Reaching Your Market – The most powerful marketing tool – Word of Mouth (WOM)
We have created a platform for members to use the most powerful and proven marketing tool available – word-of-mouth. Members can reach more than 20,000 security practitioners, representing the Corporate, High Net Worth, Military, and government communities. Many of those who view member content cannot be reached via traditional social media outlets. Members reach an audience that is simply not available to others in the profession.
In 2019, ISDA members, through our word-of-mouth platform, reached tens of thousands of security professionals with their message.
Members have the opportunity to be published in the Executive Protection and Secure Transportation Magazine (EPST). It is one of the oldest Protective services magazines in the profession. Their articles are read by over 15,000 security practitioners, all with interest in secure transportation and protective services.
Members also have the opportunity to advertise in the EPST magazine FREE OF CHARGE.
Metrics – To meet the membership’s needs, ISDA supplies members with operational and business data that has assisted in marketing their services and the preparation of benchmarking and operational planning.
Job Opportunities – ISDA curates Executive/Security Driving job opportunities. Last year alone we listed over 250 job opportunities.
Salaries and Job Metrics – From the Job Opportunities, ISDA has metrics on salaries and the skills, knowledge, and level experience employers are demanding.
ISDA offers members an unprecedented connection to social media and the ISDA Network. We have created a platform for members to use the most powerful and proven marketing tool available – word-of-mouth.
Highlighting an ISDA member
Do you have a story to tell? Almost everyone in the profession does. Frequently, we feature an ISDA member on the ISDA website, in Security Driver Magazine, and throughout the ISDA network. In the Computer age, consider virtual networking.
The member’s story is read by not only the ISDA membership but also by our ISDA network of 7,500 security practitioners, all with an interest in secure transportation and protective services.
