Traditional MSP marketing plans for attracting customers such as ads in print magazines, word of mouth, referrals and trade shows are in rapid decline. There’s no reason to lament these losses, however, as decision-makers are realizing that digital marketing campaigns are the best sources of lead generation.

Whether you’re reaching out to marketers because you simply don’t have the time — or because you want to hire a specialist external marketing department for the cost of a single employee — Lead to Conversion can help.

Why Marketing Your MSP Services Online is More Important Than Ever

The internet has made it possible for more people to start new businesses in the IT industry, ramping up the amount of competition for everyone. Many of these start-ups already use online marketing companies to boost their online presence and reach more potential customers.

Most IT experts are busy learning, implementing and refining new technology and services, leaving little time for marketing. However, procuring a pipeline of new clients is pretty much a full-time job, and neglecting it could seriously impact your bottom line.

MSP Marketing

With more companies outsourcing IT than ever, managed IT service business owners have a unique understanding of why using expert external departments makes so much sense. While you and your staff are busy anticipating the needs and improving and maintaining the IT operations of your clients, let our marketing team put the word out about how great you are at it.

Tech specialists also understand how much automation can help with streamlining processes and eliminating waste, but you might not know how to do it with marketing. Our team can help your decision-makers get more qualified leads and convert them into loyal customers.

MSP SEO

SEO should be one of the most crucial elements of a multipronged and effective marketing strategy. Many people assume content marketing is the most important aspect of search engine optimization. While it certainly helps to establish you as a thought leader, exposes you to more potential customers and keeps current clients happy, there’s a lot more to it. A well-constructed strategy for IT services marketing includes the following:

  • Schema markup
  • Page speed
  • Mobile-friendly
  • Authority, domain age and URLs
  • Blogging
  • Technical SEO
  • User experience
  • Backlinks
  • Headings
  • Analytics and reporting

Local SEO for IT Companies & MSP’s

Local SEO can be particularly useful for companies looking to climb to the top of search engine results pages. Lots of consumers now enter search terms like “managed IT services near me” or “local IT consultants” to find what they’re looking for. Your Google My Business (GMB) listing is a creative and highly effective way to get your name out there in front of people as they’re searching for your specialty.

In addition to optimizing your GMB profile, there are lots of other ways to tap into local search intent. Creating landing pages for every city and state you operate in, making sure your blog includes local search terms and geotagging are all excellent strategies to help you get ahead.

Social Media Marketing Strategy

Social media is an essential tool for sharing content with your customers, which helps to secure an emotional connection with your target market. Additionally, these channels are great tools for customer service, building a community and pulling data about the types of businesses and individuals that are using your services. You can also use them to promote webinars and Q&A sessions and for various other interactive marketing techniques.

Some of the social media channels you should be creating and sharing content on include:

  • Facebook
  • Instagram
  • LinkedIn
  • Twitter
  • YouTube

Social Media Advertising

Social media platforms like Facebook and Instagram let you promote your business so you get in front of your target audience. You can even create advertising campaigns using social media to entice new customers and keep your flooring company’s name fresh in the minds of existing customers. They’re also great platforms for sharing images of products and customer photos of new tile, wood flooring, and carpet installations.

Website Design

Web design is more important than you might realize for attracting new business. In today’s fast-paced and highly competitive marketplace, you need to make the most of every tool in your arsenal. Consumers are used to viewing and using big brands’ state-of-the-art websites and apps, so anything outdated or subpar is a major black mark and not a great first impression.

Email Marketing

Even though it’s one of the oldest tools in the book, a thoughtful email marketing campaign is a great way to stay fresh in the minds of current and past customers. Provided you don’t inundate people with generic, spammy emails and instead give them actionable and useful IT advice and guidance, you can generate referrals and retain clients using this tactic.

Conversion Rate Optimization

At Lead to Conversion, we understand that generating traffic to your website and optimizing conversion are two entirely separate things. However, SEO plays a crucial role in both aspects of your marketing strategy. You might be surprised to know what makes customers bounce and what makes them click through and fill out forms. Some of the ways we’ll help you optimize your website for conversions include:

  • Remove distractions
  • Make navigation intuitive and simple
  • Find ways to make converting as easy as possible
  • Improve CTAs
  • Add a live chat function to your site

MSP PPC Advertising

Our team can help you refine your current pay-per-click ad campaigns or set up an entirely new Google Ads account. When used properly, you can get your name in front of everyone searching for relevant keywords without spending any money. If you want to invest a little more in PPC ads, you can make instant gains. This can be particularly handy while you wait for SEO and social media strategies to pay off.

IT Services

Cloud Computing

Cloud computing has opened up the door for people who would never have been able to open businesses before. As such, there’s a seemingly exponentially growing market of people who require IT services for you to capitalize on.

IT Consulting

IT consulting is one of the oldest tech industries in the world, but it’s no less relevant than it was a decade or two ago. IT consultants need to find new and creative ways to get ahead of the competition now that there’s so much out there.

Cybersecurity

The importance of cybersecurity grows by the day, with criminals finding new, more complex ways of trying to attack businesses and steal data. As such, marketing cybersecurity services isn’t particularly complex — it just requires a lot of time and effort to maintain and refine.

SaaS

Software as a service, or on-demand software, is centrally hosted and licensed on a subscription basis. Lots of SMBs without large IT departments opt to use these services so they can entice and retain customers, as well as gather data, using apps.

Decision-makers can underestimate how much time is required for SaaS upkeep, which is where your business comes in. While you’re busy helping them make more money, we can help you to reach more new clients.
