20 October –
So what is marketing and why is it so important for your business?
Well one way of getting your head around the concept is to think of marketing as a management process responsible for identifying, anticipating and satisfying customer requirements profitably. In simple terms it is about getting the right product or service to the right customer in the right place at the right time. But in today’s complex and uncertain world, marketing isn’t just a process it is in fact an attitude of mind. It requires that when making “marketing decisions” you look at these from the viewpoint of the customer. Why? Because more than likely, your business is operating in a crowded and busy marketplace where the customer is in control and much to your dismay spoiled for choice!
This half day course introduces you to the principle marketing activities and techniques necessary for your business to achieve and retain a competitive advantage.
- Understanding customers - (how they make buying decisions and the important role of market research)
- Understanding the Product – (thinking in terms of features and benefits & lifecycles)
- Understanding the Environment – (a practical solution to help you keep ahead of the competition!)
- Segmenting, targeting & positioning - (maximising your chances of selling your wares)
- The importance of pricing and branding
- The communication mix (a few ways of getting your key messages across to the right people)
