Are you a small or mid-sized B2B founder or CEO without the in-house resources to develop the product marketing foundation and go-to-market strategy you really need to attract and retain the right clients?
You know you have an amazing product that can make a significant difference for your ideal customers, and you're pretty sure more clients would be attracted come on board - if they only first knew your product existed and second understood exactly why you're different and the impact your product can make for them. But how can you stand out and compete with all the larger organizations and their big budgets?
That's where your Fractional Product Marketing Manager comes in. I specialize in helping small and mid-sized B2B firms businesses really understand what sets their products apart (from their ideal client's perspective vs. your internal assumptions), and then create the right product marketing foundation (positioning, messaging, narrative, copy and core marketing/sales-enablement materials) and go-to-market strategy to attract, convert and retain more of your ideal clients.
Differentiating your products and attracting your ideal clients is possible...
Hi! I'm Nicole. I combine my 20+ years of executive level B2B marketing strategy experience with my expertise in product marketing for multiple B2B technology, SaaS, healthcare, education and manufacturing firms (ranging from start-up and scale-up to enterprise) to help small and mid sized B2B firms take a strategy-first and product marketing best practices approach to create the right best-practices foundation for growth, differentiate from the competition, and attract and retain ideal clients.
As a Certified Product Marketing Manager, former HubSpot Partner, and Master Certified Duct Tape Marketing consultant, I apply proven processes and systems to solve the complex puzzle of marketing for small and mid sized B2B firms.
Plus, I apply my strong communication, interviewing, empathic and relationship building skills gained through Master Coach Certification and deep training in personality psychology and Sparketypes to really connect with customers, break down internal team silos and act as the bridge between product, sales, customer success, engineering and executive teams.
In the end, the key to effective product marketing is authenticity, transparency and getting to the heart of who your business really is and understanding why your ideal clients choose you, love your products, and keep working with you. Once we know that - we can communicate it in a way that really resonates with your ideal talent, and makes them choose you over larger organizations that may not be the right fit.
