The Vision Behind Ulistic: Helping MSPs To Gain A Much Needed Edge In Today’s Crowded Market

Stuart Crawford is the founder and CEO of UlisticStuart Crawford. Under his leadership, the company has grown to become a full-service marketing agency for managed services providers across Canada, the U.S., and Australia. Stuart firmly believes that success is a journey so you have to take one step at a time. And, this is exactly what he has done with Ulistic. Today, the company boasts a team of 30 members who work diligently to serve the needs of hundreds of clients.

For Stuart, meeting his client’s needs is highly fulfilling work. With IT as his company’s sole focus, all of his clients come from within the MSP community. This undeniably allows him to direct all of his attention and efforts to ensuring that his clients get the best marketing services to successfully compete in the competitive IT market. 

The history behind Ulistic…and how it all began:

Stuart founded his own MSP in Canada in 2001. Seven years later, he exited the business and shifted his focus to other ventures. He began helping other MSPs with M&A activity. Soon after, he decided that it was time to start a new company so he teamed up with a partner and began Ulistic. About four months later, he bought his partner’s share and went on to develop the company into the successful marketing agency it is today.

How does he provide outsourced marketing at Ulistic?

Stuart approaches marketing with a golfing mindset. In golf, players are allowed to have 14 clubs in their bag. Similarly, there are about 14 different aspects of marketing that need to be addressed. At Ulistic, he aims to tackle each of these. One of the first and most important services that he provides to clients is an outsourced web marketing service that undertakes all aspects of web design, social media, email blasts, case study writing, and Google ad words for a fixed low monthly fee.

Additionally, the services are not capped or limited. Therefore, clients can choose to do 10 case studies per month or 10 case studies per year. In the next level of service, clients work closely with Stuart on a weekly basis. He draws from his own experience as a former IT services provider, which enables clients to trust him as a fully capable chief marketing officer.

What topic will he be delving into as a speaker at the SMB online conference this year?

Stuart will be discussing “stratosphere success,” a terminology he first borrowed from his mentor and has since applied to the workplace at Ulistic. According to Stuart, each person describes success in a different way. While some may define success as having more time with their family, others equate success with more time spent on the golf course. Still others determine their success according to how much money they have in the bank. Whatever your definition of success may be, Stuart’s goal is to help you become stratospherically successful. To this end, he will reveal several easy mechanisms that managed services providers can utilize without having to drain their time or financial resources.
