Coffee with a Product Marketer #6 – Amanda Goetz, Director of Product Marketing @ The Knot (XO Group)

Amanda grew up on a farm in central Illinois and came to New York to work on “the internet.” She got her ‘MBA equivalent’ and appreciation for what it takes to build & launch products after running a startup for 2 years. Hear how she manages the “cold war” balance of power between product management & marketing, among other things.

Sales – Your sales culture is killing your business

There’s a massive elephant in the room when it comes to B2B sales: put simply, it’s impossible for your business to be “customer centric” whilst you continue to run a sales focused culture.

Career – Reasons NOT to accept a counter offer from your employer

Product – Want your product team to get better? Start doing retrospectives

(Video!…and Will Ferrel memes!) A retrospective is a simple concept: Your team steps out of their day-to-day work and reflects on what’s going great and what’s not going so great within the team, with projects, or the company. This simple act of taking a step back from the reactionary state that most teams are locked into is a huge contributor to their continued improvement and well being.
