Startup Growth Workshop: How to Implement a Customer-First Marketing Approach

B2B Growth Marketing for Start Up / Scale Up organisations from Startup Grind Scotland.

The traditional ‘lead generation approach is outdated and becoming ineffective at creating long-term success for B2B startups that are looking to scale. Switching to a ‘demand generation’ and customer-centric marketing approach is now proving to be the key in supporting attribution and retention for the long term.

With that in mind, Startup Grind Scotland is presenting a workshop on how to implement a demand generation marketing approach that is centred around your customer.

Using quantitative and qualitative insights to develop a genuine understanding of your customer and by focusing on a value-led strategy, you will embed not only a transformative marketing action plan, but also a customer-centric internal culture as you scale your business.

What to expect:

  • An overview of the changing marketing landscape from lead generation to demand generation
  • A step-by-step guide to building a customer-first marketing strategy
  • How to find your key buyers through focusing on where ‘intent’ lies
  • How to maximise marketing’s impact, even with a smaller budget
  • The challenges to expect in the shift from one approach to the other
  • Tactics - what channels to focus your marketing efforts as you grow
  • How to align marketing and sales effectively
  • A guide to measurement; where marketing ends and sales takes over while measuring success
  • A sample framework to get you started
  • Q&A and workshop exercises

Who you are:

  • This workshop is limited to 15 attendees that are of Director/Founder level or Marketing Lead.

Date: Thurs 13th Oct

Time: 10.00 - 13.00

Duration: 2 hours with a break and time for networking
