Microsoft recently announced that they are delaying the release of Windows 10 to the general public. On July 29, 2015, it will now only be made available to a select group of people, not to everyone as originally anticipated.
As an IT service provider, this is an ideal time to send an alert to your contacts to help solidify your position as an expert who knows the pulse of the industry.
In your alert, include information that your contacts will likely ask you about the delay, such as who Windows 10 will be released to first, when and how they can get it, why there is a delay and so on.
Presstacular clients: a detailed, professionally-written 600-word article is ready for you to use (more on this topic coming soon to help your contacts evaluate the pros/cons of upgrading).
- Select the article on the Windows 10 delay
- Click "Next" to send the alert and automatically post it to your blog
You'll be done in about 90 seconds and your contacts will appreciate the timely insight!
Send it to all of your contacts, not just your clients. Those who aren't using your services yet will be scratching their heads wondering why their current IT firm isn't keeping them up-to-date.
Include a call-to-action at the bottom of your article to encourage your contacts to start a conversation with you. This is a very timely opportunity for your IT business. Don't miss it!
