The Market and Product Sweet Spot

The Market and Product Sweet Spot
February 15, 2017 James

When a baseball player connects with the ball in the perfect location on the bat, the momentum of the bat and the ball come together to get the perfect hit. That’s what is called finding the sweet spot. Wouldn’t it be great if every hit connected perfectly with the sweet spot?

In marketing, the sweet spot is when a product or service connects in that perfect place with our customer’s felt need. Much time, effort, and expense are spent in discovering how to connect with that sweet spot.

My experience in the corporate world brought this challenge into focus for me. I had worked at large corporations where many layers of communication muffled the conversation between the customer and the decision-makers at the top. Often the felt need of the customer got completely lost in a nicely arranged, yet difficult to decipher stack of charts and market analysis numbers. I knew we could do better.

Finding the customer’s voice in all the noise.

In marketing terms, we call the process of actually connecting with the customer’s desire, expectation, and resistance the Voice of Customer (VOC for short). In the large corporate model of marketing, we found this voice was being drowned out by the numbers and sometimes meaningless data.

That’s how Rally was born. What we envisioned was a streamlined process for decision-makers to connect with their ideal customers or sales prospects in meaningful ways that actually indicated the need for action.
