What Is Government Contractor Branding?
Federal branding is all about making a name for your company. As you continue to improve the products and/or services you offer, be sure your reputation continues to improve as well.
Branding helps you get noticed by key government procurement decision-makers. Without a strong B2G name, you may be passed by or forgotten by decision-makers.
What Is Federal Contractor Marketing
Marketing is what shares your company brand with key decision-makers. It starts by identifying the top five government agencies (or the Prime Contractors serving them) that you wish to do business with. Next, you need to create a game plan to connect with decision-makers in those agencies. Finally, you need to leave a lasting impression on them with them as a professional, trustworthy federal contracting firm.
