IT Marketing: Multitasking is Key

A successful marketing campaign requires that you use two or more tactics to reach your prospective clients. Multitasking lets you approach prospective clients through several avenues so that you reach a variety of clients in the ways that appeal to them most.

Targeting

Try Numerous Tactics

From postcards to telemarketing to Internet ads, make sure that you try several different avenues to reach prospective clients. Not everyone will read a postcard, but they may respond to a personal call about your services.

Evaluate Your Success
