Category: Product Marketing & Demand Creation
One of the key aspects of product marketing is a clear and coherent position message. Steve Johnson of Pragmatic Marketing describes how to produce this kind of product positioning message in his article, A Look at Clarity in Positioning.
For a description of the "nuts and bolts” of a product marketing job, Business Week has a compelling "Day in the Life” series on various professions. In A Day In The Life: Product Marketing Manager, the article follows Daniel Helmhold as he navigates his new job in Product Marketing at a san Francisco gaming software company. The comments from the (mostly) gamers at the end of the article are interesting customer feedback, and a good example of community marketing.
The July BPMA Practitioners Workshop will cover these subject and more. Register today.
