“I absolutely need a vendor who is a partner; there’s almost no exception to that need. ... security is so complex and touches so much and overlays all of the infrastructure and changes so quickly that you need a vendor who is an advisor.”

Terry Grogan, CISO  Pixel Health

Transforming Vendors Into Trusted Partners

We help you build credibility and gain trust

CISO’s trust vendors who understand their problems—and can demonstrate that knowledge.  They have zero trust in vendors who rely on FUD and breach shaming to get their attention, "complete solution" panaceas lack credibility- and generic "show up and throw up" demos, won't make you a trusted advisor.

Gaining trust requires a personalized and problem-focused approach.

We'll work with you to identify and profile your best-fit customers, their firmographics, demographics, key stakeholders, pain points, and buying triggers, add market and competitive intelligence, and craft innovative strategies that reflect your unique business identity and value proposition.

Let us help you become a trusted advisor 

 

A DDoS Attack on Growth 

The buying environment is a Distributed-Denial-of-Sales, so complex and exhausting it often results in no-decision.

The tsunami of incoming messages, meeting requests, and irrelevant, generic, content, demos, and presentations to the buying team force it to slow down or even crash and shut down, thereby denying sales to qualified vendors. 

The opportunity for vendors who proactively guide buying teams through purchase decisions with information tailored to their needs is huge.

Our approach builds trust and results in a simpler more relevant buying experience because it's focused on the buyer and aligns sales and marketing from awareness to revenue.

"The organizations that will succeed going forward will be those that materially simplify the purchase process for customers. It’s on marketing and sales teams to take the customer by the hand and guide them through the purchase, from start to end. "Gartner

Experience Matters!

LEVERAGE OUR DECADES OF EXPERIENCE 

We've brought to market dozens of products across the security ecosystem 

Cybersecurity is more than a technology problem - it's a complex web of people, processes, and technology. You need a marketing resource that can connect all the dots between the customer's problems and environment, your offering, the competition, and potential barriers to adoption, and then craft a winning strategy. 

We're not intimidated by complexity: be it APIs, protocols, or the algorithms that power intelligent solutions, the alphabet soup of compliance requirements and security frameworks, or processes for the SOC or SDLC. And we understand the many roles, challenges, and competing demands of the people responsible for protecting their organizations against well-funded and sophisticated attackers.

We know that in the rapidly evolving threatscape and multi-dimensional ecosystem of competitive and complementary products that opportunities to create new market categories, enter new markets, and create partnerships can appear suddenly, then slip away just as fast.   

Innovative strategy defies plug ‘n play models and requires laser focus on the customers problems-not the product. As well as lots of experience marketing and selling on the front lines, creative, problem-solving skills, and focused thought. We take the time to assess and think deeply about each client’s unique position. Finding new opportunities, previously hidden angles, and alternatives is our specialty.

And Experience Delivers Results

As an early-stage company, we faced the challenge of having a robust technology that could be applied to a broad set of use cases across several industries. Mark’s technical depth and extensive experience allowed him to quickly grasp our technology and rapidly identify its core differentiators against a multitude of security offerings in the market. 

He identified several high potential market segments. ran micro-campaigns to test and validate them -and generated over 2400 leads.

His work laid the foundation for our Marketing organization and established our go-to-market strategy. His no-nonsense, objective and methodical approach helped us focus our efforts and maximize our limited resources to accelerate our rapid growth."

"APMG played a significant role in our growth and positioned us for a successful exit by acquisition.

We worked with Mark and his team for over 2 years and they were instrumental in our turnaround.  They developed our go-to-market strategy, repositioned us to enter new markets, overhauled our messaging and website, implemented Inbound marketing, and worked closely with our sales teams to drive these changes.

I’ve come to regard Mark as a trusted advisor and highly recommend the work of Agile Product Marketing Group"

"Mark's outside perspective was invaluable as he brought together company leadership in a series of workshops that pushed us to move from a product focus to a problem/solution focus centered on our customer's challenges.

He helped us zero in on our target customer profile and key differentiators, and developed new messaging to re-position the company, update our sales process, and website.

...And he’s a great guy to work with!"
