Winning Strategies for B2B Product Marketing

"Chasm crossing is not the end, but rather the beginning, of mainstream market development."

Geoffrey A. Moore

What is Product Marketing?

The function is often confused, as it means different things to different people. It falls at the intersection between the sales, marketing and product domain and as such, requires a diverse set of skill sets.

Product Marketing vs. Product Management

The Product Manager defines the product that will be built by the engineering team. A Product Marketing Manager has a deep understanding of the market, customer and tells a story about the product to the world. These are two sides of the same coin, and should work together closely for the success of the product.

Product Management – Product Marketing – Marketing Continuum

product management will work with engineering to get the right product that the user wants, Product Marketing will get the story or message that needs to be told to the market and the Marketing team will ensure the consistency of this message.
