What is impacting your business success most?

Technology companies (probably out of necessity to self-fund or attract investment to develop and grow) are very sales focused. This means that often spend is centred on tactical acquisition, rather than differentiation marketing across the customer lifecycle.

Technology companies are great at presenting their offer in crisp, simple terms, but often don’t speak the language of their ideal customers. This is often because there is rarely someone with insight into the customers’ experience on the inside.

According to a recent Slideshare study, inefficient support is often the primary reason why up to 67% of customers cancel a technology subscription. This is a clear consequence of customer experience initiatives often being given lower propriety than acquisition.

For technology companies, a deliberate low barrier to entry facilitates quick and easy sales, but ensuring that customers fully understand and can utilise the features and benefits of the product is often overlooked.

Because of the way the industry has been established - predicated on trial and conversion to sale - there are inevitably challenges within the customer pathway, not least in retaining customers and moving a healthy number onto more expensive packages or advocate status.

Priorities for technology marketers

Branding & Storytelling

Your brand needs to speak to the needs and values of your audience. A compelling brand story taps into your audience’s emotions and aspirations, and communicates your business’s how, what and why in a visceral and memorable way.

Campaigns & Programs

Finding and engaging new customers in your target industries or from your ideal customer accounts, alongside communications across your customer lifecycle calls for creativity and a programmatic, data-led approach.

Content Strategy & Creation

We bring your unique story to life with compelling thought leadership and customer stories, producing information that the new generation of B2B buyers are using to assess products and services.

Customer Experience & Advocacy

Accelerating time to value for your customers so that their investments pay back rapidly leads to loyalty, advocacy and business growth. This needs tailored support and comms across land, adopt, expand and renew phases.

Velo works with technology businesses who are often deploying at significant scale:

  • Ed Tech, eLearning and InsurTech
  • Cloud/SaaS particularly those targeting HR, R&D, Sales, Marketing, Health & Safety, Planning, Operations and the C Suite
  • Managed IT services including wireless & mobility, IoT, collaboration, security (especially cybersecurity) and data analytics and planning platforms

Few technologies have a complete uniqueness and, even if they do, they will be quickly replicated. This means the product, its benefits and story have to be completely aligned and rooted in the customer experience. Successful technology companies that recognise that their customers are the product and begin to build a brand around them are the ones that will develop raving advocates and grow immeasurably.

Living up to the promise matters.
And that’s when we come in.
