Workshop 3: Putting Customers First: The Key to Business Growth
Goal: A go-to-market strategy and product strategy work together to establish the brand and reputation of the product, building trust with customers and making them more likely to buy both now and in the future. The benefits of a well-crafted pitching strategy include the ability to effectively communicate the value proposition of the product or service, create a sense of urgency and excitement around it, differentiate it from competitors, and ultimately persuade customers to make a purchase.
The initial stage of the workshop focuses on aligning the go-to-market and product strategies before launching any product or service. This ensures that the value proposition is effectively communicated to the target audience and that the product meets their needs and expectations. The second part of workshop will help startups to better understand the perspectives of buyers and develop sales and/or pitch strategies that will be more efficient and successful.
The training is divided into two sections:
- Go-to-market and Product Strategy
Outcome: Define the first or second hypothesis of a minimum viable segment (MVS) aligned with a minimum viable product (MVP) because a killer go-to-market always wins over a great product.
- Pitching for success: How to make customers buy
Outcome: This workshop will make you sell more successfully by changing your perspective: from focus how to sell to the focus, how to make the customer buy. There are many sellers who sell, but the customer at the end buys from one – how to make it that the one is you. The workshop will give you some basic solutions that can effectively influence the behaviour of your potential buyer and make him/her buy from you. You will get a sample road map and techniques, that you can use immediately, on how to enter a selling process, be confident, drive the process and achieve success.
