Product Marketing

Product development is often managed by the technical department. Certainly the technical team should be heavily involved, but it’s also important to ensure that when it’s launched, the new product meets the demands of your customers and prospects. This is where product marketing comes in.

Demand-led NPD

There are two ways to approach product development: design-led and demand-led.
• Design-led product development is where the product designers come up with the ideas. They say to the sales team, ‘we can make this, now go and sell it!’
• Demand-led product development is where the commercial team say to the product designers, ‘we have demand for this, now go and make it!’

Of course it’s not always quite so black and white, and a collaborative approach would pool ideas for new products from across the business and from market research and then prioritise them according to the level of commercial opportunity and the practicalities of designing, sourcing and manufacturing the products in question.
