Not *another* Happy New Year article you might be saying while simultaneously eye-rolling. 🙄 Yeah, we get you, but bear with us - ours is packed with a punch.
This year’s been nothing short of awesome for us. We launched back in March as a one-man-band (shout out to Rich!) with nothing but a name. Fast-forward to today and the community’s swollen up to more than 6,200 product marketers and we’ve published some pretty groundbreaking industry reports - if we do say so ourselves. 🤷🏼
So, here’s a timeline of some of our biggest achievements…

- 203 tried, tested and recommended tools
- 15 segments, including competitive intel, sales enablement, messaging and onboarding
- Lots of first-hand endorsements

Product Marketing Salary Survey
# of downloads: 7,000
At the very start of December, we released our much-anticipated salary survey results and you could say the number of downloads show it went down a storm!
In it, we answer pressing questions like, how much does where you are on the map matter? How do salaries change as you move up the ladder? Does leadership support impact pay? Are product marketers around the world happy with their remuneration? And that’s just the tip of the iceberg.
Because (spoiler) geography did play a pretty big part in salaries, we put together three versions for people to choose from:
“Excellent effort by the entire team. Beautifully laid out and filled with valuable information. I love the various ways you broke out the data.”
- Kim West
“Awesome work Richard King & Co - lots of very clean insights.”
- Will Deagan
“This team is one of a kind! 🙂Amazing work.”
- Despina Exad
