Marketing Agency for Industrial Automation

Industrial Automation Firm? Throw Away the Manual

Your primary challenge as an organization in the industrial automation space isn’t your competition. And it isn’t your offering. It’s your buyer. Buyers of industrial automation hardware, software, and services are unique. They don’t think like other B2B buyers. Their priorities are different. Their challenges are unique. And their buying journey’s are different.

For example, today’s buyers of industrial automation solutions are looking for partners, not products. They want to partner with manufacturers and providers who offer solutions, not simply widgets.

Your buyers are also risk-averse. Engineers responsible for the safe and productive operation of oil refineries, copper mines, chemical processing plants, advanced manufacturing production lines and other complex facilities are allergic to vendors who don’t understand their obsession with unscheduled downtime, overall equipment effectiveness, and safety.

Finally, you face the challenge of unseating an incumbent. Unless your offering is creating a brand-new category (not likely), you face the considerable challenge of persuading risk-averse buyers to switch from their current vendor to you. Large industrial companies don’t like switching suppliers. Switching takes times, consumes human resources, and affects the CAPEX budget.

If you want to succeed in the industrial automation space, you need an entirely new marketing playbook. Which means you need a marketing agency for industrial automation.
