The Strategist will work closely with your team to develop a customized go-to-market strategy playbook.

The playbook service includes 5 workshops and an introductory meeting. You'll be guided every step of the way to ensure your go-to-market strategy is effective and drives business.

TOMA sweet spot

The Sweet Spot for TOMA

The Sweet Spot for Top of Mind Awareness (TOMA) is defined as the intersection of two key elements: the common pain points of the target audience and the expertise available within the B2B firm. This concept involves understanding and addressing the specific challenges faced by the audience rather than just promoting product features.

The Sweet Spot defines topics for marketing activities, ensuring consistency and relevance in messaging and tactics. When your firm shares expertise that helps address specific pain points in the target audience, they remember you resulting in TOMA.

When you can establish TOMA, you get the first call and you are in position #1 when a need arises.
