Econsultancy’s Strategic Marketing Planning (SG)

Overview

There are many reasons why businesses review and change their marketing strategies. They may be reviewing the marketing budget, planning to enter a new market, or even launching a new product.

Regardless, a new marketing strategy requires a new marketing plan to ensure everyone is working toward the new business goal.

Yet when business owners and senior marketers are drafting a marketing plan, they may struggle with getting started, knowing what to include, and understanding when the marketing plan is complete.

This course, Strategic Marketing Planning, will help attendees overcome the obstacles they face during the planning process. Participants will learn about the whole marketing planning process, complete exercises which cover marketing objectives, strategies and tactics, and produce a comprehensive strategic marketing plan.

Additionally, attendees will be provided with a marketing plan template, a checklist of what to include in the marketing plan, and a set of questions to ask themselves to ensure that the new plan covers everything needed by the marketing team.
