Effective content for tech pros is:
Interactive: Interactive content has
more power to convert buyers — in
fact, it converts buyers moderately or
very well 70% of the time, compared
to just 36% for passive content.
Simple: A major barrier cited by 8 in
10 ITDMs is being able to find quality
information that is not “overloaded”
with jargon and confusing wording.
We know how technology professionals engage
with content, but we don’t know:
What are their motivations?
Why do they exhibit particular activity?
Which forms of content are most useful?

in peer-to-peer discussion.
43%

22%
eBooks
Tech pros are less likely to engage with press releases and
newsletters than their non-tech peers, so focus your content
efforts where it counts.
Accurate and Unbiased: 72% of ITDMs cite
“reliable and accurate content or information” as
being important1
and 69% point to “straightforward,
unbiased coverage” as a top characteristic.
It was straight
to the point
46% 40%
It came from a
reputable source
Our stats back this up. When asked about the last piece
of content they enjoyed reading, tech professionals said:
It was
inspirational
44%
For marketers, this means that in order to directly
appeal to tech buyers, you must:
Get to
the point
Include
key details
Have a
sense of
humor
Have a
point of
view
Tech professionals don’t always broadcast their own points of view
or offer up their own controversial opinions, but they are more
likely to actively engage with a piece of content that does.
TIP
Listen to
podcasts
(non-tech
peers 14%)
Download
white papers
(non-tech
peers 9%)
Tech professionals are also consuming media in unique ways!
Watch

the time to cultivate a relationship with these tech
professionals will be successful in the long run!
