The demand for fiber continues to grow as enterprise use of bandwidth-intensive devices and applications skyrocket and new technologies emerge. This presents a significant opportunity for network providers to serve such enterprise level customers. But what is the best approach for developing a go-to-market strategy in this fast-moving and highly competitive environment? How does one determine where new infrastructure should be built and the amount of resources to allocate for that area? How are vertical markets and customers targeted and marketing dollars prioritized?
In this webcast, Uniti Fiber will discuss how they have built their enterprise business over the last three years, and share:
- How they built an enterprise go-to-market strategy by leveraging location intelligence data to better assess and/or measure potential market demand, specific customers within that market, and resources/headcount required
- How their sales team is using location intelligence data to gain a more comprehensive understanding of their target markets and focus their sales efforts accordingly
- How their marketing team is executing more targeted campaigns to enterprise customers, and how they have seen increases in qualified leads as a result
