What do private equity firms say are the greatest challenges of marketing their firms for deal flow?

"We don't have a defined strategy, but also don't know where to start."
"We've tried marketing, but we're not sure how to measure what works."
"We're pretty good at biz dev, but don't know how to add marketing to the mix."
"We just need to get organized but don't know how."

When private equity firms struggle with these challenges, the best thing they can do is learn how to:

  • Define their strategy, including whom they want to reach and what messages they'll share
  • Evaluate their marketing efforts from both a macro and micro-level to determine if their efforts are creating stronger relationships with prospects
  • Refrain from "marketing to the void" in which well-intentioned marketing initiatives end up being seen by no one and are therefore not worth the investment
In my estimation, Jack is one of the top thought leaders in PE marketing.
