    Marketing Basics Course (Marketing Management Courses, Brand Management Courses, Marketing Courses Cape Town, Marketing Communication Courses) :Course Outline

    Welcome to the battlefield that is sales and marketing, per this workshop we will concentrate on the marketing aspect of sales, which may seem contradictory, but isn’t. Many people think marketing is selling, selling is when someone buys your product, marketing is waving a red flag, inviting people to view your product. Once delegates understand who their customer is and can define a target market and define their product, they will then learn about the many types of marketing, such as direct marketing, this news letter is direct marketing. Active marketing would be an online forum where customers can leave comments and ask questions, in social media the hash tag # is used in direct and active marketing.TIP: The marketing mix is also called the four P’s: Product, Price, Place and Promotion Communicating with the customer is essential to marketing, communication should be simple, understandable and entertaining. Think of the Nando’s campaign, it was funny, two companies benefited and it was relevant to our local culture and sense of humour (entertaining). The only thing it didn’t blatantly display was a pitch. The pitch, done by a good orator, will be the thing that makes you buy ice from him in winter. Communication is a two-way street and as much as you market your product to your consumer, you need the consumer to give you feedback on what they like and dislike about your product. It’d a small world with the internet and if you don’t give your customers a voice; they will simply take their business somewhere else. Never has competition and rivalry in business been so intense. Not even multi-nationals can afford to ignore their customers and it is indeed from some of these companies that we glean our best skills from. A multi-national with an extensive customer dialogue base is Unilever, and in an age where transparency matter more than ever, they have taken up the challenge, telling customers exactly what they put in their products. The goal of marketing is to get the customer from a shopper to buyer, and then to a repeat buyer status. Brand loyalty and rewards for loyal customers such as promotions or loyalty cards with a point system, along with educating and informing your market are the ultimate goal in marketing. We round off our course on the marketing funnel, and then we spend the last module focusing on marketing mistakes. What not to do, and there are a legion of marketing mistakes as examples.
