Wonder whose idea this was. . .
« on: January 12, 2015, 09:37:59 pm »
Just got an email for Altium's "EDA Masters" road show, coming to a city near me.  Free food and cocktails, and maybe learning a thing or two about Altium?  Sounds alright to me.  At a local country club?  Fancy.  And prizes?  Let's see. . .

Participants will receive various gifts and prizes throughout the event including:  Titleist Golf Balls and Tees, Visor Hats, Gift Sets, Round of Golf, Callaway Driver Club and possibly even an EDA Masters Green Jacket!

Space is Limited….Register for your Tee Time Today!

Yeah.  You don't get marketing this clever from just any middle manager.  This is MBA material for sure!

This is clearly targeted to bean counters, not engineers. But lets think about that statement. Most people doing board layout already know about Altium and would gladly use it. The ones that need convincing to plunk down the cash are the bean counters and MBA's. As a company strategy Altium may be doing the right thing. The product is already sold in the mind of the PCB designer. Its just his manager you have to convince to part with the cash.
