“After 12 years marketing to IT professionals in various roles, I’ve learned one very important lesson: don’t oversell something or make it sound more fun than it really is or they will be totally turned off.”
-Liz Pedro, Director of Customer Success Marketing at Mitel 

“IT advocates are extremely passionate about what they do. They love providing feedback and networking with their peers. They are used to having to listen, so when they get asked to speak they really enjoy that.”
-Kim Ellis, Director of Customer Experience at BMC Software

“Although many IT professionals are introverts or adverse to the spotlight, we have found that many are not. So it’s very important to know your advocates and what motivates them.”
-Sophie Brown, Customer Marketing Manager at Bomgar
