Cybersecurity Marketing Agency

Cybersecurity is our specialty. Decades of experience helping cyber firms grow.

Our award-winning cybersecurity marketing agency is structured to deliver results quickly. Through working across the cyber security market landscape, we understand the players, targets, and ecosystem  that drive successful marketing strategies and programs.

Reaching Your Targeted Cybersecurity Audience

Who are you targeting? Magnetude can help.

 

Enterprise, mid-market, or SMB? Senior executives or boots-on-the-ground security staff? Targeting should be precise for the best results—and so should your marketing strategy and tactics. Often, the security role is carried by IT for smaller companies, or, as security shifts left and right, the decision-making landscape shifts too—so your marketing better keep up. Security is complicated and must consider adherence to standards bodies, compliance, current existing infrastructure, and vendor compatibility.

Some of the most successful cybersecurity marketing programs have been laser-focused on addressing specific target audiences. For any cyber security marketing campaign, your content should present a holistic image that reflects your brand, differentiation, and messaging pillars, and the messaging should resonate with the target market. We’re experts at making that happen—learn more about our cybersecurity marketing agency:

Persona Knowledge

Cybersecurity Persona Knowledge

In-depth knowledge of the target audience personas is critical to effectively marketing cybersecurity solutions. We help clients message and sell to both business and technical roles—CISOs, Security Analysts, DevSecOps, Risk and Compliance leadership and staff, and even non-security personas, including IT roles (who often undertake the security role in small and medium-sized businesses).

Marketing Campaign Results

Results-Driven Programming

Translating market and audience knowledge into actionable demand generation programming is also one of our core cybersecurity marketing functions. From creating compelling copy to digital marketing tactics like paid advertising, social media, and SEO to complete marketing plans and program execution—we know the levers to pull for cybersecurity companies to hit goals. Best of all, given our decade of history servicing cyber clients, we know what works, what to avoid, and how to drive prospects through the funnel.

Spotlight on Cybersecurity Expertise

Truly effective cybersecurity marketing requires the skills to support industry-specific go-to-market components. Learn more about two of these specific service areas where Magnetude shines.

Cybersecurity Channel Marketing

Partners and the channel—MSPs, MSSPs, cybersecurity consultants, fractional CISOs, digital transformation and IT service providers, and more—make up a critical path to growth for many cybersecurity companies. And on the flip side, many cybersecurity companies are the channel and are looking to maximize vendor relationships.

Wherever your cybersecurity company falls in relationship to the channel, maximizing performance requires sales and marketing collaboration. Whether you have an established program and are looking to drive better performance, or we are working together to establish and launch a winning channel program, create joint marketing efforts, manage and maximize partner marketing funds (MDF), and improve channel sales enablement, Magnetude’s cybersecurity channel marketing expertise can help.

Cybersecurity Product Marketing

Product marketing is a crucial facet of expertise in cybersecurity marketing due to the complex, technical nature of cybersecurity products and services. Magnetude’s cybersecurity product marketing expertise can provide a strategic approach to competitive analysis, positioning, messaging, and go-to-market, helping to simplify complex solutions and highlight the business value while maintaining accurate technical information. In tandem, we craft precise, accessible collateral and deploy sales enablement strategy and tactics to empower the sales team with the essential insights and tools they need.

The combination of this strategic work and boots-on-the-ground support helps to ensure that cybersecurity products and services resonate with the right audience and stand out in a crowded and competitive market.

Finding the Right Cybersecurity Marketing Agency

Expertise to Break Through the Noise

 

When you hire a cybersecurity marketing agency that has full-service capabilities, you benefit from the expertise and understanding of the cybersecurity landscape and gain access to a team of subject matter experts across the key functional areas of marketing. You can be sure that your marketing partner can start adding value immediately with no time to ramp up or get familiar with the complex and multifaceted cybersecurity industry.

Strong industry knowledge and marketing expertise are obvious requirements for working with any good cybersecurity marketing agency, but it takes more than these two factors to forge a successful partnership.

You should seek a firm where you can form a trusting partnership—and one that isn’t afraid to push the envelope and share differing opinions on your marketing needs based on its expertise.

Delivering results in the fast-paced cybersecurity marketing space

Designing successful marketing campaigns requires integrating a complex ecosystem of marketing strategies and tactics. Organizations that only employ a few of the different cyber security marketing strategies or take a siloed approach frequently find inadequate results. Many organizations are struggling to:

  • Stay current with cyber security market trends
  • Have the depth of knowledge required to develop cybersecurity content
  • Adequately address the full breadth of B2B marketing skill sets required for successful execution
  • Keep pace with rapidly evolving technology, best practices, and tools across the entire marketing ecosystem
  • Generate creative and engaging marketing ideas

Finding the optimal balance of activities that drives sales and optimizes your marketing budget is often the primary challenge for cyber security marketers. As organizations struggle with this objective, the goal of keeping current on marketing tools, best practices, and trends tends to go unmet.
