About The Talk
One of the most challenging but important parts of building a growth plan for a B2B startup is figuring out your demand generation strategy.
While demand generation has a lot in common with lead generation, the difference is you’ll be aiming to identify high-potential prospects that are more likely to convert. While it may take more time and effort, a successful demand gen strategy will find your sales and marketing teams having better conversations with customers, and a nurturing process that gives your sales team higher-quality leads.
To learn more about demand gen, we’re excited to chat with Fung-Lin Wu, Director of Retention Marketing at MongoDB, a database technology company based in NYC. Prior to her role at MongoDB, she worked on the marketing teams at companies like Datadog, Managed by Q, and DigitalOcean.
Join us as we dive into her best advice on building awareness, identifying the best prospects, and creating an effective demand generation strategy.
