Product marketing burnout: interview red flags

Ranee drops some great tips on signals to watch out for when interviewing for product marketing roles, including how disorganization hints to deeper structural issues, disrespect is a sign of toxicity, and a lack of product leadership indicates multiple GTM and alignment issues.

It’s worth saying that for some people, these situations and cultures can be an exciting opportunity to create change. But it doesn’t suit everyone, and that’s fine.

Hybrid SaaS GTM tips from Slack

I love these tips from the SVP of Product at Slack, on how product can support hybrid (both self-service and sales-led) go-to-markets:

  • Build consumer-grade tools
  • Focus on comprehension & desirability
  • Avoid the “owner’s delusion”
  • Foster advocates with a great product
  • Make trials/freemium robust + plentiful
  • Align on north star metrics
  • Land organically in large enterprises
