Entrepreneur Sujan Patel also believes in “being customer obsessed.” He will speak about customer-driven growth and how to build a framework through content and community. Although everything we do as inbound marketers is for the customer, it can challenging to keep your eye on that singular goal, especially in the midst of KPIs and other growth measurements. Patel will show us how to create content that provides solutions to customer problems. Don't miss his presentation at HUG18. The C Factor: A Customer-Driven Growth Framework, will guide you through providing more value to create longer-lasting connections.
