AIIA launches SME marketing guide

The Australian Information Industry Association (AIIA) has launched an SME Marketing Guide to counter a lack of marketing resources available for the ICT industry.

General manager of membership and business services, Kathryn Porritt, said the guide of more than 100 pages featured nine steps that offered advice about partnerships, selecting resellers and promotional tools.

"It includes the vital steps to developing a marketing plan, and explains, in plain English, the process involved in any marketing strategy," she said. "The guide offers case studies of marketing success from other SMEs, and provides a host of links and resources."

It is not exclusive to specific divisions of the ICT sector but is meant as a general overview. There were, however, a range of case studies from a variety of companies, that reflected the different sectors of the industry, she said.

AIIA also has a number of other initiatives in the works for SMEs, including a new ICT entrepreneurs' program aimed at ISVs.

"It will offer a unique combination of training, mentoring and business relationship development," Porritt said.

"The objective is to equip the participants with the knowledge and management skills necessary to lead their business through a sustained period of growth in the Australian and international markets."

The guide is available for public download from AIIA's website: http://www.aiia.com.au/.

This small mobile printer is exactly what I need for invoicing and other jobs such as sending fellow tradesman details or step-by-step instructions that I can easily print off from my phone or the Web.

Microsoft Office 365/Dell XPS 15 2-in-1

I’d recommend a Dell XPS 15 2-in-1 and the new Windows 10 to anyone who needs to get serious work done (before you kick back on your couch with your favourite Netflix show.)

Brother PT-P750W

It’s useful for office tasks as well as pragmatic labelling of equipment and storage – just don’t get too excited and label everything in sight!

The Brother MFC-L8900CDW is an absolute stand out. I struggle to fault it.

MSI GT75 TITAN

I need power and lots of it. As a Front End Web developer anything less just won’t cut it which is why the MSI GT75 is an outstanding laptop for me. It’s a sleek and futuristic looking, high quality, beast that has a touch of sci-fi flare about it.
