Slides from our Free Webinar: Developing Marketing Strategy.

Developing and implementing a Marketing Strategy is sometimes an elusive pursuit. This may be because the term itself has different meanings, some of them vague and others quite narrow. Yet, most marketers agree that having a sound Marketing Strategy provides direction and enables success.

This free webinar will present a methodology for developing an effective Marketing Strategy, presenting a process that includes understanding core values, vision and market situation before determining objectives and developing strategy.

It is ideal for marketing managers and executives whose companies rely on them to lead the marketing function.
