How Druva is Transforming Marketing to Align with the Modern Buyer’s Journey

Druva CMO Ash Parikh and Vinay Bhagat, TrustRadius’ Founder and CEO, discuss how Druva’s team has successfully shifted their marketing and sales strategies to reach and meet modern-day buyers, exactly where they are. They discuss the post-pandemic market shifts that Ash has seen first-hand, along with actionable steps that Druva has taken to adapt to these new behaviors.

Topics include:

  • How shifting from an “vendor-centric” to “buyer-centric” mindset is successfully transforming Druva’s GTM strategy
  • How Druva’s demand generation campaigns adapted to today’s buyer preferences
  • How intent data helps Druva send contextual content or “hot nurtures,” based on buyer stage and engagement, and in a timely manner

TrustRadius’ Trust Talks series highlights B2B executives’ approach to building a culture of listening to customers, activating the customer voice, and creating a customer-driven company.
