BC Startup Sales Podcast – Finding The Right Marketing Metrics For Your Team with Bill Macaitis

April 25, 2020

This week, the Bowery Capital team hosted Bill Macaitis, a former marketing executive from Slack, Zendesk, Salesforce and many more, who continues to advise the world’s fastest growing SaaS companies today. On the podcast we discuss “Finding The Right Marketing Metrics For Your Team,” drawing from the best practices that Bill applied to his extremely successful teams through many stages of growth.

Bill has a passion for how to scale and structure go-to-market at SaaS companies to achieve hyper-growth with a unique customer centric approach. He spends his day-to-day working with CEOs to design, recruit, interview and build out world class marketing and GTM organizations, and has successfully done so for the likes of Slack, Zendesk, Salesforce and more in recent memory. As an energetic Star Trek and startup fan alike, he’s all about planning for the future, and executing on its foundation today.

In a marketing world full of more acronyms than the human mind can grasp, and the rise of specialized functions like demand generation and account-based marketing, how do we hone in on proper measurement? In today’s episode, Bill breaks it down for us from A to Z, “beginner” to “expert” level metrics, and methods to get your marketing team on the right track. Deciding what to measure is one thing, but actually capturing the information is another challenge. With this in mind, Bill also takes some time to share his favorite methods with us for capturing data, from NPS and CSAT surveys to in-product analytics and more. Whether you’re brand new to marketing, or a seasoned veteran looking for inspiration, Bill’s advice on how to get your marketing measurement strategy kickstarted is invigorating, fun, and informative.
