Product Comparison Chart

Inflectra provided a product comparison chart which can help customers decide which service to choose.

Site Structure

Overall great site with a lot of content and internal links.

Social Media

Inflectra regularly post contents on their social media profiles but lacks promotion and marketing. They can expand their reach to more potential customers by utilizing their social media.

Facebook

Same problem many have: too much creation, and no promotion.

Twitter: responding…

Inflectra regulary responds to tweets and also retweets.

… but not marketing

But they lack strategy on how they can expand their customer base and grow their followers.

Linkedin

The same with their LinkedIn — they post regularly but doesn’t have a lot of followers.

PR

Press release

  • Everything is nicely organized in a press release section.
  • Who is actually using these press releases? (Maybe I am missing it. If you see evidence of active PR work, let me know!)

Marketing Ideas

  • Inflectra is a huge software suite with thousands of clients
  • My gut feeling is they pull most leads through the partner programs (business development)
  • Why improve anything online? If polish details, go for
  • Social media automation
  • Better content syndication
  • Fix smaller issues (white paper with email option)

For fine tuning

  • Increase social media followers and create an automated content syndication strategy.
