I used many of the strategies from the DGMG marketing group over the summer to help get our company to the necessary revenue numbers that would get us acquired. Happy to say today we announced the acquisition we’ve been working so hard to attain.

Really appreciate the guidance from you and the group. It was so beneficial to have a group of people who care about marketing to bounce ideas off of and learn from.


As a one-woman marketing team, the best part of my week is catching up on tons of valuable @joindgmgcontent. From DG’s podcast to the awesome + inclusive FB Community, I defo recommend it to all marketers.

Just wanted to send an unsolicited shout out to say thanks for all the great content on DGMG.
I’m about to take my first leap out of VP marketing roles at larger companies and into my first CMO position. Your content has me feeling more prepared for the craziness of CMO day-to-day life and some of the surprises I suspect will come my way.
You put frameworks and a voice to concepts I’ve had to learn or intuit through my years of product and corporate marketing.
Thanks for sharing your ideas and your connections. They’re an express pass for marketers who don’t want to learn the hard way by making every mistake. I’ve learned plenty the hard way on my marketing journey already 🙂

Built by a marketer who’s done it before

DGMG is created by Dave Gerhardt. Hey, that’s me. I’ve built a reputation as one of the leading brand builders in marketing today through my work at Drift (VP of Marketing) and Privy (CMO). But unlike most “marketing gurus” I’ve actually done the work. I’ve grown from individual contributor to CMO in five years. I’ve created 
a category, published books, launched events, delivered millions in ARR, and helped the companies I’ve worked at get massive valuations.

But I started DGMG because above all, I love marketing and teaching it to others. And I’ve seen first-hand how you can grow your career in marketing through passion and learning. We live in a time where it’s easier than ever to get an education thanks to books, audiobooks, podcast, YouTube, events, groups, online courses and more. But through DGMG I can help you cut through the noise and provide you with the marketing lessons they didn’t teach you in school.
