    • Why it is important
    • How to choose the right marketing activities
    • A few words of warning – online versus offline, new shiny things and one-offs
  • James Culliton of The American Marketing Association (1948) saidthe role of a marketing manager is the “mixer of ingredients”
    The marketing mix includes price, product, distribution, and promotion and forms the entire promotional campaign.
  • Marketing Mix:
    A combination of factors that can be controlled by a company to influence consumers to purchase its products
    The more engaging and closer you are to your customers, the more influence you will have over them.

    You have to invest time, money and resources into your marketing activities.
    Anyone who has been in business for a period of time can tell you about all the marketing and promotional activities that did not work andhow much it cost them.
