Marketing Strategies in the Federal Spending Sector
The federal government is a unique client with special considerations for marketing. In government contracting, mastering marketing is just as important for success as regulation and compliance.
Just as in the private sector, you have inbound and outbound marketing. However, in federal contracting, the way you interact with your buyer along their journey is different.
Placing yourself in locations where government buyers shop and designing your marketing assets for accessibility and readability are the key aspects of inbound federal marketing. This is when the buyers to come to you.
More often, you will have to reach out to the government to let them know that you exist. However, reaching out at the right times in the right venue is key. Knowing how to “talk the talk” is the second challenge of outbound federal marketing.
The Contracting Officer Relationship
The government is very good about explaining what they want, but always has needed a little assist in knowing what they need. If they need a widget for a project, they either will consult past contracts or consult the industry for how that widget should work. This is your perfect chance to show them what you are all about.
For simplicity, we talk about "the government," but never forget you are dealing with people just like in the private sector. Their wallet is simply a little more regulated. Their decisions made with more oversight. It's kind of like selling to a kid whose parents manage their allowance.
