This presentation and video are from my talk at 2020 G2 Reach conference in San Francisco. It shows how startups can use their brand as a demand accelerator. A great brand makes it easier for your sales and growth teams to sell the products. Customers are more likely to buy from a brand that has a clear positioning, that is well-known in their industry, and acts as a trusted partner. The talk covers how to:
- Become relevant with thought leadership, domain expertise, relevant content that is helpful for companies not only during the buying process.
- Build credibility with user reviews, Word-of-Mouth, customer recommendations, analyst reports, and by building personal relationships.
- Build trust by acting as a partner, showing (not only talking about) references and the quality of your products, show your team, and let customers look behind the scenes
