In today’s market, it’s more important than ever to have a team solely dedicated to understanding market and buyer needs and using that knowledge to ensure your company executes compelling marketing and sales strategies.
That’s why it’s crucial for an organization to define and incorporate a Product Marketing role into their business strategies. Product Marketing is typically an extended part of overall Product Management, but with the primary goal of understanding the market and buyer (their needs, alternatives, buying process, etc.) in relation to the company’s products and services.
Along with creating an understanding of the buyer, Product Marketing role emphasizes on utilizing knowledge of the market, product, product strategy, and competition to enable the Sales and Marketing functions to execute optimally in product related activities.
“Product Marketing is the function accountable for the success and growth of a product by connecting customer needs to product capabilities. The value of Product Marketing comes from its deep understanding of markets, customers and their needs.”
Outlook for 2017 – Role of Big Data

Marketers with access and an understanding of how to use that data can create a distinct, competitive advantage in their ability to provide relevant proposals to the right buyers at the right time.
Dealing with data beyond spreadsheets and reporting to actionable insights about customers that enables everything from predictive analytics to truly automated marketing automation are some of the promises of what’s next in marketing for B2B companies.
