When you’re starting a company, there are many things that are top of mind. But what keeps you grounded and what you always get back to is your ideal customer profile (ICP). 

Your ICP is your north star, and it will affect everything about your business: your positioning, messaging, marketing strategy, sales processes. But finding and understanding your customer is not as easy as finding Polaris. Cue: Cameron McAllister, High Alpha’s Go-to-Market Manager.

Finding Your ICP Has Never Been Easier.

At High Alpha, Cam collaborates closely with our founders–alongside the squad–to gain a comprehensive understanding of their target persona. Through meticulous market validation exercises, Cam paints a clear picture of the ICP, so our founders can understand their pain points and pivot the product to provide the most value. How does he do this? Rapid experimentation. 

Cameron’s Secret? Conducting Experiments.

With his expertise, Cam has the ability to survey thousands of people to generate valuable insights and surface unique customer challenges. He conducts messaging experiments, sales and marketing tests, and persona evaluations to develop a repeatable sales playbook that founders can use immediately. Also, like anyone in sales, Cam will do anything to help our founders land a deal. He books customer meetings on their behalf, joins first calls, and provides extra muscle for sales outreach efforts. 

Expert Advice.

When asked what advice he would give CEOs, he brought up vulnerability.

“One of the best things founders can do is be confident enough to express their challenges. Founders want to say everything is going well, but they need to be vulnerable. If we know your challenges, we can help you.”
