Our Process

We offer a wide variety of marketing management services

The breadth and depth of the marketing services we offer are tailored to your needs. 

New Product Development and Launch Strategy Implementation

New products can increase your accessible market by satisfying the unmet needs of new customers. New products will also broaden your product offering to existing customers and drive increased revenue to your business. Developing a strategy for product launches, however, requires knowledge of the target customers, the channels for reaching them, the competitive and overall market environment. Your new products must contain NUDs: New, Unique, and Difficult to copy features to excite customers and drive demand. Effective marketing and communications tactics will communicate those benefits to customers and channel partners.

Go-To-Market Strategy and Implementation

Your Fractional CMO from Global Launch provides expert advice, direction, and hands-on assistance that gets the message about your product or service delivered efficiently to your specific target audience with maximum impact.

Channel Conflict Management

Channels help your company bring products into the marketplace where purchase decisions are made. But conflicts are unavoidable, and sometimes even desirable. One lesson learned the hard way is "No Conflict equals No Coverage". You need to recognize that channel partners struggle with competing priorities and will always make decisions based on their own best interests, not necessarily yours.

Managing channel conflict requires being intentional and strategic, recognizing and respecting each channel and channel partner’s role and needs. You may need help developing, supporting and encouraging good behavior, both between your channels, and between them and your own sales team.

Sales Pipeline Management

A sales opportunity pipeline is a powerful tool to track and close potential business and predict demand flow and cash flow. It can be as simple as a spreadsheet or as complex as full-blown Customer Relationship Management (CRM) system. Many CRM systems fail. Why? The only two clear requirements for success are: 1) CEO commitment and enforcement that all intended users adopt the system, and 2) that clear guidelines indicate which opportunities must be tracked. Your system must become part of your team’s daily work, and should make that work easier. CRM must not become a beast that needs to be fed data periodically.

The Opportunity Pipeline below (showing actual data from a previous client) displays the sum of all order opportunities for a small manufacturer, shown three different ways.

  • • All Opportunities Total
  • • Probability Weighted Total
  • • Weighted Total, Only High Probabilities

The resulting Order Forecast highlighted some obvious and real business problems:

  • • The next month’s order rate will be very low.
  • • In five months there will be a logjam of orders. Customer lead-time expectations need to be managed carefully.
  • • More business opportunities need to be generated urgently for future months.

Pricing Management

Pricing is both an art and a science. Profitable pricing must become a unifying business objective. Marketers are typically the natural owners of the strategic pricing process. They must change the way they think about the value of their products and services. They must be the change leaders within the organization for price setting, discounting policies, and order negotiation. They must develop systems to track competitive pricing, customer purchase patterns, and price management. Pricing must evolve from a tactical lever to a strategic imperative to drive profitable growth.
