New Marketing Kit: How to Protect Against Ransomware

Posted on Aug 29, 2016 · Comments Off on New Marketing Kit: How to Protect Against Ransomware

Ransomware is scary.

Companies are afraid of getting infected.

That means that the IT service provider that teaches these companies how to stay safe will have an advantage in winning new business. That IT provider will either be you or one of your competitors.

To help give you the advantage, use our new How to Protect Against Ransomware Marketing Kit. It gives you the educational tools and resources you need to build a reputation within your target market as the "go to" expert for protection against ransomware. Use the kit to generate new IT leads for your company.

This IT marketing kit provides you with documents that clearly explain what ransomware is and how to avoid being a victim of it. Presenting this valuable information will highlight your knowledge and expertise about this fast-growing computer security threat.

The kit includes a white paper and PowerPoint slide deck entitled How to Protect Your Business from Ransomware Attacks. You can easily edit each file to customize it for your MSP business.

Convert Web Visitors Into Qualified Leads

You can also post the white paper on your website as a lead magnet to capture contact information from visitors.Doing this can generate new qualified IT prospects right from your website immediately.

Rather than having a basic "Contact Us" form, which people will only fill out if they're ready to have a conversation with you, offer an incentive for visitors to connect with you.

On your home page, post a form with these words above it:

Download our free guide: How to Protect Your Business Against Ransomware

This way, visitors who see your form will have a good reason to provide you with their contact information. And this will allow you to nurture those new leads using an email newsletter, follow up sales calls to get them ready to buy your IT services.

Even if you were thinking of updating the site, you don't have to wait to start getting leads from it. Your current visitors will see the white paper offer and reach out to you.

Follow Up with Prospects Gone Cold

Prospects will buy from you if they trust you. You can build that trust by being the company that educates them about IT issues they face. This guide is a reference that they will keep handy, even if they are not ready to buy your services yet.

In addition to offering it as a download from your website, you can use it as a reason to reconnect with leads that have gone cold. Just email them a note that reads:

Hi <first name>, you may have seen the headlines of companies paying a ransom to get their data back after cybercriminals encrypted all of their files. Our new guide on ransomware hows you how to protect your business from this fast-growing security threat. Would you like a complimentary copy?

It's much more effective than a typical follow-up email that says "just checking in."

What's a New Client Worth?

Our marketing kits are included free as part of Presstacular's Gold and Platinum subscriptions. Every now and then I hear from companies who really want to use our marketing kits but say they can't afford to subscribe.

Let me ask you this one question about your business:

What's a new client worth to you?

Most MSPs have clients that range between $250-1500/month, some much higher. In one year, that client is worth $3000-18,000. On average, clients generally stay with their MSP for a long time. Let's say your average is 3 years. To calculate what that client is really worth to you, multiply your average monthly revenue by 36 (12 months x 3 years).

In other words, every new client has a customer lifetime value (CLV) of $9,000-54,000!

That's a lot of money - and this is just for one new client. If you use the content of this marketing kit to make a presentation at your local chamber or a handful of associations, you have the potential to close many new clients.

Two new clients can generate upwards of $100,000 in CLV.

Investing in a Presstacular subscription is a tiny fraction of your CLV. If you're serious about growing your business, think seriously about getting tools and content to propel your marketing.
