Has your marketing strategy ever felt like an overwhelming mess that you’re just making up as you go along? As entrepreneurs, we’re often more attuned with our product than our customer needs, which can easily result in a marketing strategy that feels messy and directionless. In today’s episode, we get together with Christina Del Villar for an accessible breakdown of what makes an exceptional marketing strategy. Find out how entrepreneurs and companies of any size can take action to get clear on their approach, and implement an effective marketing strategy. Christina is a 25-year Silicon Valley marketing executive, and go-to-market veteran, who has worked with the likes of Elon Musk, Sebastian Thrun, and Condoleeza Rice. She works as an advisor, speaker, and is the author of Sway: Implement the G.R.I.T. Marketing Method to Gain Influence and Drive Corporate Strategy. In our conversation with Christina, we discuss the GRIT marketing method and why it’s so effective. We also unpack the steps that entrepreneurs tend to struggle with the most, and why. Tuning in, you’ll also learn about the concept of a pillar piece, how to identify yours, and how to leverage it once you have it. We had a fantastic conversation with Christina and we’re sure you’ll find the conversation every bit as rewarding and informative as we did!

“We all want to be everything to everybody. But you can’t do that. You need to focus, you need to find what your niche is, and really focus and target that, because then your messaging will make more sense, everything will come together.” [0:08:00]

“I think it’s a problem women have, I believe. We need to take credit, that’s it’s okay to do that. It’s not selfish. You’re still supporting your team and I know that it was a team effort, but individuals also need to step up and take ownership of that and celebrate that.” — @cdelvillar [0:31:11]

“At the end of the day, it’s still my choice, right? Again, I think you have to be able to say no, and especially if it’s not in alignment with your strategy or your products and solutions.” — @cdelvillar [0:37:18]
