Topic: Government Contracting

The Federal Government spends over $550+B annually and there may be an opportunity for you to sell your goods and/or services to the Federal Government. The Federal Government marketplace is vast and highly competitive. You need to first know how to locate your market for your Goods and/or Services.

The focus of this webinar is to provide a hands-on review of www.usaspending.gov and how to use USASpending.gov to locate and define the Federal Government markets. In addition, the webinar will provide guidance on what is necessary to prepare your Company prior to Marketing, understanding the different Federal Government Procurement Methods, Contract Types, Award Methodologies, and available tools for conducting Marketing Studies.

This webinar will serve as the foundation for developing your short- and long-term marketing plan in preparation for marketing your goods and/or services to government agencies and representatives. Every attendee will receive a copy of our Government Marketing Strategy Guide after the webinar.

The objective is to teach you how to use USASpending.gov to identify your Federal Government Market and how to use the data to develop your Marketing plan.
