IT and Telecom Education

Educating the Industry

By: Nick Jackson, PowerSource Online

The main goal of PowerSource Online’s monthly digital magazine is to educate and inform those whose daily lives are somehow affected by the IT and Telecom industries. Each month, thousands of IT and Telecom industry members as well as end-users from all over the world, take time to read the articles that are featured within each issue.

Recent articles have been based on IT and Telecom subjects such as:

• Recycling
• Certifications
• Vendor Management
• Asset Management
• Upcoming Trade Shows
• Enhancing Service Offerings
• Managed Services and Managed Print Services
• Any Many other Subjects

For IT and Telecom industry members who provide article content for the digital magazine, this can mean earning respect and recognition for educating the IT and Telecom industry, while also receiving publicity and acknowledgement for providing the content.

We here at PowerSource Online surveyed a group of IT and Telecom companies who have provided us magazine articles over the past few years; here are the top 5 reasons why they have chosen to do so:

1. Have a sense of responsibility to educate the industry
2. Writing articles can help establish you as an expert in your field
3. Publicity/Recognition
4. Target audience of PowerSource Online Magazine is in line with the companies target market
5. Articles create a sense of personality for the company

While there may be many other reasons why an IT and Telecom company would want to write an article and have it in our magazine, it seems that the general consensus is the desire to educate our industry. With the IT and Telecom industry changing daily, companies on the front line of hardware sales, service, and support are the ones who need to be providing useful insight into trends, forecasts, and tips on how to have continued success within the IT and Telecom industry.

Are you part of a company who has the desire to educate the IT and Telecom industry? Do you want to be considered an expert in your field? Could you benefit from targeted publicity and recognition? If so, PowerSource Online asks you to submit content for an upcoming issue of PowerSource Online Magazine. To submit content, you can visit http://www.powersourceonline.com/magazine/suggestion or email articles@powersourceonline.com.

In addition to being featured in a monthly digital issue, articles which are published are posted online as well as being shared on social media sites such as LinkedIn, Twitter, and Facebook.

To those of you who have provided content for us recently and in the past, we thank you for your support and desire to educate the industry. To those of you who haven’t yet provided content: we look forward to hearing what you have to say.
