The world of marketing communications is exciting, sometimes unpredictable – always challenging and evolving. We constantly have to find new ways of communicating effectively with our markets even more cost effectively. The development of long term customer relationships are critical to marketing success and the focal point of a lot of marketing communication, with increasing emphasis on adding value.
The elements of the promotional mix – branding, companies, communications, employees, product performance, competitive activities – all influence the customer. Corporate branding is an integral part of communication and how customers perceive corporate values. This means that the jigsaw of marketing communications should be planned, coherent, integrated and consistent. This course will enable you to develop effective, integrated marketing communications strategies and plans that enable customers to identify with brands, products/services and organisations.
By all means, bring your pencil case, and yes, there will be handouts, but there will be a lot more discourse, debate, improvisation, role play, technology, practice and group dynamics. The training will be conducted in a friendly, fun atmosphere, which not only allows for different learning styles, but respects each delegate as an individual and ensures each one is challenged and derives maximum benefit from the course. Our aim is that you will be highly stimulated and encouraged to rethink.
This course is for individuals who pilot the development of advertising and ommunications activities in their firms, including those who work through external advertising agencies or internal advertising departments.
