Startup companies in the early stages are different
When startup teams start looking into running ‘out-of-stealth’ marketing, building materials foundations, or an effective inbound marketing operation they become confused. They are not sure what makes sense, out of the huge portfolio of startup marketing strategies that they can find out there while exploring the web doesn’t always help and asking colleagues still doesn’t solve all the questions. The fact that most startup founders don’t come from a marketing background doesn’t help them understand how to kick their marketing off. That’s also the time when a discussion around budget, time, and resources is bound to come up.
Seed-stage startup companies are used to running their product and dev cycles fast, with a small team and with a tight budget. Seed stage marketing has to carry the same principles.
Therefore, such companies must run their marketing journey together with professionals that are experienced with running marketing in these early stages, or they risk failing.
Early-stage startup marketing demands a specific approach:
- Flexibility – The ability to toggle between activities
- Management skills – The ability to work without creating an overhead on the internal founding or management team
- Agility and velocity – The ability to define and execute on KPIs, deliver fast, improve while running, without relying on extensive resources, budgets on long-lasting processes. Easier said than done.
- Technical skills – The ability to deal with deep-tech content and complexities without the need to collaborate with internal resources (as they are super busy)
