Whether you’re a start-up or an established business, you need a marketing strategy, a document that says who you are, what you do, how you do it and why you will succeed. A marketing strategy will help you make informed decisions, raise funds, write sales pitches and communicate consistently and effectively to your target audience.
To write a winning marketing strategy, you need to really know who your ideal customers are, what they need and desire, how they think and how they behave, both in real life and online.
This workshop, delivered by the Advisors of the Business Solutions Centre, will take you through the necessary steps to write a marketing strategy for your business, as well as give you insights into how to use market research techniques to find out as much as you can about your target customers.
The workshop will be very practical, so make sure to bring pen and paper to get the most out of it!
