NewsCred

NewsCred needed to more fully market their leadership position in the Content Marketing Platform space they had created. Jeffrey led development of a highly differentiated Message Matrix in a few weeks.

Clarifying our positioning and product offering with Jeffrey was crucial to achieving Gartner Magic Quadrant leadership.
