This role is not just running Product Marketing you will be in charge of all of the non-acquisition marketing functions. This includes Content, Brand, Graphic Design, PR,  Events, Analysts, and Association relationship on top of Product Marketing. Brand and  positioning at a SaaS company are largely influenced by the product and how the  messaging of the problem solved is delivered and curated. This is why the Head of  Product Marketing will own all of the marketing functions that support messaging and  positioning.  The ideal candidate will have run teams of 20 or more and have been in  charge of all aspects of Brand and Product Marketing   Product Marketing will know the most about our customers, competition, and how our  solution is different.  Product Marketing is responsible for product messaging, product  positioning, product launches, sales collateral, and market research.  The Product  Marketing team will need to work closely with Sales, Marketing, and Product teams to  deliver on their scope of work. The Product Marketing team will be experts in customer  interviews and surveys to capture the customers’ point of view (POV).  Once the  customer’s POV has been captured a story is created that clearly articulates how  solving the problem is a game-changer for our customers. 

There are 4 main areas the Head of Product Marketing will be a boss.

  1. Customer Research 
  2. Storytelling 
  3. Positioning Strategy 
  4. Sales and Product Usage Metrics 

Customer Research 

Positioning the product requires a dynamic understanding of the customer’s use case.  We need to understand what problems we solve and how the elimination of this  problem makes our customer a superhero.  The ability to interview a customer and  uncover what is beneath the surface is critical.  However, 1:1 interviews won’t provide  enough data to be statistically significant.  The Product Marketing team are also experts 

in running surveys to produce data and insights at scale. The research skills don’t stop  at customers the Product Marketing team knows how our direct competitors solve  customer problems. With a deep understanding of the competition, you position us as  different and minimize feature comparisons.  


Knowing the problems we solve and how we drive our customers’ success is only half  the battle.  The Product Marketing team has to convert our solutions into a narrative  that grabs attention and is memorable. Headlines, subject lines, and talk tracks need to  bring context that resonates with our customers.  We should be viewed as industry  experts because our content is different and always providing value while being  entertaining and useful.  After customers interact with us they have a better  understanding of the problem we solve and why it matters.   

Positioning Strategy 

The Product Marketing team is translating what the Engineering and Product teams  have built to align to our point of view and ​why ​how we solve it matters. The features of  the products are articulated as benefits that resonate with the customers.  Customers  use our narrative to describe how successful they are because of our solutions.  The  category we have built to define the problem we solve is continually paid off with  content from the Product Marketing team.  

Sales and Product Metrics 

Putting forth all the effort to understand the customers and the competitive landscape  to craft the perfect messaging will lead to a measurable impact on sales and product  adoption.  An excellent understanding of the sales and product KPIs is required so you  can recognize what metric the tactic or content is going to influence. Knowing what  drives a prospect to the next pipeline stage or what onboarding content raises product  usage is key when building your communication strategies.
