CHESHIRE AND WARRINGTON BUSINESS GROWTH PROGRAMME: Marketing Strategy for Business
About this Event
This workshop is for any business that wants to understand how to get the best out of their marketing budgets, resources and activities. Marketing is at the core of every business, and an understanding of the key principles will help every business to maximise their opportunities and minimise their risks.
Many people simply start implementing tactics without considering their overall strategy and as a result they can waste time and money pushing their marketing in the wrong direction. A well-developed marketing strategy will direct your activity and focus your efforts.
In this session we discuss the key principles of marketing in a real world, straightforward way that is designed for small to medium businesses. We will focus down on what matters, what you absolutely need to do, and how long to spend doing it. The importance of brand, product and company lifecycle, your customers and how to measure success.
We will apply a practical model for marketing that has been proven and tested across hundreds of companies which is easy to understand and implement in their specific segment. A model which will allow attendees to review what they are doing and refresh their activity.
The session is based on real world experience with businesses and avoids getting bogged down in unnecessary theory and navel gazing. The session is practical, applicable and understandable, allowing businesses to apply the principles straight away.
