The second issue discusses the pivotal role marketing plays in a successful technology company. Each of the other 6 issues identifies key challenges and presents strategies to address. Issue Identification and Assessment As the President or Chief Marketing Officer of a small to medium-sized technology company, are one or more of the following "hot buttons" for you?: We're having trouble planning the next product because we're so busy supporting the product we just launched.
Our marketing folks are spending so much time working with Development they don't have enough time to support Sales. Our sales reps don't have enough qualified leads and spend too much time cold calling. It takes us too long to close a deal.
How can we speed up our sales process? How do we decide on the features for the next product? Should we delay launching the new product to get more features? We've grown to a size that our old way of doing things just isn't working anymore.
How do we make our company more market- and customer-driven? Are we getting the most out of our investment in marketing? How should we organize our marketing group?
You are just at the starting line; lack of marketing is significantly impeding your results. You have some marketing basics in place, but would greatly benefit from a more comprehensive approach. Your marketing effort is stronger than most, and has the potential to be a major competitive advantage.
As such, Marketing is pulled in multiple directions. Marketing is the critical intersection between Development, Sales, Customers, and the Executive Team. How Marketing impacts your organization: A Marketing touches Customers, Prospects, and industry thought leaders via press releases, magazine articles, briefings, brochures, trade shows, customer councils, advisory boards, and lead generation programs.
B Drawing on the information gathered both externally and internally, Marketing supports the Executive Team in developing business strategy by identifying market opportunities and generating and executing marketing strategies and plans that support attainment of business objectives.
C Marketing works with Development to define requirements, plan products, and bring products to market. Marketing must assure the delivery of a reliable and "complete" product that includes documentation, training, and support.
If relevant, Marketing also addresses upgrade, migration and "end-of-life" planning. However, the simultaneous demand and contention for limited Marketing resources may cause one or the other to lose out.
Creative thinking is required to assure that the needs of all parties are met. Let's face it, product launches are exciting. Months of energy have gone into creating a product that will hopefully enable Sales to make a breakthrough. The problem is that Development engineers are waiting to work on the next product and they need new product requirements NOW!
The answer lies in having a requirements definition process that is on-going and produces an "evergreen" requirements database.
You may also need to have one headcount dedicated at least half-time to key activities in product planning. Our Marketing team spends so much time working with Development they don't have enough time to support Sales.
This issue is a corollary 1 above. A close working relationship between Marketing and Development sometimes leaves little room for Marketing to support Sales. Again, the answer may come in structuring product planning as an on-going "evergreen" process.
Often some marketing staff must have their roles and objectives defined to explicitly favor sales support. A software company in Palo Alto, CA assigned one of their four product managers to work primarily on product planning.
This "product planner" supported the other product managers in planning activities while they continued to support the sales force. In this way Development had the input and direction they required, and Sales received needed support. Also, the Product Managers were less stressed and had greater job satisfaction.
The Selling Process Identifying and understanding your target customer and documenting the selling process are critical success factors. Proceeding without this information is like taking a long road trip without having a map. Sales productivity is an issue for many companies.TIFFIN SUPPLY CENTRE A.
