Starting a venture is exciting. Nonetheless, the "build it and they will come" theory doesn't hold much weight.

Startups live and die by their ability to drive customer acquisition growth.

For early-stage startups, feedback is more important than just adding customers. Faster you resolve customer concerns and improve the product to match demand, more the chances of winning in the long run.

Marketing plays that pivot in identifying and bridging the gap between what the startup offers and what the customer really wants.

A traditional approach to marketing doesn't always work for startups. Startup marketing is a whole different science.

Once a Startup has gained significant acceptance in the market and mindshare of customers, it is an imperative for the startup to extend customer engagement and expand the market. This is the phase when they need to initiate PR and Branding activities to bring the required visibility and traction in the market.

Startups should apply the same rigor to getting advice from Marketing and PR consultants as they would from Financial advisors.
