There are no entry requirements, so employees who are currently working in a marketing role or wish to move in that direction will benefit from this industry-accredited course.
What’s Covered in the Course?
- The course begins with a definition and outline of the functions of marketing and how it is aligned to – but different from – the sales function. Marketing’s pivotal role in driving the success of the company is a theme that runs throughout the course.
- Marketing is a strategic function and therefore requires a complete understanding of the business, its customers and its products. Failure to consider any of these key variables results in a less-than-optimum presence in the market. These elements are covered in modules on the importance of marketing and its roles and the fundamentals of marketing.
- Marketing must understand the difference between customers’ needs and wants and be able to target these needs. For this, market information and analysis is fundamental to the marketer’s success, as well as knowledge of the business’s competition.
- A study of the basic ‘marketing mix’ (product, price, promotion, place) encourages students to analyse their own marketing environment in a practical, hands-on way.
- Creating a marketing plan that incorporates both offline and online marketing strategies – and setting budgets for the plan, in order to optimise your marketing spend – rounds off the course content.
