ProductTank: Product & Marketing - A Love Story

What we'll do

Session 1: Unifying Product and Marketing

You've worked hard to validate and develop your product. Now you need to share your product and its value to your target clients, users or customers. Easier said than done.

If you're in a startup or SME you may have to be your own Product Marketing Manager. Or if you have Marketing and Sales, they seem to talk a totally different language. How do you break down the silos between product and marketing/ sales to ensure a successful launch?

In this two-part series, we take the important next steps to getting our product to market. This session combines the key models to shape your thinking as well as the real work skills to build a successful Go-To-Market strategy.
