How do you measure up? A crowd-sourced, cross-pollinated discussion on evaluating product marketing effectiveness.
As a product marketer how do you evaluate if you’re being effective? If you’re in marcomms, product management, sales or the CEO how do you evaluate if the role is being effective and properly supported?
Is product marketing judged on volume output such as leads, events, webpages or trainings produced? Are you being driven by “optics and politics” and “the way things are done here “or jumping on the latest trends and content tactics du jour.
How do you determine if your priorities are in the right place? If you are over or understaffed, if there are bottlenecks or organizational issues that inhibit effectiveness. Is your measure of success different at different stages of product/company development? Does product marketing in a start-up or for a new product get measured in the same way as a more mature one?
Are there common metrics regardless of company size or product maturity?
We’ll propose some straw man metrics and then organize the chaos that will likely ensue. So come ready to participate!
