DESCRIPTION

Most marketers, if you asked for the number one thing you’d really want to understand in their field, will probably roll their eyes, look at you like you’re stupid and say something like: “Your buyer persona,” or even, “The market, duh.” 


And most marketers would be wrong… 


What you need to understand more than anything else is your product.


In this Takeover episode, host Amber Khan speaks with Dirk Schart, Chief Marketing Officer & President at RE’FLEKT, who is championing product-first marketing—an approach that creates more cross-team collaboration and, ultimately, more successful marketing.


They discuss:

• Why writing about your product is not the same as understanding it

• Why marketers need to work more closely with product development teams

• Practical ways to shift to a product-first mindset
