How to Get Your Product Noticed by Engineers

Stephen Martin October 13, 2020

Engineers are consumers like the rest of us, but their well developed suspicion about marketing (and sales) is a often a difficult barrier to overcome. All of us are experienced at tuning out marketing and sales messages but we have found that engineers' distrust of 'being sold' is a direct result of their intrinsic problem-solving mindset. Before they will consider purchasing a product they want to learn from reputable sources about the underlying technology and make their own...

Marketing to Engineers - Ten Barriers to Engagement

Stephen Martin September 15, 2020
10 Reasons your prospect may not be engaging or buying from you

Unless you have a large marketing team and with tightly controlled hand-off of sales-qualified leads you probably often work in the gray areas between marketing and sales. Some of you are likely responsible for both marketing and sales. 

If you have worked in an engineering-driven industry like Embedded for any amount of time you may be familiar with some of these barriers to engagement and sales.

This is another in a series of posts about these what I have learned about marketing to engineers over my 25-year career. I encourage you to add your thoughts and experiences in the comments section below.

Everyone is swarmed with messages --many of which are irrelevant or not timely. The typical North American consumer will be bombarded with thousands of advertising messages each day from Internet, TV, billboards and signs, radio, social media, apps and games,

Marketing to Engineers - Resistance to Change

Stephen Martin August 2, 2019

In my last blog post I talked about how engineers are resistant to change. I want to elaborate on this more because it is potentially a huge barrier for companies/marketers who are trying to introduce something new to the market. 

Engineers often base their decisions on what has worked for them in the past. They are unlikely to jump to something new just because it is trendy or "sexy."

If you want to introduce something new to engineers I strongly encourage you to understand...

Video Marketing


You probably know about how video can make a powerful impact on your prospects and customers. It is the fastest-growing segment in marketing today. But you may be putting it off because of worries about cost or production challenges, or perhaps your lack of experience.

The easiest way to bring video into your marketing mix is to capture an already planned live event such as a trade show, road show, demo, seminar or speech. You have already put the work into developing the content for the live event. Your presenter has practiced and is knowledgeable about the topic. Why not put that event on video and dramatically multiply the number of people who can see and benefit from that content.

We make it easy to do this. Our professional videographer will travel to your event, capture the moment and then work with you to edit, publish and promote the video(s) on your channels and ours. We all know how challenging it can be to consistently develop meaningful content for marketing. This video approach can give you a whole new library op content with almost no extra effort. And the results could be huge.

Talk to us about helping you capture and repurpose the content from an upcoming event. We will put together a cost-effective proposal to help you maximize the impact of the event and multiply the value of the work you put into it. Below are some examples of what we have done with other companies. What can we do for you?
