Insights from the Grammarly Product Marketing Team

Global Head of Product Marketing
Show up! In my last role, I was on a team where it wasn’t usual for PMM to play a significant role in the PM planning or organization. I showed up, spent time with the leaders, shared what PMM could do (by doing it!), and was consistent and available. I ended up being BFF with the PM lead. Togeth...more

When I started at Grammarly, I did an audit of how PMM mapped to the product organization, our consumer acquisition and growth teams, and our B2B sales teams.

It’s a bummer situation when product and engineering teams don’t deliver on the timeline planned.

We absolutely tier our launches and we do it for 2 specific reasons: * Resources and investment need to match the outcomes we expect from a launch * Not every feature is news! In some cases, bundling features together will tell a more compelling and meaningful story and we are very consciou...more

Yes -- primarily because enablement needs to be cognizant of local conditions and selling paths. For example, in a large enterprise company, you might have a dedicated specialist sales team in AMER but in the regions, you have sellers that sell the entire portfolio.
