Effective Marketing Planning Bundle

Insiders Guide to Market Analysis, Forecasting and The Value Chain

Planning is one of the most important parts of getting your Marketing right but often an area which is overlooked.

Some people believe Marketing is just about selling, creating promotional material or advertising, but it is far more than that.

Making a product or providing a service is relatively straightforward. The hard part is ensuring that you can offer it to your customers and potential customers at a price they are willing to pay and makes you a profit.

This course shows you...
  • How to conduct robust market and SWOT analysis
  • The different TOOLS and TECHNIQUES one can adopt to produce a forecast
  • The relationship between COSTS, PRICES & PROFIT so that students can
    better understand how these key elements fit together and interact.
