In episode #2591, we discuss how to market in a competitive market with little to no money. We emphasize that it is not possible to outspend competitors who have more money, so as marketers, we need to find alternative strategies. We suggest giving away something for free and charging for something else to penetrate a competitive market. We also discuss the future of marketing, which we believe will be focused on free software and finding blue ocean opportunities. We emphasize the importance of moving quickly and collaborating with others to succeed in a competitive market.
