Your Partner in Creative Marketing

Posted on: March 12th, 2017 by admin

While many of our Members bring their own marketing experiences and know-how to the TAG network, its a fact that on their own, small to medium-sized businesses won’t be able to achieve the same marketing successes of larger companies. That’s where TAG steps in, to bring together the different pieces of successful marketing that we see floating around the larger network, for the benefit of everyone. We’ve offered classes, workshops, and our own Creative Marketing Program to assist our Members with advanced marketing plans and strategies for their businesses.

All TAG Members can choose to receive basic to advanced level marketing training, filling in the gaps of our business owners and their teams. We offer marketing, public relations, and promotional materials that can be customized to fit your region and specific product offerings. Instead of always having to re-invent the wheel to market to different customer segments or promote particular services, you can use our resources to send out quality materials to entice customers. Don’t worry – your customers won’t be seeing the same marketing from you and your competitors. We actively work to differentiate our Members from the competition and stay ahead.

TAG wants to help its Members be successful. That is why we won’t just dump lots of brochures and materials in your laps. We’ll teach you how to best market your business in a creative, competitive manner, using the knowledge we’ve gathered from our partners and Members.

Network of Strategic Partners

Posted on: February 23rd, 2017 by admin

Every business owner knows the struggle of building a company up from nothing. In the beginning, but especially as you look to grow your business, every assistance is welcome. Over time, you build up a network of partners, mentors, experts, suppliers, and friends to support you. Working with the Technology Assurance Group has the benefit of being able to access a huge network of strategic partners, all looking forward to successful collaboration. All of our Members benefit from the additional products, services, and discounts that comes with these partnerships.

These Partners have been specially selected for their customer support and emphasis on quality. They provide a range of consulting, financing, software, certification, business, and IT solutions. They include distributors and manufacturers selling leading-edge products, such as Watchguard, Tigerpaw, Zultys, and Continuum, just to name a few. Whether you want your business to put more of a focus on security solutions or healthcare IT, you can find support within our list of partners. We can help you get rebates, discounts, and better deals than non-Members. In addition, you can benefit from workshops and meetings with these partners or talk to them at conferences. We help you with marketing products from our Partners, share tips and tricks for your sales, and enjoy a greater buying power together. You’re no longer a single fish in a wide ocean, but part of a larger group working towards the same destination.

Success with Strategic Teams for Advancement and Reward (STAR)

Posted on: December 6th, 2016 by admin

Do you enjoy the chance to exchange industry tips, developments, and pitfalls at conferences? There’s no need to wait that long to network. Through our STAR teams, members can share their unique experiences and knowledge to the benefit of the entire team. When experts come together, everybody profits for the exchanges. We help our STAR teams to meet several times a year for productive, engaging sessions, because we believe that success and advancement can only happen through collaboration.

We’ve been hearing from members, such as CIT , that they enjoyed the presentations given by fellow STAR members at the recent Baltimore meeting. Some of the topics discussed were how to ensure monthly recurring income and the benefits of agent programs. In addition to the networking and exchange of industry developments, our members enjoy the chance to socialize after all of the business talk. Some members also take advantage of the chance to visit local sights as part of their travel.

You and your business are not fighting a lone battle for advancement in unified communication and telecommunications. We here at TAG are here to help you and other members achieve your goals.

Using Group Purchasing Power to Your Advantage

Posted on: October 4th, 2016 by admin

It’s easy to see how one lone company isn’t getting the best deals when dealing with suppliers on their own. Small or large businesses, it is still the same problem – negotiation power. This is where a larger group can help you with leverage, support, and savings. TAG Members receive these financial advantages through rebates and partnerships. We have carefully constructed good relationships to build a network beneficial for both Members and our Strategic Partners.

TAG Members Partner to Upgrade Flint Schools

Posted on: June 10th, 2016 by admin

Among the many benefits of membership in TAG is the opportunity to network with other companies in the industry with similar goals and outlooks. This allows them to share strategies and occasionally collaborate on projects. Recently, two TAG member companies in Michigan–Complete Interactive Technologies Inc. (http://www.cit-4u.com/) of Clinton Township and Technology Solutions (https://www.ts-llc.com/) of Livonia–joined forces to install new infrastructure for two schools in Flint.

Together, they replaced the archaic voice and data infrastructure in these schools that was consistently failing with their level of use. They installed a new fiber backbone and Category 6 wiring, giving the schools the reliability and speeds that are crucial for using technology to its maximum potential for educating students. Not only does this project demonstrate the ways in which TAG member companies use the latest technology to help their clients achieve their goals, it reflects TAG members’ commitment to the communities they serve. Great work, CIT and Technology Solutions!
