Chris has become a mini-marketing-celebrity on Linkedin and is using the playbook he advocates for as the way to generate high quality demand gen: Share valuable content consistently and when buyers are ready they will come to you. In this podcast we discuss what to do and what not to do when you are an early-stage company. We also discuss what companies that are scaling from $50 M - $100 M need to know about generating high quality demand.
