Bringing Marketing and Product Development Together

Marketing Podcast with Jill Soley
Podcast Transcript

Jill Soley headshotOn this episode of the Duct Tape Marketing Podcast, I visit with author and product and marketing executive Jill Soley.

Soley has been developing, launching, and nurturing products for nearly 20 years; she’s currently the Chief Product Officer at the agile project management software firm Obo.

Over the years, she’s learned a lot about how critical it is to bring together product management and marketing efforts. She’s brought together all of her learnings into a book, Beyond Product: How Exceptional Founders Embrace Marketing to Create and Capture Value for Their Business.

Soley hopes to help entrepreneurs who don’t have a strong marketing background find success for their products and their businesses as a whole. She shares some of her insights from the book on this episode.

Questions I ask Jill Soley:

  • What’s the difference between marketing for non-marketers and regular old marketing?
  • How does the go-to-market approach vary between  services versus products?
  • What are the five things a company must do once they’ve completed the early research stage?

What you’ll learn if you give a listen:

  • Why it’s important to get market validation and to do product testing with real potential customers (not just your friends!).
  • Why it’s important to start customer segmentation early on in your process.
  • Why companies need to start by defining their ideal customer.
