Marketing is one of the most painstaking challenges for any startup and has become even more critical over the past several years. It is much harder today to differentiate by having “better” product - barriers to entry are low and there are at least 5 other startups doing something similar to you - if you don’t think so, you haven’t looked hard enough yet.
What often separates the successful startup from the not-so-successful startup is marketing.
If you can figure out a way to more efficiently and cheaply acquire customers than your competition, chances are, you’ll win. It helps to have a great product, but let's face it: that's no longer enough.
