Startups often struggle to develop the right value proposition to engage their target audiences, making it difficult to gain traction. Often they morph into an inside-out, navel-gazing view of what the company wants to be, but with no relevance to its audience.
No matter how great the product, how dynamic the brand, how efficient the channel planning or how effective the measurement and optimization, if you have the wrong market position your efforts will fail to meet expectations. You will be trudging in quicksand.
This workshop helps entrepreneurs develop a sharp positioning strategy that will connect with and convert customers, optimize your product development around what matters most to your audience, and get the most out of your channels and spend.
