Marketing to Your Defined Market
The key to a successful business does not depend on the size of your marketing budget. The Lean Startup model relies on interacting with potential customers early and often so you can incorporate feedback during the product development process. Marketing is good. Finding the right market to serve with quality marketing is better.
