Why just a build a company when you can create a whole new category instead? That’s the question that Influitive founder and CEO Mark Organ explored in his packed Achievers Tech Talk discussion on Feb 18, 2014.
Here’s one really good reason: category creators tend to grow revenue 4x faster and grow market cap 6x faster than those companies that enter a category later on.
Based on Mark’s experience building marketing automation category creator Eloqua, what he’s learned so far as Influitive (http://influitive.com) carves out a brand new category – advocate marketing – a little over a decade later, and his observations on why other powerful category creators, including Salesforce.com, Tesla and Keurig, have been so successful, his presentation proposes a whole new framework for category creation.
