Did you miss the 2018 Federal Media & Marketing Study breakfast? Don’t miss this second chance to hear results from Market Connections’ President, Aaron Heffron. Join us for the second webinar of a three-part series sharing highlights and deeper insights from our annual study.

There is no one-size-fits marketing strategy for reaching federal audiences. This webinar will focus on how media habits can differ by agency type, product category, location among other factors and demographics. In an ever-changing fiscal environment, marketers trying to reach federal decision-makers must be intentional in their strategies to maximize the ROI of their tightening budgets.

Learn how results from this survey help them reach the right senior decision-makers at civilian and defense agencies by providing key information about their media usage across print, broadcast, social and digital sources. Combining this with demographics including: job function, location, purchase area and more, marketers have the ability to slice and dice the data and map each to specific media habits, allowing them to target specific audiences.

differentiateWith the federal contracting market exceeding half a trillion dollars yearly, and additional potential revenue from other public-sector markets including state and local, K-12 and higher education, companies (large and small) are trying their best to position themselves to take advantage of opportunities and establish themselves with potential customers. However, as these markets have matured, millions of marketing and advertising dollars have been invested and companies are finding it harder and harder to clearly differentiate their products and services in this over-saturated public-sector market.

Market Connections and Boscobel Marketing Communications have been reviewing the online materials, positioning and taglines of some of the top federal government contractors. This recent evaluation revealed that many companies sound, and even look, the same. Leveraging analysis from the Market Connections research team, president Aaron Heffron will review how the top government contractors have (or have not) differentiated themselves in the federal cyber security market. Boscobel CEO, Joyce Bosc will present an analysis of top 100 contractor taglines, highlighting similarities, and differences, and the challenges marketers are facing as they try to present new and old brands in the market.

Please join us to see how your company stacks up against your competitors and to hear best practices in ensuring that you are putting the best foot forward into the lucrative public-sector market.
