It can be really tricky to be cloud hosting providers. Given the level of competition, plus the advertising noise made by others, it can be a dilemma for your business. Still, this is a task that you need to get over with well. You need to create a good first impression with your prospects, since this will determine whether you get new B2B leads or not. This is the challenge of many cloud computing firms, who are all dependent on the success of their marketing campaigns through online means. Yes, it is good to promote your business online, for the sake of better information dissemination. But, sometimes, it can actually backfire on you.
Remember, first impressions last. No matter how well your appointment setting efforts are executed, if you did something really bad in the past to clients or prospects, then you will not get any positive reaction from them at all. Getting their trust back as well as confidence in your business will be much harder than ever. This will take more than negotiation skills from your telemarketing team, if that is the case. To avoid such a headache, it pays for you to actually do your advertising and marketing right the first time. You only have one shot at getting a deal from a business prospect. With competition this intense, you really have to make it count.
Another point to remember is the term privacy. There is no such thing as privacy in today’s online world. Everything you do, say, or post online will be viewed by millions of people. While this is good for marketing, this can have a detrimental effect if the content you shared is of ‘unsavory’ nature. Heard the Paris Brown incident in England? She appears to be a good choice as Youth and Crime Commissioner, but her antics in Twitter got posted in national papers. This ultimately caused her downfall. Now, the police commission is investigating her for potential criminal offenses. It is that bad. And this is precisely the reason why you should be careful. You do not want to call potential sales leads, and they tell you that your cloud hosting services was racist or biased, right? It happened to other firms, and look at the mess they got into.
Basically speaking, you need to do your job right. With the online world very easy to spread information in, and at such speeds, you have to be careful of what you spread online. It is one thing to say what you want to say, but if your statements run counter (indeed cause uproar) to what your business stands for, you are just creating marketing headaches for your business. Take note that people are no longer basing their decisions on what you say alone. They consult other sources, like newspapers, online forums, blogs, online reviewers, and the like. You need to be sure that you create a consistent image for you and your business. This can make all the difference in your lead generation campaign.
