  • In the service provider space for SMB Brand is the most important element of gaining market share. Without awareness customers do not know you exist. Without simplicity of service, the customer will not be able to cross the chasm from locally installed applications to a new paradigm of subscription based services and without differentiation, you will become one in a sea of offerings that are quickly commoditized. Use the brands that are well known to familiarize your potential customers with the business you are involved with. Don’t talk about virtualization if what the customer understands is a lower cost, simpler alternative to locally run apps. With products from Citrix you can also take advantage of the fact that running Windows apps in a Mac environment is also feasible with a subscription service.Citrix Referral for OnlineSelling to the SMB means reaching out to where they are. In the U.S. for instance media such as Fox News is one of the best collection points for managers of businesses who have the spending authority to bring SaaS into the business. Finding the right medium and media for your specific market will determine your success in reaching your potential customersFinally, viral marketing techniques are critical to success in 2009 and beyond. Therefore it is absolutely essential that you engage in electronic media and forums to optimize the views that you will receive. By practicing common Search Engine Optimization techniques, you will find customers driven to your company site and to your products.
