If you have questions about startups, you can find me and a bunch of other startup fanatics on the free Q&A website:
The following is a guest post by Ilya Mirman. Ilya has spent the past decade running marketing for software vendors including SolidWorks, Interactive Supercomputing (acquired by Microsoft) and Cilk Arts (acquired by Intel).
I recently published an e-Book, “Building the Marketing Plan: A Blueprint for Startups” Summarized in it are some considerations – with respect to messaging, infrastructure, demand generation, process, budgets and timelines – that I’ve found useful across a bunch of markets and companies. [I was amused that in a couple days, it generated more leads for HubSpot – thousands – than I generated in the first year of each of my two startups. A lesson for me in market timing and reach. :) ]
In the spirit of Dharmesh’s “Startup Triplets: Startup Advice In Exactly 3 Words”, here are some of the take-aways from the e-Book.
