Your target for this channel is not your customer but your partner Long sale cycle (3 to 6 months, sometimes even more), but after 2 months you usually know if the deal will close Example: Spotify and Deutsche Telekom Access to the right person in the organization is worth gold; expand your industry network!

At the beginning, you will have to do it no matter what you sell, because it‘s the best learning It‘s an expensive channel; monitor your funnel metrics and your ROI constantly Example: Groupon acquiring merchants You might have to adapt your pricing for this channel

POPULAR CHANNELS – DO’S & DON’TS Trade Fairs Setting up a stand on trade fairs to show and selling your product to visitors. “Direct sales on steroids“ – you reach many leads in a short time It‘s also an expensive channel (registration, travel, stand set up, employees) Examples: Marketing agencies, development agencies, software vendors Do your homework: lookup the list of atendees and arrange meetings in advance
  14. 14. POPULAR CHANNELS – DO’S & DON’TS Search Engine Optimization Improving your position on search engine for specific keywords Two worlds – on-site and off-site optimization. Always do on-site More difficult that it seems – go for long-tail keywords, focus on a few Example: All mayor online stores If you do it, go all in – if you‘re not on the first page it won‘t help

  16. 16. POPULAR CHANNELS – DO’S & DON’TS Display Ads / Affiliate Marketing Placing banner ads on other websites Campaign-driven: you need a high ad budget (4-digit U$ to get started), plus costs of ad design and campaign management Different models (from less to more attractive): CPM, CPC, CPA, CPS Example: Online fashion stores It’s important to optimize ad placement, ad copy and landing page
  17. 17. POPULAR CHANNELS – DO’S & DON’TS Public Relations Get your company or product featured on different Media Do it only if you can afford it. It helps more with branding than bringing actual customers Use an agency to reach mainstream media, pitch to the tech press yourself Example: Cumplo.cl Be prepared for inbound press requests – have all materials and contacts ready
