Go-To-Market Vs. Marketing Strategy

A go-to-market strategy is primarily focused on bringing a product to market fast. Therefore, it is indeed a sub-set of a marketing strategy. However, a marketing strategy has a broader scope. An effective marketing strategy has to comprise also a go-to-marketing strategy. And vice versa, a sustainable go-to-market strategy has to be framed within a broader marketing strategy.

A tech business model is made of four main components: value model (value propositions, mission, vision), technological model (R&D management), distribution model (sales and marketing organizational structure), and financial model (revenue modeling, cost structure, profitability and cash generation/management). Those elements coming together can serve as the basis to build a solid tech business model.

It starts with how new products/services get developed to how these organizations target potential customers (via sales and marketing models) to enable their value proposition to be delivered to create a competitive advantage.
