G2Crowd is disrupting the traditional analyst quadrants. The online B2B software review company has built an impressive community made up of over 100,000 crowdsourced reviews from real-life users, then turns those thousands of data points into trend reports, a la Gartner and Forrester. In this episode of Stack & Flow, G2’s Chief Marketing Officer, Adrienne Weissman, shares her thoughts on how consumer review sites have helped to shape the B2B software buyer’s expectations, what the relatively young company is doing to drum up demand generation, and why good project management helps align their sales and marketing team for better ideation and execution.
