Tell us a little bit more about Product2Market?
We are a leading European Lead Generation Agency that enables high-performance organisations to drive revenues more strategically. Established in 2010, Product2Market has grown to become the “go-to” company for Solution Sales-focused organisations looking to grow market share across European markets.
Headquartered in Dublin, Ireland, we are strongly positioned for access to multilingual sales talent and Tech-sector culture.As a company we have a strategic focus on performance, quality and client ROI.
Our approach to Lead Generation is driven by rich content, qualitative engagement and highly trained Sales people. We have the ability to dive deep into specific markets and target territories, to access the right level of decision makers to deliver maximum client returns. What separates Product2Market from all other agencies is our approach to high-quality Lead Generation. Our approach is a combination of Data, Systems and People in a process we call – TARGET | ENGAGE | ENABLE
All of our client campaigns are built on a solid foundation of great prospect data. In most cases, Product2Market will build a target database to ensure the correct decision makers/qualification points are in focus at all times. We believe that maximum ROI can only be achieved by working with the right assets, so rich target data is an integral part of our service and the first way we deliver client value.
We have extensive data provider relationships across Europe and have the ability to source, append and enrich prospect lists to ensure our campaigns always have laser focus. Product2Market can perform “deep-dive” activity into specific industries, countries or role-types to build qualified, “opt-ins” for robust Inbound and Outbound Marketing.

Only then do we follow up with qualifying Sales calls to assess interest level, business needs, purchasing cycles and budget.
