Messaging and Math

Overview of Marketing department and where to find materials

Why "Messaging and Math"?

Rather than always call a department "Marketing" - which is a broad term that involves every interaction prospects, customers, our broader community and the industry has with our brand, product, and company - we use "Messaging and Math" to refer to the core functions of the department:

Messaging: Define and refine the message we send to audiences (prospects, customers, community, and industry) about our position and value. This work spans product marketing, corporate marketing, brand, PR, AR, and corporate communications.

Math: Define and deliver the infrastructure and campaigns to quantitatively advance our audiences in their audience journeys based on their specific interests, needs and questions. This includes website development and optimization and demand generation campaigns across events, advertising, and email.
