What’s In It For Me (WIIFM): The Art of Crafting Government Messaging to Drive
Successful Agency Based Marketing

Sponsored by MeriTalk

WIIFM?  Life is short - say something customers care about. 

When you communicate with government IT decision makers, they don't care about you, they care about the missions that impact them. That's why you need to get inside the customer's mind. If you're not talking FITARA, MGT, TIC, FedRAMP, CDM, DCOI, RMF, then you're not speaking their language. 

Marketing and sales is like dating -- three seconds will get you 30 seconds, and 30 seconds will get you three minutes. 

Join us for an "edu-tainment" primer on What's In It For Me marketing in government IT.
