SAP Ecosystem Success in an Opt-Out Economy - 31 Keys to Better Results Print E-mail

A JonERP Special Report

jreed.jpgThe rules of marketing are broken. What does that mean for the SAP ecosystem? It means that too often, we do spectacular things that go unnoticed. Our solutions get lost in the instant gratification "attention economy." And even if you have a war chest, you can't spend your way out of it. The SAP firms that try to buy eyeballs with broadcasting approaches only accelerate their failures. Meanwhile, SEO and social media "gurus" are ripping firms off left and right with overpriced and flawed approaches. So what's the answer? 

The answer is that anyone who claims to have all the answers is probably a fraud. But there is good news: even though attempts to "go viral" fail and tone-deaf stock photo marketing gets ridiculed in real-time, there's never been a better time to further your business by becoming part of the community rather than advertising into it. That means developing deep expertise, turning that into exceptional content, and making that content easy to access and share. 

In this JonERP Speical Report on SAP Solutions Success, I put all the best ideas I've seen, all the tactics that have proven themselves in the road tests of my own work (and that of my clients), into 31 keys to success.  For the last few months this piece has been available for download via TechTarget - now it's on JonERP, and you can either download the entire PDF (128KB) or browse the sections online. Read on for a few more details on the table of contents. 

How to Move from Opt-Out to Community Relevance: 31 Keys to Success in the SAP Ecosystem

Keys 1-4 - Avoiding SAP Marketing #Fails (and Report Introduction)

"Jon, you are definitely spot on with your analysis of the SAP market. I've been using your websites for over five years now. Instead of buying all the SAP books, I use your stuff to catch up with what's new in the ever-increasing SAP market." - Mark

JonERP.com Reader Feedback

"I've kept up with your JonERP.com site for a long time and your articles via SearchSAP.com and elsewhere. I just realized a few months ago that you were also the author of the first SAP Consulting book that I read when I decided to take the leap from working at a Utility company to becoming an SAP Consultant. The SAP Consultant Handbook is a staple for any SAP consultant, new or experienced. I just wanted to thank you for the quality work."
