3 public relations tips for your IT startup

Posted by John Mathewson on March 29, 2015

If you are starting your own IT company, one of the things that will set you apart from the competition is your marketing and public relations. A business' success or failure can depend entirely on word of mouth and whether or not people actually use the products or services that you offer.

As you might not be an expert at public relations, chances are you will need a bit of outside help in order to get the word out. Once your company is up and running, the next thing you will need to do is market it well.

Here are a few tips to help you out:

  • Be prepared to collaborate: Because marketing and PR can be so tricky, you will likely have others helping you. This means being creative and trusting others to get the job done, as well as sharing ideas. Opening yourself up to being part of a team will be crucial.
  • Define your objectives: There should be a clear list of things you want to accomplish when it comes to your PR strategy. You need to outline these before you begin marketing your company to a broad audience, as that will help guide you.
  • Have realistic expectations: Just because you have a PR team doesn't mean you will see success overnight. It is important that you manage your expectations and allow yourself the time necessary to succeed. Most businesses are not effectively built overnight.
