Drama at HubSpot as CMO Fired After Book Investigation


By Anita Campbell HubSpot has fired Mike Volpe, its long-time Chief Marketing Officer, for “ethical violations” involving a book about the company. One other executive, Joe Chernov, Vice President of Content, resigned. And the company has sanctioned a third executive, Brian Halligan, Hubspot s Chairman and CEO, for not reporting the employees actions to the Board of Directors in a timely manner. Halligan is also one of the founders of the company — but now that it is publicly traded has to answer to the Board of Directors. The inbound marketing software company s press release says that Volpe was terminated for ethical violations “in connection with attempts to procure a draft manuscript of a book involving the Company.” It s an unusual situation.

Desired Outcome is a Transformative Concept

desired-outcome-transformativeOne of the most powerful concepts I’ve ever come across in business is the idea of the customer’s Desired Outcome.

And if you’re thinking “one of the most powerful concepts in business” seems like a pretty hefty charge, you’re right; this concept has transformational properties.

When I first introduced Desired Outcome, I explained that this idea came about as a simple replacement for “what does Success mean to your customer?”

But it’s so much more than that… let’s dig in a bit.


Quick Refresher on Definition of Customer Success

First, remember that when your customers achieve their Desired Outcome through their interactions with your company, that is customer success.

And the process used to proactively ensure your customers achieve their – or to orchestrate – Desired Outcome, is what we call Customer Success Management. That is both a function within an organization and software product category (like Gainsight).

Read my Definitive Guide to Customer Success for a great primer on this concept if it’s new you.

Desired Outcome has Two Parts

The two parts of Desired Outcome are: Required Outcome and Appropriate Experience

In the original article on Desired Outcome I went into detail on how to think about the two parts, but as I’ve been traveling around the world and sharing this concept with my clients and at conferences I could tell there was still a disconnect.

But it was at a private event in Toronto where I keynoted and facilitated a workshop that I finally figured out how to best describe the two parts of Desired Outcome.

This is awesome… here we go.

First Part: Required Outcome

Required Outcome is the job to be done, the thing your customer is trying to accomplish; it’s what gets you in the game. If you can’t help them achieve this, that’s a total non-starter.

This is where a lot of companies focus, especially in the early days (see the MVP example in the original article).

Okay, cool… your product helps them achieve the required outcome; great. But can the required outcome be achieved any other way than your product?

For most (seriously, most) products, the answer is absolutely yes.

Whether it’s a commercial competitor, open source software, DIY project, or manual labor, the thing the customer needs to get done can probably be achieved in myriad ways.

Which is why we need the other side of the equation…

Second Part: Appropriate Experience

Required Outcome, no offense to it, is really nothing without Appropriate Experience.

Anyone can slap together some features and functionality that could help someone achieve their Required Outcome and call it a “product” (and many do!)… but if it doesn’t help your customer achieve that Required Outcome in the right way – the way THEY want or need to achieve it – then you failed to deliver the appropriate experience.

Put a different way… Appropriate Experience is why they buy your product and not another. Appropriate Experience is your differentiator; it’s why you exist. It’s why customers choose you over the other options.

Appropriate Experience is – BTW – just that; appropriate. It doesn’t mean Awesome, Modern, Great, or Rich… if you’re selling to tech startups, you might be okay launching with just an API. As you move beyond early adopters, you may need to build a UI to provide that new cohort of customers the appropriate experience.

Eventually you may need to have a full-blown suite of products with a rich UI; but that’s a function of who your customer is and their Desired Outcome.

Which is why when you mix Desired Outcome with a well-designed Ideal Customer Profile… you’ve got Growth Rocket Fuel!

Be Skeptical of Those Promising Top Ranking on Google


By Michael Guta You ve probably heard it a million times. If it sounds too good to be true, then it probably is. But human nature being what it is, there is always someone trying to take advantage of another person who is not well informed. And ranking on Google is one of those areas where this happens — a lot. Business owners across the U.S. have been plagued recently by calls from a company or companies offering to improve their search engine positioning. Whether it is through email or phone calls, the marketing effort of these companies is convincing if you re new to online business. But that was not the case when Dave Delaney received a call. Delaney is an award-winning 15-year veteran marketer, and a trusted name in the industry. He was featured by Forbes as a professional networking expert to watch in 2015.
