At TechReckoning, we help enterprise technology marketers develop programs that speak directly to technologists. The marketplace is noisy. It’s hard to get attention in the marketplace. It’s hard to know what resonates with your audience, especially one that tunes out when it thinks it hears marketing buzzwords. Technology geeks do want to hear about your solutions, but you have to talk their language and form long-term relationships with them.

We work with a wide range of corporate teams like:

  • product marketing and technical marketing
  • sales engineering and professional services
  • Office of the CTO
  • corporate marketing, digital marketing, and field marketing
  • public relations and analyst relations
  • community and support

We develop

  • user group programs
  • community programs
  • influencer and MVP programs
  • employee ambassador programs
  • blogger relations programs
  • technical evangelism programs

We also can help you hire technical evangelists, developer advocates, and community managers.

Community and Influencer Marketing

We’d like to help you build long-term, strategic relationships with smart, interesting people throughout your ecosystem and your industry. But even if you just need to get the word out about a product launch or new announcement, we can help.

Podcast Production

One of the best ways to talk with geeks is via podcasting.  We’ve produced something like 400 podcast episodes since 2008, so we think we’ve got it down. We can help

  • refine and structure your podcast concept
  • advise on equipment purchase
  • launch and publicize your podcast
  • recruit, schedule, and orient podcast guests
  • record, produce and edit each episode
  • contribute on-air talent

We work with a network of professional editors and producers to deliver a top-notch, listenable product. Our studio also holds the “Skype-topus,” a rack of machines and processors that we’ve built to deliver quality audio from multiple guests recorded over the Internet.
