Your Go-To-Market is Killing Your Business, and You Don't Even Know It

6,586 views

Published on

Modern customers expect that it will be easy to learn about your product and buy it, but most of our go-to-markets do the opposite. We ask people to fill out long forms, we build complex qualification rules, we make it tough for prospects to talk to someone right now. In short, we put up barriers that solve for our companies instead of solving for our customers.

At HubSpot, we’re mid-way through transforming our go-to-market to be customer centric. Learn what’s worked for us, what hasn’t, and what we’re building.

  • A couple of days ago I told you about my friend John Collins who was giving away his new enlargement exercises eBook. Well, he just reached out to me this morning and told me his email inbox literally blew up. He couldn't sort through the 230+ emails he had received in the last 48 hours BEGGING him to reveal more about his enlargement methods. John isn't the most technically savvy guy, and at his typical typing speed I estimate it would probably take him about a year to reply to all those e-mails. So, I convinced him to run a webinar and answer the most common questions about natural penis enlargement that he has been receiving. He is going to reveal some pretty shocking things about the enlargement industry, and what makes his two-step process different than anything else you may have tried. The only problem is, seating is very limited due to server capacity, so to reserve your seat you need to register at the link below. Reserve your seat for John's upcoming natural enlargement webinar ★★★ https://tinyurl.com/yaygh4xh

  • I'll tell you right now (and I've got proof), that anyone who tells you "size doesn't matter to women" is flat out lying to your face and trying to make you feel better... Heck, just recently I asked a focus group of women via an anonymous online survey if size matters, and again and again they said "Oh my god, I HATE IT when it's SMALL." For a long time I didn't know what to tell the guys who'd write in to me and ask how to get "bigger." I'd say something lame like "Women actually like guys who are smaller... you just have to get good with your hands." Then I found "THE BIBLE of Penis Enlargement" by this guy named John Collins ●●● https://tinyurl.com/ydaetwbk
