I am an owner of a young tech company that is looking to grow ( [url removed, login to view] ). Our service targets a very niche industry. We have a cloud-based SaaS solution for customers utilizing Microsoft cloud platform, Windows Azure.
The product, has been doing well: we have a decent feature set that is always expanding, there is traction with the customers and good amount of recognition in the industry. However, efforts to expose the product to the industry, have been handled solely by me, the owner of the company.
I am looking to partner with a person or a firm on a continuous basis to get help with:
- Writing and /distributing/ quality Press Releases (need one in a short-while and more forthcoming). This means that you not just write a press release, but know where to send it and can take calls regarding it from publishers & journalists
- Preparing letters of introduction to a number of industry insiders/experts
- Finding & building relationships with industry experts, bloggers, Microsoft employees, etc.
- Suggest ways to promote the company with social media
- Suggest ways to advertise & help build out marketing strategy
- Keep an eye on social media/blogosphere with respect to issues that relate to the product/industry
Candidate needs to be self motivated, energetic, go-getter, very tech savvy, comfortable with contacting various spectrum of professionals in a tech industry, fully proficient in English. Good understanding of marketing concepts, PR, promotion, web analytics, etc are important.
This is an open-ended project. I will always need some marketing assistance on an on-going basis. However, I do not believe I need someone full time.
I am an extremely strong writer with an excellent background in marketing and public relations. I'm sure I would be a great fit for a long term relationship with your company. Kat
