As technology constantly changes, so does the world of marketing. The challenge of bringing High Tech Products to the market requires a fresh approach to standard marketing practice.
We cordially invite you to a seminar bringing these issues to the forefront. You will learn how to tackle and break down the obstacles associated with the marketing of High Tech products.
Traditionally, Marketers have talked about the 4 P’s of Marketing:
Product, Price, Promotion, and Place (distribution). However, within the context of software and high-tech marketing, it can be argued that the fifth ‘P’ of Platform becomes a key factor in a marketing plan that also dictates a reinterpretation of the other four. Dynamics around Standards, Network Effects, and Technology life-cycles drive new paradigms around how ‘high tech’ companies need to consider their marketing approach.
Who Should Attend? Individuals involved in the marketing of software or high tech products or principals and owners of high tech firms. The focus will be on software, however many principals can apply to other High Tech companies.
