Cloud Solution Strategy Workshop

Accelerate Your Growth in the Cloud World

Are you struggling to justify the importance of your value-added offerings? Do you want to increase your revenues in the new cloud market? Neural Impact's exclusive Cloud Solution Strategy Workshop is for technology companies just like yours!

 

Many technology companies have invested in and launched many innovative new cloud based solutions. However while their technology is bleeding edge, their sales and marketing process are not.

True Cloud

Cloud services consumers want to know how your solutions will help their business discipline (such as marketing or sales) and prefer to be taught about a product rather than sold one.

Moreover, consumers go through 60% to 85% of the decision making process before contacting the seller. Why? Because they want to first educate themselves, research products online, and remain anonymous while doing so.Therefore, direct, face-to-face selling methods are useless in the digital marketplace. They should be replaced with landing pages that cater to Buyer 3.0's biases and emotional triggers.

Sharka will teach the workshop participants how to create differentiation offerings and pricing approaches that will maximize and accelerate the acquisition process. Attendees will implement the concepts in a direct, practical setting.

Competing in the Cloud Market

Your company must prioritize vertical product offerings. Departments, organization-wide, should thoroughly understand the importance of online selling. Product strategists and marketers need to develop industry-specific minimum value propositions (MVP) that cater to Buyer 3.0.
Just as importantly, your go-to market approach should change. Persona marketing and audience segmentation will take centerstage. Marketing professionals can take advantage of the many online tools that track important data about website visitors and social media users.
Lastly, pricing strategies should focus on your product's differentiated value and cater to the way that digital consumers like to make purchases. For example, lump-sum payments for products are a thing of the past. Instead, cloud buyers like to make payments on a weekly or monthly basis.
