Cloud computing leader Nutanix wanted to generate proactive buzz around its Internet of Things (IoT) initiative, before it had any news announcements. To make a technical topic relevant for a top-tier business audience, I looked at trends in the industries that Nutanix was targeting, such as retail, manufacturing and smart cities.
I’m naturally passionate about retail news, and when I was reading headline after headline about brick-and-mortar retailers like Gap shutting down locations, I saw an opportunity to get Nutanix IoT in the conversation by sharing a content piece about how retailers can use IoT to stay competitive and continue innovating the shopping experience. I pitched the piece to business outlets and landed Entrepreneur – a key outlet that Nutanix IoT hadn’t previously reached.
The resulting byline positioned Nutanix as both an expert source on IoT technology and an approachable, relevant voice for business leaders.
