A Market in Search of a Product

Many companies today focus on creating a product and then finding their market, but is that the best way to go?

Product marketing expert Kevin Krusiewicz of Marketing Trail Guide joins Pragmatic Live host Rebecca Kalogeris to discuss the importance of understanding your market before creating and marketing your products. Understanding who is going to use and buy your product, performing market research and really understanding the different buying journeys of your personas ensures that you’re not building and marketing a product in search of a market, and are instead creating and presenting a product a market has been searching for.
