Track: Influencer & Affiliate Marketing

Session: Ten truths on analyst relations for tech companies and startups

Analyst relations is perceived either as obscure or the privilege of large, established, technology vendors who have ample people resources and large budgets to subscribe to the likes of Gartner, IDC, Forrester, Omdia, etc.
Yet, the upside is immense: being mentioned as a cool vendor or evaluated in a Gartner Magic Quadrant trumps any other form of endorsement to build credibility and there are other, more important, benefits in engaging with industry analysts.
This session will go through the stages of analyst relations for growth companies and vendors –and it’s ROI.
