In today’s competitive technology landscape, Software Resellers play a crucial role in delivering tailored solutions that meet specific customer needs. Sales and customer support can consume most of your resources in day-to-day operations. Without a large marketing budget or team behind you, getting your message to your target audience can be overwhelming. Here are 4 marketing hacks for the busy Software Reseller to make the most of your marketing investments.

1. Follow best practices for top website performance

Ensure it’s professional with high resolution graphics, it is easy to navigate, and clearly communicates your Value Proposition. It is shocking how many websites in the software reseller space use images with blurry graphics and have broken links. Pay attention to the details to build trust. Pro Tip: Schedule a reminder in your calendar to run scans regularly on your website to address any broken links.
  • SEO Optimization: Use search engine optimization (SEO) strategies to increase your visibility online. Use tools like Google Keyword Planner to find key find keywords relevant to your services, location and industry and use them throughout your website and content.
  • Content Marketing with the Help of Artificial Intelligence (AI): Regularly publish blogs and case studies that demonstrate your expertise and provide value to your audience. This not only builds credibility, but also helps with SEO to get your page ranking higher on a google search. Pro Tip: You can fast track the creative process in content creation by using AI to create the first draft of your blog or case study with a simple prompt.

Social media platforms and email marketing are powerful tools for reaching a broader audience and engaging with potential clients. Here is how you can reuse content from your website and traditional marketing efforts to create cohesive messaging:

  •  Work Smarter Not Harder: Look at all your marketing efforts in terms of campaigns to avoid making content in silos. The graphics and copy you’ve created for a flyer can be repurposed and shared across your social media, email promotions, blog posts, and other traditional marketing. It is a great way to get the most out of your assets while creating a cohesive campaign to reach your target audience. Pro Tip: Ensure every message has a clear call-to-action (CTA).
  • Use AI: Making content is time consuming. Use AI to repurpose any text for various marketing assets by using simple prompts. Pro Tip Example: Type, “create a social media post from this blog “and then paste the text the in the AI prompt field.
