Get the Know-How on Using Inventor Podcasts to Market Technologies
When giving prospects expert information about a technology available for licensing, there’s nothing like getting the facts straight from the horse’s mouth. Or, in our case, the inventor’s mouth! For some of Fuentek’s efforts to secure licensees or partners for client technologies, the inventor has played a key role. Inventors add a perspective that few others can bring to the table, and they can lend extremely important credibility to your marketing message. One great way to use inventors effectively in technology marketing is to have them record podcasts about their technologies.
What Makes for a Good Blog Post for Technology Marketing?
As regular readers of the Fuentek blog know, we believe that social media is an efficient and effective tool to boost your technology transfer office’s (TTO’s) online presence, driving more licensing prospects to your Web site and feeding the pipeline that helps you secure more deals. Perhaps the most powerful way to drive traffic to your TTO’s Web site is to blog about the technologies you have available for licensing.
