Today we’ll cut through the jargon of target market, TAM, SAM, and SOM and really understand the key aspects of people who’ll pay us money for our solution. We’ll look at what really drives people to listen to you and how you can build on your passion to become a market leader. We’ll bust some myths and gain insight into a powerful tool which helps you identify what is important to your potential customers. Bring your laptop to gain the most out of this session as we’ll be researching some markets during the workshop.
