Every Startup Employee is a Marketer

Submitted by James • January 24, 2014 Website: www.instigatorblog.com

In an early, small startup, everyone wears many hats. One of the more important hats for everyone to wear, which doesn’t always come naturally to people, is that of marketer. Most early stage startups don’t have a marketer, and may have very little marketing expertise. This “role” often falls to the CEO, but in a lot of startups the CEO is technical–in fact there really isn’t a CEO–it’s just two developers working on something new. The first hire isn’t a marketer either, it’s another developer…

“Every employee as a marketer” becomes even more important when your customer is a developer. More and more startups are emerging and growing in this space, catering to developers and technology folks. So you’ve got a small team of developers building products for other developers. That small team of developers have to be marketers.

When GoInstant started we were very quiet about what we were building. It was “stealth mode” at its best (or worst?) because we rarely shared what was going on, how things worked, etc. GoInstant was acquired before ever really launching publicly. As a result of how the company started and grew in its first ~2 years, we didn’t do a lot of marketing. And to be fair, the original product and market focus wasn’t on developers–it was large enterprise. The team (which was ~90% developers) didn’t have to go out and market.

    Its pretty amazing when we had to be reminded that marketing is an important functional process or unit of any organization. This is very significant and should readily be acknowledged by every Start-ups.

    Reading this piece titled “Every Startup Employe is a Marketer” reminds me of how GoInstant is compared to many other outfits out there that are taking marketing process from the grassroots. This is quite significant!

    “Every Startup Employee is a Marketer” share a must share takeaways that “One of the more important hats for everyone to wear, which doesn’t always come naturally to people, is that of marketer.”

    I totally agree with this, the thought is convincing.

    A reminder that you are not just an employee, you are a marketer too, you are marketing he name of the company and you are selling yourself.

    Great all in all.
