How do I stand out from outsourcing companies when marketing my software company?
Is it possible to generate leads for software outsourcing through email marketing and LinkedIn? My questions are as follows:
-All CTOs/ CEOs I've talked to, told me that they receive hundreds of emails from software outsourcing companies that promise to solve all their problems. Even though we are focused on a particular niche (We help fintech startups and have a focus on UX / UI), we are struggling to distance ourselves from the crowd. Has anyone had success via this approach outside of SaaS, e-commerce or newsletters?
- Has anyone worked with a good marketing agency, that has proven results with B2B email marketing outreach for software outsourcing companies? Most of them seem to be SaaS or e-commerce.
