Obviously Awesome: Positioning Your Product – April Dunford on The Product Experience

BY ON

April Dunford’s mtpcon Digital 2020 keynote on positioning was so good that we couldn’t pass up the opportunity to dig deeper into the topic with her. This is one of the dark arts for many product people, and it has such a deep effect on everything else you do – take a listen to upgrade your skills and start understanding your customers better.

In this episode, sponsored by Amplitude, listen to learn about:

  • What positioning is
  • How to make a good positioning statement
  • Building a story brand
  • Knowing your market

Quote of the Episode

If your product is in the market, it’s positioned whether you’ve done it deliberately or not. Because your customers will position it – whether you like that or you don’t.
