KPIs help you determine how effective your marketing budget is.
Sales Funnels, Conversion Rates, and Sustainable Campaigns
Sales funnels need to move prospective customers toward conversion. KPIs pertaining to sales funnels and conversion rates help you determine when marketing tactics are working, and which sort of outreach campaigns produce the most conversions. Multiple funnels and campaigns may be necessary to find balance.
Establishing Marketing Outreach with Known Best Practices
There’s a much higher likelihood of increased conversion rates when you use KPIs to help maximize sales funnels and conversion rates, design effectively sustainable outreach campaigns, put measures into place which increase site traffic, know your audience, and have a well-marketed USP. This is a generalized marketing checklist; enhance it with unique operational features describing your MSP business as necessary.
