Central Infrastructure

Product Marketing

Product marketing plays a crucial role in driving the success of a business, encompassing various responsibilities such as bringing new products to market, identifying market needs, and maximising revenue streams.

To excel in product marketing, it is important to adopt a comprehensive approach that involves thorough market research and analysis. This involves conducting market research to understand customer preferences, competitor offerings, and market trends. By pinpointing market needs and opportunities, product marketers can develop effective strategies to position and differentiate their products in the marketplace. 

Bringing new products to market requires careful planning and execution. Product marketers are responsible for developing compelling product messaging and positioning that highlights the unique value proposition of the product. This involves crafting persuasive marketing materials, such as product descriptions, sales presentations, and promotional content, to effectively communicate the benefits and features of the product to target customers.

In addition to product positioning, product marketers are also responsible for creating and implementing go-to-market strategies. This involves identifying the target audience, defining distribution channels, and developing pricing strategies that align with market dynamics and customer expectations. Product marketers collaborate closely with cross-functional teams, such as sales, marketing, and product development, to ensure a coordinated and successful product launch.

By embracing virtual technology for product marketing training, businesses can overcome geographical barriers, increase accessibility, and foster a collaborative learning culture. The cost-effectiveness, scalability, flexibility, and interactive nature of virtual product marketing contribute to an enhanced and immersive learning experience for participating stakeholders.

Virtual product knowledge as well as product launches ensures consistent messaging and knowledge transfer, as all participants can access the same information and training materials. This fosters a unified approach to product marketing and facilitates effective collaboration among team members.

One-Size-Fits-All Doesn't Cut It

All participants in virtual meetings and conferences are presented with the same content despite obvious differences, goals and interests. As such, it is very difficult to maintain an informative, up-to-date and on-brand gateway to all of the business-critical partners, simply because a 'one-size-fits-all' doesn't cut it. 

Not Assisting the Audience

This makes it difficult to know if partners, distributors and other sales channels have prioritised, engaged in, and understood your latest sales materials, product launches, and available products. The digital 'contact process' is not scalable nor personalised thus it does not efficiently assist sales channels in finding product information and pinpointing best solutions.

Leaving Money on the Table

This has a negative impact on the business's network of partners, as training tasks become more tedious, communication more intrusive, and the process of ensuring everyone is on the same page more time-consuming, which inevitably has a negative impact on the bottom line.

Sell More, Recommend Better

One single source-of-truth where external business partners, sales channels, and internal stakeholders can see, learn, and engage with relevant product -and sales material, in a time- and cost efficient manner, to train and enable themselves to sell more, recommend better, and knowledge share more effectively.

Know Engagement Paths

Route attendees properly and differentiate content per attendees to make sure engagement rates are in the favourable spectrum. Better guidance and recommendations increases the likelihood of returning audiences. Make everything on-brand and bring the company’s identity to life and showcase banners, logos, and promotional materials, added to fit specific needs. This foster inspiration and connectivity. Know engagement paths by having attendee data and analytics to provide an understanding of the event engagement on a granular level, ultimately giving you the opportunity to make more informed decisions on current and future events.

Ensuring Clear Expectations

One of the key challenges is the misalignment between business partners and their enablement strategies. Many organisations struggle to define and communicate clear expectations, leading to confusion and inefficiencies in partner relationships.

Equipping Business Partners

Business partners often require specific knowledge and skills to effectively represent and sell a company's products or services. However, there can be gaps in their understanding of the business, industry, or target market, which hinders their ability to deliver value and achieve desired outcomes.

Providing Adequate Resources

Adequate resources and support are crucial for effective partner enablement. However, organisations may face limitations in terms of time, budget, or dedicated personnel to provide comprehensive training, coaching, and ongoing support to their partners.

Streamlining Ramp-up

Partner onboarding and ramp-up processes can be time-consuming and complex, particularly for partners who are new to the organisation or its offerings. Delays in getting partners up to speed can result in missed opportunities and revenue loss.

Establishing Robust Metrics

Measuring the effectiveness and return on investment (ROI) of partner enablement programs can be challenging. Organisations need robust metrics and tracking mechanisms to assess the impact of enablement efforts on partner performance and overall business outcomes.

Consistent Enablement Programs

As organisations grow and expand their partner network, maintaining scalability and consistency in enablement becomes a challenge. Ensuring that enablement programs can accommodate different partner types, regions, and levels of expertise is crucial for sustained success.

Staying Agile and Adapting

Technology advancements and evolving market dynamics require continuous adaptation and up-skilling. Organisations must stay agile in updating their enablement strategies to keep pace with changing trends, technologies, and customer demands.
Paving the Way

Manoeuvring with Confidence

Designing the Blueprint to Success

Give your virtual product marketing training strategy the same level of importance as any other training program, whether it's conducted internally or externally.

Take into account the unique needs and requirements of your sales channels to empower them for success. Establish relevant metrics to measure the effectiveness of your partnership and continuously evaluate and improve your approach.

Create an inclusive and supportive virtual learning environment that encourages collaboration, knowledge sharing, and engagement among your product marketing partners. Utilise technology tools and platforms that facilitate seamless communication, interactive training activities, and access to relevant resources.


  • Identify and monitor key learning metrics specific to product marketing training, such as course completion rates and engagement of monthly active learners. Additionally, define business metrics that demonstrate the impact of the training on revenue growth, customer retention, and market share expansion.

  • Appoint an executive sponsor who will advocate for your product marketing training program, providing the necessary support and guidance to drive its success.

  • Develop learner personas to gain insights into the unique characteristics, preferences, and requirements of your target audience in product marketing. Tailor your training materials and delivery methods accordingly to maximise their effectiveness.

  • Select content mediums and delivery methods that align with the nature of product marketing training. Leverage a mix of multimedia elements, such as videos, interactive presentations, and real-life case studies, to create engaging and impactful learning experiences.

  • Assess the ongoing support and resources required to facilitate continuous learning and development among your product marketing partners. Offer access to additional learning materials, coaching, and mentorship to enhance their skills and capabilities.

  • Establish a feedback system that encourages your sales channels to provide valuable insights and suggestions for improvement. Regularly review and incorporate feedback to refine your product marketing training program and ensure its relevance and effectiveness.

  • Develop an implementation timeline that outlines the rollout and execution plan for your product marketing training initiatives. This structured approach ensures a coordinated and successful implementation, enabling your partners to benefit from the training at the right time.



Advancing to the Next Level

Foster transparent and open lines of communication with your sales channels to address critical questions and concerns related to your product marketing training program. Regularly engage in discussions to promote a collaborative and productive relationship.

Recognise and understand the unique challenges and opportunities presented by virtual product marketing training. Customise your strategy to address factors such as remote engagement, technological requirements, and the adaptability of training materials to different formats.

Implement robust feedback mechanisms to gather valuable insights from your sales channels and continually refine your virtual product marketing training program. Foster an environment of open dialogue and actively seek feedback to ensure the program meets the evolving needs of your partners.


  • Ensure alignment between the product marketing training teams, the business, and your sales channels on key performance indicators (KPIs). Establish shared goals and metrics to track progress and drive mutual success.

  • Measure the impact of product marketing training on revenue generation by tracking new and recurring revenue resulting from your sales channel partnerships. Evaluate the effectiveness of the training in driving sales growth and identify areas for improvement.

  • Analyse lost sales deals to identify patterns and address specific use cases that may not be effectively addressed through current product marketing training. Gather feedback from your sales channels to understand areas where training gaps exist and take necessary steps to bridge them.

  • Proactively seek feedback from your sales channels to understand their perspectives on the product marketing training program. Determine the most valuable topics and courses that contribute to their success. Optimise training mediums, such as slides, videos, and quizzes, to deliver engaging and impactful training experiences.

  • Accommodate the preferred method of delivering product marketing training content for your sales channels. Offer flexibility in content delivery to cater to varying learning preferences and maximise engagement and knowledge retention.

  • Evaluate the utilisation and effectiveness of enablement materials among your sales and marketing channels. Identify patterns and similarities in engagement to better align training content with their needs and preferences.

  • Evaluate the reception and utilisation of mandatory product marketing training content. Continuously assess its effectiveness and make necessary improvements to ensure its impact on enhancing sales channel capabilities.

Tackling the Existing Obstacles Directly and Effectively

Lack of clear market positioning: Difficulty in defining a compelling and differentiated value proposition that clearly communicates the unique benefits of the product to the target audience. This can result in confusion and lack of interest from potential customers.

Insufficient market research: Inadequate understanding of customer needs, preferences, and market trends. Without proper research, product marketers may struggle to develop relevant messaging, identify the right target audience, and make informed marketing decisions.

Limited marketing budget: Constraints in allocating sufficient resources to execute comprehensive marketing campaigns and initiatives. A tight budget may limit the ability to invest in effective advertising, content creation, or hiring skilled marketing professionals.

Inconsistent branding: Inability to maintain consistent brand messaging and visual identity across different marketing channels and touchpoints. Inconsistent branding can lead to confusion among customers and dilute the overall brand image.

Difficulty in measuring marketing ROI: Challenges in accurately assessing the impact of marketing efforts on sales and revenue generation. Without proper tracking and measurement mechanisms in place, it becomes challenging to justify marketing investments and optimise strategies for better results.

Ineffective lead generation: Inability to generate high-quality leads and nurture them through the marketing funnel to conversion. This can be due to inadequate lead generation strategies, ineffective lead capture mechanisms, or insufficient follow-up efforts.

Poor content strategy: Lack of a well-defined content marketing strategy that addresses the informational needs of the target audience and supports lead generation. Without a strategic approach to content creation, marketers may struggle to engage and educate potential customers effectively.

Inadequate marketing technology stack: Insufficient utilisation of marketing automation tools, customer relationship management (CRM) systems, and analytics platforms to streamline marketing activities and drive data-driven decision-making. This can hinder marketing effectiveness and limit the ability to personalise marketing efforts.

Ineffective marketing communication: Challenges in crafting compelling and persuasive marketing messages that effectively communicate the value of products to target customers. Without effective communication, marketing efforts may fail to resonate with the audience and drive desired actions

Limited collaboration with sales teams: Ineffective alignment and communication between product marketing and sales teams, resulting in missed opportunities and disjointed customer experiences. Close collaboration between these teams is crucial for successful product launches and driving revenue.

Rapidly evolving market landscape: Difficulty in keeping up with changing market dynamics, emerging technologies, and competitive landscape. Failure to adapt to market changes can lead to missed opportunities and an inability to meet evolving customer needs.

Inability to adapt to digital transformation: Challenges in leveraging digital marketing channels and techniques effectively to reach and engage target customers. This can include insufficient digital marketing skills, outdated technology infrastructure, or resistance to change within the organisation.

Inadequate customer segmentation: Lack of precise segmentation and targeting strategies, resulting in inefficient use of marketing resources and messaging that doesn't resonate with the intended audience. Effective segmentation helps deliver more personalised and relevant marketing messages.

Poor product positioning and differentiation: Difficulty in clearly communicating the unique value and differentiation of products in a crowded marketplace. Without a compelling value proposition, products may struggle to stand out and capture customer attention.

Lack of customer-centricity: Insufficient focus on understanding and addressing customer pain points, needs, and aspirations in marketing efforts. Putting the customer at the center of marketing strategies is essential for building strong customer relationships and driving loyalty.

Adapting training content to cater to diverse partner types: Tailoring the training content to cater to diverse partner types and their varying levels of marketing expertise. Recognising that partners such as value-added resellers, distributors, or system integrators may have different roles, responsibilities, and customer interactions. Providing training programs that accommodate both new entrants who require comprehensive onboarding and experienced partners who may benefit from advanced or specialised marketing training modules. Adapting training content to the specific needs and skill levels of partners can optimise their marketing performance and drive better results.

10 Steps to Fuelling Success with Your Product Marketing Program

  1. Define Clear Goals: Establish specific objectives and outcomes you aim to achieve through your product marketing training program. Clearly outline what you want to accomplish and the skills and knowledge you want to impart to your participants.

  2. Assess Training Requirements: Conduct a comprehensive analysis of your product marketing channels to identify their training needs, knowledge gaps, and skill levels. This assessment will help you tailor the program accordingly and address the specific requirements of each channel.

  3. Develop a Well-Structured Curriculum: Design a curriculum that covers essential topics in product marketing, including product knowledge, sales techniques, market insights, and competitive analysis. Ensure the curriculum is structured logically and provides a comprehensive understanding of the subject matter.

  4. Engage Participants with Interactive Content: Utilise a variety of training materials to keep participants engaged and enhance knowledge retention. Incorporate videos, interactive presentations, case studies, and quizzes to make the learning experience dynamic and interactive.

  5. Foster Application of Learning: Include practical exercises and simulations that allow participants to apply their learnings in realistic product marketing scenarios. This hands-on approach helps build confidence and reinforces the knowledge gained during the training.

  6. Encourage Peer Learning: Foster interaction among participants through group activities, discussion forums, and virtual meet-ups. Peer-to-peer learning provides opportunities for sharing experiences, insights, and best practices, enriching the overall learning experience.

  7. Provide Ongoing Support: Offer continuous support and resources, such as playbooks and online forums, to help participants reinforce their learning and address any challenges they encounter during their product marketing efforts. This support system ensures continuous growth and development.

  8. Measure Performance with KPIs: Establish key performance indicators (KPIs) to evaluate the effectiveness of the training program. Track partner progress, measure the impact of the program on their product marketing performance, and identify areas for improvement.

  9. Stay Updated and Relevant: Keep up-to-date with industry trends, product updates, and evolving sales strategies. Ensure that your training program reflects the latest market dynamics and equips participants with the most relevant skills and knowledge.

  10. Seek Participant Feedback: Regularly gather feedback from participants to assess the effectiveness of the program, identify areas of improvement, and make necessary adjustments. Actively incorporate participant input to optimise the product marketing training experience and meet their evolving needs.
