Know what IT buyers are 

thinking right now.

Without breaking the bank.

Used by:

To capture a busy IT exec’s attention (and budget), you need to market your offering as the solution to a problem they’re facing today. 

The problem is, finding out what your target buyers are prioritizing right now has historically meant paying a traditional market research firm for farmed IT market analysis. You could commission them to conduct custom research for you… but that takes a 

big chunk of your budget. And by the time you get your results, they’re already out of date. 

Tech execs use online communities to get peer advice, talk about the latest trends, and make purchasing decisions.

CIOs in communities like Pulse are generating the real-time insights you need to understand your target buyers’ priorities. Our 15,000+ IT executives members are ready to answer your questions so you can solve their immediate needs—not those from last quarter.

Or—you could crowdsource real-time data from a verified online community for a fraction of the time and money.

Industry insights are invaluable—but getting them can be pricey. Industry analysts charge subscriptions that take a big chunk out of your bottom line, and their custom research fees are even higher. Getting real-time data from the Pulse community costs 80% less.
