Marketing a technical product to sophisticated prospects. Have satisfied customers.

One of the long established (but not always adhered to) rules  in marketing technical products (such as Alpha Five  business application development software) is that prospects don't want to be sold to!

They want to be educated and informed. They don't want a string of glowing adjectives telling you how wonderful the product is. They simply want information and examples of what other customers (who they can relate to) are actually achieving with the product in the real world.

It was therefore with great happiness when we came across this thread today on the Alpha Message board.

So what is the moral of the story?

Build a really good product that delivers on its promise and your customers will become your best advocates!

As always we are interested in hearing your story regarding the impact Alpha has had on your business.

Thanks for your support.
