How to Win at Category Design as a Product Team

The strategic secret behind the most successful companies is not simply product innovation or a disruptive business model - it's category creation. The highest growth companies leverage the power of category design and product design in tandem to increase their chance of product-market fit and build differentiation. In this session, Tamara will share her own experience building a new category as Unbounce transitioned from a landing page builder to a multi-product conversion intelligence platform. She will provide insights on how to bring customer development, category creation, and product innovation together into one cross-functional strategy to drive success in category creation.
