Year round learning for product, design and engineering professionals

product and growth marketing at Web Directions Summit

It might seem a little outside our usual area of focus, but let’s see how our brand new product and growth marketing track fits into the big picture of Web Directions Summit.

When we started nearly 20 years ago, if you worked on the Web, you probably did just about everything yourself. From the code (mostly HTML and CSS back then) to copywriting, design, and even operations (smushing those images, concatenating the files).

Over the past two decades, industry roles have become increasingly specialised (and complex and sophisticated), but our underlying mission, to be an event for the whole team, has remained.

And while designing and building the product had remained foundational–getting people to try it, and keep using it is also critical.

So we turned to two folks we know and trust, Mary Nolan and Anna Harrison, to help put together an actionable, ethical track, to help your team do just that. No hand waving and tricks to ‘beat the algo’ but deep insights into pricing, experiments, product lead growth and a healthy dose of behavioural science.

Whether you’ve got an early stage product looking for product market fit, or a mature product that needs to get to the next level, whether you’re a startup, a scaleup or in the enterprise, you’ll come away with plenty of ideas for each part of the product lifecycle.
