“In order to widely disseminate information about Astana Hub, we had to attract an audience that had not previously interacted with our content, and in general was not familiar with the activities of the technopark. We decided to follow the sales technique used in marketing - AIDA. This is the basic behavior of people when they buy something or receive any services. It stands for: A - Attention, Attracting attention; I - Interest, Interest; D - Desire, Desire; A - Action, Action. That is why it was decided to use the so-called representatives of the creative economy - bloggers and viners, to attract maximum attention to the activities of the Astana Hub, and further arousing interest in us, to transfer all those interested in IT technologies to the category of those who wish to start joining our programs, to create and develop your startup with us, to study at the programming school,” said Marat Shaken, PR director of Astana Hub.
